KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Southfield

  • Hiring Southfield car rentals provide you with various traveling benefits. First, rental cars offer affordable traveling options. They offer the freedom and flexibility to travel to various locations in Southfield, saving the hassle of catching public transport schedules, luggage fees, and cramped spaces. In addition, car rentals in Southfield are reliable, so you won't have to worry about non-operational days. With a car rental, you can comfortably and conveniently travel to the city's top sights like Bauervic Wood Park, Carpenter Lake Nature Preserve, Arctic Ring of Life Polar Bear, and Sea Otter.
  • When flying to Southfield, you will arrive via a flight at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County airport. The airport lies 20 miles from the city center. Even though the airport does not have car rental companies on-site, you can find a car rental center on the premises. A free shuttle bus provides rides to the rental car. You can find shuttle stops near the McNamara Terminal at the Ground Transportation Center. The car rental center has over ten agencies offering a massive fleet of cars. We recommend making prior schedules before arrivals for easy pick-up.
  • It is important to consider the driving laws for safe navigation of car rentals in Southfield. All drivers and passengers in the car's front seat must have seatbelts. All passengers under 16 in the car must have seat belts. When traveling with children under eight, they must be in booster seats. Children under four must sit in the back seat of the cars. Also, we recommend following the 3-4 second rule to allow space between you and the cars in front and behind you. More space may be required during adverse weather conditions. Texting when driving is prohibited. Always use headlights during heavy rains, fog, or snow. Always yield to pedestrians, cyclists, and service vehicles like road maintenance cars.
  • Rush hour can get hectic in Southfield. The rush hour typically occurs between 7 am to 9 am and 5 pm to 6 pm. Avoid driving during these hours if you do not wish to be stuck in traffic for hours. During these hours, avoid driving on Southfield Freeway, Lodge Freeway, Telegraph Road, and Eight Mile Road, as they are the worst traffic hotspots.
