Car hire excess, security deposits and insurance

We get how daunting choosing a hire car excess cover product can be. The extra fees that are included in the price of hiring a vehicle can be very confusing, these include:

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

A lot of car hire websites mask the insurance excess and security deposit prices in the terms and conditions. Customers are then shocked when the amount is taken from their 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.

The rental car will be insured for accidents and theft included in the rental fee you'll see the website. This type of cover is often referred to as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

Although all of our hire cars in Kamaran Downs Airport come with CDW in the price displayed, there's also often an insurance excess, this excess is held on your credit card when you collect the car. The excess is the amount you'd be liable to pay if the vehicle is written off, severely damaged or stolen. The the excess amount on hire cars can be high. It's normally between £1,000 to £2,100, depending on the car, the country and the deal. If the car is returned damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll have to pay some or all of the excess.

When you pick up the rental car, the insurance excess is held on your card as a 'pre-auth' transaction. This means that the amount isn't taken from your card as a normal transaction, it's held as a pending payment until you drop off the car. You won't usually pay currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised payments. As long as the vehicle is dropped off in the same condition as when you collected it, this amount will be fully refunded to your credit card with nothing further to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the excess is taken from your account and fully refunded when the vehicle is returned. If you plan to use debit card on collection, as the excess amount can be very high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover when you book or to buy top up cover at the rental desk.
