Picking up your South Korea Car hire without a credit card.

You can pay with American Express, Visa or a Mastercard debit card or credit card issued by your bank or credit card company when hiring a car on our website.

Be careful when deciding if you should use a debit card when collecting your car, car hire companies sometimes block an excess on the lead drivers credit card, this is often a significant amount of money and if you opt to pay using debit card this might be debited from your bank account and not returned until a couple of weeks following your rental has ended.

When you opt to include Basic or Essential Cover with your rental, this usually means that you will need to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You'll more often than not be given the option to purchase a top up policy by the rental partner at the collection desk, which then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Stress Free Car Rental accepts a large range of currencies including US Dollars (USD), British Pounds (GBP), Euros (EUR), South African Rand (ZAR) and Canadian Dollars (CAD).

It can be good to understand the alternative currency and payment options for your car rental in South Korea, as payments for add ons (like extra drivers and child seats) might need to be paid in the local currency (by credit card) when you pick up the car.

Tips for Driving your car hire in South Korea

Before commencing your trip take some time to familiarise yourself with the vehicle and its controls. This is very important if you normally drive a manual gearbox on the other side of the road.

If you are given a traffic violation fine when driving in South Korea the car rental provider might deduct this amount from the credit card you have on record. If this happens you'll be informed via email when this has taken place

it can be a good idea to keep some change ready in the car to pay for tolls. Many tolls will accept cards but it's better to have cash as a backup

When driving on the opposite side than you're used to be extra careful with traffic circles.

If you'd like to drive across the border to a different country, be sure to check the terms and conditions for additional fees and to let the car hire provider know. If you fail to do so there is the possibility that the cars insurance will not be valid if you are involved in an accident or the car is stolen

Car rental excess, security deposits and insurance

We get how daunting picking a rental car excess cover product can be. The additional 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, basic, essential and premium and we help you find the hire car that suits you, your family and your trip. You're able to view the details of these on the extras page of the site when making a booking.

Many car rental websites mask the price of insurance excess and security deposit prices in the small print. Customers are then surprised when the amount is taken from their debit card account or the amount is held on their credit card. We think this is unfair and can really hinder your holiday plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.
