Car rental insurance, excess and security deposits

We get how intimidating choosing a car insurance product can be. The extra charges that make up the price of hiring a car can be very confusing, these 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, your family and your trip. You're able to review the details of these on the extras page of our website when booking your rental.

Many hire car websites mask the costly insurance excess and security deposit costs 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 hinder your holiday plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.

Stress Free Car Rental's Premium cover option

Premium cover is the highest level of car hire cover we provide.

On our website it's possible to buy Premium Cover alongside your vehicle rental, so that you understand the exact cost of everything before starting your trip.

Lots of our customers decide to choose the Premium Cover option when they're are renting a car because it usually lowers the security deposit for the excess to zero meaning that you have no large security deposit or car rental insurance excess risk. Customers can also often pay with debit cards with Premium Cover if using a credit card is a problem.

Choosing Premium Cover is completely optional, you can also opt to buy Premium Cover at the car rental desk, It is usually cheaper to book this in advance on our website when you make your car hire booking.

So that you're able to understand all of the options regarding which car rental insurance product is best for you, we work closely with our car rental partners to give you the ability to rent a car including a Premium cover product.
