Car hire excess, security deposits and insurance

We appreciate how daunting choosing a hire car excess cover product can be. The extra fees that are included in the price of hiring a car can be very confusing, these can include:

  • The cost of hiring the vehicle
  • Any extras (e.g. child car seats & sat nav)
  • Insurance costs

Stress Free Car Rental offers three options for car hire excess cover, premium, essential and basic and we help you find the hire car that suits you, your family and your trip. You can review the details of these on the extras page of our website when booking your rental.

A lot of hire car websites hide the costly insurance excess and security deposit costs in the terms and conditions. Customers are then shocked when the amount 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 plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.
