I'm travelling to visit my parents this holiday season to the Rockford area via Chicago. In the past I have taken the bus, however this year I'm thinking of taking Metra to the NW suburban area and renting a car as I was p;planning to rent one anyway and renting in the subburbs would most likely be cheaper and I have no desire to drive in the city. Anyone know of any rental car companies near a Metra stop in the Crystal Lake - Harvard area?

If you get off at the Pingree Rd station in Crystal Lake (the UP-NW line), there are 2 major car rental companies located less than 2 miles away from the station.

It will be much cheaper to rent a vehicle in the suburbs than in the city. I used to work for one of the rental companies mentioned above and can answer more specific questions if you have them.
