Find Cheap Chicago Rental Car Deals

If you’re looking for towering skyscrapers, world class museums, and diehard sports fans who like their hot dogs just so, the Windy City is your destination. Because many of Chicago’s sites and scenes are spread out over the city and neighboring communities, getting a rental car is a great way to go. Whether you pick up your rental car at the airport or from one of the many car rental companies in town, you will find some useful information below to help you get the right rental car for the right price.

Location, location, location

If you're arriving in Chicago by plane, you may wish to pick up your rental car from one of the many car rental companies at the airports. Those flying into O’Hare International Airport (ORD) will find Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, National, and Thrifty a short shuttle ride away. Midway International travelers have the following car rental companies, all with cars in the terminal, to choose from: Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, National, and Thrifty. We can also show you a map of the nearest car rental locations to your hotel and the rental cars they carry. (And keep in mind that off-airport car rentals are often cheaper than at the airport, even from the same car rental company.)

Picking the rental car that's right for you

Expedia offers a choice of standard rental cars, luxury autos, vans and SUVs to meet nearly every need. If you need any special equipment, like a child seat, let us know and we will forward your request on to the rental car company. And what's more, when you choose to "hire a car" (as the British say) from one of our car rental partners* in Chicago, you'll be dealing with a rental car company that has made a special commitment to provide Expedia customers with great customer service, a wide choice of top quality cars, and competitive total pricing.

Expedia's Total Pricing

Unlike some other online travel sites that show you a cheap discount rate for your car rental when you're shopping and then heap on taxes and fees when it comes time to pay, Expedia shows you the final price up front. What you see is what you pay.
