Car rental excess, security deposits and insurance

We get how intimidating picking a hire car excess cover product can be. The fees that make up the price of hiring a car are often very confusing, these can include:

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

Many car hire websites mask the price of insurance excess and security deposit prices in the small print. 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 unfair and can really obstruct your holiday plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.

On our website you'll find three levels of car hire excess cover, basic, essential and premium and we help you find the hire car that suits you and your trip. You can review the details of these on the extras page of the site when making a booking.

Renting a Car in Georgetown with no Insurance Excess

How to Rent a Car in Georgetown with zero Insurance Excess Held on Your Credit Card

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

Although all of our rental cars in Georgetown come with CDW in the price displayed, there's often an insurance excess, which is held on your credit card when you collect the car. The insurance excess is the amount you would be required to pay if the car is written off, severely damaged or stolen. The the excess on hire cars can be very expensive. It's often between £950 to £3,000, 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 some or all of the excess.

When you arrive to collect the vehicle, the excess is held on your card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. Pre Auth means that the money is not charged to your credit card as a normal transaction, it's held as a pending payment until you return the vehicle. You won't normally have to pay currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions, so provided the vehicle is dropped off in the same condition as when it was collected, the excess amount will be fully refunded to your credit 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 vehicle is returned. If you intend to use debit card on collection, as the excess amount is often high, it's recommended to buy Premium Cover on our website or to buy top up cover at the collection desk.
