KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Hammond

  • A rental car in Hammond provides you with the freedom and flexibility to explore the city and its surrounding areas at your own pace. You can easily visit nearby attractions, drive to neighboring towns, and create your own itinerary without relying on public transportation schedules. Also, as Hammond is located in Lake County, Indiana, which offers beautiful natural areas like the Indiana Dunes National Park and Wolf Lake Memorial Park, a rental car allows you to access and explore these natural attractions easily. These sites are not accessible by public transportation.
  • If you arrive in Hammond, Indiana, via air, you will likely land at Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW). The car rental center at this facility is located off-site, separate from the airport terminals. It houses several car hire companies, including National, Thrifty, Enterprise, Avis, Budget, Alamo, and Dollar.  A courtesy shuttle runs around the clock between the terminals and the car rental center, making pick-ups and drop-offs at minute-minute intervals. Book your car rental in Hammond online in advance to avoid last-minute rushes at the rental counters.
  • Hammond has a mix of urban and suburban areas, which can present challenges such as more frequent intersections, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Stay vigilant, observe traffic laws, and watch out for vulnerable road users. In addition, Hammond has several railroad crossings due to its industrial history. Exercise caution when approaching railroad crossings, adhere to warning signals, and never attempt to cross when a train is approaching. Furthermore, if you are unfamiliar with the area, navigating Hammond's road network may require attention and a reliable navigation system or GPS. Therefore, familiarize yourself with major roads and landmarks before hitting the road in a Hammond car rental.
  • Compared to larger cities, Hammond, Indiana, generally experiences less severe traffic congestion. However, certain areas and road segments in Hammond can experience road congestion, especially during rush commuting hours when residents move to and from work. This occurs between 7:00 am and 9:00 am, and from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. It is unsurprising to find increased traffic volume on major roadways, such as Interstate 80/94 (Borman Expressway), Kennedy Avenue, and Indianapolis Boulevard. Moreover, certain areas of Hammond may experience temporary snarl-ups during special events, concerts, or festivals. It's thus advisable to map your routes before traveling.

When I booked the car online, I called ahead to make sure the car I selected would be available. The person I spoke to assured me that there wouldn't be any issues with getting the car I wanted. However, 30-45 minutes before I was supposed to pick it up, I got a call saying they didn't have any premium cars available, only small economy cars.
