Car hire excess insurance in Beijing

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Beijing 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 Beijing.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess 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 Beijing car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Beijing

  • Having a car hire in Beijing will afford you much more independence and allow you to explore the city's many attractions on your own terms. It will also allow you to travel wherever you want outside of the city to nearby towns and attractions that may be difficult to access via public transport or expensive via taxi.
  • You can pick up your Beijing car hire from Terminal 3 of Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK). However, if you don't yet have your Chinese driver's licence when you land, you will need to wait until you acquire this before getting your hire vehicle, so you may wish to utilise one of the many car hire services in the city centre instead. Either way, we recommend booking ahead through KAYAK, so you can be confident in your plans.
  • The only way you can drive a car hire in Beijing is if you have a Chinese driver's licence. If you have a visitor visa that allows three months of stay, you can get a provisional Chinese driver's licence. You will need to take your passport, local driver's licence and translations of these documents to a service centre, where you should be issued a licence within a few hours. When driving your car hire in Beijing, if someone behind you sounds their horn signalling they want to overtake you, you are expected to move to the right as quickly as you can (so long as it is safe) and allow them to do so. Right turns on red are allowed in Beijing as long as you come to a complete stop first.
  • While it is generally the rule that cars drive on the right side of the road, it is not uncommon to see vehicles driving down the left side, particularly cyclists and motorcyclists. This is especially true on roads outside the city, where drivers may switch lanes to avoid potholes; in these situations, you are expected to do what you safely can to avoid them, including pull over to the side of the road and stop. You will also find that drivers turning left tend to move into the opposite lane of traffic and turn from there before switching to the right lane. In general, when driving in Beijing, stick to the rules yourself but don't expect others to do so.
