How to Hire a Car in Johannesburg without an Insurance Excess Held on Your Card

The car will already be covered for theft and accidents as part of the rental fee you will see our website. This type of cover is known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

Although all of our rentals in Johannesburg come with CDW in the price , there is usually an insurance excess, this excess is held on your credit card on collection. The excess is the total amount you'd be required to pay if the car is severely damaged, written off or stolen. The the excess amount on rental cars can be very expensive. It's often between £950 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 arrive to collect the car, the insurance excess is held on your card as something called a 'pre-auth' transaction. This means that the amount is not taken from your card as a normal payment, it's held as a pending transaction until you drop off the vehicle. You won't usually pay currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised payments. As long as the car is returned in the same condition as when you collected it, the excess amount will be fully refunded to your credit card without anything additional to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the excess is taken from your account and refunded when the vehicle is dropped off. If you intend to use debit card on collection, as the excess amount can be high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover when you book or to pay for top up insurance at the rental desk.

To view car hire options in Johannesburg with a £0 or reduced insurance excess check out our Premium Cover rental options.

How to Hire a Car in Johannesburg with No Security Deposit

We compare all of the car hire options with a low security deposit and in some instances no deposit at all except for fuel. When you book a rental in Johannesburg with Premium Cover included, you're often able to reduce your deposit to cover only fuel (often less than £100), this is refunded when the rental is dropped off with a full tank.

Car Hire in Johannesburg with Cross Border Fees Included

If you fail to do so, it's possible that the rental car will not be insured if you take the rental into a different country.

Our advice to find the best deal on your Minibus rental

Factor in the time of year:

To find the best deals for your rental in Johannesburg, it makes sense to book early, especially during peak times like Christmas and School holidays. Minibus hire can be in high demand in the school holidays and the supply of large vehicles is more restricted than many other types of car. If you change your mind or the price drops after you've booked your rental with us, we offer free cancellation, so you can cancel at any point up until 48 hours prior to collecting the car.

Fuel and mileage policies:

When you are looking around for your vehicle rental on different websites, be sure to factor in the mileage allowance and fuel policy. Many other websites hide this away in the terms and conditions. If you use more than the mileage allowance or hire a Minibus with a full to empty fuel policy, you might end up with some unexpected charges when you return the car. Our site only includes full to full rentals and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Security deposit and excess:

Ensure that you check the amount you'll have to pay as a security deposit on your credit card. For cheaper Minibus rentals, you'll be required to leave a much more expensive security deposit, which is held on your credit card when you pick up. You will see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.

Additional drivers and child seats:

You'll find the prices of extras on the extras page. We often have special deals, including extra drivers in the price. When free additional drivers are available, you'll see them displayed on the search results page of website.

Border crossing and one-way fees:

If you intend to take the Minibus across a border into a different country from Johannesburg additional fees are normally charged by the car rental company. Be sure to check the T&Cs for these fees before you book as it can be quite expensive. If you don't see them on our website, contact one of our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

Minibus rental insurance options:

Minibus rental in Johannesburg is insured fully but with an insurance excess amount. You will be offered the option to purchase a policy to cover the excess on the extras page of our website. If don't insure the excess the amount held on your credit card is at risk if there is any damage to the car or it's stolen.

Why we're different

There's a huge amount of reasons why we are 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 provide you with all of the best Minibus hire prices with no unexpected charges.

We do not work with just any Minibus rental firms. We're cautious to only work with Minibus rental brands you can trust.

Our website collects millions of Minibus hire prices at 1000s of vehicle rental locations to hunt down amazing offers and make booking them on our website as fast, simple, simple, fast and Stress Free as it can be

We don't like to be be beaten on price. Our price match promise means that if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower cost, we'll match it.

Pricing includes added fees that other price comparison websites often don't include - this ensures that our process is as clear-cut as possible.

The reason we do things differently to other vehicle rental websites is because we got annoyed with seeing people being hit with unexpected fees and knew we could provide a better service.

Brands we list on the website 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 list these on our website.

Stress Free Essential insurance options

Along with being easy to use, friendly and of course, stress free, we offer two different levels of insurance when you hire a Minibus in Johannesburg with us.

Essential Cover includes fire, weather, theft, damage caused to the vehicle, flushing the engine after misfuelling, key cover and more.

Essential cover will appear as an optional extra in the vehicle hire insurance options. For some partner/geographical Minibus rental combinations the cover isn't always offered.

Our essential cover, offered when you make your vehicle hire booking, is a vehicle hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a range of extra costs that standard insurance doesn't.

Our essential cover doesn't cover things like cleaning fees, mechanical repairs, third party injury, loss of theft/damage to content in the vehicle and other things. To view the detailed information see the T&Cs on the extras page of the website

Collecting your Minibus rental in Johannesburg using a debit card and other payment card options.

Pay with Visa, American Express or a Mastercard debit card or credit card issued by a bank or credit card company when hiring a Minibus with us.

If you've included Essential or Basic Cover for your rental, it usually means that you'll need to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the vehicle. You'll usually be given the opportunity to purchase a top up policy by the rental partner on collection, which then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

It is good to understand the payment options for your Minibus rental, as often payments for add ons (like Sat Nav and extra drivers) might need to be settled in the local currency (by credit card) at the collection counter.

Don't forget that quite frequently Minibus rental partners that will allow debit card on collection are not as cheap as those that accept credit card only.

Would you like us to allow you to pay with a method other than debit card and credit card? Feel free to get in touch to let us know. We're always open to ideas regarding how to improve our service to make paying for your vehicle rental as Stress Free as it can be.

Be careful when deciding if you'd prefer to use a debit card when collecting your Minibus , Minibus hire companies often hold an excess on the lead drivers credit card, this can be a considerable amount of money and if you decide to pay using debit card this can be debited from your account and not refunded until weeks following you've returned the vehicle.

You can book using a large number of different currencies including US Dollars (USD), British Pounds (GBP), Euros (EUR), South African Rand (ZAR) and Canadian Dollars (CAD).

We've made it ridiculously simple on the website to view which X rental partners do accept debit card. Simply use the filters on the second page to compare which Minibus rental partners will accept your card type at the collection desk.

Most of the Minibus rental partners we include on the website accept a debit card when you collect the rental; sometimes these do have special terms and conditions associated with them. Be sure that you understand the T&Cs if you'd like to pick up the Minibus using a debit card.

Usually, Minibus rentals that come with our Premium Cover option allow you to use a debit card on collection without any additional fees. You're able to view if a debit card is allowed, along with the different vehicle hire excess and insurance options on the extras page of our website booking process.

Our Premium cover

Premium cover is the highest option for Minibus hire insurance we offer.

You're able to buy Premium Cover bundled with your Minibus rental, so that you know the total cost of everything before completing your booking.

Selecting Premium Insurance is optional, you can also choose to purchase Premium Cover at the vehicle rental counter, It is usually cheaper to book this in advance on our website at the same time as you make your Minibus hire booking.

We want you to be able to understand all of the options relating to which Minibus rental insurance product is right for you, we work closely with our vehicle rental partners to provide you the option to buy a Premium cover product.

Many of our customers choose the Premium Cover option when hiring a vehicle because it usually reduces the excess to zero meaning that you have no large security deposit or vehicle rental insurance excess risk. Customers can also often collect the vehicle using debit cards with Premium Cover if using a credit card is a problem.
