Car Hire in Smith Point Airport with no Excess

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

All of our hire cars in Smith Point Airport include collision damage waiver in the price , there is usually an insurance excess, which is held on your credit card when you pick up the car. The insurance excess is the total amount you would be required to pay if the car is severely damaged, written off or stolen. The the excess on hire cars can be very expensive. It's often between £900 to £2,000, depending on the car, the country and the deal. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll be required to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

On collection of the hire car, the excess is held on your credit card as a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the amount is not charged to your credit card as a normal payment, it's held as a pending transaction until you drop off the car. You won't usually have to pay currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised payments, so provided the vehicle is dropped off in the same condition as when it was collected, this excess amount is fully refunded to your card without anything additional to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the insurance excess amount will be taken from your account and fully refunded when the car is returned. If you intend to use a debit card on collection, as the excess amount is often very high, we recommend to either 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 bucket load of reasons why we are different from our rivals but to start, it's important to recognise that Stress Free Car Rental was born out of our frustration with the process of hiring a car.

Stress Free Car Rental do not work with just any car hire providers. We're selective to only work with brands you can trust. provide our customers with all of the best car rental prices in Smith Point Airport Australia with no hidden fees.

Pricing on our website includes additional fees that other websites don't usually display - this makes sure that your experience is as transparent as it can be.

Car hire providers we work with include the larger car hire providers like Europcar and Hertz there are some companies we know will not give you the experience or price that you deserve - so we don't include these on our website.

Stress Free Car Rental won't be beaten on price. Our price match guarantee means if you find the same hire car at a lower price, we'll match it.

The reason we decided to do things differently to other car rental websites is because we got fed up of seeing customers being hit with unexpected fees and thought we could do a better job.

Picking up your Smith Point Airport Australia Car hire with a debit card and other ways to pay.

You can use a Visa, Mastercard or an American Express credit card or a debit card provided by your bank or credit card company when booking your rental on our website.

Quite often, car rentals that come with our Premium Cover option will allow you to use a debit card on collection without any extra charges. You can compare if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the different car hire security deposit and insurance alternatives on the extras page of the booking process.

Many of the Smith Point Airport Australia car rental partners we work with will accept a debit card when you pick up the rental; but often these do have special T&Cs related to them. Ensure that you check the T&Cs if you intend to use a debit card when you collect the car.

It's useful to know the different payment and currency options for your car hire in Smith Point Airport Australia, as often payments for extras (such as booster seats and Sat Nav) might have to be paid for in local currency (either in cash or by credit card) on collection.

If you've included Basic or Essential Cover for your rental, it usually means that you will be required to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the car. You'll more often than not be given the opportunity to buy a top up policy by the hire company when you collect the car, which then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Would you like us to accept payments using something other than credit card or debit card? Please get in touch and let us know. We are open to ideas re how to improve the service we offer to make booking your car hire a Stress Free experience.

One important thing to consider when deciding if you should use a debit card when collecting your car, car rental companies sometimes hold an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, this is often a large amount of money , if you decide to pay with a debit card this might be debited from your account and not refunded until a couple of weeks after your rental has ended.

It's worth bearing in mind that quite often car hire companies that will accept debit card at the desk are not as cost effective as car hire companies that accept credit card only.

Hassle free Essential insurance options

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

Essential cover appears as an optional extra in the car hire insurance section. For some geographical/partner car rental combinations the cover isn't always offered.

Essential cover doesn't cover things like cleaning fees, mechanical repairs, third party injury, loss of theft/damage to content in the car and other things. To view the detailed information see the terms and conditions on the extras page

Essential cover, offered when you make your vehicle booking, is a car hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a selection of additional charges that standard insurance doesn't.

Car rental excess, security deposits and insurance

We understand how intimidating picking a hire car insurance product can be. The extra fees 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, premium, essential and basic 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 the site when making a booking.

Many car rental 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 wrong and can really obstruct your plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.
