Beware! If, during your car rental period, you need to call Hertz to extend your rental by one day, the Hertz agent will quote a crazy higher price, 2 or 3 times as much as your original daily rate. Plus a ‘change fee’ may be tacked on, without warning. Be sure to reserve enough days in the original reservation. Even if you make it one day longer than you think you’ll need. The Hertz people at the city pickup location were very good and efficient - but those on the phone line are thieves and liars.

Waited for them to find my car. Then the tags expired. Then the car Driver seat would not go back and it was empty on gas. Ridiculous

This was my first time renting a car from this location. I found it easily, and the person at the desk was friendly and very clear on her directions and procedures. I found the car, was able to adjust the seats and mirrors, get myself organized, and pull out. The only bad thing was that I didn't know how to deal with the scanning process to get the gate to open. I had to wait there for someone to come and help. Coming home was easier because I knew where to scan the paper. However, getting into the entrance lane on Washington St. was difficult because of the amount of people walking by in front of me. But it all worked out well.

The sales person did not explain well how the gas program worked (fill up by hertz). I end up paying for a full tank but did not use more than half the tank! Also, when I pick up the car the representative left the car opened and took off to see another client. Zero customer service, very poorly handled. I will not use hertz again.

You have to check in at the counter of the hotel then go down to the valet to pick the car up so you get no chance to look at it before having to drive away. Wait at the valet was 20 minutes. They also charge a 200 dollar hold on top of what you paid for the rental. When you drop the car off you are just handing the keys off to the valet which is convenient but I still have no idea if Hertz even got the car back since I got no emailed confirmation

What are the major attractions in Chicago?

If your trip to Chicago is all locked in but your travel itinerary is looking a little empty, we can give you a few hints and tips.

You might need to ask your boss for a couple more days off, because Chicago is full of iconic attractions. Get started at Art Institute of Chicago and Millennium Park. You won't want to miss Skydeck Ledge and Willis Tower either.

Take in the best that this city has to offer by adding Chicago Cultural Center and Ford Center for the Performing Arts Oriental Theatre to your travel schedule. If you've got some spare time, swing by Buckingham Fountain and Merchandise Mart as well.

Not far from the heart of the city, The PrivateBank Theatre is one sight to consider putting on your to-do list. If you still have space on your travel schedule, Sullivan Center and Four Seasons will keep you occupied, too.

What are the best road trip destinations near Chicago?

We know you're curious about what else is around you. Venture outside of Chicago and you'll stumble on a few big-name attractions. About 37 miles away in Gurnee, Six Flags Great America attracts the crowds year-round. Why not plan a visit and see what all the fuss is about?

Where are the best beaches near Chicago?

Fill the gas tank, buckle up and get ready to feel the salty sea air whipping through your hair. Chicago has some fantastic stretches of coastline, such as:

  • North Avenue Beach (2 miles away).
  • Montrose Beach (6 miles away).
  • Kathy Osterman Beach (7 miles away).

Where are the best convention centers near Chicago?

After spending loads of time networking with like-minded individuals, it's always good to be able to lay your head somewhere nearby. If you're visiting Chicago on business, here are some of the top convention centers that are close to hotels, cafés and restaurants:

  • Richard J. Daley Center (0.2 miles away).
  • Symphony Center (0.2 miles away).
  • McCormick Place (2 miles away).

How can I get a cheap car rental in Chicago?

Here are our suggestions on how to jump behind the wheel of a rental car with extra cash in your wallet:

  • A car can take you anywhere you want to go — so can the web. Compare the best deals from all the top rental companies in a couple of clicks;
  • Keep an eye on your inbox for our terrific Price Drop Alert. We'll keep you in the know about all the hot deals cruising around your location;
  • Peruse the bargains at all rental locations around town, being sure to include both the airport and its surrounds. A brief cab drive to a nearby car rental outlet might reward you with significant savings;
  • If you don't mind which day of the week you get the keys to your car and your travel plans are flexible, experiment with days and dates to find the best prices;
  • See if you can keep your pickup and drop-off times the same. If you bring back your car later than you picked it up, you could be charged an entire extra day;
  • Sometimes companies reward you for prepaying — keep a lookout for these kinds of deals;
  • Don't let the deal you've been searching for slip through your fingers. Book as soon as you can and secure your ideal set of wheels.

What kind of rental car should I get for Chicago?

On your way to Chicago to marvel at John Hancock Center and Skydeck Ledge? That's what we'd call a road trip of a lifetime! But you'll want to think about exactly how you'll get about. Driving in this sprawling metropolis can be nerve-wracking, so it makes sense to opt for a smaller vehicle, like an economy car. You'll be zipping past traffic and parallel parking like a pro. If you'd prefer to leave the driving for outside the city center, that's OK with us too. Lock in something more comfortable and a little bigger, like a standard car, and discover the prairies of Cook County.

Should I get a luxury rental car in Chicago?

You'll be glad to know that there's a huge range of both luxury and economy vehicles to rent in Chicago. What you end up opting for will depend on what you're willing to spend and what you plan to do. Specialty and prestige vehicles offer the best in comfort and class. If you feel like splashing out, why not pick a fully kitted-out SUV, or perhaps a slick mid-sized vehicle? On the other hand, if you just need a set of wheels to get you from A to B as efficiently as possible, go for an economy vehicle (or something else that's unlikely to break the bank).
