Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Lincoln?
When driving in Lincoln or the rest of the U.S.A., you will need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the U.S. of A. Moreover, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Many major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some coverage, however, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.You will have to find a gas station close to the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you pick up your vehicle. You can use as much fuel as you need and top it off when you return your car when you are done. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only need to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service charges if you don't refill the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pay for a full tank of fuel and return the car with the tank empty. Ask the provider to see if they will refund you for any unused fuel||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||You might pay a higher rate for the tank than you would filling up at a local gas station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't have to fill the tank back up before you drop it back off||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
Most suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We recommend returning it with a full tank. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before bringing the vehicle.
Is it worth getting unlimited miles?
Unlimited miles is a great choice if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Lincoln. You can drive as much as you like without incurring added charges. Go over your policy to see if there are any restrictions.
Tips before you leave the lot
Be sure you check a few items before you leave the car rental lot on your Lincoln adventure. You should:

- Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
