Low Cost Hire Cars in Barbuda with No Insurance Excess options

Collecting your Barbuda Antigua and Barbuda Car rental using a debit card and other payment card options.

Pay with Visa, Mastercard or an American Express credit card or a debit card provided by your bank or credit card company when renting a car on our website.

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

If you've opted for Basic or Essential Cover with your rental, it usually means that you will need a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You will more often than not be given the opportunity to buy a top up policy by the hire partner on collection, which then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Quite often, car rentals that come with our Premium Cover option allow you to use a debit card when you pick up the car with no extra charges. You're able to compare if a debit card is allowed, along with all of the different car rental security deposit and insurance alternatives on the second step of our website booking process.

It's worth bearing in mind that quite often car hire brands that will allow debit card on collection are not as cheap as those that accept credit card only.

One important thing to consider when deciding if you'd prefer to use a debit card at the collection desk, car hire companies frequently hold an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess is often a significant amount of money , if you opt to pay using debit card this might be debited from your account and not refunded until weeks following completion of your rental contract.

We've made it really easy on our website to filter which car rental partners do accept debit card. Simply use the filters on the search results page to compare the car hire companies can accept your card type at the collection desk.

Would you like us to accept payments using something other than credit card or debit card? Do get in touch to let us know. We're open to ideas about how we can enhance the service we offer to make booking your car hire as Stress Free as it can be.

Car rental excess, security deposits and insurance

We understand how frightening and daunting choosing a rental car insurance product can be. The extra fees that are included in the price of hiring a vehicle are often very confusing, these can include:

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

Many hire car websites mask the insurance excess and security deposit prices in the fine print. 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 wrong and can really obstruct your plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.

On our website you'll find three options for car hire excess cover, basic, essential and premium 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 booking your rental.

How to Hire a Car in Barbuda without an Insurance Excess

The car will be fully covered for theft and accidents as part of the hire fee you will see the website. This insurance is often referred to as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

All of our rental cars in Barbuda come with CDW in the price , there's usually an insurance excess, this excess is held on your credit card on collection. The insurance excess is the total amount you'd be liable to pay if the car is stolen, written off or severely damaged. However, the excess on hire cars can be very expensive. It's often between £1,000 to £2,000. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll be required to pay some or all of the excess.

When you pick up the vehicle, the excess is held on your card as something called a 'pre-auth' transaction. Pre Auth means that the money is not charged to your card as a normal payment, it's held as a pending transaction until you return the vehicle. You don't normally pay currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised payments. As long as the vehicle is dropped off in the same condition as when it was collected, the amount is fully refunded to your credit card without anything additional to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the excess amount is 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 amount is often very high, it's recommended to buy Premium Cover on our website or to buy top up insurance at the rental desk.
