Nebraska Guide


Nebraska is a vast, centrally located, American prairie state where 89 per cent of communities contain fewer than 3,000 people. Nebraska’s northwest Pine Ridge forests are just one of many exceptions to the state’s stereotypically flat terrain. None of the Western Hemisphere’s other sand dune formations can rival the size of Nebraska’s 20-mile long Sand Hills. The Chimney Rock National Historic Site officially marks where Nebraska’s prairies end and the Western Foothills leading to the Rocky Mountains begin.

Hiring a Vehicle

Rental vehicles can be found in eastern Nebraska’s Metropolitan region, which contains the vast majority of the state’s population and cultural attractions. Eppley Airfield and Lincoln Airport both offer wide varieties of vehicles, with companies such as Avis, Budget Hertz, Enterprise and others represented. Compare car hire early to get the best discounts.

Transport Options

Neither Lincoln Airport nor Omaha’s Eppley Airfield, Nebraska’s two largest airports, offer any international flights. Omaha and Lincoln are also stops along Amtrak’s California Zephyr rail line and Greyhound bus routes. The Burlington Trailways and Arrow Stage Lines bus companies serve some smaller Nebraska cities. Otherwise, car hire in Nebraska is frequently the only way to reach most parts of this largely rural state.

Car Hire Driving Tips in Nebraska

Despite Nebraska’s vast size, it takes just over an hour to drive between Lincoln, the state capital, and Nebraska’s largest city, Omaha, along Interstate 80 with car rental in Nebraska. Interstate 80 extends west to east across the entire state and connects with Interstate 76, the state’s only other major Interstate highway, near the Colorado border. Nebraska’s Interstate 76 stretch is slightly more than three miles long.

Not to be Missed!

Motorists wishing to venture away from Interstate 80’s sometimes monotonous flat Platte River valley scenery have plenty of fascinating back roads to choose from. The transitional Western Foothills cover most of Nebraska’s panhandle, while the towering Sand Hills extend for 20 miles over sparsely populated ranch country. The Chimney Rock National Historic Site and Scotts Bluff National Monument stand tall over Nebraska’s flat terrain.

Weather & Tourist Seasons

Nebraska’s rural western half experiences a more arid climate than the state’s more populated and more humid eastern half. However, precipitation and temperature both vary dramatically throughout the state. Winters are typically cold and snowy, while summers are hot (up to 40°C) with frequent thunderstorms. The state’s tornado season lasts from late spring to early autumn.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
