When choosing the type of vehicle to rent from any of the cheap car rentals in Windsor, consider the number of passengers and your location. An SUV or minivan is one of the recommended vehicle options for groups larger than four people. However, if you intend to drive these kinds of vehicles, parking spaces might need to be organized in advance. If the majority of your destinations are in the city center, think about getting a small car, such as a compact car. The modest parking spaces in the city center are just big enough for smaller cars. These vehicles may also fit through most of the congested city center streets.
Windsor's standard speed limit is 30 mph, but there are several roads where the restriction is a little higher or lower. For instance, you should not go faster than 25 mph on Sandwich Street, Matchette Road, and Malden Road. At Campbell Avenue, the speed limit increases to 45 mph. Your speed limit should be lower than 20 mph in areas around schools and hospitals.
Consider parking in Lot 5 (Dieppe Riverfront) or Lot 10 (Park at Goyeau) for about C$2.32 (approximately $1.75) per hour while in the city center if you need a secure spot to leave your rental car in Windsor. Consider parking for free in Public Parking Garage #2 if you need to park quickly and for a shorter period of time than two hours. Only people visiting Windsor who are staying in hotels should take use of hotel parking.

High quality customer service doesn’t just happen. Iwill definitely return and thank you! Dave Thornton and family
Cons:Nothing at all.

One location in Windsor
Cons:Price gouging and over charging by Avis. No care for people, all about the money. Child’s car seat was dirty and quite a hassle for them. Car was ok but service from Avis representatives was poor and disorganized.
Cons:More expensive than anticipated. Partially my fault making reservation. I didn’t check pick up location closely enough.
Pros:Clean car.Quick pickup and drop off.
Cons:Wish it was a little cheaper
Pros:Vehicle was new.
Cons:Wait time for processing rental was greater than one hour.
Pros:The agent was very nice with the transaction.
Cons:It took me at least an hour to get my car. There were 3 agents working. Since I was doing a turn around flight this utilized far too much of my needed time. This was the LONGEST I've ever had to wait and get a car and the issue wasn't stock. There were plenty of cars on hand.
Cons:I booked a car through Kayak to be available to me when I landed at the Detroit Airport. The car I reserved, for some reason, is not at the Detroit Airport. It's in Windsor Ontario. And the great price I received was in Canadian dollars so it wasn't so great after all. And when I attempted to contact customers service, there is none to be found. Nice job Kayak!

8.0 Very good
Cons:Since only one agent to serve both Avis and Budget, it slows down the check in process.
Pros:Nothing. They didn't give me the car I booked. They kept the nicer car for other potential bookings. When i asked for the car i booked they argued... "it shouldn't matter since your saving money" ya Two dollars! i brought the car back and they claimed i put a small crack in the headlight. I didnt!
Cons:Terrible customer service. Scammers Rude and made fun of my accent
Cons:Instead of telling me when I booked the reservation that they were sold out at the airport I flew into. It booked my car reservation somewhere in Canada. I ended up using an Uber.
Pros:friendly staff, closeness of the rental office to the vehicle
Cons:long wait due to staff shortage, wrong/no instructions on toll fees
Cons:I found out that the reservation was not st DTW, but rather at a smaller regional airport and, though on the phone the representative was very kind and transferred the reservation for no charge, at DTW the representative would not honor that and insisted on doubling the rate. So I left and rented from Thrifty.
Pros:Tried to rent a car 10 times and was rejected saying price no longer available. Website is a. Mess! Need to fix your tech issues before any more customers are lost!!!!
One location in Windsor
Pros:They had car ready when I got there.
Cons:They tried to get over on price.
Cons:not at the airport,no shuttle bus , who the hell want to take taxi and get your stupid car . waste of my time
Cons:Change price 100% on pick up. After 2hours of unprofessionally conversation get price I was code!! Sorry Almo talk to your employees who work for you .. In future make sure I don't have to go over again!!
8.8 Very good
Pros:The manager made things work for us. Much appreciated.
Cons:I did not like that my reservation was made for Windsor Canada when I specified Detroit Airport as pick up.
Pros:Clean car, good gas mileage. Simple and quick return.
Cons:Getting the car, long lines.
Pros:It had wheels
Cons:The car was dirty and rattled with every little bump in the road. But the most annoying issues was that the car charger didn't work therefore my gps died and I was lost 20 miles from my destination. I called alamo and they said no problem, just go to the nearest alamo to swap cars. Well... the nearest alamo was 50 miles away. Impossible to do, i was in the area on business. Ended up having to spend $150 for a new gps that would plug into the USP port. Very dissatisfied all around. Never again.....

Cons:I made a reservation a week in advance, but the car wasn't there when I showed up because someone else extended their rental, and they had no other sedans at all! Had to go with a different company and pay more.
Cons:I had reserved a vehicle through them. Three days before the reservation date I was emailed that to vehicle was over booked. I the email it said that they would like to offer me alternatives, but I was given zero and got the run around, oh and of course they were closed over the weekend when I got the email and I had to wait until a day before my trip to sort it out. No one helped at all, given zero alternatives, and just told to call priceline/discount company. I will never use them. Had to pay $500 more for a car since it was so close to when I needed it.
Pros:Staff was great, helpful
Cons:I was surprised to find no rental counter at Windsor station, just a video kiosk marked Discount (not even Eurocar). After calling, it took 20 minutes for an agent to arrive to pick us up and drive us another 20 minutes to the rental counter, where we took another 20 minutes to finally get the car and be on our way. That was nowhere advertised or stated, so it came as a surprise. As a minimum, I would suggest their confirmation email ask us to call 15 minutes before arriving so the shuttle can be there. Or they could monitor the train arrival times and just be there when our train arrives. Then you need to drop the car to the rental office over an hour before the train. Something to keep in mind.
Pros:Friendly staff willing to help and provide the best that organization has to offer.
Cons:Poorly maintained fleet of cars by the associates of Europcar Car Rentals i.e. Discount Car & Truck Rentals. Inability to appreciate the time of customer. Misleading the customer of the location of rental facility.
Pros:Never going to try there again
Cons:The fact that I booked my van rental two months in advance to make sure I had one for my trip and the day I was going to pick it up there was nothing available make me so mad. I was super lucky to have found a van with enterprise at the last minute! After that I will always rent from them. They have the best service!
Pros:Employees were terrific - there was a massive flood and they seemed to be doing a terrific job of handling all the issues that came along with it
