You're able to view if a debit card is allowed, along with all of the vehicle hire security deposit and insurance options on the extras page of the website booking process.
One important thing to consider when deciding if you should use a debit card on collection, 9 seater hire companies sometimes block an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess is often a large amount of money , if you choose to pay with debit card this will be debited from your bank and not refunded until a couple of weeks after you've returned the vehicle.
Many of the 9 seater rental brands we compare prices for in Cape Town accept a debit card when you pick up the 9 seater; sometimes these do have different terms and conditions related to them. Always be sure to check the terms if you intend to pick up the 9 seater using a debit card.

There's a bucket load of reasons why we're different from our competitors 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 vehicle.
Stress Free Car Rental won't be beaten on price. Our 9 seater hire price match promise means that if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower cost, we'll match it.
The reason we decided to do things a bit differently is because we got frustrated with seeing people having trips ruined by a bad rental experience and knew we could do a better job.
9 seater hire providers we work with include big vehicle hire companies like Hertz and Enterprise there are some firms we know will not give you the price or experience that you deserve - so we don't include these on our website.
If your plans change we'll process your refund in under 24 hours. All rentals booked with us can be cancelled up until 48 hours before collecting the vehicle
All car hire brands on our website are following local government guidelines re vehicle sterilisation and social distancing at the collection desk.
