11 Seater Rental

Hire car terms

Extra driver fees

Additional driver fees
A rental contract is between the hire car company and the person who signs the contract and will be the main driver. This means you need to ask for any other drivers to be added, and this usually means an additional cost ( can be up to £10a day ). We often list promotions where extra drivers are free. Beware of being asked if you'd like to add a driver without being told the price.

CDW (Collision damage waiver)

CDW provides insurance protection for damage in a similar way the insurance cover you have on your own car does. It includes an excess amount which you can choose to insure separately (See Excess reimbursement insurance). We also include cars that include CDW with no excess amount
CDW (Collision damage waiver)

Third party liability cover

Third party liability insurance
Third party liability insurance insures in case you cause an incident. If you do, it could injure or kill other people (such as your passengers, people in other vehicles or pedestrians), or damage property (their vehicle, house or possessions, for example). As legally they need to be protected, you could be responsible the cost of any damage, or treating any injuries or covering their loss of earnings, as well as any legal fees and any court fees.

Third party liability is usually subject to an excess, which means you would need to pay the first part of any claim (normally between £900 to £2,000, varying dependent on the value of the car, the deal and the country). If you choose to cover the excess amount, you'll be refunded for all of the excess amount you have to pay. If you decide to take out Premium Cover, your excess amount can be reduced to zero.

Excess Insurance

Choosing this policy ensures you'll be refunded for the excess you have to pay to the car hire company .

Excess reimbursement insurance also tends to cover other possible costs, such as towing, cleaning or admin fees, or misfuelling costs.

Theft liability insurance (theft protection)

Theft liability cover (theft protection)
It insures the amount due if the hire car is stolen. It is subject to an excess , this means you'll need to pay the first part of an insurance claim (normally between £700 to £2,000, depending on the deal, the car rental company and the location.

When you insure your excess with an excess reimbursement policy, however, you'll be reimbursed for any or all of of the excess you pay (See essential cover). Or with Premium Cover your excess amount is often reduced.

Insurance excess

For rentals outside of the US and Canada there's usually an insurance excess held on your card* - just like on domestic car insurance in the UK. However, the excess on hire cars can be high. It's usually between £1,100 to £2,700. If you decide not to cover the insurance excess you could be liable to pay for damage to the car up to the excess . Check out our Premium Cover hire car options if you'd prefer not to have a large amount blocked on your credit card when you collect the car.

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)
The hire cars on the site always include a fair full to fuel fuel policy.

When you collect you rental you'll be asked to hold a deposit for fuel on a credit card when you pick up the hire car. Ensure that you fill the rental up and drop it off full and there will be no additional fees for fuel.

You might see full to empty fuel policies on other websites that seem to be offering better deals. Always check the terms and conditions for full to empty rentals as the admin and refuelling charges included with full to empty fuel policies always make it more expensive than full to full .

Our advice to find a deal on your 11 Seater rental

Factor in the dates you're booking:

To find the best deals for your vehicle rental it pays to book , especially during peak times like school holidays and Christmas. 11 seater rental can be in very high demand in the summer months and often the supply of large vehicles is more restricted than many other types of rental. If the price drops after you've booked with us, we offer free cancellation, so you can cancel and rebook at any point until 48 hours before you collect the vehicle.

Mileage and fuel policy:

If you are comparing the options for your rental on other websites, be cautious to check the fuel policy and mileage allowance. Some other websites hide this away in the T&Cs. If you use more than the mileage allowance or hire a 11 seater with a full to empty fuel policy, you could be hit with some unexpected charges when you drop off the vehicle. We only offer full to full rentals and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Excess and Security Deposit:

Ensure that you check the amount you'll have to leave as a security deposit on your card. Often, for cheaper 11 seater rentals, you will have to leave a higher security deposit, which will be held on your credit card when you collect the car. You'll see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.

Additional drivers and child seats:

You'll find the prices of these on our extras page. We often have special promotions, including extra drivers in the price. Where free additional drivers are available, you can find them clearly listed on the search results page of our website.

Border crossing and one-way fees:

If you intend to take your 11 seater across a border into a different country, additional fees are usually charged by the car hire company. Be sure to check the terms and conditions for these fees before you book as they can be expensive. If you can't find them on our website, contact one of our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

Collecting your 11 Seater hire using a debit card and other payment options.

You can use a American Express, Visa or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card provided by your bank or credit card company when hiring a 11 seater on our website.

We've made it incredibly easy on our website to filter which 11 seater rental partners do accept debit card. Just use the filters on the search results page to compare the 11 seater hire companies do accept your card type when you pick up the vehicle.

It's important to consider when deciding if you should use a debit card at the collection desk, 11 seater rental companies frequently hold an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess is often a significant amount of money and if you opt to pay with a debit card this will be debited from your account and not refunded until weeks after completion of your rental contract.

Would you like us to take payment using something other than credit card or debit card? Do get in touch and let us know. We are always open to ideas about how we can enhance the service we offer to make paying for your vehicle hire as Stress Free as it can be.

We accept a huge range of currencies including Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Australian Dollars (AUD).

Many of the 11 seater hire brands we include will accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the rental; some of these do have different terms and conditions associated with them. Be careful to review the T&Cs if you plan to use a debit card at the desk when collecting the vehicle.

