Our Premium cover

Premium insurance is the highest level of 13 seater hire insurance we offer.

We want you to be able to make an informed decision regarding which 13 seater rental insurance product is right for you for your rental in Edinburgh, we work closely with our vehicle rental partners to provide you the option to rent a vehicle including a Premium cover product.

Selecting Premium Insurance is completely optional, you can also choose to purchase Premium Cover at the vehicle hire counter, It can be cheaper to buy this up front on our website at the same time as you make your 13 seater rental booking.

Our advice to find a cheap 13 Seater rental

Consider the time of year:

To bag yourself a deal for your rental in Edinburgh it makes sense to book in advance, especially during peak times like Christmas and School holidays. 13 seater hire can be in exceptionally high demand in the summer months and the availability of larger vehicles is more restricted than most other types of car. If you change your mind or the price drops after you've booked your rental with us, we include free cancellation, so you can cancel at any point up until 48 hours prior to collecting the vehicle.

Child seats and additional drivers:

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

Whether you are planning a golf trip with your friends or a holiday with your extended family, our website compares a wide variety of affordable 13 seaters for rental in Edinburgh, from all of the brands you can trust including National and many more, we're sure to include an 13 seater option that meets your needs perfectly.

Our website only compares 13 seaters that include a fair full to full fuel policy. You'll pick up the vehicle with a full tank and return it full. A small deposit for fuel will be held on your credit card when you collect the vehicle and refunded when you drop it off full. Beware of full to empty fuel policies you might compare at a cheaper price on other websites, full to empty usually means you should expect some hefty extra fees for refuelling, so always check the terms and conditions for full to empty rentals.

Need an additional driver? look out for special bundles on our site for 13 seater hire with free extra drivers included. These can save you money compared to paying for extra drivers when you pick up the vehicle.

If you're looking for 13 seater rental with no deposit and no excess, check out our premium cover options. Premium Cover reduces the excess and security deposit on your vehicle rental (sometimes to zero).

Collecting your 13 Seater hire in Edinburgh using a debit card .

You can pay with American Express, Visa or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card issued by your bank or credit card company when booking your 13 seater on our website.

Lots of the 13 seater hire companies we work with in Edinburgh will accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the 13 seater; some of these do have special terms and conditions associated with them. Be careful to check the terms and conditions if you plan to use a debit card when you collect the vehicle.

It can be practical to understand the payment and currency options for your 13 seater hire, as some payments for add ons (such as Sat Nav and extra drivers) might have to be settled in the local currency (by credit card) when you pick up the 13 seater.

Why we're different

There's a wide variety of reasons why we're different from our competitors but to start, it's important to understand that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our frustration with the process of renting a vehicle.

Renting a Car in Edinburgh without an Insurance Excess Held on Your Card

The hire car will already be covered for theft and accidents as part of the rental fee you'll see displayed on the website. This insurance is often referred to as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

All of our rentals in Edinburgh come with CDW in the price , there's often an insurance excess, which is held on your credit card when you collect the car. The excess is the amount you'd be liable to pay if the vehicle is stolen, written off or severely damaged. The the excess on rental cars can be high. It's normally between £800 to £2,200. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll have to pay some or all of the excess.

When you pick up the vehicle, the excess is held on your credit card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the amount isn't charged to your credit card as a regular payment, it's held as a pending transaction until you drop off the car. You won't usually pay foreign currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised payments. As long as the rental car is dropped off in the same condition as when you collected it, this amount is fully refunded to your card with nothing further to pay.

If you intend to pay for your rental by debit card, the excess will be taken from your account and refunded when the car is dropped off. If you plan to use a debit card on collection, as the excess can be very high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover when you book or to pay for top up cover at the rental desk.

If you'd like to hire a car in Edinburgh with a £0 or reduced excess review our Premium Cover options.
