Flying into Windsor, need to get to Detroit

We are going to Europe on Air Canada. It was substantially cheaper to do 2 one way flights, Detroit to Paris outbound and Paris to Windsor for the return trip. I can get someone to take us to the airport in Detroit but I don't really want to ask anyone to deal with crossing the border to pick us up if I can avoid it.

So what are my options? Taxi, limo service, bus? I work in downtown Detroit and could leave my car in my work garage while we are gone, so I only need to get that far.

Pat, I don't really have an answer, but just wanted to say I'm amazed that this worked out cheaper for you. Just shows we have to check all options.
How about if you took your car yourself to the Windsor airport before you leave for Europe. Not sure of the charges, but since it's a smaller airport it might not be bad. Then it would be there waiting for you.

Good luck, and have a great trip.

Actually I was amazed too. I found the fare on sidestep.com. For some reason the 2 one ways trips avoided the hefty fuel surcharge.

We might just leave drop the car off at the airport as you suggest. Thanks.

Pat,
I mentioned your post to Windsor friends...
And they think you are full of it.
What specific days are you flying?
I checked all kinds of days and times and I could not find anything "substantially cheaper" Detroit - Paris - Windsor .
In fact it was always substantially more expensive.

Pat - you are a BS'er.
