It's worth bearing in mind that often car hire brands that do allow debit card at the desk are more expensive than those that accept credit card only.

Be careful when deciding if you should use a debit card on collection, 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 decide to pay using debit card this can be debited from your bank account and not returned until a couple of weeks following your rental has ended.

We accept a huge range of currencies including British Pounds (GBP),US Dollars (USD) and South African Rand (ZAR).

If you've opted for Basic or Essential Cover with your car rental, it often means that you will need to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the car. You will usually be given the opportunity to buy a top up policy by the hire company at the collection desk, which then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Hiring a Car in Hook Island Airport with zero Insurance Excess Held on Your Credit Card

How to Hire a Car in Hook Island Airport with no Insurance Excess Held on Your Card

Your car will already be covered for theft and accidents included in the hire price you'll see displayed on our website. This insurance is known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

Although all of our rental cars in Hook Island Airport come with CDW in the price , there's also usually an insurance excess, this excess is held on your credit card when you collect the car. The excess is the amount you'd be required to pay if the vehicle is stolen, written off or severely damaged. The the excess amount on hire cars can be expensive. It's normally between £900 to £2,100. If the car is returned damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you will be required to pay some or all of the excess.

When you arrive to collect the rental car, the insurance excess is held on your card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the amount isn't taken from your card as a regular transaction, it's held as a pending payment until you return the car. You don't normally pay currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions, so provided the vehicle is dropped off in the same condition as when it was collected, this amount will be fully refunded to your card without anything additional to pay.

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

Car rental excess, security deposits and insurance

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

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

Many car hire websites hide the insurance excess and security deposit prices in the small print. Customers are then shocked 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 plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.

On our website you'll find three levels of 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 booking your rental.
