Location information for Minneapolis

Introduction

Minneapolis isn't Minnesota's capital, that would be the adjoining St. Paul. Together they are known as Twin Cities. The name Minneapolis is derived from the Indian word 'minne' (meaning 'lake') and the Greek word for 'city'. Minneapolis therefore means: City of Lakes, which refers to the more than twenty natural lakes surrounding the city.

Population

Almost 400,000 people live in Minneapolis making it the largest city of the American state of Minnesota.

Location

Minneapolis is located in the north of the United States, where the Minnehaha Creek discharges into the Mississippi. Many lakes surround the city; some jewels are those that form a chain: Cedar, Isles, Calhoun, Harriet and Nokomis.

Economy

Minneapolis isn't only known as the City of Lakes but also as Mill City. The city grew around milling and processing grain from the Great Plains. There's also medical industry and a large number of financial corporations are based in Minneapolis. The city also has the largest shopping center of the United States, the Mall of America. Approximately 45,000 students live in the Twin Cities, attending the University of Minnesota.

Airports

Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport is situated 11 kilometers south of the city center. It's easily reachable by rental car as it's surrounded by freeways: State Highway 5, I-494, State Highway 77 and State Highway 62. From the city center the I-35W leads to the airport; the way is clearly signposted.

Public Transport

The city has an extensive system of city buses, but for a newcomer the schedule can be confusing. It's also not always indicated which buses stop where and where they go. It'll help to study the map well (available in buses and at many government institutions). There's also a light-rail line from the center to the airport.

Traffic and Parking

It's not difficult to find your way around Minneapolis and there are several parking garages in the center where you can park your rental car. Locations are signposted. Winters in this northern American city are severe and affect the roads. Especially in spring you need to watch out for potholes in the roads. The city council repairs the roads as quickly as possible, but can of course not be everywhere at once.

Hotels

Minneapolis has a good and varied choice of accommodations. Most hotels are found Downtown, but there are also accommodations (mainly midrange) near the university grounds. Backpackers will have a harder time finding a suitable room; there's only one backpacker's hostel, near the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
