There's a wide variety of reasons why we are different from our competitors but to start, it's important to understand that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our frustration with the process of renting a car.
Stress Free Car Rental won't be beaten on price. Our car rental price match promise means that if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower price, we'll match it.
The reason we decided to do things differently is because we got frustrated with seeing people being hit with unexpected fees and felt like we could provide a more transparent service.
Car hire providers we work with include big vehicle hire companies like Europcar and Hertz there are some firms we know will not give you the price or experience that you deserve - so we do not list these on our website.
