KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Romulus

  • Romulus car rentals are a great way to explore this town in Michigan and everything it has to offer. There is public transportation available in the form of buses, but these buses are few and far between and can take a long time to reach their destinations. With car rentals in Romulus, Michigan, you will not have to spend time waiting for the bus; you can just hop into your vehicle and hit the road to explore the area on your own schedule and via your own chosen routes. For example, you could take a trip into Detroit and drive north to Lake St. Clair.
  • If you are arriving in Romulus by plane, you will likely be landing at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW). There are several car rental agencies operating out of DTW, so you will have plenty of options to choose from upon arrival. There are desks for companies such as Alamo, Hertz, Enterprise, Dollar, and more at the rental car center at the airport. After you claim your luggage, follow the signs for Ground Transportation. You will need to board a free shuttle to reach the rental car center. You will find the shuttle bus pickup points in the Ground Transportation Centers of the parking garages near the McNamara Terminal and on the Big Blue Deck of the Evans Terminal.
  • Romulus, Michigan, is a suburb of Detroit. The roads here are in good condition, although you may encounter the occasional pothole.

This was the worst car rental experience I have ever had. I waited 2 hours in line. There were about 30 ppl in front of me when I arrived and two Budget employees. Once I got my car all the windows were rolled down and the car smelled like weed. There were no alternatives. I had to leave the windows down all the time and drive around in 30 degree Michigan weather. Terrible experience.

Everything was fine. When I asked to extend the rental from another 18 hours, though, I was told the fee would have been $103. That is excessive.

The lady at the Detroit airport pickup office was incredible! She was kind, efficient, and extremely helpful. There was an issue with the first vehicle I picked up. The car smelled like someone had been smoking in the vehicle. That was not acceptable for a week rental. When I went back to the counter and pointed out this problem the person helping me was apologetic and immediately arranged for another vehicle. I would hire this person to work in my office.

2019 Camry was a great car.

$13/day to add a spouse as a driver is ridiculous. Every other car rental company that I’ve used does this for free. Will not be using Thrifty in the future on this basis.
