Car hire excess, security deposits and insurance

We appreciate how daunting and frightening picking a hire car excess cover product can be. The additional fees that are included in the price of hiring a car can be very confusing, these include:

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

Stress Free Car Rental offers three options for car hire excess cover, premium, essential and basic and we help you find the hire car that suits you and your trip. You can view the details of these on the extras page of our website when making a booking.

A lot of car rental websites hide the expensive insurance excess and security deposit costs in the small print. 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 unfair and can really obstruct your plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.
