KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Algonquin

  • Algonquin offers reliable bus transportation, but the fixed schedules affect your plan to explore the city. Therefore, consider driving Algonquin car rentals for maximum exploration and satisfaction during your stay in the city.

  • Several airports serve Algonquin. Milwaukee-Mitchell Airport (MKE) has car rental agencies near the main parking, across the baggage claim area and at Chicago Midway Airport (MDW), car rental agencies are located inside the terminal at the lower level.

Despite driving a vehicle with quality tires, always maintain a safe distance between vehicles, drive slowly, and keep the headlights on to increase visibility.

Pros:

There was a car available last minute

Cons:

The car wasn’t clean. At drop off the clerk was grumpy, grouchy—irritated that I was there. Very short with me—rolled his eyes, got frustrated because I did t come in with vehicle miles.

Pros:

The people here are super friendly and the prices are fair. Last time I rented a car (from another company) the workers were extremely shady and tried to upcharge me on everything, not to mention that they scam a lot of people by making false claims and then charging for them. Instead of AVIS making me feel like they were doing me a huge favor and I needed them, they treated me with respect and alike they valued me as a customer. Very easy and hassle free. Will definitely be renting from AVIS exclusively from now on.

Cons:

Everything was perfect.

Pros:

Really good experience! The staff was very helpful, worked quickly and carefully in a very busy season, and delivered what they promised. I also liked how they didn't over push the add ons. Just asked if we needed insurance, toll pass, etc. without pushing. The cart I had (dodge dart) was very new and worked great though I detected a noticeable rattle which didn't efect driving but for a new car probably shouldnt be there. Overall great experience. btw boooked through kayak . -Mike
