The 7 seaters on our website include a price match guarantee and free cancellation. You're able to change your plans and cancel with a full refund up to 48 hours before you pick up the vehicle.

Want to hire a 7 seater without a credit card? We include all of the payment options enabling you to pick up your 7 seater hire with a a debit card . You can use the filter section on our search results page to find these options.

We only compare 7 seaters that come with a fair full to full fuel policy. You will pick up the vehicle with a full tank and drop it off full. 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.

If you're looking for 7 seater hire with no excess and no deposit, check out our premium cover options. Premium Cover reduces the security deposit and excess on your rental (sometimes to zero).

Need help or advice? Get in touch with one of our car rental advisors and we'll have your rental sorted in minutes.

Stress Free Car Rental's Premium cover option

Premium insurance is the highest option for 7 seater hire insurance we provide.

So that you can make an informed decision relating to which 7 seater rental insurance product is right for you, we work closely with our vehicle rental partners to give you the ability to buy a Premium cover product.

A lot of our clients choose the Premium Cover option when renting a 7 seater because it usually reduces the excess to zero meaning that you have no large security deposit or vehicle hire insurance excess risk. Customers can also often pay with debit cards with Premium Cover if using a credit card is a problem.

How to Rent a Car with a Low Security Deposit

How to Rent a Car with a Low Security Deposit

When you collect the car, you'll often be asked to leave a security deposit on your credit card or debit card. The security deposit can vary significantly subject to the make and model of the vehicle and the excess . Car hire Security deposits can be anywhere between £0 and £2,200.

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 reserve a rental with Premium Cover included, you're often able to reduce the deposit to cover only fuel (usually less than £100), this is refunded to your card when the car is dropped off with a full tank.

Car Hire with a Free Additional Driver

Look out for deals on our website including a free extra driver bundled into the price. Use the filters on the search results page to find bundled extra driver deals. You can also add an additional driver on the extras page before you complete your booking.

Renting a Car with no Insurance Excess

How to Hire a Car with no Excess Held on Your Card

The insurance excess is the amount you'd be required to pay if the vehicle is written off, severely damaged or stolen. The excess amount on hire cars can be very expensive. It's often between £900 to £2,000. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you will have to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

When you arrive to collect the rental car, the excess is held on your credit card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the amount is not taken from your credit card as a normal payment, it's held as a pending transaction until you return the vehicle. You don't normally pay foreign currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised payments. As long as the car is dropped off in the same condition as when you collected it, this amount is fully refunded to your card without anything additional to pay.

If you intend to pay for your rental by debit card, the excess will be taken from your account and refunded when the car is returned. If you plan to use a debit card on collection, as the excess is often high, it's recommended to 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 options.

Renting a Car with Unlimited Mileage

We offer limited and unlimited mileage rentals.

Limited mileage rentals are often a cheaper option than unlimited. When considering limited mileage rentals, the daily mileage allowance will always be clearly visibile. If you decide to book a rental including limited mileage, you will be charged a per mile additional fee if you go above the daily allowance. The total mileage allowance for the whole rental is calculated as (the number of hire days X the daily mileage allowance). You don't have to remain within the daily limit on every day, provided that the total miles used throughout the rental doesn't exceed the number of days X the daily limit.

If you opt for a limited mileage rental, we recommend checking the costs for excess mileage. These can be found in our T&Cs section. It's also possible to use the search filters on our website to display hire cars including unlimited mileage which can save you money if you're planning a longer journey

How to Rent a Car and Cross Border Fees

Hiring a Car and Cross Border Fees

If you plan to pick up your car hire and drive it over the border into a different country, you should always check the terms and conditions. Many car hire brands insist that you inform them on collection; and will charge additional fees to top up the insurance. If you do not let them know, you might find that the rental car will not be insured if you take the rental into a different country.

You'll find the details of cross border policies by clicking 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 vehicle rental brands we include allow you to pick up the vehicle in one location and return the car at a different location. If you have chosen a different drop off location for the rental, the prices you'll see displayed on our website will include all extra fees for this. You'll also find a full breakdown of the additional fees on the payment page.

How to hire a car without a credit card

You can pay for your car hire on our website using any credit or debit card, including Visa, Mastercard or American Express. We also compare car hire deals at 1000s of locations that accept a debit card on collection.

Renting a Car with Child Seats or booster seats

You can take along your own child seats for your car rental, as long as they meet the legal safety requirements for use in your car hire location.

You will also have the opportunity to add them to your car rental when you make a booking on the website. Child seats and booster seats are paid in local currency when you collect the rental.

