Car rental FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car rentals in Peoria, IL, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on July 11, 2024.
  • Will I have to worry about driving through a lot of snow if I rent a car in Peoria in the winter?

    Peoria has cold winters with snow, but the snow doesn't tend to build up on the roads. When it snows, there is usually less than an inch of snow left on the ground. However, when you are driving in the snow, you should drive with caution since snowy, wet roads in cold weather can become icy and slick. Drive a little more slowly than usual and don't tailgate, because you will need more room than usual to complete a stop. Also, May is the rainiest month in Peoria, and you should drive with caution because roads can become slick.

  • What's the youngest I can be in order to rent a car in Peoria?

    To rent a car in Peoria, or anywhere in Illinois, you need to be at least 21 years old. However, some car rental agencies require you to be 25, such as Enterprise. Some car rental agencies will add a daily fee to your rental contract if you are between the ages of 21 and 24. At the time that you collect your rental car, you will need to show a valid, government issue driver's license with a photo, a Mastercard, Visa, or other card in the same name as the one on the driver's license, and some agencies require you to show evidence of your insurance if you refuse theirs.

  • What is it like to drive a rental car in the city of Peoria?

    While Peoria’s rush hour traffic is not nearly as bad as the traffic in big cities such as Chicago or Los Angeles, things do get congested during morning and evening commutes, especially at traffic lights. The intersection at University and Main is particularly backed up. Many of the city streets in Peoria are in poor condition, with cracked pavement and potholes. When you are driving your rental car through Peoria, drive carefully over rough streets to avoid getting a flat tire.
