Rolling through Motor City

Rolling through
Motor City

These days when you visit Detroit, it’s not just the lustrous, Golden-era history that will enchant you, but the revival of the city’s culture bursting around every corner. From the Heidelberg Project, a community project that fills downtown neighborhoods with art, to the young chefs raising the bar on the city’s already stellar eating options, you’ll have plenty to take in.

Pick up your Detroit airport car rental alternative upon arrival to get into all of Detroit’s nooks and crannies — and you won’t be able to miss the iconic local history of Motown and automobiles.

Detroit favorites

While there’s nothing as pressing as the present, Detroit wouldn’t be the cultural hub it is today if not for the past.

Motown Historical Museum

Step into this small house that was the birthplace of Motown music, and belt out a tune in the same Studio A where the likes of The Supremes and Marvin Gaye laid down their tracks.

The Henry Ford Museum

In the suburb of Dearborn, you’ll find this extensive collection of exhibits on the evolving technology of automobiles, plus fascinating historical memorabilia, like the presidential limo from JFK’s last ride.

Museum of African American History

Presenting a broad view of the African-American experience from the Underground Railroad to the present, this large collection of artifacts, art, and stories provides an educational and moving journey.

Hit the road

Michigan is surrounded by water, which means when you book your Detroit car rental alternative on Turo, you’re not far from a scenic escape into nature or a relaxing change of pace.

Book the perfect car
Saugatuck

For the quintessential Lake Michigan beach town experience, book your Detroit car rental alternative on Turo to snap out your towel on these fine dunes. You can also quaintly sip cider or cocoa in town.

Cuyahoga Valley National Park

After you get over the indignation of having to drive two hours into Ohio for hike-worthy terrain, direct your Detroit car rental alternative to this park, where your efforts will be rewarded with cold, hard waterfalls.

Ann Arbor

For a small-town feel in a city that isn’t actually small, head over to the home of the University of Michigan, where you can delight in the refined arts and dining scene, or football fandom.

Christina and her crew were fantastic. They were flexible with waiting to hear from me when my plane landed before coming to pick me up and being available to meet me a little earlier than I’d scheduled. The drivers who picked me up and dropped me off were friendly and professional. They are super close to the airport, so it’s no less convenient than the shuttle to the car rental companies. The car was clean and ran well- exactly as described. Nothing fancy, but did what I needed it to do and saved me tons of money vs car rental companies or lyft. Highly recommend.

This was a wonderful first experience using Turo. Aurfan's car was clean and fit all our luggage. His wife dropped off the car and was kind enough to walk me through how to use the app and check in. Our flight arrived early and they did their best to arrive earlier than the arranged time to accommodate us. Returning the car was just as easy. Thank you for the smooth process!

Mazda 3 2006

The original car I’d booked was damaged beyond use by the previous renter. Christina and her husband quickly substituted another vehicle, a much newer and lower-mileage RAV4. I drove it 830 miles over three days and it performed flawlessly: easily cruised at 75 on the highway, covered dirt roads smoothly. All interior controls worked perfectly, powerful AC, all the newest safety features (Lane Departure Alert, Speed control with front radar, etc.). I got just shy of 30 mpg overall. Christina and her husband provided pickup from airport with a requirement to take whichever one of them brought the car back to their house, just a few mins away. Perfectly convenient. I’d recommend this car and Christina highly.
