There's a bucket load of reasons why we're different from our rivals but to start, it's important to recognise that Stress Free Car Rental was born out of our own frustration with the process of renting a vehicle.
The reason we decided to do things a bit differently is because we got fed up of seeing customers being hit with unexpected fees and thought we could provide a better service.
13 seater hire providers we work with include the main vehicle hire providers like Enterprise and Hertz there are some firms we know will not give you the experience or price that you deserve - so we don't list these on the website.
