Book your car hire early

✔ Book your Car Hire early

Don’t book last minute.  We’d recommend booking at the same time you book your flights and hotel.  If you’re travelling during peak periods or in a high-demand dates like bank holidays, this is more important.  People who booked for August in July paid 26% more than the early birds who booked in May.

Don’t purchase a full tank

✔ Don’t Purchase a Full Tank

Jersey is only 5 miles (8 km) long and 9 miles (14.5 km) wide – therefore you’ll struggle to burn a full tank driving around with a maximum speed limit of 40mph.

Don’t pay for a Sat Nav

Don’t Pay for a Sat Nav

Navigating a trip around the island can be quite difficult with all its narrow roads.  But if you add a sat nav as an extra, it will set you back around £70 for a week’s hire.  Use your phone, and download a map app before you go.
