Chicago-ORD-Airport-Car-Rental

Need a car rental at Chicago’s largest airport? It may not be the largest airport in America anymore, but Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) is once again the busiest, having surpassed Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson in flight traffic last year.

O’Hare has four terminals—1, 2, 3 and 5. There is no Terminal 4. (There once was a Terminal 4 for international flights but that building is now the airport’s shuttle bus depot.) Among the quartet of existing terminals, Terminal 5 serves international flights while Terminals 1 through 3 serve domestic travel and are connected to each other. The largest, Terminal 3, includes four separate concourses.

Rental Cars at ORD Airport

Need to pick up a rental car? From the lower-level baggage claim area, you can catch a 24-hour shuttle from the curb. The digital display on the bus will read: “Rental Cars / Parking Lot F.” Each terminal has designated areas for drop-off and pick-up. From there, the buses go to O’Hare’s Multi-Modal Facility, a one-stop-shop for all the major rental car companies at the airport.
