Drivers who rent with Windy City Coasting not only have 24/7 access to our premium fleet, but also our premium customer support. Should the need arise at any point during your experience, we’ve got your covered.
We are committed to public health and the cleanliness of our vehicles, especially in these unprecedented times. We make it our duty to guarantee our vehicles are as clean as possible for every rental.
TRAINING & GUIDANCE
Teslas are unique, so we created a custom training and guidance document for first time Tesla drivers.
Upon rental, we review the battery, charging, and autopilot features so drivers are prepared to operate their rental.
Looking to test drive before you buy? Interested in starting your own Tesla rental fleet? Just curious about ownership? We offer consulting services as well. You can reach out to us via the Contact form and we’ll be in touch!
