Car rentals in Riverdale, Chicago: What you need to know

Chicago, Illinois, is full of interesting neighborhoods like Riverdale. It's in these areas where you can get a true sense for a city like Chicago. But once you are done exploring all the terrific shops and restaurants in Riverdale, you'll need some wheels to see everything that Chicago provides.

Taking the public transportation is an inexpensive way to get around Riverdale and the surrounding neighborhoods, but then you have to make sure you have precise change and stick with a tight schedule. Rideshares and taxis are more convenient, but little trips here and there can add up. Plus, they may not be readily available when you need them. A Riverdale rental car is the simplest method, so you can experience the entirety of the neighborhood and the rest of Chicago on your vacation. See below to learn all that you want to know about car rentals in Riverdale.

Frequently asked questions

How can I get an affordable car rental in Riverdale?

If you are looking for some of the best car rental rates, then you've come to the right place. To get the most savings when you travel to Riverdale you can do a few things:

  • Compare the rates for a few suppliers on the type of car you want
  • Book as far in advance as possible. You will usually get your preferred car of your choice and save more
  • Check the fuel and mileage policies. You don't want to be surprised with added costs
  • Don't rent more car than you'll need. Typically, the smaller the car, the cheaper the rate

Be sure to go through the rental policy before you reserve your vehicle.

What kind of vehicle should I rent while in Riverdale?

With a variety of vehicle types to decide from, it can be difficult to figure out which vehicle is ideal for your getaway. Nonetheless, keep in mind the amount of driving and how many you are riding with. Look at the table below to help you book what vehicle is the best one for you.

Car TypeBest forCategory includes
LuxuryWhen you really want to go all out on your vacation to RiverdaleAudi A4, Cadillac XTS, or similar
Minivan or SUVFamily trips where you need the extra roomChrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan, or similar
Economy or Compact CarEasy to park and have great gas mileageToyota Yaris, Nissan Versa, or similar

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Riverdale?

The youngest age to rent a car in most cities like Chicago is 21. Take time to read through the supplier's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular. Make sure to check the rental company's policy to find out if there is an additional cost for you.

Do I need insurance when I rent my Riverdale car rental?

Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase interim coverage through the rental car company. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check the supplier's policy before you decide.

Am I required to fill my tank before I bring the rental car back?

At CarRentals.com, we recommend a "full-to-full" policy. You pick up your rental with full tank of gas, and you should return it with a full tank. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Do most providers offer one-way rentals in Riverdale?

Most rental car providers offer one-way rentals. Depending on your itinerary, you may find it simpler to drop off your car at a different location. Please note that there is generally an extra fee for one-way car rentals. Be sure to know the provider's policy to know the total cost.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Riverdale?

The majority of suppliers provide unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it's part of your package that you are purchasing. It's important to consider how much driving you will be doing on your trip to Riverdale. You don't want to be hit with any surprise overages if you don't have unlimited miles, so make sure to go through the supplier's policy. You may need to have unlimited miles if you are imagining some road trips to find out what else Chicago or even Illinois has to offer.

Are there any road trips I should take from Riverdale?

Once you've checked out Riverdale, you'll be happy that you have your own set of wheels available. There are some worthwhile stops around Chicago that are just a drive away. You'll be excited you have your car rental because there are a few historical sites and museums to check out around Riverdale. Looking for something to fill an afternoon? Then hop in your car and cruise to:

  • Interact with a bit of local history with a visit to the Columbus Park
  • Art Institute of Chicago can give you an intriguing look into some Illinois history
  • Frank R. Lillie House is an Illinois landmark that could make a good starting point for a day trip
  • Take in even more Illinois culture at the A. Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum

of course, there is a lot more to do in and around Riverdale. Get in your rental car and discover what's out there.
