KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Skokie

  • When considering a trip to Skokie, consider renting a car. You will only have so many opportunities to take in the almost infinite variety of sights and activities. However, if you opt for a car rental in Skokie, you'll have the time and convenience to make the most of your experience. By properly scheduling your time, you may avoid standing in line as you would on public transportation and make as many stops as you like. You will have the time and freedom to travel and see wherever you desire. For instance, you can easily go to Emily Oaks Nature Center to go and explore different exhibits and trail walk with Skokie car rentals. The location is 0.5 miles from the city center, and you can get there in 9 minutes.
  • Because there are so many Skokie car rental companies in the city, renting a car at the airport is advised. The automobile rental companies are reputable and provide fantastic savings near airport locations. You can find many well-known automobile rental companies in airports, including but not limited to Dollar, Hertz, Avis, Enterprise and Alamo. In these rental car companies, you may easily get any vehicle of your choice. So, if you fly into Chicago O'hare International Airport, use the many Skokie car rental companies and reserve a vehicle.
  • You should be prepared for a lot of cyclists to share the road with automobiles when driving your car rental in Skokie. They frequently disregard the rules imposed by traffic lights. If you're not careful, this might be dangerous. When passing them and overtaking them, be alert. Again, the city contains a number of crossings that can be perplexing to navigate. Make sure the rental car you choose has a navigation system if you are unfamiliar with the area.
  • During rush hour, Skokie is renowned for having significant traffic congestion on its major roadways and crossings. Be prepared for significant delays if you take Inbound Edens from Deerfield Rd to I-290/Jane Byrne Interchange during rush hour. Avoid traveling during peak hours if you want to take advantage of the convenience of driving your car rental in Skokie. Arrive at your destination either before or after peak times. In Skokie, you can also drive a smaller rental car to escape traffic jams by navigating the city's winding lanes, especially early in the morning and late at night.

May 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

The scheduled pick up time was for after this location was already closed. We showed up and no one was there. Very disappointing! We had to change our plans and come back the next day. The staff was not apologetic at all and said oh yeah we tried to call you. I guess they don’t know how to use a phone because I never got a phone call. Very unprofessional and super inconvenient. Made my husband late for work. Also when we pick the car up the following morning they tried to give my husband a smaller cheaper car than what we had originally paid for no offer for an upgrade or anything better because of the inconvenience. Overall very poor experience.

Cons:

Pretty much everything.

Its a bit challenging to figure out how to get into their parking lot if you follow Google Maps. It takes you around the back of the building off a side street.

Cons:

I had a reservation for 6pm. I was running a little late, so tried calling prior in order to let them know I hadn't forgotten. No answer. I went anyways, thinking they had missed the phone call - no luck. Closed without any communication whatsoever. I had to take an extra hour out of my day to go to a different rental place (which was also significantly more expensive). Absolutely disappointing.

I will never use Hertz again!
