There's a bucket load of reasons why we're different from our competitors but to start, it's important to recognise that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our own frustration with the process of hiring a car.
The reason we do things a bit differently is because we got fed up of seeing people getting shortchanged and felt like we could do a better job.
Our website compares millions of cheap car hire deals at 1000s of car hire locations to find you amazing deals and make booking them on the website as easy, quick and Stress Free as possible
Brands we work with include big car hire companies like Enterprise and Hertz there are some companies we know will not give you the price or experience that you deserve - so we don't include these on our website.
Pricing on our website includes added fees that other websites don't usually display - this makes sure that your experience is as transparent as it can be.
We don't like to work with just any car rental providers. We're careful to only work with brands you can trust.
Stress Free Car Rental work hard to ensure that we provide our customers with all of the best car hire deals in Barbados with no hidden fees.
As well as being friendly, easy to use and of course, stress free, we offer two additional levels of insurance when you hire a vehicle with us.
Essential cover will appear as a choice in the car hire insurance options. For some geographical/partner car rental combinations the cover isn't always available.
Essential Cover includes fire, weather, theft, damage caused to the vehicle, flushing the engine after misfuelling, key cover and much more.
Our essential cover, offered when you make your vehicle booking, is a car hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a range of additional costs that standard insurance does not.
We aim to be the best car rental website around so that you know when you book through us you're getting the best value, service and price.
All of the rentals on our website include all extra fees including anything that you're required to pay when you pick up the car, including (but not limited to) one way fees, extras and senior driver fees.
When searching for your rental, information you'll need:
Booking a holiday, let alone renting a car, can be a stressful, surprisingly costly, experience which is why our clever matching technology will find you your perfect hire car at your dream price.
To start your stress free booking process, head over to our homepage and input the required details then in just a few seconds we'll bring up some brilliant deals based on your information.
You can pay with Visa, Mastercard or an American Express credit card or a debit card provided by your bank or credit card company when booking your rental on our website.
It's really easy on our website to identify which car hire brands will accept debit card. Simply use the filters on the second page to compare which car hire brands can accept your preferred card type at the counter.
If you've included Basic or Essential Cover for your car rental, it often means that you'll need to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the car. You'll more often than not be given the option to pay for a top up policy by the rental company at the collection desk, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
Many of the Barbados car rental partners we compare prices for will accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the car; sometimes these do have special T&Cs related to them. Ensure that you review the terms and conditions if you'd like to use a debit card when you collect the car.
One important thing to consider when deciding if you'd prefer to use a debit card on collection, car rental companies frequently block an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the credit card hold is often a large amount of money , if you choose to pay using debit card this might be debited from your bank and not returned until a couple of weeks following your rental has ended.
We accept a huge number of currencies including British Pounds (GBP),US Dollars (USD) and South African Rand (ZAR).
We get how frightening picking a hire car excess cover product can be. The extra fees that are included in the price of hiring a vehicle can be very confusing, these include:
A lot of car rental websites mask the price of insurance excess and security deposit costs 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 wrong and can really obstruct your plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.
We work diligently to make sure that the prices you see on our website for your car rental include all costs. Including anything you need to pay when you collect the car in Barbados
