Lots of the Uganda car hire partners we include accept a debit card when you collect the car; often these do have special terms and conditions related with them. Be sure that you review the terms if you intend to use a debit card when you collect the car.

It can be good to understand the alternative payment options for your car rental in Uganda, as some payments for add ons (like extra drivers and child seats) might have to be settled in the local currency (by credit card or debit card) on vehicle collection.

It's important to consider when deciding if you should use a debit card at the collection desk, car hire companies often block an excess on the lead drivers credit card, this is often a large amount of money and if you choose to pay using debit card this can be debited from your account and not returned until weeks following your rental has ended.

It's worth remembering that frequently car rental brands that do allow debit card on collection are more costly than those that accept credit card only.

If you've opted for Basic or Essential Cover with your car rental, it usually means that you'll have to have a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You'll more often than not be given the opportunity to pay for a top up policy by the rental company on collection, this then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Very often, rentals that include our Premium Cover option enable you to use a debit card when you pick up the car with no additional fees. You're able to compare if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the car hire excess and insurance options on the extras page of our website booking process.

Stress Free Car Rental accepts a large range of currencies including Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Australian Dollars (AUD).

Why Stress Free Car Rental is different

There's a wide variety of reasons why we're different from our rivals but to start, it's important to recognise that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our personal frustration with the process of renting a car.

The reason we decided to do things a bit differently is because we got fed up of seeing people having trips ruined by a bad car rental experience and knew we could provide a more transparent service.

Stress Free Car Rental won't be beaten on price. Our car hire price match guarantee means if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower cost, we'll match it.

Car hire providers we work with include the main car hire companies like Hertz and Enterprise there are some firms we know will not give you the experience or price that you deserve - so we do not list these on the website.

Our pricing always includes extra fees that other websites often don't include - this ensures that our service is as clear-cut as possible.

Stress Free Car Rental checks millions of car hire prices at 1000s of car rental locations to obtain low cost deals and ensure that booking them on the website as fast, simple, simple, fast and Stress Free as possible

Sometimes it's daunting at first to hire a car in a different country, just relax and you'll soon find yourself acclimatised to the differences. Have a great vacation

Car rental insurance, excess and security deposits

We get how frightening choosing a car insurance product can be. The additional charges that make up the price of hiring a vehicle are often very confusing, these 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 our website when booking your rental.

Many car hire websites mask the price of insurance excess and security deposit costs in the fine print. Customers are then surprised when the cash 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.
