If you're just going to be in the city near downtown, a car is going to be an expensive hassle. You'll need a car in the outer parts of the city or the suburbs.

Chicago is a top destination with plenty to offer visitors. Allow plenty of time if you’re driving at peak times or in inclement weather as traffic can significantly impact arrival times. Pay tolls in cash if possible, as paying these on phone or via website after was a bit of a hassle and took some time.

If you don't have anything scheduled, or if you are very early when you arrive to the separate location (must be shuttled to off site location from O'Hare rental center), the value is unbeatable. If you are a "last minute" type of person, you will definitely be late by choosing this rental company.

Only rent a car if you’re leaving the city. Inside the city it’s a pain to have a car and public transit/ride shares are better and cheaper.
