I will never use Hertz again! The car died and the "emergency" assistance was the worst I've ever experience; being on hold for 40 minutes at a time, impossible to talk to an actual person--then taking SIX hours to get a replacement while my children and I were left on the side of a busy highway!!!

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.Pretty much everything.

Friendly staff. Great car. Easy pick up and drop offIts 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.

Great Service, awful carCustomer service was excellentJeep Compass is the worse car I have ever driven. I think the car was defective, because there is no way something like this vehicle should be allowed on the road if I was driving a vehicle without a defect.

Syringe Needles in CarFound used syringe needles in the car. When I dropped it off, they were appropriately mortified, but wouldn't offer any discount. I'm still waiting for a call back from customer service.

The same rental in Evanston vs. renting at O'Hare saved me a lot of money. Airport fees are obviously very high at O'Hare. Helpful friendly personnel and a nice car.

Mixed FeelingsI enjoyed that rental was easy, cheap, and quick. I was in and out both times very fast.I didn't like the fact that the men inside who were helping me just stood around and talked nastily about me while my wife was outside struggling with bags. I was doing the final inspection of the car and we were moving our things inside the waiting room to get out of the way, but rather than helping my wife with the bags, the two men working just watched as the wind blew up her dress from inside the storefront. Not cool, not cool at all. Also not only did they badmouth me for "not filling the gas tank" which it was full. They also gave me grief about arriving at 245, when very clearly my check out time was 3. If anything I did then a favor.

No carThey did not have a car for me. Apparently their customers extended the rental so they did not have a car for me

Despite having made a reservation weeks in advance, this location didn't have any cars. I was forced to find another rental agency in the city.

Staff was friendly, but there were no carsIf there had been a car available for me, or if I had received any sort of communication letting me know that there was no car available for me in spite of having a reservation

The staff was not friendly AT ALL! I will never go there again. The car smelled like smoke and alcohol (they had a sign cars would be smoke free..). One of the staff was rude the entire time and the car was dirty and with a broken transponder. I will DISSUADE people from ever doing business with AVIS at this location. Overall HORRIBLE !DO NOT RENT CARS AT THIS LOCATION! ! ! The car smelled like smoke and alcohol badly and we found the car extremely dirty with cookies and fries under the seats (all of this during Covid times...). They gave a car with maintenance issues and a broken transponder. Called the rep from the facility and mentioned I would have to clean car myself while I had to pay for all my toll roads. HORRIBLE! Please DO NOT rent cars from this branch!!!

The Avis rental on Chicago in Evanston is my favorite place to rent cars. Friendly, uncomplicated, and I will be back!

Car rental insurance in Wilmette

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Wilmette car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Wilmette.


Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Wilmette car rental.
