Car rental terms explained

Excess Insurance

Essential Cover
Purchasing this policy ensures you'll be reimbursed for any of the excess that's held on your credit card by the car rental company .

This insurance also usually covers other possible costs, such as towing, cleaning or admin fees, or misfuelling fees.

Additional driver costs

Car hire agreements is between the hire car company and the one individual that signs the agreement and will be the main driver. This requires that you will have to ask for any other drivers to be added, and this usually comes with a cost (which can be up to £10a day ). We often list special offers that include extra drivers are free. Always be cautious of being asked if you'd like to add a driver without being informed of the cost.
Extra driver charges

Insurance excess

Rental car excess
For rentals outside of the US and Canada there's usually an insurance excess to pay* - this is similar to the excess on domestic car insurance in the UK. The excess on rental cars can be very high. It's often in the region of £1,100 to £2,700. If you decide not to cover the insurance excess amount you could be liable to pay for damage up to the value of the excess amount. Take a look at our Premium Cover hire car options if you'd like to avoid having a large amount held on your card .

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)

The rentals on our site include a full to fuel fuel policy.

You'll be required to hold a small deposit for fuel on your credit card when you pick up the hire car. Ensure that you fill the car up and drop it off full and there will be nothing further to pay for fuel.

You might find full to empty policies on other sites that seem to be offering cheaper deals. Always check the terms and conditions for full to empty rentals as usually the admin and refuelling charges associated with full to empty fuel policies make it much more expensive than full to full fuel policies.

Third party liability cover

Third party liability insurance
Third party liability insurance insures in case you cause an accident. If you do, it could kill or injure others (such as your passengers, people in other vehicles or pedestrians), or damage their property (their vehicle, house or possessions, for example). Since they need to be covered, you'd be responsible any claim, or treating injuries or financially covering loss of earnings, as well as any legal fees and court fees.

Third party liability is usually subject to an excess, which means you'll have to pay the first part of any claim (normally between £900 to £1,700, varying dependent on the car, the deal and the country). If you choose to cover your excess amount, you will be reimbursed for any or all of the excess you have to pay. Or if you take out Premium Cover, your excess is often reduced to zero.

Damage Liability

CDW covers the car for accident damage in the same way the insurance cover you have on your personal car does. CDW usually includes an excess which you can choose to insure separately (See Excess reimbursement insurance). Stress Free Car Rental also include car hire on the site that include CDW with no excess amount
Collision damage waiver (CDW)

Theft liability cover (theft protection)

Theft liability cover (theft protection)
It insures the amount due if the rental car is stolen. It is subject to an excess amount, this means you'll be required to pay the first part of an insurance claim (normally between £800 to £3,000, depending on the deal, the car rental company and the location.

If you choose to insure your excess with an excess reimbursement policy, however, you will be refunded for any of of the excess you pay (See our essential cover). With Premium Cover your excess can be reduced.

13 seater car hire Insurance options:

If you are hiring a 13 seater in the United States, arriving from overseas and have a foreign driving licence, all of the 13 seaters in the USA you will find listed on the website have a low security deposit and no insurance excess. Rentals in the rest of the world will often have an insurance excess. You're offered the chance to purchase a policy to cover the excess on the extras page of our website.

Picking up your 13 Seater hire without a credit card and other payment options.

We accept Visa, Mastercard or an American Express debit card or credit card issued by your bank or credit card company when hiring a 13 seater with us.

Lots of the 13 seater rental partners we compare prices for accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the rental; often these do have special T&Cs related with them. Be sure that you understand the contract terms if you intend to use a debit card when you collect the vehicle.

It can be practical to understand the alternative payment options for your 13 seater hire, as often payments for add ons (like GPS and extra drivers) might have to be paid for in the local currency (by credit card or debit card) at the collection counter.

Would you prefer us to accept payments with a method other than debit card and credit card? Do contact us to let us know. We are always open to ideas regarding how to improve the service we offer and make arranging your vehicle rental as Stress Free as it can be.

Stress Free Car Rental accepts a range of currencies including British Pounds (GBP),US Dollars (USD) and South African Rand (ZAR).

