Location by Midway was greatThe drop off went smooth and the employees at the location by Midway airport in Chicago were very sweet and helpful.

Never AGAIN!NEVER AGAIN! This was booked less than a week before for car to be picked up on the Wed eve of Thanksgiving. They failed to disclose that they were not located with the other rental car companies at the airport, and that you have to take a 2nd shuttle that you call for to get to their lot. I started calling at 4:30pm and after 30 minutes of calling with no answer (once someone answered and hung up the phone), I took a cab to their lot only to find they were closed!!!! Took cab back to the airport and rented from Alamo, and the charge ended up being $110 less then Payless for the 3 day rental.

Late model car provided. Quick check-out, check-in.Surprised by non-airport location. Long wait for pickup vehicle. Off-airport location with 5:00 pm closing time weekdays. Car needed exterior wash.

Heads up for Midway, you need to take 2 different shuttles to rentalThe price was affordable...staff was pleasant. Car was clean.They don't tell you that you have to take a second shuttle from the first shuttle at Midway. The pick up office is so tiny, my luggage had to be brought in each piece at a time, since it wouldn't fit through the doorway. Only 2 people could wait in the office, it was so small. The parking lot does not have a drive to drop off car, so you just park it anywhere. No one tells you to write down your own mileage and bring it to the desk.

Great CarClean well maintained and comfortable. Drove to NYC and back to Chicago for a wedding and was very happy.Drop off was a bit long but not due yo employees but very rude customer. Handled well by person checking us in.

You get what you pay for?Chevy Malibu was nice driving car. Price was great.Got to rental office. Place packed, except no one from Payless around. Very disorganized. Long wait. Finally got car -- not the cleanest but we just wanted to go by then. Realized the odor we smelled was smoke. Yuk. Next day we found French fry holders, a plastic cup and food wrappers under passenger seat. Washed rear window while getting gas only to discover the grime was on the inside. Also, no mention of GPS, toll tag, extras, etc while checking out car. Would have been nice to know about some of that stuff, especially due to toll roads around Chicago. The drop off wasn't much better than pick up. One agent, packed small office. All in all you are getting what you pay for. Decent car, bare bones customer service. Be prepared to be underwhelmed.

A dirty car with a bad tireFirst car was very dirty, and while I was driving the front left tire blew out. When I traded it for another car, the service rep. told me it had had a slow leak prior. They should NOT have given it to me! The replacement car was newer, cleaner, and nicer. But the hassle (and potential danger) was upsetting.I think I already explained, above. I will give credit to the very helpful representative at the O'hare location, who helped me replace the bad car from the Midway location.

To pick it up...I waited at the counter before I was even acknowledgedOverall I was happy...but of coarse when I arrived I stood at the counter a while before anyone said anything... I made sure that the associates knew that I was there and still was ignored...

Pickup and dropoff was greatThe car looked clean but I had cleaning wipes and looks are deceiving. I used a half of container of the cleaning wipes and they was black after cleaning the car after I picked it up. The seats had some stains and brown stuff on them

Drop off was easy.I did not like that the car that I chose was not available. This place has limited options. It took about 30-40minutes to get my car rental since they had to clean it. The car also did not have a full tank of gas. Recommend going to another place.

Excellent Customer Service!They called me to confirm my rental after I booked it (a human), which was a very nice touch. The staff at the rental counter were extremely friendly and got me in and out quick on pick-up and again on return. Very grateful for excellent staff at the Enterprise in Oak Lawn, Illinois (SW Hwy)

When I booked I said car rental at O'Hare Airport. Apparently I got an Enterprise car rental about 1 hours from the airport because it was cheapest. When I went to the Enterprise rental car at O'Hare, they told me that happens a lot, but they did not offer any customer service. It was like "oh well". I asked if they could book me a car there at their location and they said they couldn't. Finally, after asking what I should do, they gave me some of their"competitor" phone numbers at O'hare location and I contacted them. Of course it was more money and we had to take a shuttle back to the airport and then over to the other agency, but we finally got the car! Terrible experience!

