The hire car will be fully covered for accidents and theft included in the rental price you'll see displayed on the website. This type of insurance is also known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

Although all of our rental cars in Lord Howe Island Airport come with collision damage waiver in the price , there's also often an insurance excess, this excess is held on your credit card when you pick up 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 rental cars can be very high. It's often between £1,000 to £2,200. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you will have to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

When you pick up the rental car, the excess is held on your card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. Pre Auth means that the money isn't taken from your credit card as a regular transaction, it's held as a pending transaction until you drop off the vehicle. You won't usually have to pay currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised transactions. As long as the vehicle is dropped off in the same condition as when it was collected, the excess amount will be fully refunded to your credit card without anything further to pay.

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

Why Stress Free Car Rental is different

There's a huge amount of reasons why we're different from our rivals but to start, it's important to understand that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our frustration with the process of renting a car.

Car hire providers we list on the website include the main vehicle hire companies like Europcar and Hertz there are some firms we know will not give you the price or experience that you deserve - so we do not list these on the website.
