Hiring a Car in Swan Hill without an Excess Held on Your Card

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

All of our hire cars in Swan Hill 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'd be liable to pay if the vehicle is written off, severely damaged or stolen. However, the excess on hire cars can be very high. It's normally between £850 to £2,000. 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 rental car, the excess is held on your credit card as a 'pre-auth' transaction. This means that the amount isn't charged to your credit card as a normal transaction, it's held as a pending payment until you return the car. You won't normally pay currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions. As long as the car is dropped off in the same condition as when it was collected, this excess amount is fully refunded to your credit card without anything additional to pay.

If you intend to pay for your rental by debit card, the insurance excess is taken from your account and fully refunded when the vehicle is returned. If you intend to use debit card on collection, as the excess is often very high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover when you book or to pay for top up cover at the collection desk.

Car rental excess, security deposits and insurance

We appreciate how frightening and daunting picking a rental car insurance product can be. The additional fees that make up the price of hiring a vehicle 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.

Many car rental websites hide the expensive insurance excess and security deposit prices in the small print. Customers are then surprised when the cash 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 won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.
