Top Quality Offers on Car Hire in Japan

Our Essential insurance options

As well as being friendly, easy to use and of course, stress free, we offer two different levels of insurance when you book a vehicle with us.

Our essential cover, offered at the same time as you make your vehicle booking, is a car hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a range of extra charges that standard insurance does not.

Essential cover will be available as a choice in the car hire insurance options. For some partner/geographical car rental combinations the cover might not be available.

Why we're different

There's a wide variety of reasons why we're different from our competitors but to start, it's important to understand that Stress Free Car Rental was born out of our personal frustration with the process of hiring a car.

All our pricing includes added fees that other car rental websites often don't display - this ensures that our service is as straightforward as possible.

So, the reason we do things a bit differently is because we got frustrated with seeing customers getting shortchanged and felt like we could provide a better service.

We work hard to ensure that we provide customers with all of the best car rental deals in Japan with no nasty surprises.

We won't be beaten on price. Our car hire price match promise means that if you find the same hire car at a lower cost, we'll match it.
