Who We Are

American Rent-A-Car is a Michigan-based company infused with the automotive spirit of Detroit. Much like the automotive giants that shaped Metro Detroit, we are passionate about our vehicles and our customers. WE ONLY RENT AMERICAN CARS.

Our primary goal is to provide customers with a rental vehicle that suits their needs at a rate they can afford, and we’ve been achieving that goal for over fifteen years. That’s fifteen years we’ve been providing our signature, executive-level customer service.

Some of our customers are renting cars as a result of a stressful situation such as an accident, and we provide a rental experience that helps alleviate some of that stress. We offer a rental car delivery service where we deliver the customers rental to their home, repair facility, place of business, or hotel. We’re always trying to brighten our customers’ day!

With many locations in the Metro Detroit are and expansion into Florida, Indiana, and Iowa we can ensure that our fleet of vehicles is always close when you need us. Whether you need a vehicle for a family trip, flying in for business, need to show up to a special event in style, or simply want to step outside your comfort zone in a new set of wheels, our top-of-the-line fleet has something for every situation.

American Rent A Car seeks military veterans for employment with high priority. We offer incentives for active-duty military, and veterans. We are working on partnerships with many military travel sites for marketing and booking reservations.
