Car Rental Detroit Wayne County Airport

Car Rental Detroit Wayne County Airport

Detroit Metropolitan Airport has a separate rental car campus located along Lucas Drive. At both McNamara and North terminals, shuttle buses pick-up and drop-off customers from our rental car facilities.


At each terminal, you can find our shuttles at the Ground Transportation Center. After claiming any checked luggage and proceeding through any U.S. Customs and Border Protection entry procedures (if you are arriving on an international flight), you can follow the signs in either terminal directing you to Ground Transportation.


If you need assistance transporting your luggage to the Ground Transportation Center, there are baggage carts available for rent throughout the airport in both terminals, as well as SkyCap luggage assistance offered by each airline.


There are no rental car desks in the terminals themselves, but located in each Ground Transportation Center and baggage claim area are courtesy phones which you may use to contact us. Shortly after you call, a shuttle bus will take you from the Ground Transportation Center directly to the rental counter.


When you return your rental car, make sure to factor in the time it will take for you to arrive back at the airport by courtesy shuttle bus when calculating how early you must arrive for a flight departing from DTW.
