KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Waterford

  • Securing car rentals in Waterford, Michigan is a wonderful idea because it can get you throughout the township and into Detroit on your own schedule and more quickly than the often-unavailable public transportation. In Waterford car rentals, you can visit one of the many parks in the area, including Hess-Hathaway Park, Dodge #4 State Park, and Marshbank Park. Just outside the town limits, you can visit the Pontiac Lake Recreation Area, Indian Springs Metro Park, and Blue Mountain State Recreation Area. Those driving car rentals in Waterford can visit Ann Arbor to the southwest, Lake Huron to the northeast, or Lake Michigan to the northwest.
  • Situated about a 50-minute drive south of Waterford, the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) serves as an ideal location for securing Waterford car rentals. At DTW, once you exit baggage claim, follow the signs to Ground Transportation in either terminal, where you can catch a free shuttle to the Rental Car Campus, located in the northeast corner of the airport. When you return your rental car to where you picked it up, you can catch a free shuttle to your airport terminal.
  • Waterford Township is in the northeast corner of the Detroit metropolitan area. It has a small-town feel, yet it has access to the big city. Traffic in Waterford itself tends to be calm and quiet. There's no particular downtown area or retail center where traffic can become congested. If you are driving into or toward Detroit during peak rush hours of 7 am to 9 am and then from 4 pm to 6 pm, you will experience traffic congestion.

I liked nothing. One thing could've been better though...How about having a car available when a customer shows up with a reservation and a confirmation number. Yeah..that part could've been better for sure.

Pros:

It go the 5 of us from Michigan to Tennessee and back fairly easy

Cons:

I was told I would be renting a Ford Transit got a Chevy Express, which had less leg room for the driver. Being 6' tall with bad knees, it was a tough ride without enough room to stretch my legs out. There was food, wrappers and plastic silverware under the very rear seat. I vacuumed it out before I returned it and it was cleaner than when I picked it up

Location is not kept well, the “kids” and I do mean “kids” may or may not have any idea their being exploited by their boses/owners. Pice was cheep and so was the quality of this specific location. First and last time I’d ever rent from here. Cars are not clean and neither is the location.

The vehicle that I rented had a bad tire that vibrated at speeds over 60mph which made for a very unpleasant drive. The staff at the local office was very unfriendly and not helpful at all.
