9 seater car hire insurance :

Vehicle rental in Cardiff is insured fully but with an insurance excess amount. You'll be offered the chance to buy a policy to cover the excess on the extras page of our website. If you fail to insure the excess the amount held on your credit card is at risk if the car is returned damaged or is stolen.

We only list 9 seaters that come with a fair full to full fuel policy. You will pick up the vehicle with a full fuel tank and drop it off full. A small amount for the fuel will be held on your credit card when you collect the vehicle and refunded when you drop it off with a full tank. Beware of full to empty fuel policies you might find at a cheaper price on other websites, full to empty usually means you should expect some hefty additional fees for fuel, we recommend to always check the T&Cs for full to empty rentals.

If you're trying to find a 9 seater hire 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 (often to zero).

Sharing the driving on your trip? keep an eye out for special discounts on the website for 9 seater rentals including free extra drivers. These deals can save you money compared with paying for extra drivers when you collect the vehicle.

Hire car terms

Third party liability insurance

Car hire at Cardiff on this website always includes this.

Third party liability insurance provides protection in case you cause an accident. If you do, it might injure or kill other people (for instance your passengers, pedestrians or people in other vehicles), or damage property (their vehicle, house or possessions, for example). Since they need to be protected, you could be responsible the cost of any damage, or treating injuries or covering loss of earnings, as well as any legal costs and any court fees.

Third party liability is subject to an excess, which means you'll have to pay the first part of any claim (normally between £750 to £1,500, depending on the value of the car, the country and the deal). If you choose to cover your excess , you will be reimbursed for any or all of the excess you have to pay. If you decide to take out Premium Cover, your excess can be reduced .

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)

The hire cars at Cardiff on our site come with a full to fuel fuel policy.

You'll be required to hold a small deposit for fuel on a credit card when you pick up the rental. Fill the rental up and drop it off full and there's no additional fees for fuel.

You might see full to empty policies on other sites that seem to be offering better deals. Be sure to check the small print for full to empty rentals as the admin and refuelling costs associated with full to empty fuel policies always make it more expensive than full to full fuel policies.

All about Wales

For a slower pace of life why not visit one of the stunning, old railway stations that Wales has to offer like Bala Lake, Llanberis Lake, or even Snowdon mountain. Each one is guaranteed to take you on an interesting adventure and offer up some truly jaw-dropping scenery.

The amazing country of Wales! From its rolling valleys, stunning coastlines and bustling modern towns like Filton and Cwmbran - it truly does have something for everyone. And as well as all that it's got some of the best driving roads in Britain so you can really enjoy driving in the countryside in your rental vehicle from Stress Free Car Rental.

Wales is serviced by Cardiff Airport. If you're flying into Wales, hiring a car at Cardiff Airport is a brilliant way to discover Wales. It's possible to pick up your car rental either inside the terminal building or a short shuttle bus ride away, then drive over to Cardiff which is approximately 0.4 miles away from Cardiff Airport.

Take a trip along the Millenium Bridge, walk among the the bustling streets of Cardiff or simply get away from it all and visit some of the incredible towns like Monmouth, Bridgend or Yeovil. Each is sure to be filled with interesting mining stories, charming shops and people who are delighted to welcome friendly faces!

Stress Free Car Rental's Premium cover option

Premium cover is the highest option for 9 seater hire insurance we provide.

Choosing Premium Cover is optional, you can also opt to buy Premium Cover at the vehicle hire desk, It is usually cheaper to buy this up front on our website at the same time as you make your 9 seater hire booking.

So that you can understand all of the options relating to which 9 seater rental insurance product is right for you for your rental in Cardiff, we work closely with our vehicle rental partners to give you the ability to purchase a Premium cover product.

A lot of our customers choose the Premium Cover option when renting a 9 seater because it usually brings the excess down to zero meaning that you have no large security deposit or vehicle rental insurance excess risk. Customers can also often pay with debit cards with Premium Cover if using a credit card is a problem.

Top tips to discover the best deal on your 9 Seater rental

Additional drivers and child seats:

You'll find the cost of extras on our extras page. We often have special deals, including additional drivers in the price. When free additional drivers are available, you'll see them clearly listed on the search results page of website.

Consider the time of year:

To find the best deals for your rental in Cardiff it makes sense to book in advance, especially during peak times like school holidays and Christmas. 9 seater rental can be in exceptionally high demand in the summer months and the supply of larger vehicles is more restricted than most other types of rental. If you change your mind or the price drops after you've booked your rental, we offer free cancellation, so you can cancel anytime up until 48 hours prior to collecting the car.

Mileage and fuel policy:

When you're looking around for your vehicle rental on other websites, be sure to check the mileage allowance and fuel policy. Some other websites hide this away in the T&Cs. If you go over the mileage allowance or rent a 9 seater with a full to empty fuel policy, you could be hit with some unexpected charges when you return the car. We only offer full to full rentals in Cardiff and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

One-way fees and border crossing:

If you plan to drive the 9 seater across a border from Cardiff into a different country, additional fees are normally charged by the car rental provider. Be careful to check the T&Cs for these before you book as it can be quite expensive. If you don't see them on our website, contact one of our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

Excess and Security Deposit:

Always compare the amount you'll have to leave as a security deposit on your credit card. Often, for cheaper 9 seater rentals, you will have to leave a more expensive security deposit, which will be held on your card when you collect the car. You'll always see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.

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 recognise that Stress Free Car Rental was born out of our own frustration with the process of renting a vehicle.

Stress Free Car Rental don't like to work with just any 9 seater rental companies. We're careful to only work with 9 seater rental brands you can trust.

9 seater rental companies we list on the website include big vehicle hire providers like Enterprise and Hertz there are some firms we know will not give you the price or experience that you deserve - so we don't include these on our website.

So, 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 thought we could do a better job.

If your plans change we'll process your refund in under 24 hours. All rentals booked with us can be cancelled up until 48 hours before collecting the vehicle
