KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in South Croydon

  • Car hire in South Croydon provides several advantages over other modes of transport in the area. Unlike relying on public transport schedules, having a car allows you to conveniently explore the surrounding attractions, like Boxpark Croydon or Addington Hills Viewing Platform. It offers the flexibility to customise your itinerary and reach destinations at your own pace. Moreover, with South Croydon car hire, you can easily access nearby areas like the scenic Surrey Hills or venture into central London without relying solely on train services.
  • Choosing car hire in South Croydon at a nearby airport offers convenience and ease of travel. At London Gatwick Airport (LGW), car hire offices are in the dedicated Car Rental area next to the South Terminal. Follow the signs directing you to the Car Rental area after leaving Baggage Claim. For London Heathrow Airport (LHR), the car hire desks are in the Arrivals Hall of each terminal. After exiting Customs, follow the signs to the appropriate terminal's car hire desks.
  • When driving in South Croydon, note the local traffic patterns and road conditions. The town has its fair share of narrow streets and busy intersections, especially around High Street and Brighton Road. Keep an eye out for pedestrians crossing the road and cyclists sharing the lanes. Be mindful of on-street parking regulations and restrictions to avoid any penalties. Familiarise yourself with the town's parking zones and pay attention to the signage to ensure a smooth and hassle-free experience.
  • When driving in South Croydon, take note of peak traffic hours to avoid potential delays. Rush hour in the area typically occurs from 07:30 to 09:00 and 16:30 to 18:00. Roads like Brighton Road and London Road may experience heavier traffic between these hours. During winter, certain areas around South Croydon, particularly in nearby hilly regions like the North Downs, may experience challenging driving conditions due to snowfall or icy patches. Exercise caution and check weather forecasts and road conditions during winter.

Car had pre-existing damage and was due a service. The model ( Vauxhall Crossland) delivered a poor driving experience, particularly with harsh clutch and road noise. We were very much left with the impression that as a one way rental this car was nearing the end of its hire car life and heading for auction. Staff at pick up and return were courteous and friendly .

Car hire insurance in South Croydon

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some South Croydon car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in South Croydon.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your South Croydon car hire.
