Joining NÜ Car Rentals’ global affiliate network, Canada-based Routes Car Rental has opened its first U.S. rental office, servicing customers at Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

The 3.5-acre facility includes a 5,000-square-foot rental facility and is located at 3901 Mannheim Rd., directly adjacent to the airport.

To help facilitate the expansion, Routes has joined the NÜ Car Rentals global network. NÜ customers now have service availability in Canada as well as at the new Chicago location. Via NÜ’s marketing channels, Routes receives reservations from new customers worldwide to supplement its Canadian customer base, according to the company.

“We are excited about the new affiliation with Routes and the unique opportunity to gain a presence throughout Canada with a single operator known for both quality service and new vehicles,” said Mark Walker, vice president of finance at NÜ Car Rentals. “We see great potential with the new O’Hare location as we continue to expand into major U.S. business destinations in addition to our traditional leisure markets.”
