Frequently, car rentals that come with our Premium Cover option allow you to use a debit card on collection without any extra fees. You can review if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the different car rental excess and insurance options on the extras page of the booking process.
One thing to think about when deciding if you should use a debit card at the collection desk, car rental companies frequently block 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 will be debited from your account and not returned until weeks after your rental has ended.
Most of the Poland car hire brands we include on the website will accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the car; but some of these do have special T&Cs associated with them. Always be sure to review the T&Cs if you want to use a debit card when you collect the car.
We've made it ridiculously easy on our website to filter which car rental partners can accept a debit card. Simply use the filters on the search results page to compare which car hire companies will accept your preferred card type when you pick up the car.
It is practical to know the alternative payment and currency options for your car hire in Poland, as 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) at the rental car collection desk.
You can book using a range of currencies including Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Australian Dollars (AUD).
When you opt to include Basic or Essential Cover with your rental, it usually means that you will need 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 when you collect the car, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
Don't forget that often car hire brands that will accept debit card at the desk are more costly than those that accept credit card only.

If you've bought Premium excess cover on our website or have a different insurance policy, always make time to check the vehicle for damage. We advise taking photographs with your phone of each panel of the car. If damage exists on the car that is not highlighted in your rental agreement you should report this to the car rental provider
Beside the exterior, we also recommend documenting all damage to the inside of the vehicle and reporting it to the car hire company prior to starting your trip
Be sure to double check the fuel type for the vehicle and inspect which side of the car the filler cap is on
All the vehicles displayed on our website include a full to full fuel policy. You should check that the fuel tank is full before you set off. if you find that it isn't you should inform the rental company immediately

Remember to inspect alloy wheels and door locks for damage as well. Locks and wheels are easy to miss when you are in a rush to start your trip

There's a huge amount of reasons why we are different from our rivals but to start, it's important to understand that Stress Free Car Rental was born out of our frustration with the process of renting a car.
