Useful information on Chicago airports

Chicago has two major airports, O'Hare International Airport and Midway International Airport, so rental car companies are plentiful and offer multiple car options at cheap rates. At O'Hare International Airport, you will find plenty of options, and each car rental agency provides free shuttle service to and from the terminal curb fronts.

O'Hare International is served by Advantage, Alamo, Avis, Budget Car Rental, Dollar Rent-A-Car, Enterprise, Hertz, National, and Thrifty. According to the airport website, "Rental car shuttles pick up at the arrival curb front which is the lower level outside of baggage claim. Each terminal has designated areas on the out-most curb front where shuttles board." O'Hare also advises travelers to contact their chosen rental car company about hours of operation.

There are also dozens of car rental locations within the downtown area, near major hotels. Because of its size, Chicago has many parking garage options, as well as street parking. Chicago's streets are based on a numbered grid system, with the "zero" coordinates being at Madison and State streets in the famous "Loop" area of downtown.
