No line to wait (a rarity in renting a car). Alamo bus drivers, agents at check in and check out were friendly and the experience was hassle-free. Car was exactly what we needed for the weekend.Reviewed 25 Jun 2024

I pre ordered a car via a website I use for work. I work for Delta Air Lines and am supposed to get a discount. When I clicked that I wanted to return it to a different location, it wouldn’t let me pick a different location. The girl at the front desk said she was not able to switch it herself, that I had to modify it myself. I could not and decided to cancel it. I found on that it let me do the option of dropping the car off at a different location, so I booked it. I got charged $20 more than what I had originally wanted to book. That was disappointing. Alamo will not be my first choice from here on out.Reviewed 4 Dec 2023

Pros:Staff was helpful and friendly!Cons:The minivan I rented was not clean, there was crackers and crumbs in the rear seats and under the middle seats, it looks like they wiped down the front two seats but you rent a minivan because you need to seat a lot of people and we had to clean it up before anyone would sit in the rear seats. I was highly disappointed.Reviewed 31 May 2021

Top tips for hiring a car from Alamo in Detroit

  • When you plan to book Alamo car rentals in Detroit, you should carefully select the right type of car for your trip.  If you need more space for passengers and luggage, mid-size and full-size cars are a practical choice.
