Can I drive to Canada with a rental car from Detroit?

There are no restrictions for driving car rentals from Detroit to Canada. However, driving to Mexico in Detroit rental cars might not be as straightforward. If you wish to drive an economy car rental into Canada, you need a non-resident insurance card. This will be issued at the rental location. It is free and indicates that you have valid vehicle insurance in Canada. Traveling into Mexico is similar, only that you will have fewer car rental locations in Detroit offering these services. If you’re planning to travel into Mexico with a rental car from Detroit, inform the rental company before booking. You’ll also be required to purchase Mexican auto insurance to insure the vehicle while operating in Mexico. Some vehicles such as passenger van rental and electric car rental are not available for cross-border travel.

Can you rent a rental car in Detroit without a credit card?

Many car rentals in Detroit provide flexible payment options. You can pay for your rental car using credit cards, debit cards, cash, and pre-payment. However, only credit and debit cards can be used to pay the deposit. The rest are only admissible when clearing up your balance after the rental period. Credit cards are the most preferred method of payment for Detroit car rentals. Most companies will accept credit cards from major companies such as VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover Network. The name on the card should match the renter’s name for any payments to be accepted. You can also use debit cards, but only those with the VISA, Discover, and MasterCard logos are accepted. And at airport rental locations, debit cards will only be accepted if accompanied by a ticketed return travel schedule.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Detroit?

Before driving in Detroit, it’s recommended to familiarize yourself with the local laws. In Detroit, the driver, front passenger, and children below 16 should wear seatbelts at all times. Children below four should be secured in a child seat, while those between four and eight years should use a booster seat as per the car’s manufacturer’s instructions. Driving under the influence is illegal in Detroit, and if caught with a blood alcohol content level higher than 0.08%, you will be fined. Distracted driving is also a major criminal offense, and drivers can only use their cellphones while driving if it is a hands-free device. Finally, if you spot an emergency or an emergency vehicle with flashing lights, reduce your speed or move over one lane if possible. Check with the Detroit Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) if there have been any recent traffic law updates.

What documents does an international traveler need to rent a car in Detroit?

International travelers have access to cheap car rentals in Detroit. You can rent anything from a large passenger van rental to a luxury car rental in Detroit. However, it’s required to be at least 21 years of age and hold a valid driver’s license from your home country. The license is only considered valid if it is unexpired and bears a photo of the renter. Those driver’s licenses in a language using non-Latin alphabet will be required to produce an International Driving Permit along with their driver’s license. If you don’t have the International Driving Permit, an official type-written translation must be presented with the driver’s license. You cannot rent a car with the permit alone. Photocopies of your driver’s license, learner’s permits, and temporary permits cannot be used to rent a car in Detroit.
