We get how daunting and frightening picking a rental car insurance product can be. The extra charges that make up the price of hiring a car can be very confusing, these include:
A lot of hire car websites mask the price of insurance excess and security deposit costs in the small print. Customers are then surprised when the cash is taken from their debit card account or the amount is held on their credit card. We think this is wrong and can really hinder your holiday plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.

One important thing to consider when deciding if you want to use a debit card on collection, car rental companies frequently block an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, the hold is often a large amount of money , if you decide to pay with a debit card this can be debited from your bank and not refunded until a couple of weeks after completion of your rental contract.

You can book using a large number of currencies including British Pounds (GBP),US Dollars (USD) and South African Rand (ZAR).
Most of the Ecuador car rental companies we include on the website will accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the car; but sometimes these do have special terms and conditions related to them. Ensure that you review the terms if you plan to use a debit card at the desk when collecting the car.
If you choose Essential or Basic Cover for your car rental, it usually means that you will 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 opportunity to buy a top up policy by the rental partner when you collect the car, this then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
