Stress Free Car Rental's Premium cover

Premium insurance is the highest level of car hire insurance we provide.

So that you're able to make an informed decision regarding which car rental insurance product is right for you, we work closely with our car rental partners to give you the option to buy a Premium cover product.

Choosing Premium Insurance is completely optional, you can also opt to purchase Premium Cover at the car hire counter, It might be cheaper to buy this in advance on our website when you make your car rental booking.

Lots of our clients decide to choose the Premium Cover option when renting a vehicle because it usually reduces the excess to zero meaning that you have no large security deposit or car hire insurance excess risk. Customers can also often collect the car using debit cards with Premium Cover if using a credit card is a problem.

On our website it's possible to buy Premium Cover alongside your car rental, so that you understand the total cost of everything before starting your trip.

Picking up your Kenya Car hire with no credit card and other payment card options.

You can use a Visa, American Express or a Mastercard debit card or credit card issued by your bank or credit card company when hiring through us.

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

One thing to think about when deciding if you'd prefer to use a debit card on collection, car rental companies often hold an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, this is often a significant amount of money and if you choose to pay with a debit card this might be debited from your account and not returned until a couple of weeks following you've returned the car.

Most of the Kenya car rental partners we compare prices for will accept a debit card when you collect the rental; but some of these do have special conditions associated with them. Always be sure to check the T&Cs if you want to pick up the car using a debit card.

Don't forget that quite frequently car rental companies that do accept debit card on collection are more costly than those that accept credit card only.

You can book using a large range of currencies including British Pounds (GBP),US Dollars (USD) and South African Rand (ZAR).
