KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Flint

  • When driving cheap car rentals in Flint, it is important to follow driving regulations to avoid issues with authority. Drivers must drive on the right of the road as the left lane is strictly for passing. Always stop at stop lines before entering a crosswalk on the nearby side of the intersection. In addition, drivers have to yield the right of way to all vehicles in an intersection or vehicles approaching. Drunk driving is prohibited, and for drivers over 21, the BAC level is .08%. For drivers under 21, the BAC level limit is .02%. Always check with Flint's driving laws before driving Flint's cheap car rentals to avoid steep charges or trouble with the law.
  • When driving cheap Flint car rentals, you are likely to encounter numerous cyclists along highways. Flint offers numerous dedicated bike trails in and outside the city limits. It is important to remember that cyclists have equal rights to drivers when using roads. Remember to be mindful and respectful of their rights when driving car rentals in Flint.
  • Before getting your Flint cheap car rental, you must buy liability insurance. This is because the traffic rules in Flint require all cars to provide liability coverage. To avoid trouble with traffic authorities, it is recommended that you ensure your Flint car rental is insured.
  • 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.

Cons:

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.

Pros:

Dollar was a bust, but Enterprise came to the rescue!

Cons:

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.

Aug 2017

KAYAK

Cons:

Reserved 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.

Pros:

Price was great. Employees behind the counter for pick up and return were extremely pleasant. Loved the roominess of the vehicle.

Cons:

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.

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

Pros:

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.

Cons:

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.
