Car rental insurance, excess and security deposits

We understand how frightening choosing a hire car excess cover 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

Stress Free Car Rental offers three options for car hire excess cover, basic, essential and premium and we help you find the hire car that suits you and your trip. You're able to view the details of these on the extras page of our website when booking your rental.

Many car rental websites mask the price of insurance excess and security deposit costs in the terms and conditions. Customers are then shocked when the amount 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.
