Car Hire deals in St Maarten with Low Deposits

Car rental excess, security deposits and insurance

We understand how daunting and frightening choosing a hire car excess cover product can be. The additional charges that are included in the price of hiring a vehicle are often very confusing, these 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 view the details of these on the extras page of our website when booking your rental.

Many hire car websites hide the expensive insurance excess and security deposit costs in the small print. 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 unfair and can really hinder your plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.
