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 Dartford 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 Dartford.
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 Dartford car rental.

If you are thinking of taking advantage of Dartford’s fantastic motorway links, then a more powerful car will be better suited to the job and also offer more comfort on longer journeys.
The centre of Dartford mostly implements a 30mph speed limit, although there are plenty of 20mph zones being introduced for quieter areas. Always drive responsibly and stay alert to your surroundings, particularly residential and school areas. It is also important to note that many motorways nearby use variable speed limits, so pay attention to road signs as these can be updated depending on current congestion.
Regular commuters will know that fuelling up near motorways is not always the most economic option.
