12 Seater Hire in Cardiff

Top tips to find a cheap 12 Seater rental

Child Seats and other extras:

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

Fuel and mileage policies:

If you're comparing the options for your vehicle rental on other websites, be sure to check the fuel policy and mileage allowance. Many other websites hide this away in the terms and conditions. If you use more than your mileage allowance or rent a 12 seater with a full to empty fuel policy, you could face some unexpected charges when you drop off the car. We only compare full to full rentals in Cardiff and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Excess and Security Deposit:

Always check the amount you're required to pay as a security deposit on your credit card. For cheaper 12 seater rentals, you will have to pay a more expensive security deposit, this is held on your credit card when you collect the car. You will see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.

Stress Free Car Rental's Premium cover

Premium insurance is the highest level of 12 seater hire insurance we provide.

Choosing Premium Insurance is completely optional, you can also decide to purchase Premium Cover at the collection desk, Sometimes it's cheaper to book this in advance on our website when you make your 12 seater hire booking.

You're able to buy Premium Cover alongside your 12 seater rental, so that you understand the total cost of everything before you pay.

Car hire jargon explained

Additional driver charges

A car hire agreement at Cardiff is between the car hire company and the individual who signs the agreement and will be the named driver. This requires that you have to ask for any other drivers to be added, and this usually means an additional cost ( can be up to £12a day at Cardiff ). However, there are occasional special offers where extra drivers are free. Beware of being asked if you'd like to include a driver without being told the price.

Theft liability cover (theft protection)

Car hire at Cardiff is covered for theft liability included in the price displayed (usually with an excess amount which is clearly displayed on our website).

It covers the amount due if the hire car is stolen. It is subject to an excess , which means you'll have to pay the first part of any claim (normally between £950 to £2,500, depending on the car, the country and the deal.

When you insure your excess with an excess reimbursement policy, however, you will be refunded for any or all of of the excess you pay (See our essential cover). With Premium Cover your excess amount can be reduced.
