We get how daunting choosing a rental car insurance product can be. The additional fees that are included in the price of hiring a vehicle are often very confusing, these can include:
A lot of car hire websites mask the insurance excess and security deposit costs in the terms and conditions. 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 plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.
We don't call ourselves Stress Free Car Rental for nothing! Our mission is to make the vehicle hire process as easy as we can.

When searching for your rental, information you'll need:
We accept American Express, Visa or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card provided by your bank or credit card company when renting a car on our website.
Many of the Bouvet Island car hire brands we include on the website accept a debit card when you pick up the car; often these do have different conditions associated with them. Be careful to understand the contract terms if you want to use a debit card at the desk when collecting the car.
If you've chosen Basic or Essential Cover with your rental, it usually means that you will need to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You will usually be given the option to purchase a top up policy by the hire partner at the collection desk, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
It's important to consider when deciding if you want to use a debit card at the collection desk, car hire companies sometimes block an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the credit card hold can be a significant amount of money and if you opt to pay with debit card this will be debited from your bank account and not refunded until weeks after completion of your rental contract.
