There's a bucket load of reasons why we are 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 renting a vehicle.
Brands we list on the website include big vehicle hire providers like Enterprise and Europcar there are some firms we know will not give you the price or experience that you deserve - so we do not list these on our website.
As always ensuring the safety of our customers remains our number one priority. As before the crisis and throughout Stress Free Car Rental provide free cancellation with a full refund on all car rental including insurance. Whilst the current situation is ongoing, we've significantly reduced our amount of time it takes to process refunds, we process all refunds within 1 business day of receiving a cancellation request - the refund clearing to the customer's account in less than 7 business days.
All of our car rental partners are implementing extra cleaning procedures, following the applicable local regulations, throughout the current pandemic. The following is an outline of some of the addional measures being carried out.
Between rentals, Hertz and Thrifty are carrying out a multi stage cleaning and sterilisation procedure, including rigorous cleaning of the keys, door handles and steering wheel.
New processes are now in place with Greenmotion, involving the installation of protection screens and hand sanitiser units at all locations. Employees are now wearing PPE including masks and gloves. Each car is being thoroughly cleaned and sanitised between every rental.
Europcar are carrying out extra car deep disinfecting measures. Keys are disinfected between all rentals and then kept 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 collection area, with all work areas cleaned between each customer interaction.
If you're trying to find a 6 seater rental with no excess and no deposit, take a look at our premium cover options. Premium Cover reduces the excess and security deposit on your rental (sometimes to zero).
Our website only compares 6 seaters that come with a fair full to full fuel policy. You will pick up the vehicle with a full fuel tank and return it full. A small amount for fuel will be held on your credit card when you collect the vehicle and refunded when you drop it off full. Look out for full to empty fuel policies you might find at a lower cost on other sites, full to empty usually means you should expect some expensive additional fees for fuel, we recommend to always check the T&Cs for full to empty rentals.
