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.
Pay with Visa, American Express or a Mastercard debit card or credit card issued by your bank or credit card company when hiring through us.
It's ridiculously simple on the website to identify which car hire companies will accept a debit card. Simply use the filters on the search results page to compare the car hire partners will accept your preferred card type at the collection desk.
If you choose Basic or Essential Cover for your car rental, this usually means that you'll have to have a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You will more often than not be given the opportunity to buy a top up policy by the rental company when you collect the car, this then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
Stress Free Car Rental accepts a large range of currencies including British Pounds (GBP),US Dollars (USD) and South African Rand (ZAR).