It's worth bearing in mind that often 11 seater hire brands that will accept debit card at the desk are not as cheap as 11 seater hire companies that accept credit card only.

Hiring a Car with Free Cancellation

Hiring a Car with No Cancellation Fee

All the car rentals we list on our website include free cancellation. Free Cancellation means that you can cancel the rental and receive a full refund at any point up until 48 hours before you collect the car.

Renting a Car and Cross Border Fees

If you'd like to pick up your vehicle and drive it over the border , you should always check the terms and conditions. Most car hire providers require that you let them know when you collect the car; and usually charge additional fees to top up your insurance. If you fail to do so, it's possible that your rental will not be insured if you take the rental into a different country.

You'll find the information relating to cross border charges and fees by checking the Rental terms and checking the Cross Border Rules section.

If you're struggling to find the cross border terms and conditions for your car hire get in touch with our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

How to Rent a Car with One Way Fees included

Many of the car brands we work with allow you to pick up your vehicle in one location and return the car at a different location. If you have selected a different drop off location for the rental, the prices you'll see on our website will include all additional fees for this. You will also see a breakdown of the additional charges on the payment page.

How to Rent a Car with a Reduced Security Deposit

When you pick up the car, you'll be asked to leave a security deposit on a credit card or debit card. The security deposit can vary significantly dependent on the make and model of the vehicle and the excess amount. Car hire Security deposits can be anywhere between £0 and £2,100.

We compare all of the car hire options with a low security deposit and in some instances no deposit at all except for fuel. If you choose to reserve a rental with Premium Cover included, you're often able to reduce the deposit to cover only fuel (often less than £100), which is fully refunded when the car is returned with a full tank.

Renting a Car with Unlimited Mileage

How to Hire a Car with Unlimited Mileage

Our website offers both unlimited and limited mileage rentals.

Limited mileage rentals are often cheaper than unlimited. When considering limited mileage rentals, the mileage limit is always clearly displayed. If you decide to book a rental with limited mileage, you'll be charged a per mile additional fee if you exceed the daily mileage allowance. The mileage allowance for the whole rental duration is calculated as (the number of hire days multiplied by the daily allowance). You don't have to remain within the daily allowance on every day, as long as the total miles used throughout the rental doesn't exceed the number of days multiplied by the daily allowance.

If you choose a limited mileage rental, we recommend checking the charges for excess mileage. These can be found in our T&Cs section. You can also use the filters on our website to display hire cars including unlimited mileage which can save money if you're planning a longer trip

Renting a Car without an Insurance Excess

The insurance excess is the total amount you'd be liable to pay if the vehicle is written off, severely damaged or stolen. The excess on hire cars can be very expensive. It's often between £1,000 to £2,000, depending on the car, the country and the deal. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you will have to pay some or all of the excess.

When you pick up the vehicle, the excess is held on your card as something called a 'pre-auth' transaction. This means that the amount is not taken from your card as a normal transaction, it's held as a pending transaction until you drop off the car. You don't usually have to pay foreign currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised transactions. As long as the rental car is returned in the same condition as when it was collected, this excess amount will be fully refunded to your credit card without anything further to pay.

If you intend to pay for your rental by debit card, the insurance excess amount is taken from your account and refunded when the vehicle is returned. If you intend to use a debit card on collection, as the excess can be high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover on our website or to pay for top up cover at the rental desk.

To view car hire options with a £0 or reduced excess take a look at our Premium Cover rental options.

Renting a Car with Child Seats

You'll be offered the option to include them with your rental when you make a booking on our website. Child seats are paid in local currency when collecting the car. Although it's highly unusual for them to be unavailable, their availability is not guaranteed by most car rental companies

Our Premium cover

Premium insurance is the highest option for 11 seater hire insurance we offer.

Most rentals in the rest of the world will often require an insurance excess. You're offered the chance to purchase a policy to cover the excess when you make your booking.

Why we're different

There's a bucket load of reasons why we are different from our competitors but to start, it's important to understand that Stress Free Car Rental was born out of our own frustration with the process of hiring a vehicle.

We don't like to be be beaten on price. Our 11 seater rental price match promise means that if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower price, we'll match it.

Pricing on our website includes additional fees that other websites don't usually display - this makes sure that your experience is as transparent as it can be.

We don't work with just any 11 seater rental providers. We're careful to only work with brands you can trust.

The reason we do things differently is because we got annoyed with seeing customers getting shortchanged and thought we could provide a more transparent service.

Our website collects millions of prices at 1000s of vehicle hire locations to find you amazing deals and ensure that booking them on our website as fast, simple, simple, fast and Stress Free as it can be

Stress Free Car Rental work to deliver you with all of the best 11 seater rental prices with no hidden fees.

Stress Free Essential insurance options

As well as being easy to use, friendly and of course, stress free, we offer two different levels of insurance when you book a 11 seater with us.

Essential cover will appear as an option in the vehicle hire insurance options. For some partner/geographical 11 seater rental combinations the cover might not be available.

Essential Cover includes fire, weather, theft, damage caused to the vehicle, flushing the engine after misfuelling, key cover and much more.

Our essential cover, offered when you make your vehicle booking, is a vehicle hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a selection of extra charges that standard insurance doesn't.
