Car hire excess insurance in Lancaster

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 Lancaster 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 Lancaster.

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 Lancaster car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Lancaster

  • The historic city of Lancaster in the northwest of England has plenty to offer and can be conveniently experienced by car. Many car hire companies in Lancaster are located in the city centre, offering close access to attractions such as the 12th-century Lancaster Castle and Williamson Park. However, with car hire in Lancaster you can see more of what the area has to offer by driving out to Warton Old Rectory (9 miles), a ruin of historical importance, or spending a day by the seaside in nearby Morecambe (8 miles).
  • Lancaster is situated less than 50 miles from three major British airports: Liverpool (LPL), 47 miles away, Leeds Bradford (LBA), also 47 miles away, and Manchester (MAN), 49 miles away. For this reason, it’s a great location for hiring a car as you can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the area while also having access to numerous international travel options. Car hire companies are located in the Arrivals terminal of all three airports, so picking up your car will be no stress.
  • The first thing new drivers in Lancaster should be made aware of is the large student population in the city. While this adds a vibrant and energetic atmosphere to the surrounding areas, it also means some neighbourhoods have many pedestrians and it is important to be careful. Venture further away from the city, however, and you will enjoy some of the most scenic drives available anywhere in the UK.
  • Lancaster is based in the north of England, meaning that it not only enjoys picturesque scenery but also bitterly cold winters. From October until February, you can expect severe conditions including ice and snow, so be prepared and take your time on tricky roads. As with the rest of the UK, the morning (08:00 to 10:00) and afternoon (17:00 to 19:00) rush hours are when the roads are busiest, so a good idea is to try to avoid planning journeys around these times.

However, you can find petrol for as little as £1.16 per litre or as much as £1.27 around the city, so don’t be afraid to shop around for the best price. There are plenty of independent petrol stations available but, if in doubt, head to one of Lancaster’s major supermarkets which tend to have an on-site facility for fuelling up.

  • Lancaster City Council maintains an updated list of car parking locations in and around the city, which is well worth a look at while planning your journey. Be aware that car parks are either classified as short-stay or long-stay. While prices begin at around £1.50 for the first hour in both, they can be quite different if you are planning to park your car for between 12h and 24h.
