Why we're different

There's a wide variety of reasons why we're different from our competitors but to start, it's important to recognise that Stress Free Car Rental was born out of our own frustration with the process of hiring a car.

So, the reason we do things a bit differently is because we got fed up of seeing customers getting shortchanged and thought we could provide a better service.

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

We work hard to ensure that we provide our customers with all of the best car rental deals in Darnley Island Australia with no hidden fees.

All our pricing includes additional fees that other car rental websites don't usually display - this makes sure that your experience is as clear-cut as possible.

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 Darnley Island with zero Insurance Excess Held on Your Credit Card

The hire car will be fully covered for theft and accidents as part of the hire price you'll see our website. This insurance is often referred to as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

All of our hire cars in Darnley Island include collision damage waiver in the price displayed, there's usually an insurance excess, which is held on your credit card on collection. The insurance excess is the total amount you would be liable to pay if the car is severely damaged, written off or stolen. However, the excess on rental cars can be very high. It's often between £1,000 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 will be required to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

On collection of the hire car, the insurance excess is held on your credit card as something called a 'pre-auth' transaction. This means that the money isn't taken from your credit card as a normal transaction, it's held as a pending payment until you return the car. You don't normally have to pay currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised transactions, so provided the car is dropped off in the same condition as when you collected it, this amount will be fully refunded to your card with nothing further to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the insurance excess amount is taken from your bank account and refunded when the car is dropped off. If you intend to use a debit card on collection, as the excess is often high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover when you book or to buy top up insurance at the collection desk.

To view car hire options in Darnley Island with a £0 or reduced insurance excess review our Premium Cover options.
