Normally, to rent a car in Lincoln you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. If you are under 25, you might also need to pay a surcharge. Be sure to read the terms to determine any additional fees will be before you reserve your rental.
Does Lincoln require rental car insurance?
When driving around Lincoln or the rest of the U.S. of A., you'll need insurance. Many suppliers require that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your car. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary insurance through the rental supplier. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What is the difference between all the fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to search for a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||You'll have a full tank when you collect your car. You can use as much fuel as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling cost||You only need to replace the fuel you used. Used a quarter of a tank? Then you just fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any fuel you didn't use. You can fill up at any station you want and you'll only be charged refueling fees or service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You pay for a full tank of gas when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Ask the rental car provider to see if they'll refund you for any unused fuel||There will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you bring back the car||The supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You won't have a full tank when you collect the vehicle, and you won't need to refill the gas before you bring the car back||You fill the tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station as soon as you collect the car|
What fuel policy should I get?
We usually suggest that customers choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Lincoln?
If you wish to check out all that Lincoln and maybe even the rest of Missouri offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Read the fine print to be sure your mileage is actually "unlimited."
Before you drive off
Before you begin on your Lincoln vacation, go over a few things before you leave the rental lot. It's worth the time to:
- Look over the vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
