Michigan car hire information

What are the driving conditions like in Michigan?

If you are looking at cheap car rental in Michigan, then it’s important to remember that this is a large state with a good road transport system, which makes car hire desirable. There are several interstate highways, with the most important being I-75, I-69, I-94 and I-96. In major urban areas like Detroit, you can expect a fair amount of traffic, which will slow you down, and summers can be hot and muggy, so you may want to consider a vehicle that has aircon, even if you’re looking at cheap car hire. The state’s proximity to Canada also means it experiences Arctic blasts of chilly and icy weather in winter, which may require winter tyres to handle all the snow. If you’re landing at Detroit Metro Airport (DTW), you will find a plethora of car hire companies.

What laws should I be aware of when driving in Michigan?

Laws are determined by state, so if you do choose to hire a car in Michigan and you then cross state lines, be mindful that the laws in the next state may be different (though they may be similar). Offenders caught driving under the influence who show signs of impaired driving ability may be arrested at any blood alcohol level. Likewise, using a cell phone is not illegal per se, but if a police officer pulls you over because using the cell phone has impaired your driving ability, you are likely to get fined. The driver and passenger in the front seat are both required to wear seatbelts. Passengers aged between four and 15 are required to wear seatbelts in the back, while passengers over 16 seated in the back are strongly advised to buckle up. Children under four must be secured in a child restraint seat according to Michigan state law, and cars may not be parked where snow ploughing is taking place.

What documents do I need to hire a car in Michigan?

You will need a valid driver’s licence, which may double as proof of identification if it has a photo. To be safe, take an international driving permit with you. Tourists who opt for car hire in Michigan can be as young as 18, but surcharges will probably apply for drivers between the ages of 18 and 20. Car rental insurance is not required by law in Michigan, but it is advisable to take it anyway. Check with your car hire company if insurance is automatically added when you use a credit card for the transaction.

Is it worthwhile to book a rental car in Michigan?

Michigan contains Detroit, one of America’s most historically influential cities. This is the place where the American car manufacturers all had their base at one point, and many still do (including Ford and General Motors). This subculture of Motor City, as Detroit is known, spawned many innovations such as Motown Records, which defined the sound of a generation; so, if you’re into history and museums, this may interest you. Michigan also gives you access to the Great Lakes, those five bodies of water that are a defining feature of the Midwest, so having a rental car gives you the freedom to move about and easily enjoy all the state has to offer. Canada is also a stone’s throw away, so check with the agent of your car rental in Michigan whether you are allowed to cross an international border into Canada.
