13 Seater Hire in Birmingham

Why Stress Free Car Rental is different

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

Stress Free Car Rental won't work with just any 13 seater rental providers. We're selective to only work with 13 seater rental brands you can trust.

How to Rent a Car in Birmingham with Unlimited Mileage

Our website offers unlimited and limited mileage rentals.

Limited mileage rentals in Birmingham are often less expensive than unlimited. For limited mileage rentals, the mileage limit is always clearly visibile. If you choose a rental including limited mileage, you will be liable to pay a per mile additional fee if you exceed the daily allowance. The total mileage allowance for the rental is calculated as (the number of hire days multiplied by the daily mileage allowance). You do not have to remain within the daily allowance on every day, provided that the total miles used throughout the rental doesn't exceed the number of days multiplied by the daily limit.

If you opt for a limited mileage car hire, we recommend checking the fees for excess mileage. You'll find these in our T&Cs section.

Hiring a Car in Birmingham with no Excess

Your hire car will be covered for theft and accidents included in the hire fee you'll see displayed on the website. This cover is known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

Although all of our rental cars in Birmingham come with CDW in the price , there is often an insurance excess, which is held on your credit card when you collect the car. The insurance excess is the amount you'd be liable to pay if the car is severely damaged, written off or stolen. The the excess on hire cars can be high. It's often between £800 to £2,100. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll be required to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

When you arrive to collect the car, the excess is held on your credit card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the amount is not charged to your card as a normal payment, it's held as a pending payment until you return the vehicle. You don't normally pay foreign currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised payments, so provided the rental car is dropped off in the same condition as when it was collected, the excess amount is fully refunded to your credit card with nothing further to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the excess amount will be taken from your bank account and refunded when the vehicle is dropped off. If you plan to use debit card on collection, as the excess is often high, it's recommended to buy Premium Cover when you book or to pay for top up cover at the collection desk.

If you'd like to hire a car in Birmingham with a £0 or reduced excess review our Premium Cover rental options.

How to Hire a Car in Birmingham with One Way Fees included

Most of the car brands we work with in Birmingham allow you to pick up your car in Birmingham and return the car at a different location.

You will also find a full breakdown of all additional charges on the payment page.

Top tips to discover a cheap 13 Seater rental

Consider the dates you're booking:

To bag yourself a deal for your vehicle rental in Birmingham it makes sense to book in advance, especially during peak times like Easter and Christmas. 13 seater rental can be in exceptionally high demand in the summer months and often the availability of larger vehicles is more restricted than many other types of rental. If you change your mind or the price drops after you've booked your rental, we offer free cancellation, this means you can cancel anytime until 48 hours prior to collecting the vehicle.

Security deposit and excess:

Ensure that you compare the amount you're required to pay as a security deposit on your credit card. Often, for cheaper 13 seater rentals, you will have to leave a more expensive security deposit, this is held on your card when you pick up. You'll always see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.
