On arrival - collecting your hire car in Chicagot

When you arrive in the USA, collecting your hire car couldn't be easier. If you've opted to pick it up at O'Hare Airport (ORD), then head to the car hire provider's desk in the Arrivals hall. If you're collecting your rental car from another pick up point, then head to the address on your booking confirmation. On arrival, a member of the team will go over the details of the car rental agreement with you. There will be some paperwork to complete ahead of the keys being handed over for the vehicle. They will also take a moment to remind you of the fuel policy for the car, as well as whether there is any mileage limit on the hire agreement.

Please ensure you have the following with you when you pick up your hire car:

  • Printed email confirmation for each of your journeys
  • A full driving licence
  • Credit card in the lead driver's name, with the full deposit amount available
  • A valid DVLA code
  • A valid passport

On your return

When your holiday comes to an end and it's time to bid farewell to the USA, full details of where to return your hire car to in Chicago will be listed on your booking confirmation. When you take your rental car back, the rental company will give it a quick inspection before you head off.

Seeing the sights of Chicago

With a rich history and a world-famous theatre district, Illinois' largest city is bursting with attractions to explore. Chicago is a hub of activity, home to plenty of art galleries and museums, including the Art Institute of Chicago. Tourists can marvel at the Windy City's astonishing architecture and grab a bite to eat from one of the waterfront restaurants.

You can't visit Chicago without seeing Millennium Park, Willis Tower and Navy Pier. The latter lies on the shoreline of Lake Michigan, and due to its abundance of shops, parks, restaurants and attractions, it is one of the top tourist destinations in the Midwest.
