KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Mount Pleasant

  • Using car rentals in Mount Pleasant offers several advantages as opposed to relying solely on public transportation. Unlike public transportation options that may be limited, having a rental car ensures that you can easily access all corners of the region, including nearby attractions and destinations that might be off the beaten path. Furthermore, car rentals in Mount Pleasant will provide you with the flexibility to create a personalized itinerary, explore at your own pace, and make spontaneous stops along the way. A vehicle from Mount Pleasant car rentals will grant you access to the region's top attractions, including the Mt. Pleasant Discovery Museum, Mill Pond Park, and Ziibiwing Center.
  • Some of the airports serving Mount Pleasant include Gerald R. Ford International Airport (GRR), MBS International Airport (MBS), and Capital Region International Airport (LAN). Once you've arrived at GRR, proceed to the car rental counters, located near baggage claim in the main terminal. At MBS, there are car rental counters within the arrivals area, inside the airport terminal. Upon arrival at LAN, you'll get to the car rental counters situated directly in front of baggage claim in the airport terminal.
  • The driving culture in Mount Pleasant features a strong adherence to traffic rules and an orderly traffic flow. The city's roads are typically well-maintained, with smooth surfaces and clear markings denoting lanes, intersections, and pedestrian crossings.

To avoid the worst of the traffic, you should opt for alternative routes like Pickard Street (M-20 Business Route) or Isabella Road (M-20 Truck Route) to circumvent the main traffic thoroughfares. Moreover, it's important to note that during the winter months, when snow and ice can be prevalent, driving conditions can become more difficult, requiring drivers to exercise caution and adapt their driving habits accordingly.

I booked a car online as I had an out of town doctor appointment on Monday and they called me the next day and told me that despite the system allowing me to make a reservation they actually had no cars available until Tuesday. You need to fix your system.

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.

How I waisted my time and money to go rent a vehicle at a business that didn't even exist. I was beyond furious. I got a ride there to pick up the vehicle. It was an hour drive to get there. Just to find out the place literally does not exist.

The great part of this is the size of the Saginaw/Midland/Bay City Airport. The car rental counters are on the right side of the small terminal building as you're on your way out, and the cars are just outside the door there. Pick up and drop-off could not have been easier. The man attending the Hertz/Dollar counter was helpful and friendly.

Pros:

Quick return of car. Price.

Cons:

Car cleanliness. Had not been vacuumed or anything. Stains on the seats. Payment was strange and had to wait for the Hertz staff member to get phone approval for the charge from the Hertz rental's bank. It was strange and I was nervous about why it happened for such a small charge.

Pros:

People at the Hertz Counter at MBS airport were fantastic

Cons:

the car had mechanical issues with the tires and traction. the worst thing was the smells in the car, the car had a smoker in it previous to my rental, cigar and weed smoker and the car reeked of those smells. In addition to that the rental location has overdosed the car with liquid air freshener in an attempt to cover up the smoke. It overwhelmed my sinuses and I was unable to exchange the car it was horrible

Cons:

The car was awful, it was the absolute worst car I have ever driven as a rental. I will never buy a Nissan. Poor choice to put in as a rental. Car has trouble handling over 70 mph, uncomfortable and super annoying.

Cons:

The car had just been used by a smoker, and smelled horrible. It was too late to get another rental as I arrived on the last flight of the day, otherwise I would have exchanged it. Unfortunately I had to leave the area, and there was no time to go back to the airport and get an exchange.
