Comparison of the best Car Rental Packages in Antarctica

Car rental excess, security deposits and insurance

We understand how frightening picking a car insurance product can be. The fees that make up the price of hiring a car are often very confusing, these can include:

  • The cost of hiring the vehicle
  • Any extras (e.g. child car seats & sat nav)
  • Insurance costs

Stress Free Car Rental offers three options for car hire excess cover, premium, essential and basic and we help you find the hire car that suits you, your family and your trip. You can review the details of these on the extras page of the site when making a booking.

Many car rental websites hide the price of insurance excess and security deposit prices in the terms and conditions. Customers are then surprised when the cash is taken from the debit card account or the amount is held on their credit card. We think this is unfair and can really obstruct your holiday plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.

Frequently, car rentals that include the Premium Cover option allow you to use a debit card when you pick up the car with no extra fees. You can review if a debit card is allowed, along with the different car hire security deposit and insurance alternatives on the second step of our website booking process.

It's useful to understand the alternative currency and payment options for your car rental in Antarctica, as some payments for extras (such as GPS and extra drivers) might need to be paid for in local currency (by credit card or debit card) at the rental car collection desk.

If you choose Essential or Basic Cover with your rental, this usually means that you will be required to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You will usually be given the option to buy a top up policy by the hire partner on collection, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Many of the Antarctica car hire companies we include accept a debit card when you pick up the car; but some of these do have different conditions related to them. Ensure that you review the terms if you intend to use a debit card at the desk when collecting the car.

It's worth bearing in mind that often car rental brands that will allow debit card on collection are more expensive than car hire companies that accept credit card only.

We accept a huge number of currencies including Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Australian Dollars (AUD).

One thing to think about when deciding if you'd prefer to use a debit card at the collection desk, car hire companies sometimes block an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess can be a large amount of money , if you opt to pay using debit card this will be debited from your bank account and not returned until a couple of weeks following completion of your rental contract.

Would you like us to allow you to pay using something other than debit card and credit card? Do get in touch to let us know. We're open to new ideas re how we can enhance our service and make booking your car hire as Stress Free as it can be.
