KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Lincoln

  • When you visit Lincoln, California, car rentals in Lincoln are an excellent choice that’ll guarantee you have a positive experience. Unlike rigidly scheduled public transportation, rental cars in Lincoln provide convenience and flexibility, allowing you to effortlessly explore the city’s attractions and the popular sites in surrounding areas. With a Lincoln car rental, you can venture beyond the immediate vicinity and discover more of what the region offers. With car rentals in Lincoln, you can easily visit famous places like the Thunder Valley Casino Resort and the Lincoln Hills Golf Club.
  • When you fly to Lincoln, you’ll likely land at Sacramento International Airport (SMF), which is approximately 33 miles from Lincoln by road. Rental-car companies at Sacramento International Airport can be found at the rental-car terminal on the airport premises. The rental-car shuttle, operating on airport property, stops at designated locations on the ground level outside both terminals at approximately 10-minute intervals. You can also make a reservation for the rental car you want on the airport’s website before your flight.
  • When driving car rentals in Lincoln, planning your trips is essential if you want to navigate the city efficiently. Familiarize yourself with major roads and landmarks to help with navigation. Pay attention to one-way streets and follow traffic flow accordingly. Be aware of cyclists and give them sufficient space on the roads. Stay updated on road closures or construction work that might affect your car trips. Consider using navigation apps or GPS to assist you with directions.
  • Just like driving in many cities and towns, you should expect heavy traffic at certain hours of the day, which might make it difficult to drive in the city. The morning rush hour in Lincoln lasts from about 7 am to 10 am, while the afternoon rush hour is from about 4 pm to 7 pm. If driving during peak hours is unavoidable, you should still try to minimize your time driving through high-traffic areas, such as Lincoln Boulevard.
  • Book your car hire in Lincoln at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Lincoln are around 23% more expensive than other car types, on average

Cons:

I went to the Lincoln, CA location to pick up my car as I had reserved. instead of a compact car, I was told the only vehicle available was a F-150 4 door 4x4 truck. I told the clerk that I would not be able to park this vehicle in the city and I did not want to pay for the extra fuel. I was sent two cities away to Roseville, CA and all they had was a full size Charger. I was not happy, however I did not have a choice. The sales tax was higher in Roseville, so I had to pay more than quoted. I don't understand why I had to drive so far to get the vehicle and still could not rent the vehicle I reserved and had to pay a higher price too.

They didn't show me how to operate the vehicle [a VW Bug]. I couldn't figure out how to start it. When I tried loading my belongings to leave for airport I couldn't open the trunk, couldn't move the seats forward [to place bags in rear]. In the end I had to drive with my luggage on top of me in the two front seats. Crazee.

We were given a car that had a bad wheelbearing and they refused to replace the car. They didn't honor the second driver added and gave her a bad time even though she had all the paperwork on her. It took several calls and days for us to get a new car. This made the trip longer, ran into weather and had to pay them more money to extend the rental. It is a huge safety issue and most of the people we spoke to at Hertz was very lackadaisical. Would any of them let a loved one drive a car like that? The sound it made couldn't even be drowned out with the radio. There were a couple employees that I got that went above what they could. Roadside couldn't even get a car replaced for us because management wouldn't approve it. It was just absurd. I will never use Hertz or one of their other companies again knowing that they do not care about their clients safety. Ordering through Kayak was easy and great.

Pros:

Drop off was easy.

Cons:

Staff wasn’t very friendly, complained that we weren’t sharp on time and she said she hoped she still had a car left for us although we had already paid. Proceeded to act surprise that there was a car left and didn’t even say which model or if same size that we had paid for. No information regarding vehicle and then said they would need to clean it now. Was a very quick clean. Probably not up to current standards. Also if cars are just standing around, wouldn’t they have had time to clean them?
