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 Swansea 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 Swansea.
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 Swansea car rental.

There is a 20mph speed limit along Swansea High Street and other districts within thriving commercial and institutional areas, but outside these precincts, the national speed limit of 30mph should be applied. On primary roads like the A4067 and A483, speeds of between 40mph and 50mph are allowed and if you make it out to the M4 the limit increases to 70mph. CCTV and traffic cameras are always in use along busy highways and at junctions, so drive with care and observe the stated limits whenever possible.

Swansea Council operates several parking schemes including on-street parking, city centre car parks inclusive of multi-storey facilities and recreational parking, to name a few. On-street parking is subject to limits on time (maximum 2h) and operates on a pay-and-display basis, where the rate is £0.50 per 30min interval. The tariffs at city centre parking garages vary according to location but typically range between £1.20 and £1.50 per hour, which is similar to those for recreational parking spots. Parking is free on Sundays and bank holidays on most public streets not subject to restrictions and is usually free Monday-Saturday between the hours of 21:00 and 08:00.
