There's a bucket load of reasons why we are different from our rivals 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.
We don't work with just any 12 seater hire providers. We're cautious to only work with brands you can trust.
Pricing on our website for rentals in Malaga includes additional fees that other vehicle hire websites often don't display - this makes sure that our service is as transparent as it can be.
We only list 12 seaters that come with a fair full to full fuel policy. You will collect the vehicle with a full tank and drop it off full. A small amount for fuel will be held on your credit card when you pick up the vehicle and refunded when you return it full. Look out for full to empty fuel policies you might see at a lower cost on other sites, full to empty usually comes with some hefty extra fees for refuelling, we recommend to always check the T&Cs for full to empty rentals.
Still confused? Get in touch with one of our car hire advisors and we'll have you on the road in no time.
