Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) is one of the largest and most important airports in the world, handling over 60 million passengers per year. The airport serves the city of Chicago and surrounding areas, and is located about 17 miles, or 27km from the Chicago Loop. It is known by a couple of names, for example, O’Hare, the Chicago International Airport and as the O’Hare Field, and is named after Edward O’Hare. The airport has extensive facilities, including car rental companies, such as Hertz Chicago O’Hare International Airport. Many customers choose Hertz for their wide range of quality vehicles and professional car hire services.
Chicago O’Hare International Airport, the third largest airport in the world, has four terminal buildings, named as Terminals 1, 2, 3 and 5. Most of the airport’s international flights arrive at Terminal 5, besides those from airports with U.S. border preclearance facilities, and Terminal 1 is the hub for United Airlines. Delta Air Lines and US Airways operate from Terminal 2, and Terminal 3 is the hub facility for American Airlines. Hertz at this rental location is found on the lower level of the airport, nearby the baggage reclaim areas of Terminals 1, 2 and 3, and is open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. There are signs that lead the way to the Chicago O’Hare International Airport car hire companies, and courtesy telephones for the use of car hire customers. Passengers arriving in Terminal 5 have access to courtesy phones on the lower level of the terminal.
Although Chicago O’Hare Airport is very large, it is quite easy to transfer from one terminal to the next, as the ATS, or Airport Transit System, is available. This automated people mover system is free to use by all persons at the airport, and moves efficiently between all terminals and the remote car parks. It is also operational twenty-four hours a day. Passengers arriving in any terminal will therefore be able to reach their car hire company.
Hertz is most popular perhaps for their unique service that allows customers to hire a car by its specific make and model. In the United States, and at Chicago Airport, customers can choose specific cars from the Green Traveller Collection, the Prestige Collection or from the Adrenaline Collection. ‘Green’ cars are as their name suggests, friendly to the environment, and include the Smart Electric Vehicle, Nissan Leaf Electric Vehicle, Toyota Prius Hybrid, Volkswagen Jetta TDI and Tesla Roadster Electric Vehicle. Most cars in this category have central locking, cruise control, power brakes, power steering and dual airbags. They are also cars with automatic transmissions.
The Prestige Collection is a large variety of more elegant and stylish vehicles that are ideal for persons arriving for business purposes in Chicago. These cars are the ideal choice when a prestigious function will need to be attended. Some examples of Prestige vehicles are the Volvo S80 Sedan, Mercedes E Class, Cadillac CTS, Mercedes C Series, Lincoln Navigator 4WD, Cadillac SRX and the Infiniti FX35. Many customers also love the cars in the Adrenaline Collection, as they are somewhat different, and more exciting than an ordinary rental. ‘Adrenaline’ cars include the Dodge Caliber R/T, Corvette Convertible, Chevy Camaro SS and the Ford Mustang GT Premium. There are also many ordinary car rentals from Hertz, and the other Chicago O’Hare International Airport car rental companies, for example the Kia Rio, Toyota Corolla, Nissan Altima and Nissan Maxima. Hertz has a number of large vehicles available for hire as well, such as the Dodge Grand Caravan, Chevy Traverse 4WD, GMC Yukon, Ford Super Clubwagon and the Chevrolet Suburban. The Ford Super Clubwagon seats twelve passengers.
At Hertz, many car hire options are available, including Hertz one way hires, or the Hertz Rent-It-Here and Leave-It-There service, and the Hertz 369 service, and customers may also hire additional items of equipment for their vehicles. From Chicago O’Hare Airport, one way hires may be driven to any location in the United States, and are when the car is returned to a different location. The service may incur additional charges. The Hertz 369 service is convenient for passengers who only need a vehicle for a few hours to run errands in the city. Cars can be hired for three, six or nine hours, and come with a limited number of miles that are free of charge. Customers with babies or young children can hire child seats or booster seats from Hertz, for an additional cost per day of hire, or per rental, and all drivers who are unfamiliar with the Chicago area are recommended to arrange a satellite navigation system from Hertz. The Hertz NeverLost In-Car navigation system will ensure that you are ‘neverlost’!
All passengers, including persons with disabilities, will find Chicago O’Hare Airport to be accessible. There are many special services and facilities in place to ensure a person in a wheelchair has a comfortable stay at the airport. Hertz hand controls are available for persons with a lower limb disability as well, and are hired free of charge from Chicago O’Hare International Airport. Hand controls should, however, be reserved in advance, as they are only available on certain types of automatic vehicles, and will need to be fitted prior to your arrival.