8.0 ExcellentNov 3 2015
Inconvenient yet okClean car on inside despite scratches all over the outside. Shuttle drivers personable. Rental staff nice.Not convenient to airport. You need to take normal rental car shuttle and then wait for another shuttle, that with traffic took 20 minutes to pick me up and another 15 minutes back to office. Thus, spent lots of time just getting shuttle. Not convenient to Midway. The extra time certainly not worth the few dollar savings.

comfortable and economical car, acceptable cuising performanceWe had a good car that proved very comfortable for what was a long journey, from Chicago to Newark in 8 days, with a few days stopped off here and there on the way. Fuel consumption was very good, particularly for a car in the USA (albeit a Korean one): 50mpg was pretty typical going a steady 60-70mph. Luggage space was very good. Budget was very amenable to our changing the drop-off location from Boston to Newark, at no additional cost (one-way rental cost already paid).We had to go for a one-way rental, which gave a very much more expensive per-day price for the car, particularly for a short rental of 8 days. Notwithstanding this expense, it was possible to get a one-way rental and it was, if anything, less expensive than other suppliers.

I was booked for a pickup at an offsite location that was closed!I booked for a a one-way pickup for a flight arriving at MDW at 8:55 pm. I was booked for a pickup Budget at an offsite location down the road in another city that closes at 6 pm! Why would your website do such a thing? When I asked if I could rent a car from the MDW Budget location, I was told that it would cost over $1,200 instead of the $199 price of my reservation. Outrageous! I ended up going to another rental company at MDW and having to pay something like $660 for this rental (more than 3 times the original price, but almost half as much as the best rate I could get from Budget at MDW).

The workers were Nice and courteous.I had a reservation, but when I showed up, they said "as you can see, we don't have any cars left. Let's see what we can do ".There was a vehicle in the lot they rented to me but low tire pressure light was on as I was driving away. He put air in it. By the next day, I had to put air in the tire, and EVERY DAY. The vehicle also had NO or FROZEN windshield wiper fluid. Scary driving and had to stop and clean windshield often. The rental location was also off site with no airport shuttle service. I originally shuttled to airport rental and then had to UBER back and forth each way to get to the airport. Cost me another $30.

Under 25 and major credit card policy rental was not Explicitly listed beforehand so when I got there, I was unable to actually rent my car even after paying the insurance.

Great car for the price!We stayed about a mile down at a nearby hotel. The guy at Budget volunteered to co e pick us up to get our rental car! Going beyond the call of duty! The car was really nice Mazda 6 with a push button start engine, leather seats, and an awesome Bluetooth radio system. Everybody at the rental office was very friendly and they even washed our car and vacuumed it out right before we received the keys.Can’t say anything bad about this Budget rental.

Hertz NEVER AGAIN - I did not Rent the vehicleNOTHINGThere was Nothing I liked about the experience. My appointment was at 4:00 p.m., I called and informed them that I was running late. I arrived at the facility at 5:58, but they were closed, even though they were not suppose to close until 6:00 p.m., I was knocking at the door and calling the 800 customer service number when a young lady came out and stated "We close on time and walked away". When the customer service representative came on line she only wanted assist me with getting a vehicle from the airport at 100% of the amount I had already paid. Totally unhelpful and uncaring of the situation.

Incomplete info on websiteYour website did not reflect the Hertz policy that the card used to make the reservation had to be presented when picking up the car. A corporate AM EX was used to pay for the rental. Since I did not have the card with me, I had to use my own credit card for the rental. The rental charge was higher since I was making a same day reservation.That the website stated the reservation was paid in full but made no mention that I had to have the same credit card used to make the reservation with me at the time of pick up. I was prepared to use my own card for the deposit, but expected the rental to be charged to the corporate card that was used. Because of this I have to wait "up to 7 days" for the security deposit to be refunded and at least two weeks for the reimbursement from work for the rental.

Car hire excess insurance in Oak Lawn

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Oak Lawn car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Oak Lawn.


Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Oak Lawn car rental.
