Contained almost entirely within the Great Lakes Basin, the Midwestern state of Michigan offers stunning seascapes and lots of tourist appeal. Split into two peninsulas across Lake Michigan, visitors on a business trip are normally found visiting the Lower Peninsula which includes the largest city of Detroit, while those in search of pleasant panoramas will often venture onto The U.P. Either way, we highly recommend that you take up car hire in Michigan - home of three of the world's biggest car companies - to make your way around easily and more comfortably than relying on public transport.
The Great Lake State possesses many scenes of astounding natural beauty. The Shiawassee National Wildlife Refuge is where four rivers converge, providing a home for many species of migrating waterfowl including Canada geese and the gorgeous coloured prothonotary warbler whose song can be heard for miles around. Hiring a car in Michigan can get you to this lovely location about 25 miles from Saginaw Bay. Meanwhile, Detroit is becoming something of a lovely location itself as the car industry is once again booming. A typical American city boasting many entertainment and cultural diversions, it's also one of only twelve US cities that hosts a team from all four major league sports.
There are nine crossings between the state of MI and the Canadian border, including the main Interstate 75 which runs almost 400 miles through the centre of Michigan across both peninsulas. As in many American states, care must be taken when a school bus on the road begins to flash its red lights; this means that it is stopped and is taking on or letting off school children, some of whom may be crossing the road. You must stop your car at least 20 feet away and wait for the bus to pull away in the interest of the children's safety.
With a wide range of travellers passing through our locations every day, we've got a wide range of vehicles on offer to suit your needs - from smart executive saloons to compact family hatchbacks. ***

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
