6 Seater Hire

Picking up your 6 Seater hire with no credit card .

You can pay with Visa, Mastercard or an American Express credit card or a debit card provided by a bank or credit card company when booking your 6 seater on our website.

Be careful when deciding if you'd like to use a debit card at the collection desk, 6 seater rental companies often block an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the hold is often a significant amount of money and if you choose to pay using debit card this might be debited from your account and not returned until weeks after your rental has ended.

Usually, 6 seater rentals that come with the Premium Cover option enable you to use a debit card on collection with no additional fees. You're able to view if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the different vehicle rental excess and insurance options on the extras page of our website booking process.

Most of the 6 seater rental brands we include will accept a debit card when you collect the 6 seater; sometimes these do have special T&Cs associated with them. Be sure that you understand the T&Cs if you want to use a debit card when you collect the vehicle.

It's really easy on our website to filter which 6 seater hire companies will accept debit card. Just use the filters on the second page to compare which 6 seater hire companies will accept your preferred card type at the collection desk.

You can book using a huge number of different currencies including Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Australian Dollars (AUD).

Our Premium cover

Premium insurance is the highest level of 6 seater hire insurance we offer.

Lots of our clients decide to choose the Premium Cover option when hiring a vehicle because it usually lowers the security deposit for the excess to zero meaning that the customer has no large security deposit or vehicle rental insurance excess risk. You can also often collect the vehicle using debit cards with Premium Cover if using a credit card is a problem.

On our website it's possible to buy Premium Cover alongside your 6 seater rental, so that you know the price of everything before you pay.

So that you're able to make an informed decision regarding which 6 seater rental insurance product is right for you, we work closely with our vehicle rental partners to provide you the option to rent a vehicle including a Premium cover product.

Selecting Premium Insurance is completely optional, you can also opt to purchase Premium Cover at the vehicle hire desk, Sometimes it's less expensive to book this up front on our website when you make your 6 seater rental booking.

6 seater car rental Insurance options:

If plan to renting a 6 seater in the United States, arriving from abroad and have a foreign driving licence, the 6 seaters in the United States you'll find listed on the website have zero excess and a low-security deposit. Most rentals in Europe and the rest of the world will often have an insurance excess. You will be offered the chance to buy a policy to cover the excess when you make your booking.

Rental car terminology

Collision damage waiver (CDW)

CDW (Collision damage waiver)
It insures the car for damage in the same way the insurance you usually have on your personal car does. It includes an excess which you can insure with an additional policy (See Excess reimbursement insurance). Our website also include rental cars that include CDW with a zero excess

Excess reimbursement insurance

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

Excess reimbursement insurance also usually covers other possible costs, such as towing, cleaning or admin fees, or misfuelling fees.
Essential Cover

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)

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

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

You might find full to empty fuel policies on other websites that seem to be lower cost deals. Always check the terms and conditions for full to empty rentals as usually the admin and refuelling fees associated with full to empty fuel policies make it more expensive than full to full .

Third party liability insurance

Third party liability insurance insures in case you cause an incident. If you do, it might injure or kill other people (such as your passengers, pedestrians or people in other vehicles), 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 loss of earnings, as well as any legal costs and court fees.

Third party liability is subject to an excess, which means you'll have to pay the first part of any claim (normally between £750 to £2,000, varying dependent on the car, the country and the deal). When you insure the excess , you will be refunded for any or all of the excess you have to pay. If you decide to take out Premium Cover, the excess is often reduced to zero.
Third party liability cover

Additional driver fees

Extra driver costs
A rental contract is between the hire car company and the one individual who signs the agreement and will be the named driver. This requires that you need to ask for other drivers to be added, this usually comes with a cost (which can be up to £13a day ). However, there are occasional special offers where extra drivers are free. Beware of being asked if you'd like to add a driver without being told the cost.

