Location information for Dover

Dover is one of the busiest cross-channel ports in England because it is located near the French port of Calais. This is also why it constantly plays host to thousands of travellers each year particularly during the summer months. This tourist destination is located in Kent on the Southern coast of England. Travellers usually arrange for cheap car hire in Dover to easily get to the nearby villages.

A car rental will not be necessary for touring the town centre, however, as this area is compact enough for leisurely walks. Some of the most popular attractions include the Dover Museum, which features an extensive collection of artefacts such as the Bronze Age Boat, the oldest seagoing boat in the world. From the museum, visit the Dover Town Hall, the largest function hall in the town. It is a venue for a number of public and private events happening all year round.

The white cliffs of Dover are, without a doubt, the town's main attraction. The cliffs are made of chalk and are the reason why Britain was nicknamed 'Albion.' While you're in town, make sure to visit the Dover Castle as well. The structure was built during the Norman times and is well known for being a castle that fairy tales are made of with its medieval period lighthouse and keep.

After spending the day sightseeing, treat your palate to variety of cuisines served in the many restaurants all over Dover. Shopping opportunities are mostly located around Castle Street and the Market Square. Carlton Shopping Centre on High Street is also worth a visit.

Outside town, there are a lot of interesting villages that are worth arranging car hire in Dover for. Day trips to the surrounding countryside and places of interest such as the Gazen Salts are definitely in order while you're in the area.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
