I got the other car, I did not opted for it, the breaks were horrible and it was a risk travelling with 2years old kid. As I was struck in Chicago and wanted to earliest leave to Toronto the guys there did not offer me anything g I demanded and I paid huge amount for what j never asked for.

Enterprise always offers better service. On this rental, the guy offered me a choice of SUVs and (when I explained I was picking up my kid from college) said he could substitute a minivan at the same price. That worked better for me so I ended up in a nice, new hybrid minivan for the long ride.

Very poor. They closed before I arrived (plane delayed etc), I reached out and asked for my money back since I wasn’t able to pick up my car. Rather than issue the refund, they spent three hours saying I should have called (umm I was on the phone with the airline and literally in the air —when was I supposed to have called?). It was the worst customer service I’ve ever seen. I am absolutely appalled. All I needed was my money back (I wasn’t even upset!) and instead the antagonized me for hours and still no refund.

The staff were all great. ORD's new system, where the airport provides shuttles to a new building where all the on-airport rental companies are located, gets rid of the "whose shuttles are best" problem. Our Hyundai Sonata only had about 2400 miles on it, and it was in pretty much perfect condition.Nit-pick: When cleaning the cars, go a little easy on the air "freshener".

It let me book knowing they didn't have any inventory. Seriously Wtf. There were many people that were affected by this. After booking, traveling to the the dollar counter, and then standing in line for 40 minutes the lady in line told us that if we booked today that they didn't have a car for us. What is terrible is that their site always shows inventory - I checked it after that whole experience.

Long Wait for pick up, told at the Register that the car booked was unavailable and to have it must wait for additional hours was a night mare. To save the time we had to upgrade and Pay more , was unexpected and unacceptable. A little courtesy to inform the status of the car ,would have been helpful. To pay the Money I paid , any other comapnay would have brought the car to the Terminal ---- The long wait and asked for addtional wait and availability of an upgraded car ---- all seemed a scam.

The car I requested required a 90 minute wait. Not happening after a six hour red eye flight. The only car they had was an exorbitantly priced SUV that, because I needed it for two extra days, end up costing me close to $700. NEVER. DOING. BUSINESS. WITH. KAYAK. AGAIN.

Super long wait at Chicago Airport pickup. About 1:30. One counter for both Thrifty AND Dollar, with 2-3 clerks. Clerk's instructions about fuel prepaying and toll paying were unclear, and when I asked for her to repeat, she just said "Whatever, just take care of it". Probably just wanted to get over the huge queue and I get that, but still really bad customer service. She asked for me to write down my personal information on a boarding pass-like paper, with address, email and phone, when other companies around have a QR code for you to scan and enter these details in advance. Could be good for time saving in case of big queue ups like this was...

There was a line of 100 people and only two employees working behind the counter at O'HARE location in Chicago ( meanwhile the other car rental companies next to them had 5 or 6 people working behind the counter) .. I waited in line 2 hours and 30 minutes and it was miserable because I already had a reservation at noon because I had to to to a wedding that day like 4 hours away .. A lots of nasty actitud from the people working for "thrifty" .. on top of that they FORCE me to pay an extra 30 dollars a day for my car rental otherwise I'll have to wait for an undisclosed amount of time because according to them they didn't have cars available. But after I paid the extra money the car was available . This was so disrespectful

The worst car rental experience ever!Absolutely nothing!This location is super shady with their pricing. Why do you, as KAYAK and priceline.com, allow this company to post on your website that unlimited miles are included in their pricing without an asterisk or something to let the consumer know there’s an actual restriction for in-state customers before reserving the vehicle? I was already under pressure to get this vehicle for the holiday trip my family and I were having to NYC. I had to find out at the store that was 30 minutes away from me. Lastly, the staff there was super rude, and had their lines ready to justify their shady practices. Not once did they apologize. They just went to the fine print to clear themselves. I mean, how many people read the fine print on their cellphone contacts, new phone policy, or new credit card policy? I bet not many do. That's why you post that restriction on the front, so people can make the right choice right away and not waste time. I’ve had bad experience renting vehicles, but this takes the cake.

When I arrived at the counter they told me they couldn’t do the one way rental I had booked. They even said they didn’t even have an office at the booked drop off location (MSP). After trying 5 other agencies we went back as I had canceled my family’s flights after securing the booking and I had no way to get to my destination. Then they acquiesced and let us have the booking at a higher price. Turns out they do have a full scale office at MSP. If you don’t want to provide the service don’t allow a third party to book it. Unacceptable.

