Van Rental

Budget offers both passenger van rentals and minivan rentals at Detroit Metro. Use passenger vans to transport large groups of 12 or 15 people (perfect for business conventions!), and minivans for keeping your family together. Take a Honda Odyssey or Ford Transit to explore Campus Martius Park or the Detroit Zoo.

SUV Rental

DTW car rental with Budget means you have your pick of high-quality SUVs and Wagons. Seating anywhere from 5-8 people, you can explore the Lake St. Clair shoreline or use your SUV to get kayaks and paddleboards down to the river.

Long-Term Car Rental

Monthly car rental with Budget is more affordable than a short-term lease, making it an ideal temporary vehicle option in Detroit. Long-term car rental means you can go where you want when you need to, from work to the Henry Ford Museum to the Fox Theater.

Luxury Car Rental

A sports car, luxury SUV, or muscle car is just what you need to live the high life in Detroit. Roll up to Bleu Detroit in a Ford Mustang Convertible or get a little extra sun as you explore the harbor with the top down.
