Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Basingstoke 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 Basingstoke.

It will pay off to book a smaller model of car for your Basingstoke car hire needs, something you’ll soon appreciate once you enter the town’s traffic and find that it’s so much easier than it would be in something like a large saloon. Tailor your choices, and only hire as much car as you need, so to speak. If you’re visiting as a family, look for a compact MPV, and if you’re on your own or visiting with a friend, you’ll not need anything larger than a nippy little city car. This will also pay off for you in terms of fuel economy.
