Car rental insurance, excess and security deposits

We get how intimidating choosing a rental car insurance product can be. The extra charges that are included in the price of hiring a vehicle can be 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 levels of car hire excess cover, basic, essential and premium and we help you find the hire car that suits you and your trip. You can review the details of these on the extras page of our website when booking your rental.

Many car hire websites mask the 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 plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.

Hassle free Essential insurance options

As well as being friendly, easy to use and of course, stress free, we offer two different levels of insurance when you book a vehicle with us.

Essential cover doesn't cover things like loss of theft/damage to content in the car, third party injury mechanical repairs, cleaning fees. For more details see the T&Cs on the extras page of the website

Essential cover appears as a choice in the car hire insurance options. For some partner/geographical car rental combinations the cover might not be available.

Essential Cover comes with key cover, flushing the engine after misfuelling, damage caused to the vehicle, theft, weather and fire and much more.

Essential cover, offered at the same time as you make your vehicle booking, is a car hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a range of extra charges that standard insurance does not.

Driving advice for your car hire at Australia Hamilton Island Airport

When driving in a different country many countries have very strict regulations regarding alcohol consumption when driving. To avoid any issues, we strongly recommend not to drink any alcohol at all when driving your rental

If you intend to drive across a border into another country, be careful to check the T&Cs for any cross border fees and to let the car rental company know. If you don't there is a possibility that the cars insurance will not be valid if you're involved in an accident or the car is stolen

Driving in Australia Hamilton Island Airport is on the left hand side of the road

it can be a good idea to keep some loose change available in the vehicle to pay for toll roads. most toll roads will accept credit cards but it's always safer to have cash just in case

When driving on the opposite side than you're used to be extra careful of traffic circles. Always navigate roundabouts in a clockwise direction, giving priority to vehicles already on the roundabout to the right.

If you'd like to drop off the car in a alternative place to the location you picked it up from, all extra one way fees will be included in the pricing detailed on our website.

Your rental car will be fully insured for accidents and theft included in the hire fee you'll see the website. This type of cover is also known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).
