9 Seater Rental

Hassle free Essential insurance options

As well as being friendly, easy to use and of course, stress free, we offer two additional levels of insurance when you book a 9 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 doesn't.

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 details see the T&Cs on the extras page

Essential cover appears as a choice in the vehicle hire insurance options. For some geographical/partner 9 seater rental combinations the cover isn't always offered.

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

9 seater car hire Insurance :

If plan to hiring a 9 seater in the USA, arriving from overseas and have a foreign driving licence, the 9 seaters in the United States you will see listed on our website have zero excess and a low-security deposit. Most rentals in Europe and the rest of the world will require an insurance excess. You'll be offered the option to buy an insurance policy to cover the excess when you make your booking.

Top tips to discover a cheap 9 Seater rental

Consider the dates you're booking:

To find the best deals for your rental it pays to book , especially during peak times like Summer holidays and easter. 9 seater rental can be in high demand in the summer months and often the availability of larger vehicles is more restricted than most other types of rental. If the price drops after you've booked your rental with us, we offer free cancellation, so you can cancel anytime up until 48 hours prior to collecting the vehicle.

Fuel and mileage policies:

If you're looking around for your vehicle rental on different websites, be sure to factor in the fuel policy and mileage allowance. Some other websites hide this away in the terms and conditions. If you use more than your mileage allowance or rent a 9 seater with a full to empty fuel policy, you could end up 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'll have to pay as a security deposit on your card. For cheaper 9 seater rentals, you will be required to leave a more expensive security deposit, this will be held on your credit card when you collect the car. You will always see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.

Child Seats and other extras:

You can see the prices of these on the extras page. Quite often we have special deals, including extra drivers in the price. When free extra 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 plan to take your 9 seater across a border into a different country, extra fees are usually charged by the car rental company. Be sure to check the T&Cs for these before you book as they can be expensive. If you can't find them on the website, please contact one of our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

Stress Free Car Rental's Premium cover option

Premium insurance is the highest level of 9 seater hire insurance we provide.

So that you're able to make an informed decision regarding which 9 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.

Lots of our clients decide to choose the Premium Cover option when renting a 9 seater because it usually reduces the excess to zero meaning that the customer has no large security deposit or vehicle hire insurance excess risk. Customers can also often collect the vehicle using debit cards with Premium Cover if credit card is a problem.

Choosing Premium Cover is completely optional, you can also opt to buy Premium Cover at the vehicle rental counter, It can be less expensive to book this in advance on our website at the same time as you make your 9 seater rental booking.

Our website only compares 9 seaters that include a fair full to full fuel policy. You'll pick up the vehicle with a full tank and return it full. A small amount for the fuel will be held on your credit card when you collect the vehicle and refunded when you drop it off full. Beware of full to empty fuel policies you might find at a lower cost on other websites, full to empty usually means you should expect some expensive extra fees for fuel, we recommend to always check the terms and conditions for full to empty rentals.

If you're trying to find a 9 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 rental (sometimes to zero).

Car rental terminology explained

Damage Liability

Collision damage waiver (CDW)
CDW insures the car for damage in a similar way the insurance you usually have on your personal vehicle does. CDW includes an excess amount which you can choose to insure separately (See Excess reimbursement insurance). Our website also list car hire that include CDW with a zero excess

Rental car excess

For rentals outside of the US and Canada there is usually an insurance excess to pay* - just like on your own car in the UK. The excess on rental cars can be very high. It's normally between £1,100 to £2,500. If you decide not to cover the excess amount you will be liable to pay for damage up to the value of the excess . Take a look at our Premium Cover car hire options if you'd prefer not to have a large amount blocked on your credit card .
Hire car excess

Extra driver costs

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

Theft liability insurance (theft protection)

It insures the amount due if the hire car is stolen. It usually includes an excess amount, this means you'll have to pay the first part of any claim (normally between £950 to £1,500, depending on the deal, the car rental company and the location.

When you insure your excess , however, you'll be reimbursed for any of of the excess you pay (See our essential cover). Or with Premium Cover your excess amount can be reduced to zero.
Theft liability insurance (theft protection)

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)
The hire cars on the site come with a full to fuel fuel policy.

You'll be required 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 nothing further to pay for fuel.

You might see full to empty policies on some other websites that seem to be offering cheaper deals. Be sure to check the small print for full to empty rentals as usually the admin and refuelling costs included with full to empty fuel policies always make it much more expensive than full to full fuel policies.

Third party liability cover

Third party liability insurance provides protection in case you cause an accident. If you do, it might kill or injure other people (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 protected, you'd be responsible any claim, or treating 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 would have to pay the first part of any claim (normally between £1,000 to £1,600, varying dependent on the car, the country and the deal). If you choose to cover your excess , you'll be refunded for all of the excess amount you have to pay. Or if you take out Premium Cover, the excess can be reduced to zero.
Third party liability cover

Excess Insurance

Excess Insurance
Buying this policy means you'll be refunded for any of the excess that's held on your credit card by the rental car company when you drop off the car.

