For a true driving experience, take to the roads of a major downtown metropolis...like Chicago. There's no better way to travel the city's gridded street system than by car. Sure, it's nice to take a stroll down the famed Magnificent Mile in the summertime, but when masses of tourists hold up sidewalk traffic while they try to take self-portraits in the reflective Bean sculpture, it's much easier to cruise down Michigan Avenue in a cheap Chicago rental car.
But there's more to the Windy City than the downtown Loop neighborhood -- visitors can pick up a rental car in one of many spots around town and head to the fittingly named Wrigleyville to catch a Cubs game, for one. Bucktown and Wicker Park offers visitors looking for some primo boutique shopping a perfect place to embark on a bout of retail therapy, while the Museum Campus gives you enough facts to fill your entire brain with at the Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum, Adler Planetarium and more.
Whatever neighborhood you end up visiting, you'll find plenty of places to pick up a discount Chicago rental car. Booking with Hotwire takes all the guesswork out of shopping around for the best car rental rates. That way, all you have to worry about is where to eat your deep dish pizza and what sights to see.Find more discount rental cars »
