Situated just over four miles from Lincoln, the state of Nebraska’s second busiest airport serves as an access point to the state city as well as the rest of South Central Nebraska. Shuttle buses operate between the airport and Lincoln, as well as other cities in the state. Still, the most convenient and most recommended way to access the city and other Nebraska locations is with car hire in Lincoln Airport, with downtown Lincoln a 15-minute drive to the southeast.

Parking restrictions in the US are strictly enforced, with each state having different regulations. In general, vehicles parked in prohibited areas may be towed, with the driver paying a fine to retrieve their car. Curbs are colour coded according to their restrictions, with red, white and yellow indicating parking is prohibited, while green zones allow motorists to park for up to 30 minutes. Petrol stations are predominately self-serve and accept credit cards for payment, but UK visitors should check in advance that their UK-issued card will be accepted. There are toll routes throughout the country, with RDIF transponders used at automatic toll booths. Transponders can be provided by car hire companies on request.

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?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

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).
