KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Waukegan

  • The greatest way to make your trip to Waukegan unforgettable is by renting a car. You will have complete freedom and convenience to both explore the magnificent city and journey to other exciting and opulent locations outside of it. Despite providing yourself and your loved ones with a leisure adventure that you will live to envy, you will stay within your budget and adhere to your goals. Six Flags Great America, Waukegan History Museum, and National Museum of the American Sailor are just a few of the historical arts and culture destinations you shouldn't pass up. Consider that you wish to travel 5 miles to Beach Park for the weekend. You can arrive there without a problem in under 20 minutes with your car rental in Waukegan.
  • Book your car rental at the airport upon arrival or prior to your arrival for convenience. Take advantage of the several inexpensive Waukegan car rental companies to obtain a rental car if you land at Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD). These rental car companies are not only trusted but also reasonably priced. You might come across Dollar, Hertz, Easirent, Enterprise, Budget, and Avis, to name a few well-known vehicle rental companies. The operational terms used by these rental car companies vary. You should always speak with multiple companies to choose a car rental in Waukegan that best serves your needs.
  • You will come across a number of intersections when driving your car rental in Waukegan. Some are worse and more confusing; if you're not familiar with the streets, you can choose the wrong lane. Fortunately, Waukegan car rentals commonly come equipped with a GPS system to make navigating the city's streets easy. You will receive instructions from the authorities on how to utilize the navigation system. The city's pedestrians are also notorious for jaywalking. They frequently cross the street without using any hand signals or obeying the rules of the traffic lights. Hence, driving in the city requires extreme caution.
  • Similar to other US cities, Waukegan is teeming with automobiles, which during rush hours causes severe traffic congestion along the city's main roads and streets. As a result, if you travel in the morning between 7 and 10 am and in the evening between 4 and 7 pm, you should prepare for significant delays. Avoid congested areas like the intersection of Chestnut Avenue and Waukegan Drive intersection, Washington Street, Belvidere Street and Robert McClory Bike Path while commuting during these hours. However, if you have a smaller automobile, you can maneuver through narrow streets to avoid delays.
  • Book your car hire in Waukegan at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Waukegan are around 5% more expensive than other car types, on average

You don't have to wait around in traffic, which saves you time. Additionally, the car is inexpensive and uses little gas because you need a smaller parking space. Alternatively, you can opt for a van, minivan or SUV if you are in town with a group of people or family. These vehicles can accommodate a large group plus their luggage.

  • What's the speed limit in Waukegan?

    Considering Waukegan's well-paved roads, driving there might be enjoyable. You must, however, follow the laws governing the posted speed limit. The city set several street-by-street speed limits. The average speed limit for driving in and out of commercial, residential, and school zones is 25 mph. The speed restriction is 40 mph on all other roadways, including highways. If you exceed the posted speed limits, you risk getting caught by the city's speed cameras and facing serious penalties.

  • Where are the best places to park in Waukegan?

    A parking lot will eventually be necessary when driving your rental car in Fishers. Thankfully, there are plenty of locations to park your rental car throughout the city. However, locations like 225 N. County Street Lot C, the municipal parking garage, the 18 N County Street Lake County Parking Garage, and the Grand Avenue in Waukegan 3010 are suggested. Their prices are affordable. Additionally, the corner of North County and Clayton Streets both offer free parking for your car rental in Waukegan.

Cons:

I had rented the vehicle three weeks before I got there and it was confirmed on rental cars.com but when I got to hertz they told me they had no vehicle for me nor did they even care so I called rental cars.com and they told me since I didn’t pay for it upfront there’s really no reason they felt responsible that I should have one. That’s how Hertz and rental cars.com treated me.

Cons:

The pickup we rented, 2020 Chevy Silverado just didn't have the options we were hoping for. 1. Rear seat lighters for cell charges. 2. Electric seat adjustment. 3. Electric windows were not one push up and down. We had to hold the button to make it do that. 4. Blue tooth radio was difficult to operate. (Android Auto) not intuitive. It would take over and cut out in the middle of trying to follow GPS.

Pros:

Yes the drop off was easy. The car that I used surprised me at how well it responded, the model was an Elantra that is good on gas and runs great.

Cons:

What could have been better was having my I pass device in a location that was detectable when going through the tolls, I got dinged 3 times because it was not read. That was my fault.

Thought I was renting a Chrysler Pacifica, but got a Dodge Grand Caravan with 30K miles instead. Disappointing.

Renting a car though them is a joke! There are so many things that need to be paid that isn't told to you when you reserve a vehicle. We wasted so much time going there, after getting lost trying to find the place, because that is unclear, as well, and we weren't even able to rent the car anyways. Very disappointed and will never do that again. Also tell people that they need to pass a credit check before they waste their time! Some people live paycheck to paycheck, you know!

Cons:

First, it was almost impossible to even find the Avis office, which we eventually learned was located inside a CLOSED shopping mall. After 2 phone calls we were directed to some side door that was barely marked, that let us into a storage room, and then behind the Avis counter. Thank God I did not need the car to get to the airport at this time, I would have been a nervous wreck. Then the vehicles windows were absolutely filthy both inside and out. I had to stop at a service station down the road to clean them myself. When I dropped the car off at your O'Hare facility, I was frantically waved into a line of cars, barely got my suitcase out of the trunk when a receipt was thrust into my face and the young man was off to the cars behind me that were filling in fast. I had to run after him to ask him where I was supposed to go from there because I found myself literally surrounded by vehicles in every direction and no signs of an office. This young man clearly needed a lot more help if he was going to be able to provide even common courtesy let alone assistance. Seriously, the entire experience was very unorganized, unprofessional, and unpleasant. But thank you for asking and allowing me to share my experience with you.
