Car rental insurance in Birkenhead

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Birkenhead car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver in the rental price, but not all of them do. We recommend to always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in in Birkenhead.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Birkenhead car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Birkenhead

  • Although its proximity to Liverpool offers railway and bus links connecting the two locations, a car hire in Birkenhead offers drivers increased mobility and versatility to discover the town, the Wirral district and the greater Merseyside region. Wallasey Beach (5 miles) and Thurston Beach (7.5 miles) are prime summer spots for a swim and stroll, while the medieval city of Chester with its Roman fortifications is about 19 miles south via the M53.
  • Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LPL) is ideally situated for a Birkenhead car hire opportunity as it’s a mere 3 miles from the town. Avis, Europcar and Enterprise are the companies operating there and the airport’s Car Hire Centre is easy to locate once you arrive. For directions, exit the terminal building and proceed directly across the street to the Short Stay or Express Drop-Off and Pick-Up Car Park where the centre is located on the Ground Floor.
  • Birkenhead is not a large town, but it is served by a good network of highways like the ring road that includes portion of the A552, A554 and the M53 motorway. You can expect this major artery to experience some congestion during any rush hour period, especially the stretch of A554 that leads into a roundabout with Chester Street not far from the Woodside Pier. The Kingsway and Queensway Tunnels that funnel traffic to and from Liverpool are also prime targets for gridlock during rush hours. Keep an eye out for passing cyclists, motorbike riders and pedestrians dashing to get to work.
  • Residents of port towns/cities tend to be early risers and hit the road sooner than most. As such, if you expect to use one of the tunnels in the morning, it’s preferable to be on your way before the 07:00-08:00 hour when vehicular traffic is thickest. The ring road could stay busy through 09:00, so if you can afford the wait you might make better time driving out of town. Evening congestion is heaviest around 19:00 and could remain that way until at least 21:00, especially through the tunnels and streets near the Birkenhead Docks.
