Airport Car Rental
Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) is a major airport serving the greater Detroit Metropolitan Area and the rest of southeastern Michigan.
Detroit, long an overlooked travel destination, is now more popular than ever with tourists. Many of its historic buildings have been renovated and its downtown has rebounded in recent years. History buffs shouldn’t miss visiting the city both for it being the birthplace of the automobile and the fact that it was home to Motown music. New hotels and restaurants are constantly opening and Detroit is a welcoming and exciting destination.
A rental car is the best way to get about the urban area. There are also many other places to go outside of downtown including venturing over the border to Canada. A rental car is essential for getting outside the city, as is the case in most of the United States.
Top international routes
The airport’s other main airlines are American and Untied along with the low-cost airlines Southwest, Spirit, JetBlue, and Frontier. Of these, Spirit serves the most passengers as the airport is a major focus city for the airline.
International Airlines serving the airport include Air France, Air Canada Express, Luthsfansa, Aeromexico Connect, and Royal Jordanian.

Services and facilities
A Westin Hotel can be found in the McNamara Terminal. If you want a more affordable place to spend the night before an early flight, a cluster of hotels can also be found just on the other side of I-94 from the airport. Most offer free parking and many also offer a free airport shuttle if you need to drop off your rental the night before your flight.
Finally, you won’t go hungry at Detroit Metro. Plenty of dining options are available in each terminal. You can find fast food, sit down restaurants, bars, and coffee shops.
Nearest gas station
A better option is a Speedway on Merriman Road north of I-94. Filling up at this station requires a circle, but the prices and service are more than worth it. When looking at a map, it may seem confusing to figure out how to reach the rental car returns when entering the airport this way, but signs along the way make it incredibly easy.
