Car hire excess insurance in Bradford

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

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.

Deductible

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.

Top tips for renting a car in Bradford

  • There are plenty of good reasons to opt for car hire in Bradford rather than relying on public transport. Chief among them are the flexibility and independence you’ll gain to explore the city on your own schedule. You can drive out on a whim to visit Ilkley, the oldest historical site in the area. The wonderful 17th-century manor house of East Riddlesden Hall is close by too, as is Cartwright Hall. You can also take a short drive to one of the oldest buildings in the city, Bolling Hall, which dates all the way back to the 14th century.
  • Getting to Bradford by air means you will land at Leeds–Bradford Airport. It’s about 6.5 miles away from the town, so it won’t take you long to get there. You can collect your Bradford car hire right at the airport. Book your choice of vehicle from a range of well-known brands through KAYAK and then, when you arrive, head to the car hire centre. You will find it on the east side of the main terminal building, only a short walk away from Arrivals. Once there, simply look for the signage of the brand you’ve booked, be it Avis, Europcar, Hertz or any other you have chosen.
  • You’ll need to be very aware of both vehicle and pedestrian traffic in Bradford. Although it’s not the biggest city in West Yorkshire, it nonetheless requires consideration when you’re driving. Watch out for the traffic on the Leeds Road into Bradford in particular, as there are many smaller side streets that can be obscured. On Midland Road be aware of faster traffic that can sometimes come up behind you without warning.
  • Rush hours have become increasingly busy over the years here, so be aware of the time of day when you are planning to visit the tourist attractions. It’s best to plan activities that don’t involve driving through the city centre around 08:00 and from roughly 16:00 to 17:00. The M62 Westbound in particular can get very busy.

  • 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. The average price is just over £1.16 per litre, which is very reasonable by comparison. 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.
