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 Bradford 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 Bradford.
Keep in mind that car hire excess 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 Bradford car rental.

As with so many smaller cities in the UK, it’s recommended to opt for the most compact and fuel-efficient city models if you intend to stay in or explore the centre of town. Bradford has a busy business district, so if you’re visiting for these purposes then you may want to upgrade to a sedan, but try to keep it as small as you can. The surrounding areas of Bradford are easy to get around, so if you want to explore more of the Leeds area then you can book a wide variety of different vehicles, including MPVs, sedans, luxury models and 4x4s, which are very appropriate choices.
Bradford has joined many UK cities in lowering its speed limit to 20mph in the central areas. Otherwise you can expect the standard 30mph within the broader city itself. Further afield, you can travel up to 70mph on the motorways. Look out for speed cameras in specific areas, such as near schools and particularly where pedestrians and cars mingle. These are signposted shortly in advance, so pay attention when you see the signs.
When considering your choice of car hire in Bradford, take into account that the cost of petrol can often be a bit lower than in the larger urban areas of the UK.

For good prices, head to the Morrisons petrol stations on Mayo Avenue and Bradford Road, as well as the independents, such as the one on Whitehall Road East.
Bradford City Council provides a number of car parks in the city – look for them in Britannia Street, Simes Street and Crown Court, among other sites. Parking charges are very reasonable, ranging from £0.70 per hour up to £4 for anything over 4h.
