Car hire excess insurance in High Wycombe

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 High Wycombe 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 High Wycombe.

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 High Wycombe car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in High Wycombe

  • When you’re in Buckinghamshire, it’s a good idea to pre-book car hire in High Wycombe so that you will be able to plan your own itinerary and have the flexibility to visit any of the tourist attractions whenever you wish, stopping off whenever you like en route. This is a designated UK Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so waste no time in driving out to Chiltern Hills just outside the town. Here you’ll also find Hughenden Manor, erstwhile home of Benjamin Disraeli, and West Wycombe, where you can play a round at the Wycombe Heights Golf Centre.
  • High Wycombe lies to the north-west of London, so your closest airport is Heathrow. As the UK’s busiest airports, you won’t have any problem finding all the car hire services you need. To reach them, make your way to any of Terminals 2 to 5. You can finalise arrangements there and then take a free shuttle to get to your car. If you’re coming from Terminal 2 or 3, follow the directions to the central bus station. From Terminal 4 or 5 head to the main arrivals exit and you’ll see a shuttle service point right outside each. Once you’re ready to go with your car hire in High Wycombe, you can get acquainted with the vehicle on the 17-mile drive from Heathrow to the town itself.
  • Given High Wycombe’s proximity to London, it serves as a commuter town, which means that there is a lot of incoming and outgoing traffic on the main roads like the M25. There are also several business parks here, giving it the typical profile of a commercial town – in other words, the centre of town can get busy. So explore this area during quieter times of the day, like late morning or early afternoon. When the town centre gets busy, use that time to visit the attractions further afield, but take the back roads to avoid the main commuter arterials.
  • Rush hours in High Wycombe begin to build from around 07:00 as commuters make their way to the capital city or head for the commercial centre of High Wycombe itself. The congestion is at its peak at around 08:00. The pattern repeats from approximately 16:00 to 17:00 in the afternoons. Avoid getting entangled in traffic at the crossroads of Cressex Link Road and Cressex Road, and the north end of Desborough Avenue where it intersects with Lancaster Road and again where it meets Marlow Road.
