Expedia car hire in York comes with No Hidden Fees
Why rent a car in York?
Vast expanses of farmland, craggy natural landscapes and vineyards mean any visit to York in Nebraska should be accompanied by a hire car. There is plenty to see here, but it’s all very spread out. Fortunately, the roads are clear and straight and driving around here is a cinch.
The Platte river flows through the north of the city and offers pretty walks and opportunities for rowing and airboat trips. Locals have made the most of the space by building a number of pristine golf courses in the area, and the vineyards, including the Miletta Vista Winery about an hour away, are often open for tours.
During your stay head west of York by hire car to Recharge Lake where you can fish, swim and camp, or head east to the big cities of Omaha and Lincoln.
How to get to and around York?
Fly to Lincoln Airport, which is a 50-mile and 50-minute journey from York by rental car. Omaha Airport is 110 miles away, a drive of one hour and 40 minutes. If you are arriving by car the I-80 runs through York, linking it to Chicago in the east and San Francisco in the west.
What brands are available?
Alamo, Avis and National can all offer cheap car hire in York and have collection counters at Lincoln Airport.
Must-sees within an easy drive of York
Just north of the Platte river is Grand Island. Get a rental car in York and make the 50-mile, 50-minute journey to see this historic city. Edward Durell Stone’s Stuhr Building is an impressive piece of modern architecture and gives visitors an insight into local life and the history of the Nebraska prairie towns. And the Crane Trust nature centre is a great place to witness the spring migration of cranes and other birds, as well as preserving the flora and fauna of the river.
An hour’s drive east on the I-80 is Lincoln, a big city with plenty of opportunities for shopping and dining out. There is also an extensive system of walking and cycling trails around the city, which is a great way to explore. Wilderness Park is a beautiful patch of lush greenery where you can go horse riding, hiking and cycling.
Omaha is just northeast of Lincoln and about two hours by rental car from York (a journey of 100 miles). The Old Market district is the spot for independent shops and trendy bars. Street musicians keep things lively and the historic buildings that line the cobblestone streets now house cafes and jazz clubs. The photogenic Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge offers some great views of the city, and as you walk across you can step into the neighbouring state of Iowa.
