Some Redditch 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 Redditch.

Redditch is a relatively new town in the UK, so it doesn’t have lots of narrow, cobbled roads to be mindful of. Nevertheless, a compact economy vehicle may suit travelling along the occasional residential street lined with parked cars. A larger saloon or SUV is better for longer trips on motorways or if the whole family is coming along for the ride with you.
The speed limit in the centre of Redditch is usually 30mph, apart from roads near schools, which are reduced to 20mph. There are stretches of road on the outskirts of town, such as on the A441, where a 30mph speed limit applies, so look out for signs and speed cameras that can be common along these kinds of roads. On motorways like the M5, the limit is set to 70mph unless signposted otherwise.
The average price of fuel in Redditch is around £1.14 per litre. Supermarket petrol stations like the Tesco at the cloverleaf interchange or the Morrisons on Clearwell Road tend to offer slightly lower prices. There are plenty of places to fill up around Birmingham airport before you drop you hire car off, although be prepared to pay a little more at these locations.
It’s not so hard to find a parking spot in the centre of Redditch and the prices are fairly reasonable. The car park at Kingfisher Centre is right in the middle of town and costs around £1.50 per hour. On the edge of town, you can find parking for around £1.20 per hour at Ipsley Street and it’s only a short walk (10-15min) into the centre.
