Car Rentals Milwaukee: Finding your way around 

When picking up your Milwaukee Airport rental car, keep these driving tips in mind. 

  • General Mitchell International Airport is located just six miles to the south of Milwaukee, with the drive to town averaging around 18 minutes. Take S. Howell Ave from the airport and follow the signs straight to the CBD. 
  • Milwaukee is located in a highly-populated area just north of Chicago and can get very busy. Travel time can almost double during rush hour, so plan accordingly. Check traffic reports and the weather forecast before departing. 
  • For the latest local information, visit, dial 511, download the free 511 Wisconsin mobile app, and receive customized alerts. 
  • Remember to move over for emergency personnel: The Move Over Law requires all drivers to move over or slow down for emergency vehicles and personnel working on the freeway. 
  • Street parking is available throughout the city. The MKE Park meters are set up for payment by cash, credit card, and mobile phone. If there are no time restrictions, you may park there all day.
