    Chicago Auto Hire Surcharges To Be Aware Of

    Learn About Hire Extra Costs within ChicagoYou certainly are not the only one if you have been browsing a few car hire sites to locate the perfect rate on your next vehicle hire in Chicago. But before you book it's important to be aware of the numerous fees and hire surcharges which may not be displayed prominently in your hire vehicle quote. Generally, a deal that is too good to be true, it probably is. Numerous online car hire companies don't show you the mandatory industry taxes and fees that are required by law. You'll be required to pay these surcharges at the pick-up counter, and could pay more than the transparent, inclusive price shown on this site.

    We're proud of the way we value our customers, and that's the reason our team makes every attempt to display a transparent daily rate. If you are exhausted by the run-around and prefer crystal-clear, simple-to-grasp rates - you are far from the only one. To clarify car hire pricing, we have highlighted a few common costs which quite a few customers travelling to Chicago might not be familiar with. The frequent types of industry add-on costs discussed below are a terrific place to start to be certain that you are educated when reserving an auto hire in Chicago.

    Pick-Up Location Charges for Car Hires in Chicago

    $$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Rarely Disclosed by Others

    Parking space at a major airport or train station comes at a premium, and to cover this cost, car hire agencies who offer convenient pick-up and drop-off right at these terminals will often pass a portion of these costs to travellers in the form of an Airport Surcharge, Premium Location Surcharge, Parking Fee or Rail Station Surcharge. There is a way to avoid these car hire fees. If you don't mind travelling to a downtown location in Chicago to pick-up your vehicle, you can avoid paying this convenience cost, but most travellers who factor in the expense and time of catching a cab to a downtown office opt for airport or rail-station pick-up, justifying the extra cost as a worthwhile expense to get on the road faster and maximize their time in Chicago. Wherever you choose to pick up your car hire in Chicago, we recommend that you pay careful attention to the office's business hours on your Auto Europe voucher so that you can return your vehicle when their office is open. This way you can avoid costly Late Return Fees, sometimes called Out of Hours Fees.

    Various Driver Costs for Driving a Car Hire in Chicago

    $$$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Rarely Disclosed by Others

    Drivers who are young (usually under the age of 25) or older (typically 65 or older) may be asked to pay a Senior Driver Fee or Young Driver Surcharge at the counter when picking up their car hire in Chicago. Drivers in these age brackets tend to be considered higher risk, and some (but not all) local operators will charge a daily fee to hire to older or younger drivers. This fee varies depending upon the car hire agency you've booked with, but can be €5 per day, or more. Auto Europe may be able to compare your booking details between other local providers to help you find a vehicle with a lower (or no) additional driver fee to save you money. Call us if you'd like some help.

    Car Hire Fuel Policy Charges and Fees

    $$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Sometimes Disclosed by Others

    One of the best-understood car hire fees (but also one that is often overlooked) is the fuel policy of your hire. If you have a Full to Full policy on your hire contract, you can avoid any extra fee by filling your car with fuel before dropping it off at the end of your trip. A Full to Empty policy allows you to drop your vehicle off at any fuel level without worrying about extra fees.

    One Way Car Hire Surcharges in Chicago

    $$$$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Sometimes Disclosed by Others

    If your itinerary involves picking up your car hire in Chicago and dropping it off in another destination, then you may be required to pay an additional fee. Drop fees or Drop Charges are sometimes referred to as an "International One Way Fee" or a "Domestic One Way Fee," and can range in price depending upon your unique itinerary. Typically, international one way hires (where you hire a car in one nation, drive to a neighboring nation and drop off your vehicle there) are more expensive. Sometimes arranging two separate car hire bookings and a short train ride or transfer across the border can save you hundreds of Euros. Contact an Auto Europe specialist if you'd like us to find you ways to save on your one way car hire in Chicago.

    Extra Car Hire Fees for Vehicle Equipment in Chicago

    $$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Always Disclosed by Others