There was a worker at Avis Chicago Midway driving a large red Chevrolet SUV back and forth in the dropoff zone at 35-45 mph. If my child had strayed a couple of feet past the car, they would have been killed. This is terrifying and completely unacceptable! We will never book with Avis again.

Pick up and drop off was ok Mini Van was smelling but we didn’t have time to call them or complained as we r late for our flight.. dropped off all good but to our surprise 2 weeks later we were charged 450 usd for smoking cleaning fee( no email or any notification and we only happened to notice when we were checking credit card statements) - Avis got it SO wrong and we were furious and disappointed and bit agitated .. - how come they charge smoking cleaning when we are NON smokers….it is little arrogance and blalant lies - how come we never got any email about this additional billing..it is little mischievous from Avis to charge and not letting us know.. God knows how many customers were charged like this without their knowledge - on what basis they charged a smoking cleaning fee 2 weeks later when we don’t even go near smoking zone…. Infact we should be compensated more for giving a minivan which has some smoke smell( my wife noticed that as we have kids but We don’t have time and patience to call Avis when we picked the vehicle and thought once u air out it shud go.. - probably we will never go with Avis again and choose others obviously..

We like the staff but picking up the rental takes forever. The process seems to be very slow

Do not call National Avis number. Call local Avis location if there is an issue. National Avis number workers are rude, do not know policies, have wrong information, try to charge extra money.

There were TWO agents, and well over 100 people in line in front of me. When I finally got to the agent (who was great), there were easily 150 people waiting behind me. There was finally a third agent brought out. It was ONE HOUR AND 40 MINUTES from the time I arrived at Avis and got my paperwork. The car was fine.

Seat belt didn’t work, audio for phone/radio was intermittent, they didn’t explain gas policy well.

I repeatedly said, I will bring back the car full of gas. Please take off the charge. And repeatedly they put the charge to fill the gas back up. Pure fraud.

The staff was happy to see and serve me. Good customer service.Even though I called ahead, there were no full-sized trucks on the lot when I arrived. They had to get one from some auxiliary lot and drive it in for me. The truck they grabbed had not been properly cleaned - filthy steering wheels and side windows so dirty that I could not see the side mirrors. National made up for this by giving me a free day of rent (refund), and a deep apology from the management. So I will try them again next time.

Way too much confusion trying to locate a car in the class I had reserved (luxury). 5 different people asked if we needed help (we did) but none delivered. After much delay, we got a car that was just cleaned and we’re on our way. Not a very good showing.

Top tips for renting a car at Chicago O'Hare Intl Airport

  • As one of the world’s busiest airports, a car hire at Chicago O’Hare Intl Airport (ORD) will make a great option to avoid the crowds and busy public transport transit systems, especially if you have a lot of luggage to carry, or you are travelling as a group. It could also work out as a more economical option if you consider the relatively inexpensive fuel prices. At just 17 miles from the centre of Chicago city, you can reach the city in just over 20min directly from Interstate 190, which is conveniently located next to the airport, and you can drive in comfort to your chosen destination.
  • The road system around Chicago is exceptionally good and you can connect to many major highways directly from the airport with your hire car. From the Interstate 190 on leaving the airport, you can merge with the Rosemont motorway interchange in just a couple of miles, heading east where you can then connect to other routes in all directions to reach other parts of Illinois. The Interstate 294 will take you to both north and south regions and if you take the Interstate 55, you can explore southern Illinois and connect on to neighbouring Missouri this way. Interstates are wide and well-maintained, making for a smooth journey and Chicago city’s grid-style roads are easy to navigate.
  • On your return to drop off your car hire at Chicago O’Hare Intl Airport, you can find a unique multi-level refuelling facility for a quick turn-around and 12 electrical charging points if needed. If you are approaching the airport on Interstate 190, take exit 2A, and the Mannheim Road north ramp, which will lead you back onto Zemke Boulevard to access the fuel points and to return your car hire back to the Multi-Modal facility.
  • It may be worth bearing in mind, the busiest times at Chicago O’Hare Airport are usually on a Monday, Thursday, and Friday with most of the traffic between 06:00-08:00 in the morning and again in the afternoon between 15:00-17:00. Try to avoid these hours if possible and take advantage of the late-morning, early-afternoon lull, to ensure a smoother process without the extra congestion.
