Collecting your rental car
Jersey Airport (JER)
Two of the car hire operators - Hertz and Europcar, have desks in the Arrivals Hall at Jersey airport. If you are booked with either of these companies, then just give them your booking confirmation when you have passed through baggage reclaim and they will be able to issue you with your keys. They also have an on-site car park where all their hire vehicles are based.
Other companies, such as Avis, do not have desks based in the actual terminal itself, but they have off-site facilities and run a customer transfer service direct to their office and car park. Offices are generally open from 8.00 am until 8.00 pm during summer months and 8.00 am until 7.30 pm during the winter.
Driving around Jersey
With a Jersey hire car, you'll be able to explore all corners of this beautiful Channel island. If history is your thing, then there are many landmarks charting Jersey's history of occupation and defending itself against invasion, including Mont Orgueil Castle. Just off the coast of St Aubin, lies Elizabeth Castle, which can be reached on foot at low tide only. One of the best beaches on the island can be found at St Ouen's Bay, whose waves are great for surfing. Along the south coast, there are sheltered stretches of sand, St Aubin's and St Brelade's Bay where you can soak up the sun and sample local cuisine in one of the sea-side restaurants.

Driving in Jersey**
Being part of the UK, the Channel Islands, including Jersey, adhere to the same driving laws as Great Britain. Cars are all right-hand drive and the road signs are all in miles.
Useful Driving Information
Road safety laws
Please always check the road signs for local speed limits. Although there are no fixed speed cameras in Jersey, mobile speed cameras are common place. If you are caught speeding, you will be liable to points on your licence and a fine as is the case on the UK mainland.
Filter in Turn - This is a local driving phenomenon to Jersey and occurs when you approach a junction or turn and priority is given to traffic on your right. Once they have moved, it will be your turn and traffic on your left will then give way to you. The Filter in Turn rule helps to keep traffic flowing.
It is illegal to use a hand-held mobile phone whilst driving. You can be liable to receive fixed penalty notice if you are caught using a hand-held phone while driving. This could involve a substantial fine and 3 points on your licence. Hands-free kits are permitted.
Drinking and driving
If you are stopped by the Police because they suspect you have been drinking, they will ask you to undertake a breathalyser test. The limit for all motorists is 80mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood - the same as the UK.
It is important to note that drinking alcohol and then driving may invalidate your car rental insurance, irrespective of local drink driving laws. Check your policy for full details.
Important Information - Changes to the UK Driving Licence
If you have a UK driving licence you are permitted to drive in Northern Ireland without the need for an International Driving Permit
**This information should be considered as a broad overview of things to remember when hiring a car. It is therefore very important that you read the rental terms and conditions and associated policies for your own specific policy as well as doing your own research into the motoring laws of the country in which you will be driving.Top
