Car hire excess, security deposits and insurance

We appreciate how intimidating picking a car excess cover product can be. The additional charges that are included in the price of hiring a car can be very confusing, these include:

  • The cost of hiring the vehicle
  • Any extras (e.g. child car seats & sat nav)
  • Insurance costs

Stress Free Car Rental offers three levels of car hire excess cover, premium, essential and basic and we help you find the hire car that suits you, your family and your trip. You're able to view the details of these on the extras page of the site when making a booking.

A lot of car hire websites hide the insurance excess and security deposit prices in the small print. Customers are then surprised when the amount is taken from their debit card account or the amount is held on their credit card. We think this is unfair and can really hinder your plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.

Picking up your Egypt Car hire with a debit card and other payment options.

You can pay with American Express, Visa or a Mastercard debit card or credit card provided by a bank or credit card company when hiring a car on our website.

Would you prefer us to take payment with a method other than credit card or debit card? Feel free to contact us and let us know. We're always open to ideas re how we can improve the service we offer and make paying for your car rental a Stress Free experience.

It is practical to know the payment options for your car rental in Egypt, as often payments for extras (such as extra drivers and child seats) might need to be paid in the local currency (either in cash or by credit card) on collection.

If you've included Essential or Basic Cover for your car rental, this 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'll more often than not be given the option to purchase a top up policy by the rental company on collection, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

You can book using a number of different currencies including Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Australian Dollars (AUD).

Driving your car rental in Egypt

Prior to setting off take some time to familiarise yourself with the vehicle and its controls. This is very important if you normally drive a manual gearbox on the other side of the road.

If you're planning to leave the car at a different location to the place you collected it from, any extra one way charges are already included in the pricing detailed on the site.

Sometimes it's daunting the first time you hire a car in a different country, just relax and you'll soon find yourself used to the differences. Enjoy your vacation

When driving on the opposite side than you're used to be cautious with road circles.

If you receive a parking or speeding fine when driving in Egypt the vehicle rental provider might deduct this amount from the credit card you have on record. If this happens you'll be informed via email when this has been processed

it can be a good idea to keep some change ready in the car to pay for tolls. Many tolls will accept cards but it's better to have loose change just in case
