Location information for Dover

Nestled along the southern coasts of England is a renowned tourist city and major channel port of Kent called Dover. It is closely linked to Calais and other breathtaking attractions like scenic cliffs, historical buildings, and beaches that attract visitors from all over the world especially during summertime. Cheap car hire in Dover is offered to these visitors for ease in transportation while on vacation or a business trip.

When getting started in touring Dover, a worthy first stop is the white chalky cliffs that caused Britain to be nicknamed, “Albion”, meaning “white”. The cliffs themselves are the most renowned and popular attraction in Dover since they are made of chalk. Other than that, there is the Dover Castle that seems to have come out from a fairy tale book. The castle dates back to the Norman times and it is known for its lighthouse and medieval keep.

More of Dover's history is revealed through the Dover Museum as well as the Roman painted house, a historical building that dates back to 200 AD. The house was officially used as a hotel by the Roman soldiers but its major feature is the Roman murals. Taking a trip to the historically important Dover Western Heights is also worth doing for the sake of exploring the country park.

The town of Dover offers many dining and shopping facilities that are concentrated within the Market Square and Castle Street. Another alternative option for shopping is the High Street's Carlton Shopping Centre. Dover's nightlife varies and there are choices that complement the different tastes of both locals and tourists from pubs to theatres, clubs, and cinemas.

A day out from Dover takes travellers to the countryside that they can explore with the vehicle they can get from a car rental facility. Cheap car hire in Dover allows visitors to explore the breathtaking scenery that leads them to interesting sites like the Gazen Salts.

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 Ecarz.co.uk 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?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

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).
