As well as being easy to use, friendly and of course, stress free, we offer two additional levels of insurance when you book a 7 seater with us.
Essential cover, offered at the same time as you make your vehicle booking, is a vehicle hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a range of additional charges that standard insurance does not.
Essential cover doesn't cover things like loss of theft/damage to content in the vehicle, third party injury mechanical repairs, cleaning fees. For more info see the T&Cs on the extras page
We accept Visa, Mastercard or an American Express debit card or credit card issued by your bank or credit card company when booking your 7 seater on our website.
Many of the 7 seater rental partners we work with will accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the rental; but often these do have special conditions related with them. Ensure that you understand the terms and conditions if you intend to use a debit card when you collect the vehicle.
Would you like us to accept payments with a method other than debit card and credit card? Please get in touch and let us know. We're open to ideas regarding how we can improve our service and make paying for your vehicle rental as Stress Free as it can be.
It's practical to understand the different payment and currency options for your 7 seater rental, as often payments for extras (like Sat Nav and extra drivers) might need to be settled in the local currency (by credit card or debit card) at the collection counter.
It's worth bearing in mind that quite frequently 7 seater rental companies that will accept debit card on collection are not as cost effective as those that accept credit card only.

A small deposit for fuel will be held on your credit card when you collect the vehicle and refunded when you return it with a full tank. Look out for full to empty fuel policies you might see at a lower cost on other sites, full to empty usually means you should expect some expensive extra fees for fuel, so always check the T&Cs for full to empty rentals.
