Collecting your Russia Car rental using a debit card and other payment card options.

We accept Visa, Mastercard or an American Express credit card or a debit card issued by a bank or credit card company when renting a car on our website.

One important thing to consider when deciding if you'd like to use a debit card when collecting your car, car hire companies frequently block an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, the credit card hold can be a large amount of money and if you choose to pay using a debit card this can be debited from your bank and not refunded until weeks after you've returned the car.

It's worth bearing in mind that quite often car rental companies that will allow debit card on collection are more costly than those that accept credit card only.

Would you like us to accept payments using something other than debit card and credit card? Please get in touch to let us know. We're open to new ideas about how we can improve our service to make paying for your car rental a Stress Free experience.

Quite often, car rentals that include the Premium Cover option will allow you to use a debit card when you pick up the car with no extra fees. You can compare if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the car hire excess and insurance options on the extras page of our booking process.

We've made it really easy on the website to identify which car rental companies can accept a debit card. Simply use the filters on the search results page to compare which car rental brands will accept your preferred card type at the counter.

If you choose Essential or Basic Cover for your rental, this usually means that you will need a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You'll usually be given the opportunity to purchase a top up policy by the rental company at the collection desk, which then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Many of the Russia car rental companies we work with accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the car; but often these do have special terms and conditions related with them. Be sure that you check the terms and conditions if you plan to pick up the car using a debit card.

It's useful to understand the different currency and payment options for your car rental in Russia, as payments for extras (like Sat Nav and child seats) might have to be paid in the local currency (by credit card or debit card) on collection.

Stress Free Car Rental's Premium cover

Premium cover is the highest level of car hire cover we offer.

You're able to buy Premium Cover alongside your vehicle rental, so that you know the total cost of everything before starting your trip.

Choosing Premium Insurance is completely optional, you can also choose to purchase Premium Cover at the car rental desk, it's often cheaper to book this in advance on our website at the same time as you make your car hire booking.

Many of our customers decide to choose the Premium Cover option when they're are hiring 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 pay with debit cards with Premium Cover if using a credit card is a problem.

Why Stress Free Car Rental is different

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

Brands we list on the website include the main vehicle hire companies like Enterprise and Europcar there are some companies we know will not give you the experience or price that you deserve - so we don't include these on our website.

Stress Free Car Rental don't like to work with just any car hire firms. We're cautious to only work with car rental companies you can trust.

Pricing includes extra fees that other car hire websites often don't include - this makes sure that your experience is as transparent as possible.

Our website checks millions of car hire prices at 1000s of car rental locations to find you the best offers and make booking them on our website as quick, easy and Stress Free as it should be

The reason we do things a bit differently is because we got annoyed with seeing people being hit with unexpected charges and thought we could do a better job.

Car rental excess, security deposits and insurance

We get how daunting and frightening choosing a car insurance product can be. The extra fees that make up 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

Many hire car websites mask the expensive insurance excess and security deposit costs in the terms and conditions. Customers are then shocked 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 obstruct your holiday plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.

On our website you'll find three options for car hire excess cover, basic, essential and premium and we help you find the hire car that suits you, your family and your trip. You can view the details of these on the extras page of our website when booking your rental.
