If you want to see everything Chicago has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Avis. Stop spending your vacation waiting on the bus, or being nickel and dimed with ride-shares or taxis. When you have access to your own vehicle, you can go anywhere you want to go, when you want. Make your upcoming vacation to Illinois even better with an Avis car rental.
With over two million living in Chicago, you know there is going to be plenty to see and do in this bustling city. Guests come to experience Chicago's diverse culture. Of course, this city has more going on such as a captivating art scene and plenty of interest for history buffs. Whatever you choose to do first, you'll want to check out as much of Chicago as possible while on your trip. Once you grab the keys to your Avis rental car, you'll be on your way to exploring this exciting city.
We work with the best companies in the business. Avis was the first rental car business located in an airport and have over 70 years of providing rental cars to visitors from all over. With an assorted fleet of vehicles and over five-thousand locations internationally, Avis is sure to provide you a great experience from pick-up to drop-off.
We try to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
You'll need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Chicago is 21. Take time to check Avis's policies, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Chicago. For bigger cities, like Chicago, you may find exploring and parking easier in a compact automobile. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Chicago vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Avis. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Be sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Chicago. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Avis does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Avis rental with full tank, and you should return it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Avis.
Chicago is a large city, so there is going to be a lot to do. You may not want to worry about your mileage limits if you are planning to see what else Illinois has to offer.
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at a different Avis. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
