Car hire excess insurance in Middlesbrough

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 Middlesbrough 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 Middlesbrough.

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 Middlesbrough car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Middlesbrough

  • Middlesbrough is tucked away in North Yorkshire, and although it grew up as an industrial city, it has entered a phase where it has once again become more picturesque. So it’s well worth hiring a car to get around if you’re visiting. You can immediately head outside the city centre and visit places like Roseberry Topping and Ormesby Hall. Then there’s one of the city’s biggest drawcards, the Captain Cook Birthplace Museum. This makes car hire in Middlesbrough a very good choice to give you maximum control over your own time and give you independence so that you’re not relying on local public transport schedules.
  • The airport you’ll arrive at when you’re flying to Middlesbrough is Teesside International Airport (MME), which is roughly 10 miles to the south-west of the city. Upon landing and after baggage claim, simply walk straight out of the terminal and take a 2-minute walk to the car park, where you can pick up the vehicle you’ve booked. It won’t take you long at all to drive the short distance into Middlesbrough itself.
  • Middlesbrough tends to be quite congested, so if you’re on a business trip and you’re travelling to or through the centre of town, then you can expect not only busy traffic, but also plenty of pedestrians. Keep an eye out even when you’re driving at slower speeds, especially where you’re not familiar with the road layouts and where the bicycle lanes and pedestrian crossings are. As in many modern cities, people will cross the road when it looks to be clear.
  • Rush hour in Middlesbrough comes around every day at the times we’re all used to. In the mornings, traffic peaks around 08:00 to 09:00 and swells again from 16:00 to 17:00. This doesn’t mean that it dies down immediately after that though, so steer clear of the busiest streets. Top among these are Acklam Road (the A1032) and Longlands Road (the A1085). Marton Road (the A172) is another road that can become tightly packed, particularly the north-bound lanes.

  • Given that so many of the busiest Teesside A roads are in Middlesbrough, it might be a good idea if you’re travelling alone to hire a compact car, or a saloon that’s similarly fuel-efficient if you’re with a couple of other people. For Middlesbrough car hire, you also want a vehicle that you can drive nimbly through the busier sections, especially when you need to respond to unexpected pedestrians. These will also easily take you to the nearby tourist attractions outside the city, as the roads are good and there’s no need to go off-roading to get to the rural ones either.

  • Middlesbrough is another UK city that has adopted 20mph zones, so expect to be slowed to by speed signs as you’re approaching these zones. The speed is rigidly enforced in these areas, and you’re sure to encounter speed cameras more often on some roads than others. These include The Avenue in Linthorpe, Trimdon Avenue in the suburb of Acklam, and Hall Drive, once again in Acklam. In the city centre outside these zones, you can revert to the standard 30mph speed.

  • When booking car hire in Middlesbrough, you can expect to budget around £1.17 per litre for petrol, on average. For the lower end of that scale, head to petrol stations like the Tesco Express in Dixon’s Bank, Sainsbury’s petrol station in Wilson Street, and the Tesco Extra at the Parkway Shopping Centre.

  • You can find free parking in Middlesbrough provided by the local council authorities. They’re limited to two parking areas, however – the one in Captain Cook Square and another in Ferry Road. Otherwise, there are plenty of pay-to-park zones in the city centre, such as Amber Street Car Park, where you’ll pay around £2 an hour.
