KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Wheeling

  • Car rentals in Wheeling offer numerous advantages for travelers visiting the city. It provides convenience and flexibility, allowing you to explore Wheeling and the nearby areas at your terms and conditions. Renting a car also saves you from the hassle of relying on public transportation schedules and routes. It gives you the freedom to plan your itinerary and visit off-the-beaten-path destinations. Car rentals in Wheeling offer comfort and privacy, ensuring a stress-free travel experience. With Wheeling car rentals, you can visit popular attractions like the Chicago Botanic Garden or take a scenic drive along the North Shore.
  • O'Hare International Airport (ORD) is the nearest airport to land when visiting Wheeling. After arriving at the terminals, please look for the signs guiding you toward the Airport Transit System (ATS) that will take you to ORD's rental car facility. The rental car facility is located within the Multi-Modal Facility (MMF). Once you reach the MMF, go to the car rental counter, where you can complete the necessary paperwork and get your rental agreement. You could also book your car from the KAYAK website page before your flight to the city.
  • Driving car rentals in Wheeling is quite easy due to the generally good roads in the town. Familiarize yourself with the local traffic laws and regulations. It's essential to adhere to speed limits and traffic signals to ensure your safety and avoid potential fines.

Wheeling experiences cold winters, and while the city makes efforts to clear the roads, it's important to exercise caution and be prepared for potential delays and reduced traction during winter weather events.

Pros:

Got an unexpected upgrade because the type I rented wasn't available. Vehicle was in excellent condition. Lenience with dropoff time is a good policy.

Cons:

Car rentals are expensive, period; not my favorite way to spend money. Not a fan of the hard sell on extra unnecessary insurance; my ability with risk assessment is better than that.

Pros:

Tyler was the most pleasant and professional rental car agent I've EVER encountered. So personable, professional and accommodating. He also had great follow up and memory when I called to ask him a question. Honestly, Enterprise would be foolish to not pay attention or not advance this employee. I'd rent again from Enterprise just because of Tyler and what a great brand ambassador he was!

Pros:

Customer service at Palatine location was excellent!

Cons:

The car I requested was not available. My rate was adjusted and the team member and I found a car together that worked for me. No complaints, but it would’ve been nice to have the SUV. The car also had a distinct smell as if the previous renter had smoked A LOT of cigarettes inside of it. It was not unbearable, but I got out of the car smelling like the cigarettes. In retrospect, I would’ve found a vehicle without the smell.

Cons:

They don't write in the price of the insurance which doubles the price of the car. I asked if I could have the insurance fee removed and they told me to drive back to the pick up location which I did and when I got there they told me if they took the insurance off they would have to close out my reservation and start a new one which would charge me twice for the initial day. Very frustrating and they were not very helpful.
