Comparison of the best Car Rental Deals in Saudi Arabia

Car hire excess, security deposits and insurance

We understand how daunting and frightening choosing a car insurance product can be. The extra charges that make up the price of hiring a vehicle are often 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 levels of 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 car hire websites hide the costly insurance excess and security deposit costs in the fine print. Customers are then shocked when the cash is taken from their debit card account or the amount is held on their credit card. We think this is wrong and can really hinder your holiday plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.

Why we're different

There's a wide variety 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 personal frustration with the process of renting a car.

Stress Free Car Rental won't be beaten on price. Our price match guarantee means that if you find the same hire car at a lower cost, we'll match it.

The reason we decided to do things differently to other car rental websites is because we got annoyed with seeing customers having trips ruined by a bad car rental experience and thought we could do a better job.

Picking up your Saudi Arabia Car hire with a debit card.

We accept Visa, Mastercard or an American Express debit card or credit card issued by your bank or credit card company when booking your rental on our website.

When you include Basic or Essential Cover with your rental, this usually means that you will be required to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the car. You will usually be given the opportunity to purchase a top up policy by the hire partner when you collect the car, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

One important thing to consider when deciding if you should use a debit card at the collection desk, car rental companies sometimes block an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess can be a considerable amount of money and if you opt to pay using a debit card this might be debited from your bank account and not returned until weeks following you've returned the car.
