Car Hire in Southern Cross with no Excess Held on Your Card

Your car will be fully insured for accidents and theft as part of the rental fee you will see displayed on the website. This type of cover is also known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

Although all of our hire cars in Southern Cross include CDW in the price displayed, there is also usually an insurance excess, which is held on your credit card when you pick up the car. The excess is the total amount you would be required to pay if the car is stolen, written off or severely damaged. However, the excess amount on hire cars can be high. It's often between £950 to £2,000, depending on the car, the country and the deal. If the car is returned damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll be required to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

On collection of the rental car, the excess is held on your card as a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the money is not taken from your card as a normal payment, it's held as a pending transaction until you drop off the vehicle. You won't normally have to pay currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised payments. As long as the vehicle is returned in the same condition as when you collected it, this amount will be fully refunded to your card without anything additional to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the excess is 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 is often high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover when you book or to pay for top up insurance at the rental desk.

If you'd like to hire a car in Southern Cross with a £0 or reduced insurance excess take a look at our Premium Cover rental options.

How to Hire a Car in Southern Cross with Child Seats or booster seats

How to Hire a Car in Southern Cross with One Way Fees included

Many of the vehicle rental providers we include in Southern Cross allow you to collect your car in Southern Cross and drop off the vehicle at a different location.

You'll also see a full breakdown of the additional fees on the payment page.

How to Rent a Car in Southern Cross with a Low Security Deposit

When you collect the car, you'll usually be required to leave a security deposit on your credit card or debit card. The security deposit vary significantly subject to the size of the car and the excess amount. Car rental Security deposits in Southern Cross can vary between £50 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 reserve a rental in Southern Cross with Premium Cover included, you're often able to reduce your deposit to cover only fuel (usually less than £100), which is refunded when the vehicle is dropped off with a full tank.

Why we're different

There's a huge amount of reasons why we're different from our rivals 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.

Our technology collects millions of car hire deals at 1000s of car hire locations to source low cost offers and ensure that booking them on our website as quick, easy and Stress Free as it can be

We provide customers with all of the best car rental deals in Southern Cross Australia with no unexpected fees.

We do not work with just any car hire providers. We're careful to only work with car rental companies you can trust.

Pricing includes extra fees that other car rental websites don't usually display - this ensures that our process is as straightforward as possible.

So, the reason we do things differently to other car rental websites is because we got frustrated with seeing customers getting shortchanged and felt like we could provide a better service.

Car hire insurance, excess and security deposits

We understand how daunting picking a car excess cover product can be. The charges 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

You can pay with Visa, American Express or a Mastercard debit card or credit card issued by a bank or credit card company when hiring a car on our website.

Most of the Southern Cross Australia car hire partners we include will accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the rental; but some of these do have special terms and conditions associated with them.
