3.6 Mediocre21 Jul 2019
Reasonably pricedAt pick up I was told there was no damage to the vehicle, but upon my inspection I found scratches and paint chips which I showed to the manager. The damage was then documented, but this raises concerns that lax oversight will lead to false damage claims for the renter. Scamming going on?

Car hire excess insurance in Oxford

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 Oxford 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 Oxford.

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 Oxford car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Oxford

  • As a visitor to Oxford, renting a car means that you don't have to restrict your sightseeing to the city center. Although there are several options for public transport around the city, they can be expensive and fail to give you the same freedom as a car. There are plenty of places to be discovered across the city and beyond with a car, like the University Museum of Natural History and Bicester Village.
  • Excited to rent a car on your visit to Oxford? If you are landing at London Oxford Airport you will find only one car hire company based on-site. You will find its car hire office located in Building 34, opposite the Terminal entrance, which is a few meters away. You can also arrange a pick-up from other local off-site car hire companies.
  • Travelers new to the UK should remember to drive on the left. When you enter a divided highway or motorway, you must keep to the left-hand lane unless you’re passing. Roundabouts are very common on UK roads, especially in and around Oxford. The traffic will flow in a clockwise direction around roundabouts, so you must give way to traffic approaching from your right.
  • The morning rush hour in Oxford begins around 7:00 am until 10:00 am and again in the evening from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. On Sundays and bank holidays, traffic is much heavier on the roads. If possible, it’s best to avoid the M40 motorway, especially going towards London, on weekdays as it’s often congested at rush hour.