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

Hiring a Car with No Cancellation Fee

How to Hire a Car with Free Cancellation

All the rentals we offer include a free cancellation policy. This means that you can cancel your booking and receive a full refund at any point up until 48 hours before picking up the vehicle.

If you have purchased our Essential Cover product to cover the car rental excess, you're able to cancel this and receive a full refund up until the rental collection time.

We process all refunds in less than 24 hours. If you have to cancel your rental, this means that the money will be back in your bank account in 7 days.

How to Hire a Car with Unlimited Mileage

Our website offers unlimited and limited mileage rentals.

Limited mileage rentals can often be cheaper than unlimited. For limited mileage rentals, the mileage limit will always be clearly visibile. If you decide to book a rental including limited mileage, you'll be charged an additional fee if you exceed the daily mileage allowance. The total mileage allowance for the whole rental period is calculated as (the number of hire days X the daily allowance). You don't have to stay within the daily allowance on every day, provided that the total miles used during the rental does not 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. You can find these in our T&Cs. You can also use the search filters on our website to display car hire including unlimited mileage which will save you money if you're planning a longer trip

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

Renting a Car with no Insurance Excess

The insurance excess is the amount you would be required to pay if the vehicle is written off, severely damaged or stolen. However, the excess on hire cars can be high. It's normally between £800 to £2,100, depending on the car, the country and the deal. If the car is returned 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 hire car, the excess is held on your credit card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the money isn't charged to your credit card as a regular payment, it's held as a pending payment until you return the car. You won't normally have to pay currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised payments. As long as the rental car is dropped off in the same condition as when it was collected, the excess amount will be fully refunded to your credit card without anything additional to pay.

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

To view car hire options with a £0 or reduced insurance excess check out our Premium Cover rental options.

How to Hire a Car with One Way Fees included

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

Hiring a Car with Child Seats or booster seats

You're allowed to take along your own child seats and booster seats for your car rental, provided that they meet all of the legal safety requirements for use in your car hire location.

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

How to Rent a Car with Child Seats

We also compare car hire deals at 1000s of locations that accept a debit card on collection.

How to Rent a Car and Cross Border Fees

If you'd like to pick up your rental and drive it across the border into a different country, be sure to check the terms and conditions. Many car hire providers require that you let them know when you collect the car; and usually charge extra fees to top up your 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 can find the information relating to cross border policies by checking the Rental terms and viewing the Cross Border Rules section.

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

Hiring a Car and Cross Border Fees

How to Rent a Car with a Reduced Security Deposit

Renting a Car with a Reduced Security Deposit

At the collection desk, you will usually be asked to leave a security deposit on your credit card or debit card. Security deposits can vary significantly subject to the make and model of the car and the excess amount. Car rental 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 book a rental with Premium Cover included, you can reduce the deposit to cover only fuel (often less than £100), which is fully refunded to your card when the car is dropped off with a full tank.

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 was born out of our personal frustration with the process of hiring a vehicle.

All our pricing includes added fees that other websites often don't display - this makes sure that our process is as straightforward as it can be.

Stressfreecarrental.com work hard to ensure that we provide customers with all of the best 9 seater rental prices with no hidden fees.

Stress Free Car Rental won't be beaten on price. Our 9 seater hire price match promise means if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower price, we'll match it.

Stress Free Car Rental compares millions of 9 seater hire prices at 1000s of vehicle hire locations to source great offers and make booking them on our website as easy, quick and Stress Free as possible

Picking up your 9 Seater hire with no credit card and other payment card options.

You can use a American Express, Visa or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card provided by a bank or credit card company when booking your 9 seater on our website.

We've made it incredibly easy on our website to view which 9 seater rental brands will accept a debit card. Just use the filters on the second page to compare the 9 seater rental companies will accept your preferred card type at the counter.

Don't forget that often 9 seater hire partners that will accept debit card at the desk are more expensive than 9 seater hire companies that accept credit card only.

It is practical to know the payment and currency options for your 9 seater hire, as some payments for extras (such as extra drivers and sat nav) might need to be paid in the local currency (either in cash or by credit card) at the collection desk.

You can book using a number of different currencies including US Dollars (USD), British Pounds (GBP), Euros (EUR), South African Rand (ZAR) and Canadian Dollars (CAD).

Would you like us to take payment using something other than credit card or debit card? Feel free to get in touch and let us know. We are open to new ideas re how to enhance our service to make paying for your vehicle rental a Stress Free experience.

Very often, 9 seater rentals that come with the Premium Cover option will allow you to use a debit card on collection without any extra fees. You can view if a debit card is allowed, along with all of the vehicle rental excess and insurance options on the extras page of our website booking process.

It's important to consider when deciding if you'd like to use a debit card when collecting your 9 seater, 9 seater rental companies sometimes block an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess can be a significant amount of money and if you choose to pay using debit card this can be debited from your bank and not returned until weeks following you've returned the vehicle.

Most of the 9 seater hire brands we work with will accept a debit card when you pick up the 9 seater; but sometimes these do have different terms and conditions associated with them. Be sure that you review the terms and conditions if you'd like to pick up the 9 seater using a debit card.
