There's a huge amount 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 hiring a vehicle.
Our website collects millions of 8 seater hire deals at 1000s of vehicle hire locations to obtain the best deals and make booking them on our website as fast, simple, simple, fast and Stress Free as possible
Pricing for rentals in Cardiff includes added fees that other vehicle hire websites often don't display - this ensures that our service is as transparent as possible.
You can pay with Visa, American Express or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card issued by your bank or credit card company when booking your 8 seater on our website.
When you opt to include Basic or Essential Cover for your rental, it usually means that you will need to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the vehicle. You will more often than not be given the option to pay for a top up policy by the rental company on collection, this then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
Frequently, 8 seater rentals that include our Premium Cover option will allow you to use a debit card on collection without any extra fees. You can compare if a debit card is allowed, along with the different vehicle hire security deposit and insurance options on the extras page of our website booking process.
Premium cover is the highest option for 8 seater hire insurance we offer.
You're able to buy Premium Cover along with your 8 seater rental, so that you know the price of everything before you pay.
Selecting Premium Insurance is totally optional, you can also choose to buy Premium Cover at the vehicle rental desk, Sometimes it's cheaper to buy this in advance on our website at the same time as you make your 8 seater rental booking.
