Car hire excess insurance in Grimsby

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 Grimsby 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 Grimsby.

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 Grimsby car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Grimsby

  • When you’re in Lincolnshire and looking for a car hire in Grimsby, you can do so through KAYAK and have the freedom to roam the town and more of the county. In the fifties, the town held the honour of being the world’s largest dedicated fishing port, so many of the attractions in the town are related to this industry, like the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre and the Grimsby Dock Tower. You can also drive to the Humber Estuary edge of town, where you’ll find Cleethorpes Country Park and the celebrated Cleethorpes Pier.
  • Getting to the city by air is a matter of landing at Humberside Airport, which is a 12-mile drive away once you’ve finished sorting out your Grimsby car hire. The major operators like Hertz and Avis can be found right inside the arrivals hall of the terminal building as you walk out having collected your luggage from the carousel. You can take the 5-minute walk across to the hire car parking lot by turning left as you exit the terminal and following the main access road through the airport.
  • Driving in Grimsby is much the same as it is in any typical UK coastal city, in that you can expect both seasonal traffic and daily commercial traffic. So be prepared for a near constant flow of a cross-section of vehicles and plenty of pedestrians. There are also cyclists about so as a rule of thumb you should drive carefully. The locals are very friendly, so don’t hesitate to ask for directions if you’re unsure of exactly how to get to your destination.
  • Try not to get caught up in rush hour traffic in Grimsby as some of the roads can very clogged up during these times of day. This small city can be busy in the mornings, as the congestion peaks between 08:00 and 09:00, with peak evening rush hour from 16:00 till around 17:00. In particular, these are Peaks Parkway, especially accessing it from Welholme Road, Cleethorpes Road, and the A180 Grimsby Road between Blundell Avenue and Tiverton Street. Rather take smaller roads like Ellis Way and Freeman Street.

  • Traffic is again your main concern when deciding on what type of car hire in Grimsby you should book. You’ll likely be spending quite a bit of time in the centre of town, as it’s where all the best venues are, in which case try to stick to as small a car as you can, depending on how many people you’re travelling with. If you’re alone, or visiting as a couple, then a small city will be all you’ll need. If there are more of you, or you’re travelling to Grimsby with your family, then get an MPV that fits you all in cosily, without being extravagant about space. The least bulky vehicle you can book, the better.

  • Speeding is taken very seriously by the local constabulary, so make sure you pay attention to the speed limit signs and adhere to them. In the centre of town you’ll be driving at 30mph in most areas, but be aware of the 20mph zones, such as Littlefield Lane. Further out and on the dual carriageways you can travel at up to 50mph.

  • You can expect to pay an average price of around £1.26 per litre in Grimsby, and it’s well worth shopping around a bit to find petrol stations that offer prices on the lower end of that. Try the Morrisons in Hillmore Road or the Sainsbury’s in Corporation Road. Independents include Rix on Barnoldby Road and the WCF on Tetney Road.

  • A good bet for free parking in the centre of town is on Burgess Street. From there it’s a 7-minute walk to the main shopping areas. Closer in you’ll find Freshney Place East and Abbey Walk. The most centrally-placed car park is on Victoria Street, within a 4-minute walk to the city centre, and will cost around £1.80 for 2h.
