Car Hire in Stephen Island Airport without an Excess Held on Your Credit Card

Your car will already be fully covered for accidents and theft included in the hire fee you will see displayed on our website. This insurance is often referred to as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

Although all of our rental cars in Stephen Island Airport come with collision damage waiver in the price , there's also 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'd be required to pay if the car is severely damaged, written off or stolen. However, the excess amount on hire cars can be expensive. It's normally between £950 to £2,200, 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 some or all of the excess.

When you pick up the hire car, the excess is held on your credit card as a 'pre-auth' transaction. This means that the amount is not charged to your card as a regular payment, it's held as a pending payment until you return the car. You won't usually have to pay currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions, so provided the vehicle is returned in the same condition as when you collected it, the excess amount will be fully refunded to your card with nothing further to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the excess will be taken from your bank account and fully refunded when the car is returned. If you plan 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 buy top up cover at the rental desk.

To view rental options in Stephen Island Airport with a £0 or reduced excess take a look at our Premium Cover options.
