One can hire a vehicle at Chicago Midway International Airport through the common centre, where all the car rental companies are concentrated. This centre is located at the following address: Midway's Rental Car Facility 5150 W. 55th Street. A rental car collection point is found next to the economy parking garage. In order to get in the shuttles, which take customers to the car hire and collection point, the arriving passengers should proceed from the baggage claim area to the exit from the arrival hall. Clients are picked up by the shuttles, going to the car rental centre, near Gate 3 (the lower level). The shuttle service is available round the clock. The centre features nine international major vehicle hire companies. These are Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Hertz, Enterprise, National, Thrifty, and Corporate.
There are information desks with the contact details of the car rental firms in the arrival hall, so that the customers may clarify some information about the availability of models and tariffs for the services, provided by the companies. This information can also be found on the official website of the airport. The leased cars are returned to the parking lot of the car rental office in the airport, if some other car return location is not specified in the rental agreement. The office works 24 hours a day. One should find out the work schedule of the representative office of a certain firm in advance.
A parking garage is placed in front of the main terminal. There are several types of parking in its territory. These are short-term parking (level 1) and long-term one (levels 2-6). Moreover, there is a long-term car park and economy parking, lying at a certain distance from the terminal buildings. They are found on the side of Terminal C, along 55th Street.
