Why Stress Free Car Rental is different

There's a bucket load of reasons why we are different from our competitors but to start, it's important to understand that Stress Free Car Rental was born out of our personal frustration with the process of renting a vehicle.

Brands we list on the website include big vehicle 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 our website.

Our website collects millions of Minibus hire prices at 1000s of vehicle rental locations to source amazing deals and ensure that booking them on the website as quick, easy and Stress Free as it should be

Stress Free Car Rental provide customers with all of the best Minibus rental deals with no unexpected fees.

Stress Free Car Rental do not work with just any Minibus rental companies. We're cautious to only work with vehicle rental companies you can trust.

The reason we do things differently to other vehicle rental websites is because we got frustrated with seeing customers having trips ruined by a bad rental experience and felt like we could do a better job.

We don't like to be be beaten on price. Our price match promise means that if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower price, we'll match it.

Pricing on our website includes added fees that other vehicle rental websites often don't include - this makes sure that our process is as straightforward as it can be.

If you fail to do so, you might find that the rental car will not be insured when you cross over into a different country.

Car Hire in Birmingham with no Excess Held on Your Card

The rental car will already be covered for accidents and theft as part of the hire price you will see our website. This type of cover is also known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

All of our rentals in Birmingham include CDW in the price displayed, there's also usually an insurance excess, which is held on your credit card when yoyu pick up the car. The excess is the amount you would be liable to pay if the car is stolen, written off or severely damaged. However, the excess on hire cars can be high. It's normally between £900 to £2,100. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll have to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

On collection of the vehicle, the excess is held on your card as something called a 'pre-auth' transaction. This means that the amount isn't taken from your card as a normal payment, it's held as a pending payment until you return the car. You won't usually have to pay currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised payments. As long as the car is returned in the same condition as when you collected it, the amount is fully refunded to your credit card with nothing additional to pay.

If you intend to pay for your rental by debit card, the excess is taken from your bank account and refunded when the vehicle is returned. If you plan to use a debit card on collection, as the excess can be high, it's recommended to buy Premium Cover when you book or to buy top up insurance at the rental desk.

To view car hire options in Birmingham with a £0 or reduced insurance excess take a look at our Premium Cover rental options.

Top tips to find the best deal on your Minibus rental

Factor in the dates you're booking:

To bag yourself a deal for your rental in Birmingham, it makes sense to book in advance, especially during peak times like Summer holidays and easter. Minibus rental can be in very high demand in the easter holidays and the availability of large 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 with us, we offer free cancellation, this means you can cancel and rebook anytime until 48 hours prior to collecting the car.

Fuel and mileage policies:

When you are shopping around for your vehicle rental on different websites, be cautious to check the fuel policy and mileage allowance. Some other websites hide this away in the T&Cs. If you use more than your mileage allowance or rent a Minibus with a full to empty fuel policy, you could end up with some unexpected charges when you return the car. We only compare full to full rentals and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Excess and Security Deposit:

Ensure that you compare the amount you'll have to leave as a security deposit on your card. For cheaper Minibus rentals, you'll have to leave a much more expensive security deposit, this is held on your credit card when you collect the car. You'll see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.

Additional drivers and child seats:

You'll find the cost of these on the extras page. Quite often we have special deals, including additional drivers in the price. Where free additional drivers are available, you can find them listed on the search results page of website.

Border crossing and one-way fees:

If you plan to take your Minibus over a border into a different country from Birmingham extra fees are normally charged by the car rental provider. Be sure to check the terms and conditions for these fees before you book as it can be quite expensive. If you can't find them on the website, please get in touch with one of our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

You're able to compare if a debit card is accepted, along with the different vehicle hire excess and insurance alternatives on the second step of the booking process.

Don't forget that quite frequently Minibus hire brands that do allow debit card on collection are more costly than Minibus hire companies that accept credit card only.

It is practical to know the alternative currency and payment options for your Minibus rental, as payments for add ons (such as Sat Nav and extra drivers) might need to be settled in local currency (either in cash or by credit card) at the collection counter.

If you've included Basic or Essential Cover with your vehicle, this usually means that you will need a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the vehicle. You'll usually be given the opportunity to buy a top up policy by the hire company at the collection desk, which then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

You can book using a number of currencies including British Pounds (GBP),US Dollars (USD) and South African Rand (ZAR).

Would you prefer us to accept payments with a method other than credit card or debit card? Do contact us to let us know. We're open to ideas about how we can improve our service to make booking your vehicle hire a Stress Free experience.

Most of the Minibus rental partners we compare prices for accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the rental; some of these do have special terms and conditions associated to them. Always be sure to check the terms if you'd like to pick up the Minibus using a debit card.