Insurance excess

For rentals outside of the US and Canada there's almost always an excess to pay* - this is similar to the excess on your own car in the UK. The excess on hire cars can be high. It's normally in the region of £1,200 to £2,700. If you decide not to insure the insurance excess amount you could be liable to pay for any 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 credit card when you pick up the car.
Car Rental excess

Theft liability insurance (theft protection)

Theft liability cover (theft protection)
It insures the amount due if the rental car is stolen. It usually includes an excess , which means you would have to pay the first part of an insurance claim (normally between £700 to £2,500, 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'll be reimbursed for any of of the excess you pay (See our essential cover). With Premium Cover your excess amount can be reduced.

Hassle free Essential insurance options

As well as being friendly, easy to use and of course, stress free, we offer two different levels of insurance when you hire a 6 seater with us.

Our essential cover doesn't cover things like cleaning fees, mechanical repairs, third party injury, loss of theft/damage to content in the vehicle and other things. For more details see the T&Cs on the extras page of the website

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 range of extra costs that standard insurance does not.

Essential cover appears as a choice in the vehicle hire insurance options. For some partner/geographical 6 seater rental combinations the cover isn't always available.

Our advice to find a cheap 6 Seater rental

Factor in the time of year:

To bag yourself a deal for your rental it pays to book in advance, especially during peak times like school holidays and Christmas. 6 seater rental can be in very high demand in the summer months and the supply of larger vehicles is more restricted than many other types of rental. If you change your mind after you've booked , we offer free cancellation, so you can cancel anytime up until 48 hours prior to collecting the car.

Mileage and fuel policy:

When you are looking around for your rental on other websites, be careful to check the fuel policy and mileage allowance. Many other websites hide this away in the T&Cs. If you go over your mileage allowance or hire a 6 seater with a full to empty fuel policy, you could be hit with some unexpected charges when you return the car. Our site only includes full to full rentals and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Security deposit and excess:

Be sure to compare the amount you're required to pay as a security deposit on your card. Often, for cheaper 6 seater rentals, you will be required to pay a higher security deposit, this is held on your credit card when you collect the car. You will always see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.

Additional drivers and child seats:

You can see the cost of extras on the extras page. Whenever available we have special promotions, including extra drivers in the price. When free extra 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 plan to drive your 6 seater over a border into a different country, additional fees are usually charged by the car rental company. Be careful to check the T&Cs for these before you book as it can be quite expensive. If you can't find them on our website, contact one of our car hire advisors and they'll be happy to help.

Why we're different

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

Our pricing always includes added fees that other vehicle hire websites often don't display - this ensures that our process is as transparent as it can be.

The reason we decided to do things a bit differently is because we got frustrated with seeing people being hit with unexpected fees and felt like we could do a better job.

6 seater hire providers we work with include big vehicle hire companies like Europcar and Hertz there are some companies we know will not give you the price or experience that you deserve - so we do not list these on our website.

We don't like to work with just any 6 seater rental firms. We're selective to only work with 6 seater rental brands you can trust.

Stress Free Car Rental won't be beaten on price. Our 6 seater hire price match promise means that if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower cost, we'll match it.

Stressfreecarrental.com work hard to ensure that we provide customers with all of the best 6 seater hire deals with no unexpected charges.

Stress Free Car Rental compares millions of 6 seater hire deals at 1000s of vehicle hire locations to source great offers and ensure that booking them on the website as quick, easy and Stress Free as possible

Although it's highly unusual for them to be unavailable, their availability is not guaranteed by most car rental companies

Hiring a Car with a Reduced Security Deposit

Renting a Car with a Reduced Security Deposit

When you pick up the car, you will usually be required to leave a security deposit on your debit card or credit card. Security deposits can vary significantly subject to the size of the car and the insurance excess amount. Car hire Security deposits can range 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. When you decide to book 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 (usually less than £100), which is refunded when the vehicle is returned with a full tank.

Car Hire with Free Cancellation

All the car rentals we offer include free cancellation. Free Cancellation means that you're able to cancel the car hire and receive a full refund at any point up until 48 hours before you collect the vehicle.

