There's a bucket load 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 personal frustration with the process of renting a vehicle.
The reason we do things a bit differently is because we got fed up of seeing people having trips ruined by a bad rental experience and knew we could provide a better service.
Pricing on our website for rentals in Cardiff 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.
We don't like to be be beaten on price. Our 15 seater hire price match promise means if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower cost, we'll match it.
During the COVID pandemic ensuring safety remains our top priority. As before the crisis and throughout we include free cancellation with a full refund on all car hire booked on our site. Throughout April and May, we've reduced our amount of time it takes to process refunds, all refunds are handled inside of 24 hours of receiving the cancellation request - the funds usually clearing to the customer's credit card in less than a week.
All of our car rental partners are carrying out additional cleaning precautions during the current COVID pandemic. The following is an summary of the addional measures being carried out.
Between rentals, Hertz and Thrifty are implementing a multi stage cleaning and sterilisation procedure, including thorough cleaning of the seats, door handles, steering wheel and keys.
Europcar are carrying out additional vehicle deep cleaning measures. Vehicle keys are disinfected between all rentals and placed in a sealed envelope once disinfection is complete. Infection risk has been further reduced by ensuring that a zero contact policy is in place at the rental desks, with all desks cleaned thoroughly between every customer collection.

Most of the 15 seater hire partners we compare prices for in Cardiff will accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the rental; often these do have special terms and conditions associated with them. Be careful to review the terms and conditions if you intend to use a debit card at the desk when collecting the vehicle.
When you include Essential or Basic Cover with your vehicle, it usually means that you'll need to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the vehicle.
