Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands and it has influences from both the British and French cultures as well as plenty of sunny weather to entice visitors all year round. In Jersey car hire is essential as you will want to explore every corner of this gorgeous island.

Hiring A Car In Jersey

Some holidays in Jersey start with a boat ride but it is quicker to hop on a plane and then use the car hire Jersey Airport provides to get around. The traffic in the capital St Helier can get a little bothersome but as long as you avoid rush hour the rest of the island is relatively accessible to drivers.

Places To Visit In Jersey

To the north of the island the craggy cliffs face the UK whilst other coastal regions are dotted with stretches of pure, clean sand. That means those who like to hike organise car rental in Jersey and head north, whilst beach-bound holidaymakers can take their pick of the other areas. St Helier is well worth visiting for fine dining and for a hotel Jersey provides plenty of options from the cheap B&B to high class accommodation.

General Advice on Hiring a Car

When you purchase car hire you are entering into a contract with your car hire company. Always check their terms and conditions before you buy to make sure you're aware of your responsibilities when you collect your car in Jersey, and any additional charges.


Here's a few things to watch out for:

  • Almost all car hire companies add a mandatory fee for drivers under the age of 25.
  • Check what level of insurance is included for the hire car in Jersey. In particular check how much the excess is (the amount you need to pay in the event of any accident) you may want to take out additional insurance.
  • Check what the fuel policy is with your car. Don't forget to fill up the tank before you drop it off if you've agreed to return it full!
  • Find out if there's a maximum daily mileage - especially if you're planning to do a lot of driving in Jersey!
  • You'll need to pay a deposit (or pre-approve one) to pick up the car. Most car rental companies will only accept credit cards for this.
