Renting a Car in Cape Town with One Way Fees included

How to Rent a Car in Cape Town with One Way Fees included

Most of the vehicle brands we include in Cape Town allow you to pick up the car in Cape Town and drop off the vehicle at a different location. If you have chosen a different drop off location for your rental, the prices on the website already include all additional charges for this. You can also find a full breakdown of the additional charges on the payment page.

Renting a Car in Cape Town with zero Insurance Excess

The hire car will be insured for theft and accidents included in the rental price you will see displayed on our website. This type of cover is often referred to as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

All of our rentals in Cape Town come with CDW in the price displayed, there is often an insurance excess, this excess is held on your credit card when you collect the car. The insurance excess is the total amount you'd be required to pay if the car is severely damaged, written off or stolen. However, the excess amount on hire cars can be expensive. It's normally between £1,000 to £3,000, depending on the car, the country and the deal. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll have to pay some or all of the excess.

When you pick up the rental car, the excess is held on your card as a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the money isn't charged to your credit card as a regular transaction, it's held as a pending transaction until you drop off the car. You don't normally pay foreign currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised transactions, so provided the vehicle is dropped off in the same condition as when it was collected, the amount is fully refunded to your credit card with nothing further to pay.

If you intend to pay for your rental by debit card, the excess will be taken from your account and refunded when the vehicle is dropped off. If you plan to use debit card on collection, as the excess is often very high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover when you book or to pay for top up cover at the rental desk.

If you'd like to hire a car in Cape Town with a £0 or reduced insurance excess review our Premium Cover rental options.

Why Stress Free Car Rental is different

There's a bucket load of reasons why we are different from our rivals but to start, it's important to understand that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our frustration with the process of renting a vehicle.
