Car hire excess insurance in Crawley

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 Crawley 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 Crawley.

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 Crawley car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Crawley

  • With its proximity to London Gatwick Airport, a car hire in Crawley is a flexible and convenient way to discover this charming town and the surrounding West Sussex countryside. Buchan Country Park to the southwest boasts a sculpture trail and teems with wildlife, while nearby Tilgate Park has a lake where you can rent a paddleboat, kayak or canoe. The coastal town of Hastings is a 54-mile drive away and is a great place for an afternoon excursion with your family, significant other or just by yourself.
  • At London Gatwick Airport, you can find many of the major hired car companies so you should have no problem getting a car hire in Crawley. If you’re arriving at the Gatwick’s North Terminal, the Car Hire Village is located on the Ground Floor of the Arrivals Hall opposite WH Smith. When arriving at the South Terminal, follow the exit directions to the collection point where a complimentary shuttle will transfer you to North Terminal where you can pick up your car.
  • The town of Crawley is adjacent to a major international airport rendering it susceptible to traffic congestion during the morning and evening rush hours and possible also during the afternoon lunch period. Driving around the inner heart of the town like elsewhere, be vigilant of motorcycles, bike riders and pedestrians moving to and fro. Sat navs can provide alternate travel routes to escape gridlocked areas so you can keep to schedule and avoid getting lost.
  • The morning rush is heaviest between 07:00 and 09:00, so if you intend to be on the road make sure you’re clear of the A2011/Crawley Avenue ring road during this period.  You may also experience tie-ups driving your Crawley car hire along the M23 or the A264 during the evening rush hours of 18:00-20:00 while High Street along with College Road and Ifield Road may experience sluggish vehicular traffic during the 13:00-15:00 lunch period.

  • The best kind of Crawley car hire for negotiating the busy street downtown depends on the number of passengers, personal choice and utility. Solo drivers and duos tend to opt for smart compacts or economy cars, which are highly manoeuvrable and easier to park whereas an intermediate, full size or passenger van holds more passengers but may be less fuel efficient.

  • Unless otherwise indicated, if you’re driving between 20mph and 30mph you should avoid having any difficulties with authorities or traffic surveillance equipment inside the town limits. Single carriageway roads like the A2004 and the A2219 generally allow for a maximum of 50mph unless flowing through restricted or populated areas. The M23 has a cruising speed of 70mph, but you should always keep an eye out for posted signs indicating speed changes to be safe.

  • The average price for petrol in Crawley is about £1.19 per litre and the average price for diesel is about £1.23 per litre and this may affect your Crawley car hire choice in terms of your budget, so keep a bit extra in your pocket in case you take a few unexpected road trips. Also, be advised that there are few petrol stations in Crawley so make the most of any opportunities to fill up and avoid running on empty.

  • In Crawley, on-street parking is metered and most of them accept cash, credit/debit cards or mobile payments. Crawley Town Council operates several pay and display parking garages where you can park your vehicle and rates vary, from as low as £1 to £1.50 per hour. These garages tend to be free after normal business hours which also vary, but if you stay anywhere between 20:00 and 21:00 you’ll stay on the right side of the law.
