1.9 HorribleJul 30 2021
The male "supervisor" at Bishop Airport in Flint, Michigan was rude, ridiculous and a horrible representative for Alamo. I had a confirmed reservation through Kayak on my cell phone but he could not find it on his computer. Therefore, I was refused a rental car! The reservation had been made well in advance. Without any assistance from him, I had to make a completely new reservation in order to get a car two days later which ruined the first two days of my vacation. Never again!!

Would have been nice to have the more comfortable vehicle that I had originally reserved but I also get that there aren’t that many rentals out there during these times.

Dirty TruckNot a whole lot. It wasn’t a great experience. I guess I liked that I could drive?The staff was quite short with me during pick up. They made me put a 500 dollar hold on my card that I was not informed of when booking and acted like it was obvious and like I was foolish for not knowing about it. Then I got the actual vehicle and it was absolutely filthy. It hadn’t been cleaned at all.

Cars are onsite, no shuttle ride required only a short walk.Drop off instructions weren't given at time of pick up, there's 2 designated spots for dropping cars off that you are supposed to park in. Not a huge deal, just wasn't aware so it took a few extra minutes to figure out what to do when I pulled in the lot.
9.6 ExcellentAug 6 2017
Always a good dealFree upgrade, easy drop off, unlimited milesPickup was slow - the customer service representative kept saying "excuse me" and walking into the back room for 5-10 min. The other rep. at the counter got through THREE different groups of people in the time it took us to get a car, and we were pre-booked with no hang ups.

Beware - Dollar Charges more on Credit Card as Deposit upon Pick-up!!!Dollar was a bust, but Enterprise came to the rescue!I have a $500 limit on my credit card, the rental with insurance was was quoted at $425, I was fine with the price. Was not worried as my credit card had $500 remaining credit. That was until Dollar then charged my credit card over $525, without telling me, my credit card was then declined, because of the $500 limit. Dollar is not able to delete the charge after the card had been swiped, I was standing there with no car, and completely stressed, as I had no other card on me except my debit card, which Dollar does not accept. If dollar would have just stated, before they swiped my card, "your initial charge will be $525, is that okay?" then I would have not gotten the insurance and been on my way. It was a nightmare, but Enterprise accepted my debit, so I was able to get a vehicle, even though is was at a slightly higher price.

Fumes for rentReally?Reserved a mid- sized compact but got a tiny mini-fridge on wheels for my visit to Sub-Zero Clarkston, MI. Even worse, the interior gave off noxious paint fumes ( how was this possible)? And dangerous: the windshield washer fluid was either empty, or the sprayer was broken in that p o c Hyundai Accent.

Bait and SwitchReserved a car at Dollar using Kayak and when I got there to pick the car up I was told that they do not accept debit cards or cash. We stopped using credit cards 5 years ago and this has never been an issue before, so after a bit of panic I called my daughter and had her make the hour trip to rent the car using her car. Since she is under 25 they added $28 per day to the charges. Than they added another $15 per day for me to a driver on it. We then get the car, about 90 minutes after we arrived at the desk, and it is not an Intermediate model, but a Fiesta compact. Go back to the desk and are told that is what I reserved. At this point we are way late leaving for the funeral we are attending, so we just take the car and leave as we have no more time to argue with the desk agent. Later I pull up my reservation and see that I had in fact rented a Intermediate sized car and 4 people ended up spending 20 hours in a little tin car because of the desk agent lying to me. I am a bit upset at Kayak for not notifying me of this locations payment policies and steaming mad at Dollar for their dishonest desk agent.

This people customer service is the worst I have ever seenNothing, the person at the front desk was disgusting treating us. It was charging for everything thus the rate sky rocket to almost 1K for the 10 days. I think was the result of seeing that we booked there Kayak. At the end we did not rent the car... We went with another company near home and they service and customer care was EXCELLENT, they even upgraded us to an SUV since they did not have the size car that we rented available.Everything and specially the man at front desk. The company should fire this guy since is making lose money for them.

Not much helpCarWhen to the service counter. It costed 100. A night for this car and they wanted to add 13.50 to have my spouse drive it. They made us walk way out in a dark parking lot and did NOT bring the car to us. Then there were door dents not reported so we had to walk all the way back up and the counter person did not come out and look at them. We waited to show the dents for 2 other clients which took about another 1/2 hour of our time. Just poorly managed... not very good customer service and costly.

