There's a bucket load of reasons why we're different from our rivals but to start, it's important to recognise that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our own frustration with the process of renting a car.
The reason we decided to do things differently to other car rental websites is because we got fed up of seeing people having trips ruined by a bad car rental experience and thought we could do a better job.

Stress Free Car Rental won't be beaten on price. Our price match guarantee means if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower cost, we'll match it.
Car hire providers we list on the website include the main car hire companies like Hertz and Enterprise there are some companies we know will not give you the experience or price that you deserve - so we don't include these on our website.

If you have bought Essential excess cover on our web site or you have a different insurance policy, always take some time to check the vehicle for damage. Also spend some time taking photos on your phone of each part of the car. If there is damage on the car that isn't mentioned in your hire agreement you must inform the car rental provider
Spending some time to take photos and report any damage, whether internal or external, will help to avoid any issues with the car rental provider when you return the car

We accept Visa, Mastercard or an American Express credit card or a debit card provided by your bank or credit card company when hiring through us.
Quite often, car rentals that come with our Premium Cover option will enable you to use a debit card when you pick up the car with no additional fees. You can review if a debit card is allowed, along with all of the car rental security deposit and insurance alternatives on the extras page of the booking process.
If you've chosen Basic or Essential Cover for your car rental, it usually means that you'll be required to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You will usually be given the opportunity to buy a top up policy by the hire company when you collect the car, this then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
One important thing to consider when deciding if you should use a debit card on collection, car hire companies often block an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess can be a considerable amount of money , if you decide to pay with a debit card this will be debited from your bank and not refunded until weeks following your rental has ended.
We accept a huge range of currencies including British Pounds (GBP),US Dollars (USD) and South African Rand (ZAR).
It's worth bearing in mind that quite often car hire companies that do allow debit card on collection are more expensive than car hire companies that accept credit card only.
