Chicago Airport Mini Guide

If you are coming in from abroad the chances are that you will arrive at Chicago O’Hare Airport, one of the world’s busiest. It is a little further out than Midway Airport but has flights from four continents. From here to the city it is around seventeen miles and the best way to get there is by a hire car as you will get the use of it during your stay to explore the city and its district.

There are four terminals at Chicago O’Hare Airport, each with replicated facilities. If you lose your way around, there are several information desks and concierges to help you. To collect your hire car you will need to go to the lower level in arrivals to complete the paperwork.
