If you fail to do so, it's possible that your rental will not be insured if you take the rental into a different country.

How to Rent a Car in Stawell Airport with no Insurance Excess

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

Although all of our rentals in Stawell Airport include collision damage waiver in the price displayed, there's also usually an insurance excess, this excess is held on your credit card when you pick up the car. The excess is the amount you would be required to pay if the car is stolen, written off or severely damaged. However, the excess amount on rental cars can be high. It's often between £900 to £2,200. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll have to pay some or all of the excess.

On collection of the hire car, the excess is held on your credit card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the amount is not taken from your credit card as a regular transaction, it's held as a pending transaction until you return the vehicle. You don't usually have to pay foreign currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised payments. As long as the car is returned in the same condition as when it was collected, this excess amount will be fully refunded to your card without anything further to pay.

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

Renting a Car in Stawell Airport with Unlimited Mileage

Our website offers both limited and unlimited mileage rental.

Limited mileage rentals in Stawell Airport can often be a cheaper option than unlimited. For limited mileage rentals, the mileage limit will always be clearly displayed. If you decide to book a rental with limited mileage, you'll be charged an additional fee if you go above the daily mileage allowance. The total mileage allowance for the whole rental duration is calculated as (the number of rental days X the daily mileage allowance). You don't have to remain within the daily limit on every day, provided that the total miles used throughout the rental doesn't exceed the number of days multiplied by the daily allowance.

If you opt for a limited mileage car hire, it's receommended to check the fees for excess mileage. You can find these in our term and conditions section.

Stress Free Essential insurance options

Along with being easy to use, friendly and of course, stress free, we offer two different levels of insurance when you hire a car with us.

Essential Cover includes fire, weather, theft, damage caused to the vehicle, flushing the engine after misfuelling, key cover and more.

Essential cover will appear as an option in the car hire insurance options. For some partner/geographical car rental combinations the cover isn't always offered.

Our essential cover, offered when you make your car hire booking, is a car hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a range of extra costs that standard insurance doesn't.

Car hire excess, security deposits and insurance

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

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

A lot of hire car websites hide the insurance excess and security deposit prices in the terms and conditions. Customers are then shocked when the amount is taken from the debit card account or the amount is held on their credit card. We think this is wrong and can really hinder your plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.
