KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Bay City

  • Opting to use car rentals in Bay City comes with numerous benefits. With a car at your disposal, you'll enjoy unparalleled convenience and flexibility to explore the city and its surrounding attractions at your own terms and conditions. Unlike relying on public transportation, renting a car allows you to reach off-the-beaten-path destinations and maximize your time. Whether it's business meetings, leisure activities, or simply navigating the area comfortably, renting a car allows you to tailor your itinerary according to your preferences. With Bay City car rentals, you can visit the picturesque Bay City State Recreation Area, the historic Saginaw Bay for waterfront relaxation, and the intriguing Saginaw Valley Naval Ship Museum.
  • MBS International Airport (MBS) is the most convenient airport to land at when you fly to Bay City. The car rental facility at Bay City MBS International Airport is conveniently situated within the Arrivals Hall of the main terminal, easily accessible from the baggage claim area. Several well-known rental companies have counters available, each with their selection of vehicles stored just a brief distance away. Once your paperwork is finalized, a staff member will accompany you to the designated vehicle location.
  • Driving car rentals in Bay City is an exciting experience. Driving in Bay City is characterized by a generally calm and relaxed demeanor among drivers. They tend to adhere to traffic rules and regulations, contributing to a smoother traffic flow. While the city isn't teeming with bicycles, trucks, or pedestrians jaywalking, it's wise to watch out for occasional pedestrians and bikers, especially in downtown areas. Common vehicles on the road include sedans, SUVs, and pickups, with an overall respect for road rules and maintaining a steady and safe driving environment.
  • Navigating car rentals in Bay City can pose challenges during rush hours, typically around 7 am - 9 am and 5 pm - 7 pm. Euclid Avenue, Washington Avenue, and Saginaw Street intersections often experience increased traffic congestion. While Bay City generally maintains a calm driving atmosphere, these peak times can lead to slower progress and potential delays. Being mindful of these congested periods and choosing alternate routes can help mitigate difficulties while driving in the city.
  • Book your car hire in Bay City at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Bay City are around 36% more expensive than other car types, on average

A compact car or a sedan will be ideal if you're looking for city commuting and parking ease. These vehicles are nimble and maneuverable, making them well-suited for navigating traffic and narrower city streets. However, if you plan to explore the surrounding areas or need more space for passengers or cargo, an SUV or a crossover might be a better fit. These vehicles offer greater comfort and versatility for longer journeys or outdoor activities.

    In Bay City, speed limits typically range from 30 to 45 mph on city streets, ensuring safety within residential and commercial areas. On non-freeway routes, the speed limit can be as high as 65 mph. Adapting your speed to specific zones, such as school areas or downtown zones where limits are often lower, is essential. There are several speed cameras in the city, and you should therefore remain cautious and observant of posted signs, especially in potentially camera-monitored areas.

  • Where are the best places to park in Bay City?

    Parking options in Bay City vary depending on your specific area. Consider utilizing public parking lots near Center Avenue and Saginaw Street when visiting the downtown district. For those exploring the Bay City State Recreation Area, designated parking lots are accessible for convenience. Each location presents distinct parking opportunities, so observe posted signs and regulations to make the most of your visit to Bay City. If not for free, expect to pay around $2 per hour for parking in Bay City.

Pros:

Pickup was fast, nobody was at the desk for drop off.

Cons:

I reserved a large SUV (Tahoe) and got a medium sized SUV (Traverse), was not compensated for the smaller vehicle and had an uncomfortable trip. The “oil change” warning came on right away so I worried about the vehicle maintenance during my entire 11 day trip which was stressful. The vehicle was dirty and smelled like cigarettes. I don’t think I’ll rent from enterprise in the future.
