KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Royal Oak

  • Car rentals in Royal Oaks offer several traveling benefits. First car rentals in Royal Oaks help save you time. Driving a car is faster than catching public transport, saving time. In addition, you do not have to wait for the bus schedules. This leaves more time to explore the city's top attractions, like Detroit Zoo and Wagner Park. Car rentals in Royal Oaks offer the flexibility hard to come with public transport. You can explore Royal Oaks like a local and provide door-to-door transportation. Getting car rentals is an excellent choice when you have no other travel option, especially for first-time visitors.
  • When taking a flight to Royal Oaks, you will most likely arrive via Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County International Airport (DTW). To pick up Royal Oaks car rentals from the airport. Once you’ve claimed your baggage, follow signs to Ground Transportation and take a courtesy shuttle to the rental car campus, located at the Northeast corner of the airport along Lucas Drive. Rental car shuttle bus stops can be found in the Ground Transportation Centers of the McNamara Terminal Parking Garage and the Big Blue Deck of the Evans Terminal. To stay ahead of the crowds, consider making earlier reservations.
  • Keeping the city's driving laws in mind is essential to navigating Royal Oaks car rentals safely. All drivers and passengers in the front seat must wear seat belts. Passengers under eight years old must be confined in appropriate safety or booster seats. Children under four years of age must sit in the back seat. Always follow the 3-4 second rule to allow space between the car in front of them. More space is often required in adverse weather conditions. It is illegal to text while driving. Keep your headlights if heavy fog and other weather conditions reduce your visibility to 500 feet. Always yield to pedestrians, cyclists, and other vehicles if it is signposted or if doing so could prevent an accident. Also, always yield to service vehicles such as road maintenance and waste collection that have come to a stop or have their lights flashing.
  • Driving car rentals in Royal Oaks can be easy but has a fair share of hurdles. Rush hour is a prime time for motorized accidents and long delays. For this reason, consider driving during off-peak hours. The rush hour peaks between 7 am to 9 am and 4 pm to 6 pm However, if you must drive during these hours, avoid the city’s traffic hotspots like Woodward Avenue, Crooks Road, South Main Street, West 13 mile road, and East 11 Mile Road.

Pros:

The drop off process was bad. The Hertz location was suppose to open at 7:30am but nobody was there. There was no drop box to leave keys. I was late for work waiting for someone to show up - they arrived to open the location at 8:15am.

Cons:

Customers shouldn't be waiting to drop off a vehicle. All locations need a way to drop off keys. It was unacceptable that I was forced to put my day on hold and be late for work because nobody was at the location to receive keys.
