FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be 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 a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
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 a delay. As a 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 is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

About Illinois

Illinois is the sixth most populous city and 25th most extensive in the United States. The state is a major

transportation hub for the Midwest and it is served by Chicago O’Hare international airport and Illinois

high speed rail such as the Lincoln service and Michigan line. The state also stands high in oil production,

agriculture, coal mining and manufacturing.

Much of the land in Illinois is flat but features plains in the southern, northern and western sections.

With the states geographical position as well as the long north-south axis, Illinois experiences regional

variations in temperature with hot summers (of temperatures up to 74 °F) and cold winters (of

temperatures up to 22 °F).

Exploring Illinois with Your Rental Car

Taking a rental car Illinois is the best way to catch some of the stunning sites as a family or group of

friend. Take a trip down southern Illinois to the Cahokia Mounds and explore the remnants of the

ancient Native American civilization. The Shawnee National Forest is also a great place to visit thanks to

the surroundings of tree-topped plains and geological formations. Other attraction such as the Garden

of the Gods and Burden Falls offers sublime views of a true American treasure.

Located less than two hours south of Chicago is the starved rock state park. This is a pre-historic site that dates back to 8,000 BC, and is home to 13 miles of hiking trail as well as abundance of wildlife. There are also plenty of exciting things to do. For instance, you can pitch a tent on the campgrounds for a restful gataway, catch a view of the waterfalls and hike through the trail.

Make a stop at Springfield and check out the complete and authentic Abraham Lincoln sites that will

take you back in the legends Footsteps. Explore the breath taking adventures of Route 66 as well as the

magnificence of the Frank Lloyd-Wright Dana-Thomas House. Your trip won’t be complete without a

stopping at Galena. This is a historic modern Illinois district located near Iowa state line and Mississippi

River. Hot air ballooning and horseback riding are just a few way for you to get entertained.

Road Trip Illinois

Take a road trip with Rental Car Illinois and explore the beauty that lies in the state. Cruise along the

National Road extending 164 miles from Marshall to East St.Louis. This road goes down in history as the

first road to be built by federal funds setting the pace by which the country’s highway system is mapped

out. Take guided tours off the state house and halls that were once occupied by Abraham Lincoln.

Your journey should not end without a cruise along the Great River Road that is parallel to the mighty

Mississippi river, starting in Galena. Before setting your journey down south take time to shop along

Galena’s main street and admire the 19 th century building along the road. Along the Mississippi, you will get to see the Lewis and Clark State Historic Site which was the first historic site on the Lewis and Clark heritage trail.
