Car hire excess insurance in Dartford

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 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.

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 Dartford car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Dartford

  • Dartford is known around the UK for being a connecting point for much of the South-East, which is why it makes an ideal location for arranging a hire vehicle. Whether you are planning on staying local, travelling on the famous Crossing, making your way into London (around 25 miles away), or taking a trip to the tranquil RSPB Rainham Marshes (around 7 miles away), car hire in Dartford is a great start to your trip.
  • Dartford is served by the nearby London City Airport, its own railway station, and the A282 motorway, meaning that your car hire in Dartford can easily integrate with the rest of your journey. From LCY airport, you can find car hire desks in the main Arrivals terminal. In Dartford itself, most hire car firms are located in or close to Temple Hill, the same neighbourhood as Dartford railway station, so you can be sure you’re in the right place with Dartford car hire.
  • Dartford is a residential town that sits close to some of the UK’s most important motorways. That’s why it’s important to always be alert when driving around the area, as it is easy to quickly transition from a dual carriageway to quieter streets with plenty of pedestrians. The town itself, however, is easy to get around and is preferred by commuters for this precise reason.
  • Due to the convenience of the nearby Dartford Crossing, this Kent town certainly receives a fair bit of traffic throughout the week. For that reason, try and plan your journeys outside of commuting hours (08:00–09:00, 16:00–18:00) and also expect a fair bit of congestion at weekends when plenty of families head out on day-trips. Sunny weekends create more traffic and snowy weather creates more difficult conditions, so be aware.

  • The first question to ask is why are you staying in the area? If you are planning on staying local, a compact economy car is a great option, allowing you to navigate urban areas and park up with ease. 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. The average price of petrol, which in Darford sits around £1.22/litre, rises significantly the closer you get to these major roads, so try and plan your journey so that you can fill up beforehand. For more competitive prices, head into the heart of Dartford: Princes Road, which connects the Bluewater shopping centre with the nearby town of Crayford, has a number of petrol stations which offer prices in line with the UK average.

  • Working with Kent County Council, Dartford Borough Council has provided a number of options for drivers to park up safely and affordably. You will be able to find a number of pay and display car parks and on-street bays, with information on how to pay for your parking being available at these sites. They also maintain the Civic Centre Car Park, which is open to the public and barrier-controlled for added security. Prices generally start from just £1 for 2h , and many car parks offer free parking on Sundays.
