Why Stress Free Car Rental is different

There's a huge amount of reasons why we're different from our competitors but to start, it's important to understand that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our own frustration with the process of hiring a car.

Car hire providers we list on the website include big vehicle hire companies like Enterprise and Hertz there are some firms we know will not give you the experience or price that you deserve - so we don't list these on the website.

Stress Free Car Rental's Premium cover option

Car rental insurance, excess and security deposits

We understand how intimidating picking a rental car insurance product can be. The charges 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, basic, essential and premium 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 our website when making a booking.

Many hire car websites mask the insurance excess and security deposit costs 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 hinder your holiday plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.

Picking up your Cocos Keeling Islands Car rental with no credit card and other payment options.

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

You'll usually be given the opportunity to buy a top up policy by the rental partner on collection, which then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

One thing to think about when deciding if you'd prefer to use a debit card at the collection desk, car hire companies often hold an excess on the lead drivers credit card, this can be a considerable amount of money , if you decide to pay using debit card this will be debited from your bank and not returned until a couple of weeks after you've returned the car.