Renting a Car with No Cancellation Fee

Hiring a Car with No Cancellation Fee

All the hire cars we list on our website include a free cancellation policy. This means that you can cancel your car hire and receive a full refund anytime until 48 hours before you collect the vehicle.

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

We process all refunds in less than 24 hours. If you cancel your booking, the money will be in your bank account within 7 days.

Top tips to discover a deal on your 7 Seater rental

Consider the dates you're booking:

To bag yourself a deal for your rental it makes sense to book , especially during peak times like Summer holidays and easter. 7 seater hire can be in exceptionally high demand in the summer months and the availability of large vehicles is more restricted than most other types of car. If you change your mind or the price drops after you've booked your rental , we include free cancellation, so you can cancel at any point until 48 hours prior to collecting the car.

Mileage and fuel policy:

If you're shopping around for your vehicle rental on other websites, be cautious to factor in the fuel policy and mileage allowance. Many other websites hide this away in the T&Cs. If you use more than the mileage allowance or hire a 7 seater with a full to empty fuel policy, you might be hit with some unexpected fees when you drop off the car. Our site only includes full to full rentals and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Excess and Security Deposit:

Be sure to check the amount you're required to leave as a security deposit on your credit card. Often, for cheaper 7 seater rentals, you'll be required to leave a much higher security deposit, which will be held on your card when you pick up. 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. We often have special promotions, including additional drivers in the price. Where free extra drivers are available, you'll see them displayed on the search results page of our website.

Border crossing and one-way fees:

If you plan to take your 7 seater over a border into a different country, additional fees are normally charged by the car rental company. Be careful to check the T&Cs for these before you book as they can be expensive. If you can't find them on the website, get in touch with one of our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

Paying for 7 Seater hire with a debit card and other payment card options.

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.

Car rental terminology explained

Theft liability insurance (theft protection)

Theft liability cover (theft protection)
Theft liability insures the amount due if the rental car is stolen. It is subject to an excess , this means you'll have to pay the first part of any claim (normally between £700 to £1,500, depending on the car, the country and the deal.

If you choose to insure your excess , however, you will be reimbursed for the of the excess you pay (See essential cover). With Premium Cover your excess amount can be reduced to zero.

Extra driver fees

Car rental contracts is between the car hire company and the one individual who signs the contract and will be the main driver. This means you need to ask for other drivers to be added, and this usually means an additional cost ( can be up to £12a day or even more). We often list special offers that include extra drivers are free. Always be cautious of being asked if you'd like to include a driver without being informed of the price.
Extra driver fees

Hire car excess

Car Rental excess
For rentals outside of the US and Canada there's almost always an excess to pay* - just like on your own car in the UK. However, the excess on hire cars can be very high. It's normally between £1,200 to £3,000. If you fail to cover the excess you could be liable to pay for any damage to the car up to the value of the excess amount. Take a look at our Premium Cover rental car options if you'd prefer not to have the excess amount held on your card when you collect the car.

Excess Insurance

Purchasing this policy ensures you'll be reimbursed for any of the excess you have to pay to the rental car company when you drop off the car.

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

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 full to fuel fuel policy.

When you collect you rental you'll be required to hold a small deposit for fuel on your credit card when you collect the rental. Ensure that you fill the rental up and return it full and there's nothing further to pay for fuel.

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

Third party liability insurance

Third party liability insurance insures in case you cause an incident. If you do, it might kill or injure others (for instance 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 any injuries or covering loss of earnings, as well as any legal costs and any court fees.

Third party liability is subject to an excess, which means you would have to pay the first part of any claim (usually between £900 to £1,600, depending on the value of the car, the country and the deal). When you cover your excess amount, you'll be reimbursed for any or all of the excess you have to pay. If you decide to take out Premium Cover, the excess amount can be reduced .

Why Stress Free Car Rental is different

There's a wide variety of reasons why we are different from our competitors but to start, it's important to recognise that Stress Free Car Rental was born out of our personal frustration with the process of renting a vehicle.

Our technology compares millions of cheap 7 seater hire deals at 1000s of vehicle rental locations to find you amazing deals and make booking them on our website as quick, easy and Stress Free as it can be

We won't be beaten on price. Our 7 seater rental price match promise means if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower price, we'll match it.

We work to deliver our customers with all of the best 7 seater rental deals with no unexpected fees.

So, the reason we do things differently is because we got fed up of seeing customers having trips ruined by a bad rental experience and thought we could do a better job.

Our Essential insurance options

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
