KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Ferndale

  • As the city doesn't have a particularly large public-transportation system, car rentals in Ferndale are definitely one of the best ways to get around the area. By having access to Ferndale car rentals, you won’t have to worry about long waiting times for the bus or being unable to go to places where there's no bus stop. You'll also be able to go to locations that are farther from the city center, like the Boston Tea Room and the Detroit Institute of Arts.
  • If you'll be traveling to the area via plane, you can always pick up car rentals in Ferndale from Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW). To get to the car-rental center, you can simply follow the signs to the Ground Transportation area, and then board a courtesy shuttle bus to take you to the rental-car location. To return car rentals in Ferndale, you will bring them back to the same place where you rented them. There are several rental companies that are located at the DTW airport location, including Alamo, Budget, and Enterprise.
  • Ferndale is a relatively small town, so driving in the city is usually an easy task. When you're driving in downtown Ferndale or in nearby downtown Detroit, you will likely come across some jaywalkers and cyclists. It's best to always be on the lookout for these people; by driving watchfully, you'll avoid trouble.
  • If you’re driving towards Detroit, you’ll want to make sure that you avoid driving on the road during rush hour. You’ll find that rush hour usually goes from about 6 am to 10 am, and in the afternoon from 3 to around 7 pm. During the spring and winter months, the region will typically have quite a bit of rain and snow. You should always drive slower in these weather conditions and make sure that your rental car is properly supplied with snow chains on the tires if you think you’ll encounter snow when you’re in Ferndale.
  • Book your car hire in Ferndale at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate hire cars in Ferndale are around 22% cheaper than other car types, on average

If you’re visiting during the winter months or with a group of people, you may want to consider renting a more spacious vehicle. SUVs or vans can be good options, as these vehicles can fit numerous passengers and should still have plenty of room for cargo.

When driving near a construction site or in a school zone, the speed limit may be somewhere around 20 to 25 mph.

These parking options start at around $1.15 an hour, although parking in them is free on Sundays and recognized holidays. Many businesses also have private parking lots that you can use if you’re shopping in the shopping center or dining at a restaurant. Hotels likewise provide parking lots to guests.

We originally wanted a sedan, but we were “upgraded” to an SUV. The car was clean but not great to drive. It felt like we were being pushed around by the wind. There was a very annoying beeping sound whenever you moved even slightly. The screen which we connected our phones too kept switching off so we had to keep adding the destination to google maps.

Two times they said one thing and did another. Overall was left feeling like they cared more to nickel and dime the customer than the actual customer. When signing up for the fuel prepay option, they had a sign that showed the price per gallon would be $3.56/gallon and they also verbally confirmed this pricing. But upon returning the vehicle, I noticed that the paperwork said it was $3.68/gallon. It was my fault for not reading more carefully, but they had just said one thing and then immediately printed another. Further, when returning the vehicle I called ahead saying I wouldn't be able to make it to them by their closing time (1pm on Sundays - very inconvenient), they said it's ok to return the next day, they'll just add an additional rental day, which I thought was fair. I explicitly asked if there are other fees associated with this, and they said no, just the additional day. When I returned the vehicle I get the bill and they added an extension fee and a late return fee. After pointing this out, they agreed to waive the extension fee but kept the late fee (but why is there a late fee when you return on the day you extended to?). The vehicle itself was fine. Would just like some accountability for the statements you make to customers.
