Very convenient pickup and drop-off. Drop-off was literally right outside the terminal. In addition I was upgraded without asking!

The guy at the counter was very proficient and helpful. I appreciate that as I've rented from other agencies with people who couldn't care less.Car wasn't cleaned all that well.

When dropping off car unable to return keys at the same time as the car. This was due to the drop box for the keys being duct taped shut, and no one being present at the time the car was returned.

i booked a compact through kayak at $48.18. when i went to pick up the car 15 minutes later, they said they didn't have a compact and i had to pay nearly double to get a different car since i couldn't wait nearly 3 hours for a compact to be returned. If i was able to book at compact, one should have been available or Avis should have honored the price.

The fact I couldn't pay for it and have a 2nd driver pick it up was absolute BS.

The check-out person knew exactly who I was even as I stepped in. He had the car ready for me and the whole thing took just 2 minutes.

The car was very clean and comfortable.The Hertz agent was not available when I arrived to pick up the vehicle, and when she finally came to the front desk, she did not print a lease agreement or show me to the car; I had to walk across the street and find it myself.

They called me 20 minutes before my scheduled rental with no car and no solution. Leaving me scrambling to try to find transport. They had known for over 24 hours that they wouldn’t have a vehicle but decided to wait until the last minute. Then were not apologetic.Everything. Absolutely terrible experience.

Overall great service. Very easy pickup and drop off.Only thing I can think of was that there was some kind of goopy glue on the inside of the windshield.
8.8 Excellent2018 Dec 07
Great experienceI had a very good experience with Enterprise. I had needed a ride to get the rental. They came and picked me up for no extra charge. Everything went smooth at the office. Also returning the vehicle was exceptionally easy and painless. Would recommend and use them again.

Better customer service. Better expressing the importance of the information needed to rent. Better pricing. Up front about hidden fees.

Car not ready when come to pickupLocationShow up at 7 AM but the Van was not ready, had to wait for transfer from other location. What a joke.
2.0 Mediocre2017 Jun 27
Rented to someone elseWas unable to rent the car due to being unaware of 2 hour window to pick up car- the car was rented to someone else when I went to pick it up. I received a call the week prior to confirm the rental- I would have appreciated a heads up or a call to verify my rental before it was given to someone else. Customer should be made aware of this 2 hour rule at time of reservation!

Car rental insurance in Lincoln

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Lincoln car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Lincoln.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Lincoln car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Lincoln

  • If you plan to visit Nebraska, you should consider the advantages of car rentals in Lincoln. While the city does have some public transportation, using a rental allows for much more freedom in your schedule. When you rent a car in Lincoln, you can visit locations that public transportation cannot. For example, Lincoln has some beautiful lakes and other scenic areas outside of the city. Use your rental car to visit locations like Holmes Lake or Pawnee Lake. Or see other historical sites like the Nine-Mile Prairie Historical Marker. Without a rental car, visitors would be hard-pressed to reach Capital View Winery and Vineyards. A Lincoln car rental can add a lot of depth and freedom to your visit.
  • As you consider your options for car rentals in Lincoln, know that the airport is probably the most convenient place to get your rental. You will find all rental car companies inside the Lincoln Airport terminal, including Budget, Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz. The rental lots are on-site, and renters do not require other transportation to get to their rental car. As you arrive in Lincoln, you can conveniently stop by the rental company of your choice and walk out to your rental straight from the terminal.
  • Lincoln’s rush hour runs between around 6:30am and 9:30am and then later between 4pm and 7pm. Several areas of town should be avoided during rush hour. One place is the roadways around Nebraska University. Salt Creek Roadway and the on and off-ramps of highway 34 can get incredibly congested as well. Other areas of the downtown district can be problematic during rush hour and should be avoided if possible. During the mild weather months, drivers should take care to watch for pedestrians and cyclists. This is especially true of the areas around campus.
  • Lincoln is a city that has white winters. Therefore, visitors that rent cars should be aware that the winter months can have some snowy driving conditions. Drivers who are not used to driving in snow should be cautious, go slow, and always ensure they leave plenty of space between themselves and the car in front of them.
  • Book your rental car in Lincoln at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Lincoln are around 61% cheaper than other car types, on average
