We get how daunting choosing a car insurance product can be. The extra charges that are included in the price of hiring a car can be very confusing, these include:
Many car rental websites mask the insurance excess and security deposit costs 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 hinder your plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.
On our website you'll find three levels of car hire excess cover, basic, essential and premium and we help you find the hire car that suits you and your trip. You're able to review the details of these on the extras page of our website when booking your rental.
Premium insurance is the highest level of car hire insurance we provide.
Choosing Premium Insurance is completely optional, you can also opt to buy Premium Cover at the car rental desk, It is usually less expensive to book this in advance on our website when you make your car rental booking.
Many of our clients decide to choose the Premium Cover option when renting a car because it usually reduces 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 regarding which car rental insurance product is right for you, we work closely with our car rental partners to give you the ability to buy a Premium cover product.