One important thing to consider when deciding if you'd prefer to use a debit card on collection, 13 seater hire companies frequently hold an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the hold is often a large amount of money and if you opt to pay using debit card this will be debited from your bank account and not refunded until weeks after your rental has ended.

Quite often, rentals that include our Premium Cover option enable you to use a debit card when you pick up the vehicle without any additional charges. You're able to compare if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the different vehicle hire excess and insurance options on the second step of our website booking process.

It's really simple on the website to filter which 13 seater hire partners do accept debit card. Simply use the filters on the second page to compare which 13 seater hire brands will accept your card type at the collection desk.

Top tips to find a cheap 13 Seater rental

Consider the time of year:

To find the best deals for your vehicle rental it makes sense to book in advance, especially during peak times like Summer holidays and easter. 13 seater hire can be in very high demand in the school holidays and often the supply of large vehicles is more restricted than many other types of car. If you change your mind after you've booked , we include free cancellation, so you can cancel at any point up until 48 hours prior to collecting the vehicle.

Mileage and fuel policy:

When you are looking around for your rental on other websites, be careful to factor in the fuel policy and mileage allowance. Many other websites hide this away in the terms and conditions. If you go over your mileage allowance or hire a 13 seater with a full to empty fuel policy, you could end up with some unexpected charges when you return the vehicle. Our site only includes full to full rentals and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Security deposit and excess:

Always compare the amount you'll have to leave as a security deposit on your card. For cheaper 13 seater rentals, you'll have to pay a more expensive security deposit, which is 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 the extras page. Whenever available we have special promotions, including additional drivers in the price. Where free additional drivers are available, you can find them clearly displayed on the search results page of our website.

Border crossing and one-way fees:

If you intend to drive your 13 seater over a border into a different country, extra fees are normally charged by the car hire provider. Be sure to check the T&Cs for these before you book as it can be expensive. If you can't find them on our website, please contact one of our car hire advisors and they'll be happy to help.

Car Hire with a Reduced Security Deposit

Car Hire with a Reduced Security Deposit

At the collection desk, you will often be required to leave a security deposit on your debit card or credit card. Security deposits can vary significantly subject to the make and model of the vehicle and the excess amount. Car hire Security deposits can vary between £100 and £2,500.

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 your deposit to cover only the cost of a full tank of fuel (often less than £100), this is fully refunded when the rental is returned with a full tank.

How to Hire a Car without an Excess

The excess is the total amount you would be liable to pay if the vehicle is written off, severely damaged or stolen. However, the excess on hire cars can be very expensive. It's often between £1,000 to £2,100. If the car is returned damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll have to pay some or all of the excess.

On collection of the vehicle, the excess is held on your credit card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the amount is not charged to your credit card as a regular payment, it's held as a pending transaction until you drop off the car. You won't normally pay currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised transactions. As long as the rental car is returned in the same condition as when you collected it, the amount is fully refunded to your card with nothing additional to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the excess amount will be taken from your bank account and refunded when the vehicle is dropped off. If you plan to use debit card on collection, as the excess is often very high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover on our website or to buy top up cover at the rental desk.

To view rental options with a £0 or reduced excess review our Premium Cover rental options.

Car Hire with Cross Border Fees Included

Hiring a Car and Cross Border Fees

If you plan to pick up your rental and drive it over the border , we strongly recommend to review the terms and conditions. Most car rental providers insist that you let them know when you collect the car; and usually charge additional fees to top up the insurance. If you fail to do so, you might find that the rental car will not be insured when you cross over into a different country.

You can find the details of cross border policies 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.

Car Hire with Unlimited Mileage

Hiring a Car with Unlimited Mileage

Our website offers limited and unlimited mileage rentals.

Limited mileage rentals can often be cheaper than unlimited. For limited mileage rentals, the daily mileage allowance will always be clearly displayed. If you decide to book a rental including limited mileage, you will be liable to pay a per mile additional fee if you go above the daily mileage allowance. The total mileage allowance for the rental duration is calculated as (the number of rental days X the daily mileage allowance). You do not have to stay within the daily allowance on every day, as long as the total miles used during the rental does not go over the number of days multiplied by the daily allowance.

Why Stress Free Car Rental is different

There's a wide variety of reasons why we're different from our competitors but to start, it's important to recognise that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our own frustration with the process of renting a vehicle.
