KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Windsor

  • Car rental in Windsor affords you the unique opportunity of discovering everything this city in Ontario offers. You'll be a 10 minute drive from the U.S. city of Detroit and down the road from various attractions worth visiting. Take a step back in time by driving through to Willistead Manor. or check out the Francois Baby House before taking a turn past Windsor Sculpture Park and exploring the different artwork. Do all of this without paying exorbitant taxi fees or trying to figure out the local public transport schedule.
  • Organise your car rental in Windsor at Windsor International Airport for the ideal experience and to avoid using airport transportation. A few international companies, including Avis, Budget and National Car Rental have rental desks across from the domestic Baggage Claim area and a pick-up area situated less than 5 minutes from the terminal exit. Booking your rental car online is the best way to avoid availability issues and will save you time and money on arrival.
  • Driving your rental car in Windsor is generally easy. The roads are well-maintained and wide enough to accommodate any vehicle type, plus traffic is well-regulated by traffic lights. If you're used to driving on the left-hand side of the road, keep in mind that you'll drive on the opposite side in Windsor. Be aware of one-way streets in the city centre and pay attention to the street signs so you don't go the wrong way down a road.
  • If you're in the city during the summer, there aren't many difficulties driving in Windsor, except during peak hour traffic for the morning and early evening commutes. Winter can be treacherous though and you'll need to pay attention. The roads are often very slippery and traffic will move slower. Remember to accelerate and decelerate slowly and increase your stopping distance while driving. Also, avoid warming up your car in an enclosed area when you first get into it.
  • Book your car hire in Windsor at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate car hire in Windsor are around 55% cheaper than other car types, on average

Nothing

Cons:

I found out that the reservation was not st DTW, but rather at a smaller regional airport and, though on the phone the representative was very kind and transferred the reservation for no charge, at DTW the representative would not honor that and insisted on doubling the rate. So I left and rented from Thrifty.

Cons:

It took me at least an hour to get my car. There were 3 agents working. Since I was doing a turn around flight this utilized far too much of my needed time. This was the LONGEST I've ever had to wait and get a car and the issue wasn't stock. There were plenty of cars on hand.

Pros:

Nothing!

Cons:

I booked a car through Kayak to be available to me when I landed at the Detroit Airport. The car I reserved, for some reason, is not at the Detroit Airport. It's in Windsor Ontario. And the great price I received was in Canadian dollars so it wasn't so great after all. And when I attempted to contact customers service, there is none to be found. Nice job Kayak!

Pros:

It had wheels

Cons:

The car was dirty and rattled with every little bump in the road. But the most annoying issues was that the car charger didn't work therefore my gps died and I was lost 20 miles from my destination. I called alamo and they said no problem, just go to the nearest alamo to swap cars. Well... the nearest alamo was 50 miles away. Impossible to do, i was in the area on business. Ended up having to spend $150 for a new gps that would plug into the USP port. Very dissatisfied all around. Never again.....

I had reserved a vehicle through them. Three days before the reservation date I was emailed that to vehicle was over booked. I the email it said that they would like to offer me alternatives, but I was given zero and got the run around, oh and of course they were closed over the weekend when I got the email and I had to wait until a day before my trip to sort it out. No one helped at all, given zero alternatives, and just told to call priceline/discount company. I will never use them. Had to pay $500 more for a car since it was so close to when I needed it.

Jun 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was great, helpful

Cons:

I was surprised to find no rental counter at Windsor station, just a video kiosk marked Discount (not even Eurocar). After calling, it took 20 minutes for an agent to arrive to pick us up and drive us another 20 minutes to the rental counter, where we took another 20 minutes to finally get the car and be on our way. That was nowhere advertised or stated, so it came as a surprise. As a minimum, I would suggest their confirmation email ask us to call 15 minutes before arriving so the shuttle can be there. Or they could monitor the train arrival times and just be there when our train arrives. Then you need to drop the car to the rental office over an hour before the train. Something to keep in mind.

The fact that I booked my van rental two months in advance to make sure I had one for my trip and the day I was going to pick it up there was nothing available make me so mad. I was super lucky to have found a van with enterprise at the last minute! After that I will always rent from them. They have the best service!
