Premium insurance is the highest option for car hire cover we offer.
Choosing Premium Insurance is totally optional, you can also choose to purchase Premium Cover at the car hire desk, it's often cheaper to buy this in advance on our website when you make your car hire booking.
Many of our clients choose the Premium Cover option when they're are hiring a vehicle because it usually lowers the security deposit for the excess to zero meaning that the customer has no large security deposit or car rental insurance excess risk. Customers can also often pay with debit cards with Premium Cover if using a credit card is a problem.
We want you to be able to make an informed decision relating to which car rental insurance product is best for you, we work closely with our car rental partners to provide you the option to rent a car including a Premium cover product.

You can use a Visa, Mastercard or an American Express credit card or a debit card issued by your bank or credit card company when renting a car on our website.
It's worth bearing in mind that quite often car rental companies that do allow debit card on collection are not as cheap as car hire companies that accept credit card only.
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'll usually be given the opportunity to buy a top up policy by the hire company on collection, which then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
One important thing to consider when deciding if you should 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 might be debited from your bank and not returned until weeks following your rental has ended.

We appreciate how intimidating picking a rental car insurance product can be. The extra fees that make up the price of hiring a vehicle can be very confusing, these include:
Many car rental websites hide the expensive insurance excess and security deposit prices 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 wrong and can really obstruct your holiday plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.
