Why we're different

There's a huge amount of reasons why we are different from our competitors but to start, it's important to understand that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our frustration with the process of renting a car.

We do not work with just any car rental firms. We're selective to only work with car rental companies you can trust.

The reason we decided to do things differently to other car rental websites is because we got frustrated with seeing people being hit with unexpected charges and thought we could do a better job.

Stress Free Car Rental won't be beaten on price. Our price match promise means that if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower price, we'll match it.

Car hire providers we list on the website include big vehicle hire companies like Enterprise and Europcar there are some companies we know will not give you the experience or price that you deserve - so we do not include these on our website.

Pricing includes added fees that other websites don't usually include - this makes sure that our process is as transparent as possible.

How to Rent a Car in Port Augusta with No Security Deposit

When you collect the car, you'll often be required to leave a security deposit on a debit card or credit card. Security deposits vary significantly subject to the make and model of the vehicle and the insurance excess amount. Car hire Security deposits in Port Augusta can range between £0 and £2,500.

We compare all of the car hire options with a low security deposit and in some instances no deposit at all except for fuel. If you choose to book a rental in Port Augusta with Premium Cover included, you're often able to reduce the deposit to cover only fuel (usually less than £100), this is refunded when the car is dropped off with a full tank.

How to hire a car without a credit card

You can pay for your car hire on our website using any credit or debit card, including Visa, Mastercard or American Express. We also compare car hire deals at 1000s of locations that accept a debit card on collection. You can quickly and easily find these by using the filters on the search results page or taking a look at our Premium Cover options on the extras page.

Car Hire in Port Augusta with Cross Border Fees Included

If you'd like to pick up your vehicle in Port Augusta and drive it across the border into a different country, we strongly recommend to review the terms and conditions. Many car rental providers insist that you let them know on collection; and will charge extra fees to top up the insurance. If you fail to do so, it's possible that the rental car will not be insured if you take the rental into a different country.

You can find the information relating to cross border policies by clicking Rental terms and checking the Cross Border Rules section.

Renting a Car in Port Augusta with no Excess Held on Your Card

Your car will be fully covered for accidents and theft as part of the hire fee you will see displayed on our website. This type of insurance is known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

Although all of our rentals in Port Augusta include collision damage waiver in the price displayed, there is also often an insurance excess, this excess is held on your credit card when you collect the car. The insurance excess is the total amount you'd be liable to pay if the vehicle is written off, severely damaged or stolen. However, the excess on rental cars can be expensive. It's often between £900 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'll have to pay some or all of the excess.

When you arrive to collect the rental car, the insurance excess is held on your card as a 'pre-auth' transaction. This means that the money is not taken from your credit card as a regular payment, it's held as a pending transaction until you return the vehicle. You won't usually pay foreign currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions, so provided the car is returned in the same condition as when you collected it, this excess amount is fully refunded to your card with nothing additional to pay.

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

Car hire excess, security deposits and insurance

We understand how frightening picking a car insurance product can be. The extra 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

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 the site when making a booking.

A lot of hire car websites hide the expensive insurance excess and security deposit prices in the terms and conditions. Customers are then shocked when the cash is taken from their debit card account or the amount is held on their credit card. We think this is wrong and can really obstruct your holiday plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.
