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 Southend-on-Sea 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 Southend-on-Sea.
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 Southend-on-Sea car rental.

The type of car you choose to hire for your Southend experience will ultimately come down to what your itinerary looks like. With central Southend being more congested with smaller parking options, you may want to look at a compact city vehicle or an economy car that will assist when negotiating traffic. If you have plans to take to the surrounding coastal towns or countryside, a comfy 4x4 will serve you well, particularly in a larger group.
Due to high foot-traffic in many parts of Southend, the speed limit is particularly well monitored by authorities. On average limits are 20mph in the city centre, beach fronts and residential suburbs. In other areas the speed limit rises to 40mph, with motorways allowing 60 and 70mph. Southend has almost 20 traffic cameras dispersed around key sites in the city centre, so it is advisable to look out for traffic signs at all times.
With major petrol companies such as BP, Shell, Texaco and Esso having a presence in Southend, you can conveniently fill up in many spots around the city centre. The average petrol price is £1.21 per litre, but ensure you check how many miles you can get to the tank on your car hire in Southend before embarking on a long trip.
With so many public walking areas and seaside attractions, Southend’s street parking near the beaches is usually very congested. It is advisable to look for public car parks close by or in the city centre that have very reasonable prices, depending on parking duration and days. Tickets range from £2 to around £18.
