8 Seater Hire in Birmingham

Rental car jargon

Additional driver fees

A rental contract at Birmingham is between the hire car company and the one person who signs the agreement and will be the main driver. This requires that you need to ask for other drivers to be added, this usually means an additional cost ( can be up to £12a day at Birmingham ). However, there are occasional promotions that include extra drivers are free. Always be cautious of being asked if you'd like to add a driver without being informed of the price.

Collision damage waiver (CDW)

CDW is included with all rental cars at Birmingham. It covers the car for accident damage in a similar way the insurance cover you have on your personal car does. It includes an excess which you can cover with an additional policy (See Excess reimbursement insurance). Stress Free Car Rental also list cars that include CDW with a zero excess

Insurance excess

The hire car at Birmingham is fully insured for theft and damage as part of the hire cost. For rentals outside of the US and Canada there's almost always an insurance excess to pay* - just like on your own car in the UK. However, the excess on hire cars can be very high. It's normally in the region of £1,100 to £2,700. If you decide not to cover the excess amount you could be liable to pay for any damage to the car up to the value of the excess amount. Take a look at our Premium Cover hire car options if you'd prefer not to have the excess amount held on your credit card .

Child Seats and other extras:

You can see the cost of extras on the extras page. We often have special promotions, including extra drivers in the price. When free additional drivers are available, you can find them clearly displayed on the search results page of website.

Consider the dates you're booking:

To find the best deals for your rental in Birmingham it makes sense to book in advance, especially during peak times like Easter and Christmas. 8 seater hire can be in very high demand in the summer months and often the availability of larger vehicles is more restricted than most other types of car.

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

When you arrive to collect the hire car, the excess is held on your credit card as a 'pre-auth' transaction. Pre Auth means that the money isn't taken from your credit card as a regular payment, it's held as a pending payment until you drop off the car. You don't normally have to pay currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions, so provided the vehicle is returned in the same condition as when it was collected, the excess amount will be fully refunded to your card without anything additional to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the insurance excess will be taken from your bank account and fully refunded when the vehicle is dropped off. If you plan to use debit card on collection, as the excess amount is often very high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover on our website or to pay for top up insurance at the rental desk.
