FAQ Overview
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for your rental car is mainly made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by the main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. Please note that the main driver must present a valid credit card issued in their name. Furthermore, the main and additional drivers must be in possession of a valid driving license for at least 1 year (for further information, please refer to the rental conditions). Moreover, both, the main and additional drivers are required to present a valid identity card/passport and must be of the minimum age specified in the rental conditions.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of delay. As a general rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver must present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driver's license and their valid credit card.

Chicago Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Chicago

Car Rental in Chicago Airport

Chicago is a steely city with impressive art museums and revolutionary architecture. As the gateway to Michigan, the Windy City is the perfect base to explore both the Great Lakes and surrounding nature trails with a cheap rental car from Chicago Airport ORD that will get you around conveniently. Some 15 miles north-west of Chicago's downtown, it takes roughly 25 minutes to travel with rental cars from Chicago Airport ORD to the city proper. It is one of two airports in Chicago, but the Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) is a little further out than its partner. Once you drove into the metropolis, you can choose between the main sights or more niche museums as you navigate the city's impressive streetscape.

Main attractions in Chicago

Chicago is renowned in the world for its architecture. A tour of the city by foot is the perfect introduction, with the Chicago Architecture Foundation offering great orientation for the city's Art Deco gems and landmarks. You also need to visit the Willis Tower at some point, zipping up the elevator for thrilling city views. Sports fans should visit Wrigley Field with their rental car from Chicago Airport, as this historic baseball park is home to the Cubs and offers both tours and lively games.

Chicago's museums and galleries are unrivalled. The Art Institute of Chicago is the second largest in the country and houses many outstanding impressionist paintings. The Museum of Contemporary Art on the Gold Coast also houses a strong collection of minimalist and conceptual artworks. The Museum of Science & Industry to the south can be accessed easily when you choose to rent a car from Chicago Airport and is a great spot to geek out with mock storm exhibits and futuristic tech. The Field Museum of Natural History offers a look at some dinosaur bones and ancient Egyptian mummies, while Millennium Park houses some of the city's standout art and sculptures.

Tip

Trips to Lake Michigan and nearby beaches like North Avenue Beach or Montrose Beach are perfect for warm sunny days. Lake Michigan is great for sailing and fishing year-round, but you may find paddle boats more challenging on windy days – so opt for reserves like Skokie Lagoons.

What to eat in Chicago

Chicago offers a healthy blend of traditional Michigan fare and more cutting-edge, modern restaurants. Alinea, Blackbird and BOKA (among others) are all stand-out Michelin-starred restaurants where you can taste gourmet treats. Walkabouts in foodie neighborhoods like Wicker Park, Gold Coast, Chinatown, and the West Loop are a must-do for visitors to Chicago. You should also try the "love-it-or-hate-it" Chicago-style deep-dish pizza while you’re in town. The most famous pizza joints are Burt's Place, Bartoli's and Pequod's. For food trucks, head to Loop and the Near North.

Children’s activities in Chicago 

Chicago offers a number of magical attractions for kids. Aside from the many fantastic museums and galleries, Chicago's green spaces — like Millennium Park and Maggie Daley Park — are great for little ones to let off some steam. Lincoln Park can be reached with acheap car rental from Chicago Airport and features a number of attractions, including a small zoo, which is free to enter. Children also love the nearby Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum for its butterflies and frogs. The Chicago Children's Museum is located on the historic Navy Pier.
