Hire car jargon

Collision damage waiver (CDW)

Collision damage waiver (CDW) is always included with all rental cars at Edinburgh. It covers the car for accident damage in the same way the insurance you usually have on your personal vehicle does. CDW includes an excess which you can choose to insure with an additional policy (See Excess reimbursement insurance). We also list car hire on the site that include CDW with a zero excess

Rental car excess

The rental car at Edinburgh will already be insured for damage and theft as part of the rental cost. However, there is usually an excess held on your card* - just like on your own car in the UK. However, the excess on hire cars can be very high. It's often in the region of £1,100 to £2,700. If you fail to cover the excess you will be liable to pay for damage to the car up to the value of the excess amount. Check out the Premium Cover rental car options if you'd like to avoid having the excess amount held on your credit card when you pick up the car.

Top tips to find a deal on your 14 Seater rental

Fuel and mileage policies:

When you're shopping around for your vehicle rental on other websites, be careful to check the fuel policy and mileage allowance. Some other websites hide this away in the terms and conditions. If you go over your mileage allowance or hire a 14 seater with a full to empty fuel policy, you might be hit with some unexpected charges when you return the vehicle. We only compare full to full rentals in Edinburgh and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Additional drivers and child seats:

You can see the prices of these on the extras page. Whenever available we have special deals, including extra drivers in the price. When free extra drivers are available, you'll see them clearly displayed on the search results page of website.

Stress Free Car Rental's Premium cover

Premium insurance is the highest option for 14 seater hire insurance we provide.

Choosing Premium Insurance is totally optional, you can also opt to purchase Premium Cover at the vehicle rental desk, It can be cheaper to buy this in advance on our website when you make your 14 seater hire booking.

How to Hire a Car in Edinburgh with a Low Security Deposit

When you collect the car, you will usually be asked to leave a security deposit on a debit card or credit card. Deposits can vary significantly dependent on the make and model of the car and the insurance excess amount. Car rental Security deposits in Edinburgh can vary between £50 and £2,300.

If you decide to book a rental in Edinburgh with Premium Cover included, you can reduce the deposit to cover only fuel (often less than £100), this is refunded when the car is returned with a full tank.

Car Hire in Edinburgh without an Excess Held on Your Credit Card

Your rental car will be fully covered for theft and accidents included in the hire fee you will see displayed on our website. This type of cover is also known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

All of our hire cars in Edinburgh come with CDW in the price displayed, there is often an insurance excess, this excess is held on your credit card when you collect the car. The excess is the amount you'd be required to pay if the car is severely damaged, written off or stolen. The the excess on hire cars can be very expensive. It's often between £1,000 to £3,000, depending on the car, the country and the deal. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll have to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

When you pick up the car, the excess is held on your credit card as a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the amount is not taken from your card as a regular transaction, it's held as a pending transaction until you drop off the vehicle. You don't normally pay currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised transactions. As long as the rental car is returned in the same condition as when it was collected, the amount is fully refunded to your card without anything additional to pay.

If you intend to pay for your rental by debit card, the excess is taken from your bank account and fully refunded when the vehicle is dropped off. If you intend to use a debit card on collection, as the excess can be high, it's recommended to buy Premium Cover when you book or to pay for top up cover at the collection desk.

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

We offer unlimited and limited mileage rentals.

Limited mileage rentals in Edinburgh can often be cheaper than unlimited. For limited mileage rentals, the mileage limit will always be clearly displayed. If you choose a rental including limited mileage, you will be charged an additional fee if you exceed the daily allowance. The total mileage allowance for the rental duration is calculated as (the number of rental days multiplied by the daily mileage allowance). You don't have to stay within the daily limit on every day, as long as the total miles used throughout the rental doesn't exceed the number of days multiplied by the daily allowance.

When you opt for a limited mileage rental, it's receommended to check the costs for excess mileage. You'll find these in our term and conditions section.