If you've purchased the Essential Cover product to insure the car rental excess, you're able to cancel this with a full refund anytime up until the rental collection time( as printed on your rental confirmation email).

All refunds are processed by us in less than 24 hours. If you have to cancel the rental, this means that the money will be back in your account within 7 days.

Hiring a Car with One Way Fees included

How to Rent a Car with One Way Fees included

Most of the vehicle hire brands we include permit you to pick up your car in one location and drop off the car at a different location. If you've chosen a different drop off location for the rental, the prices displayed on our website will include any extra charges for this. You can also find a breakdown of all additional charges on the payment page.

How to Hire a Car with Cross Border Fees Included

If you want to collect your rental and drive it across the border into a different country, you should always check the terms and conditions. Most car rental providers insist that you inform them when you collect the car; and usually charge additional fees to top up the insurance. If you fail to do so, it's possible that your rental will not be insured when you cross over into a different country.

You'll find the information relating to cross border policies by clicking Rental terms and viewing 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 one of our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

How to hire a including a Free Additional Driver

You can find offers on our website including a free additional driver bundled with the price. Use the filters on the search results page to find bundled extra driver deals. It's also possible to add an additional driver on the extras page before you complete your booking.

How to Hire a Car without an Insurance Excess Held on Your Card

The insurance excess is the amount you would be required to pay if the vehicle is severely damaged, written off or stolen. The excess on hire cars can be high. It's normally between £900 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'll have to pay some or all of the excess.

On collection of the hire car, the insurance excess is held on your card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. Pre Auth means that the money isn't charged to your credit card as a regular transaction, it's held as a pending transaction until you return the vehicle. You won't normally pay currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions, so provided the rental car is returned in the same condition as when you collected it, the amount is fully refunded to your card without anything additional to pay.

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

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

How to Rent a Car with Unlimited Mileage

Hiring a Car with Unlimited Mileage

Our website offers both limited and unlimited mileage rental.

Limited mileage rentals can often be less expensive than unlimited. For limited mileage rentals, the mileage limit is always clearly visibile. If you decide to book a rental with limited mileage, you'll be charged a per mile additional fee if you go above the daily mileage allowance. The total mileage allowance for the rental is calculated as (the number of hire days multiplied by the daily allowance). You don't have to stay within the daily limit on every day, provided that the total miles used during the rental doesn't exceed the number of days X the daily allowance.

If you opt for a limited mileage rental, we recommend checking the costs for excess mileage. You can find these in our term and conditions. It's also possible to use the filters on our website to find car hire including unlimited mileage which will save money if you're planning a longer trip

Whether you are planning a golf trip with your friends or a holiday with your extended family, our website compares a wide range of affordable 6 seaters for rental at 1000s of hire locations globally, from brands you can trust including Europcar and many more, so we're sure to have an affordable 6 seater option that meets your needs .

Sharing the driving on your trip? look out for special offers on the website for 6 seater rentals including free extra drivers. These deals can save you money compared with paying for additional drivers when you collect the vehicle.

The 6 seaters on our website include a price match guarantee and free cancellation. So you can change your plans and cancel with a full refund any time up to 48 hours before you collect the vehicle.

Would you like to hire a 6 seater with no credit card? We include all the options enabling you to pick up your 6 seater hire with a a debit card instead. Use the filter section on our search page to find these options.

We only compare 6 seaters that come with a fair full to full fuel policy. You'll pick up the vehicle with a full fuel tank and return it full. A small deposit for the fuel will be held on your credit card when you pick up the vehicle and refunded when you drop it off full. Beware of full to empty fuel policies you might compare at a lower cost on other websites, full to empty usually comes with some hefty extra fees for fuel, we recommend to always check the T&Cs for full to empty rentals.

If you're trying to find a 6 seater rental with no excess and no deposit, take a look at our premium cover options. Premium Cover reduces the excess and security deposit on your vehicle rental (sometimes to zero).
