There's a huge amount of reasons why we are different from our rivals but to start, it's important to understand that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our frustration with the process of hiring a car.
We provide you with all of the best car hire prices in Madrid Spain with no hidden fees.
Our technology checks millions of car rental prices at 1000s of car hire locations to hunt down great deals and make booking them on our website as fast, simple, simple, fast and Stress Free as it should be
Pricing includes extra fees that other price comparison websites don't usually display - this makes sure that our service is as transparent as it can be.
Car rental companies we list on the website include the main vehicle hire companies like Europcar and Hertz there are some companies we know will not give you the price or experience that you deserve - so we don't include these on our website.
So, the reason we do things differently to other car rental websites is because we got annoyed with seeing people being hit with unexpected fees and felt like we could do a better job.

If you've chosen Basic or Essential Cover for your rental, it usually means that you'll need a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car.
