Renting a car at Chicago Airport
In partnership with Chicago's finest rental providers, DriveNow publishes the lowest rates and latest deals on Car Hire at Chicago Airport, making it simple to find, compare and book the perfect rental car for your trip to the Windy City.
Often referred to simply as O’ Hare – any Chicago native will know exactly where you are talking about – the city’s international airport is as striking as it is world-class. Judged purely on take-offs and landings alone, O’ Hare International Airport still ranks as the world’s busiest. Indeed, up until 1998, Chicago Airport’s runways welcomed more passengers than any other on the planet, until Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson finally overtook it.
There’s just a 30 minute drive on the I-90 E between O’ Hare Airport and downtown itself, so hiring a car at Chicago Airport is easily the most convenient way of making your way through Chicago’s historic streets and exploring Illinois and the Great Lakes region.
Once you’ve made your way through arrivals, take the free shuttle bus which regularly arrives at the lower level of the baggage claim area – this will take you to the rental car area. You can book your vehicle beforehand with DriveNow, meaning that you won’t have the hassle of sorting something out when you arrive.
