Illinois car rental information

The roads in Illinois are known for being flat and in good conditions. However, the state of Illinois is known to get an amount of snowfall in the winter that affects driving. Those who wish to rent a car in Illinois between November and April should be prepared to drive in snow. In this case make sure your Illinois rental car has winter tires and we suggest looking to book a vehicle with four-wheel drive for better traction.

The I70 and I90 travel east/west and the I55 connect the largest cities of Chicago and St. Louis.
