KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in McHenry

  • Car rentals in McHenry offer numerous advantages over public transportation. With a rental car, you can plan your trips according to your own preferences and explore the region at your own pace. McHenry features attractions such as Chain O'Lakes State Park, Prairie Trail, and Moraine Hills State Park. Moreover, car rentals in McHenry allow access to remote or underserved areas, thereby expanding the variety of exploration opportunities that may be inaccessible via public transportation. Furthermore, a rental car provides enhanced comfort and discretion, as you can enjoy a personalized and comfortable environment with the ability to control the temperature, music, and overall ambiance of the vehicle.
  • There are five major airports serving the McHenry metropolitan area, including O'Hare International Airport (ORD), Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE), Midway International Airport (MDW), Dane County Regional Airport (MSN), and Chicago Rockford International Airport (RFD). You can arrive at any of these airports for your trip to McHenry. Upon arrival at all terminals at ORD, take the Airport Transit System (ATS) to the rental counters, situated within the Multi-Modal Facility (MMF)/Rental Car facility. MKE features the rental desks on the first floor of the main airport parking garage, directly across from the baggage claim area. At MDW, you can take the shuttle bus outside of baggage claim to the Rental Car Facility, where rental counters are situated on the 1st floor. RFD features several car rentals in McHenry with counters near baggage claim in the main terminal. MSN has car rental desks situated near baggage claim.
  • Driving in McHenry features a combination of easy navigation and adherence to traffic regulations. Drivers are able to travel quickly and safely on the town's well-maintained roads, which are characterized by clearly marked lanes and readable signage. Drivers' adherence to the region's stringent traffic regulations, including speed limits, traffic signals, and stop signs, ensures a structured and orderly movement of vehicles throughout the city's streets. Drivers can anticipate that their fellow motorists will adhere to these standards, thereby reducing the likelihood of chaotic traffic situations. Therefore, while driving your vehicle from McHenry car rentals, adhere to the traffic rules to promote a harmonious coexistence of convenience and regulation.
  • In McHenry, driving can be challenging during rush-hour periods. Rush hour occurs during the morning and evening hours on weekdays, roughly from around 7:00 am to 9:00 am and 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. During these times, major roads, including Route 31, Route 120, and Route 176, experience heavy traffic congestion, especially at key intersections and along stretches where there are commercial centers or schools. Given the potential for congestion on these major routes, some alternative roads to consider during rush hour include Bull Valley Road, Ringwood Road, and Chapel Hill Road to bypass the most heavily congested areas.
  • Book your car hire in McHenry at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
