If you're looking for 8 seater hire with no excess and no deposit, check out our premium cover options. Premium Cover reduces the excess and security deposit on your vehicle rental (often to zero).
Sharing the driving on your trip? keep an eye out for special discounts on our site for 8 seater rentals with free extra drivers included. These offers can save you a small fortune compared with paying for extra drivers when you collect the vehicle.
We only list 8 seaters that come with a fair full to full fuel policy. You'll pick up the vehicle with a full tank and drop it off full. A small deposit for fuel will be held on your credit card when you pick up the vehicle and refunded when you return it with a full tank. Beware of full to empty fuel policies you might see at a cheaper price on other sites, full to empty usually means you should expect some hefty additional fees for refuelling, so always check the T&Cs for full to empty rentals.
The 8 seaters on our website include a price match guarantee and free cancellation. You can change your mind and cancel with a full refund up to 48 hours before you collect the vehicle.
Along with being friendly, easy to use and of course, stress free, we offer two different levels of insurance when you book a 8 seater with us.
Our essential cover doesn't cover things like loss of theft/damage to content in the vehicle, third party injury mechanical repairs, cleaning fees. To view the detailed information see the T&Cs on the extras page of the website
Our essential cover, offered at the same time as you make your vehicle hire booking in Alicante, is a vehicle hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a range of extra charges that standard insurance doesn't.
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 was born out of our personal frustration with the process of hiring a vehicle.
8 seater rental companies we list on the website include big vehicle hire companies like Europcar and Hertz there are some companies we know will not give you the experience or price that you deserve - so we don't include these on our website.
So, the reason we do things differently to other vehicle rental websites is because we got frustrated with seeing customers being hit with unexpected fees and thought we could do a better job.
Premium cover is the highest level of 8 seater hire insurance we offer.
A lot of our customers decide to choose the Premium Cover option when hiring a 8 seater because it usually reduces the excess to zero meaning that the customer has no large security deposit or vehicle hire insurance excess risk. Customers can also often pay with debit cards with Premium Cover if using a credit card is a problem.
So that you can understand all of the options regarding which 8 seater rental insurance product is right for you for your rental in Alicante, we work closely with our vehicle rental partners to provide you the ability to buy a Premium cover product.
You can use a Visa, Mastercard or an American Express credit card or a debit card issued by a bank or credit card company when hiring a 8 seater with us.
We accept a huge number of different currencies including Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Australian Dollars (AUD).
Many of the 8 seater rental companies we include in Alicante accept a debit card when you collect the rental; often these do have different T&Cs related with them. Always be sure to check the T&Cs if you plan to use a debit card at the desk when collecting the vehicle.