Easy pickup.I picked up the car in the dark. Once it was light I could see the disgusting condition of the car. I called to complain and they were sorry but no help. I have pictures if anyone is interested. Avis isn’t interested as they never contacted me after. Poor customer service.
8.4 ExcellentDec 30 2019
Price was great. Employees behind the counter for pick up and return were extremely pleasant. Loved the roominess of the vehicle.The car had a funny smell to it, like smelly gym clothes were left in it. Other companies have you prepay for gas if you’d like ata cheaper price so you can return the car without a full tank of gas. Find it helpful sometimes as you may be running behind and don’t have time to fill up or can’t find a gas station near by. When checking in and out there was only one person helping behind the desk. Would have been nicer if there was two people to keep things moving quicker.

I liked that the pick-up and drop-off was at the terminalWe ordered a premium car--Impala and instead given a full-sized car. Though my paperwork said Impala, since we booked through carRentals..com, Avis wouldn't honor it. The first car that we were given reeked of cigarettes. We then received a Ford Fusion and, although clean, was too small for 5 people

The car had scratches and a smoke smell that wasn't already filled out on the check-in slip. I didn't want to be charged for them so it took awhile to notate those and then stand in line again to confirm those with the check-in person. Just an added step that could have easily been taken care of before I got to the car. Also, the price for about 12 hours of use seemed excessive.

Agent was rude at pick up. I explained that I need to get to a doctors appointment. She insisted on going through every question although I have a profile with Budget. Then said we had to wait because car just came on and needed to be washed. After much discussion she made us sign as is waiver. She said we should have taken an earlier flight. No earlier flight was available and our flight was late. Which she said was not her fault

Pickup and drop off were find. No issues with that nor the staff, other than when I dropped off and explained of some issues, the attendant did not seem too concerned about it.I picked up my car and it was dirty. Garbage in the door, crumbs in the cup holders. Shortly after I picked the car up, the check engine light came on. I attempted to call the 1-800 number on the brochure given to me at pickup. The menu was unable to connect me with a person based on the reason for my call. So....I had a car for 3 days that I didn't really drive because I was unable to get assistance with the issue. When I dropped it off and explained what had happened, the staff just said, "Yeah, you can never really get through on the 800 number." What in the world! If that is the case, then why are customers not given a local number to call? She offered to give me a card to call the manager, but at that point....what was the point in doing that? I told her that I would probably just not use their service in the future. She just said "ok. Sorry for the inconvenience." I was very unimpressed with the service provided to me during my rental with your company.

Car rental insurance in Flint

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Flint car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Flint.


Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Flint car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Flint

  • A convenient and easy way to move from one place to another in a large city like Flint is by using Flint car rentals. Although public transportation systems, such as Flint Bus Center, Your Ride, and Mass Transportation Authority are well networked and cheaper, they are less flexible and inconvenient compared to having a ride from car rentals in Flint. For example, buses might not be available late at night, while rental cars in Flint will help you move around the city at any time of the day or night. With rental cars, you’ll be able to visit Sloan Museum and the historic Crossroads Village, among other places, with ease.
  • It is easy to pick up a car from some of Flint car rentals located at the airport. For instance, at Flint Bishop Airport, you’ll find Alamo, Budget, Herts, Dollar, Thrifty, Avis, Enterprise, and National. The Budget agency is located near the baggage claim, at the east end of the terminal.
  • Flint has a well-networked road system, but since it’s a big city, there is usually a lot of traffic. Navigating through the city roads can be challenging, it’s recommended to rent a car equipped with GPS. Some roads and streets, such as those near residential or marketplaces, may have a number of cyclists and pedestrians who frequently cross the roads. As such, be vigilant while driving through such areas.
  • To avoid spending an extra hour or two on the road during rush hour, give yourself extra time to get to your destination. The rush hour in Flint starts at about 5am to10am and from 5pm to around 8pm. On weekends, the traffic is less. Note that June, July, August, and December are the busiest tourist months, and traffic is likely to be more than usual.

If you’re on a business trip and you’ll be driving within the city, a luxury mid-sized car will help you move to nearly any place in the city center with ease. When visiting upscale areas, such as Grand Blanc, an exotic sports rental car will allow you to travel in style.

  • Although each designated area has speed limits, drive carefully when exploring Flint to avoid colliding with the Flint Taming Traffic Task Force, as the penalties for speeding are hefty.

When entering a work zone, the speed limit is 45mph and 20mph when passing through a school zone. When you move out of the city and onto gravel or unimproved road, the speed limit is 55mph.

  • The average gas price in Flint is about $2.76 per gallon. Depending on the type and size of the car rented, filling up the gas tank will cost approximately $33 to $44, which is usually cheaper as you move away from the city center or airports.

  • There are several parking spots in Flint’s city center. Flat Lot is located on Kearsley Street, open from Monday to Friday from 6am to 5pm. The flat rate is around $5.
