Car rental insurance in Bristol

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Bristol 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 Bristol.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental 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 Bristol car rental.

10.0 ExcellentJul 6 2021
Pros: The price, the ease of going in and renting the car. I loved the car
4.4 OkayJan 2 2020
Cons: They were 2 hours late for pick up and then told me there was nothing they could do to compensate me because I had prepaid. They eventually offered me a voucher towards a future rental but didn't disclose how much it would be for and I haven't received it yet. Don't book here if you value your time.

2.0 MediocreJan 4 2018
Never got a CarPros: The first Hertz agent I talked to was forthright that he was waiting for cars, but didn't have any at the time of pickup.Cons: Changing the reservation time on the phone was easy - except there were no cars available when I tried to pick up the car! I asked them to call me and was ensured they would but they never did. I came back later that night and there still were no cars.
