Location information for Chicago

With a population of close to three million, Chicago is the third largest metropolis in the US. Every year millions of people from all over the world visit the Windy City, known for its abundant shopping, history of music, and lakefront attractions. Car hire in Chicago Downtown gives you the freedom to explore the city at your convenience.

Resting on the coast of Lake Michigan, the lakefront provides many sights for visitors to Chicago. Navy Pier is a great place to do some shopping, go on a few rides, and eat a good Chicago hot dog on the boardwalk. With budget car rental in Chicago Downtown, you can also cruise south on Lakeshore Drive to visit Grant Park and relax by the fountain.

Chicago, also known as Second City, has abundant music and live entertainment, and with car rental in Chicago Downtown, all the venues are available. A performance by the Chicago Symphony, a blues show downtown at a small club, or a top act at a large venue such as Alpine Valley are all among the multitude of choices.

If you want to see any of Chicago's famous sports teams, car rental in Chicago Downtown is the best way to get to all the arenas. The Bulls play at the United Center, and before you watch the game you can check out the bronze statue of the legendary Michael Jordan in front of the stadium. For baseball, the Cubs play on the north side at Wrigley Field, and the White Sox play on the south side at US Cellular.

An international city, Chicago is home to a wide range of international foods. If you want some good Japanese, a drive up Clark Street takes you to some great sushi restaurants.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Car-Rentals.com the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
