KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Lincoln

  • Historic Lincoln is a city famed for its rich Roman and Norman heritage, each having left potent evidence strewn across its landscape. Only with a car hire in Lincoln are you truly able to discover these ancient gems, especially those further afield. The East Midlands region is chock full of history, with much to uncover for the eager motorist. The city of Nottingham is 40 miles away via the A1 south, while the city of Sheffield lies 56 miles to the west along the A1. Perhaps you may prefer the charm of coastal town of King’s Lynn which is 52 miles south via the A17/A52.
  • Humberside Airport (HUY) is not a major one, but it’s the only airport in the county and only 32 miles away from downtown Lincoln via the A15. Avis and Europcar are two international providers at the airport, where you can obtain a hire car in Lincoln. The airport’s Car Hire Centre is located on the Ground Floor of the Arrival Hall, so just follow the signs.
  • Approx. 15,000 students attend the University of Lincoln situated just across the Brayford Pool from the city centre. For this reason alone, you should anticipate a heavy pedestrian footprint along with a generous amount of bicycles and motorcycles around the city centre area. The "hub" created where the A1434 connects with Pelham, Melville and Oxford Streets may be a danger zone during the morning/evening rush The B1308 (West Parade) is a major artery through the centre of town and could also experience delays along certain stretches.
  • The lifeblood of Lincoln is sustained in large part by its massive public administration programme and the tourist industry. This is a busy city on the go, so be prepared for a few issues with traffic from 7:00–9:00 across all areas of town, as well as all major outbound motorways A1434). An active afternoon period from 13:00–15:00 should also be expected, especially near the university. The A1434 hub once again becomes a key sticking point when residents make their way home, so the 17:00-19:00 period could be another long journey. Heavy traffic means active speed surveillance, so be vigilant whenever you’re on the road.
  • Book your rental car in Lincoln at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Lincoln are around 77% more expensive than other car types, on average
