9 Seater Rental in Edinburgh

How to Rent a Car in Edinburgh with Cross Border Fees Included

If you plan to pick up your rental in Edinburgh and drive it over the border , we strongly recommend to review the terms and conditions. Many car hire brands insist that you let them know on collection; and will charge additional fees to top up your insurance. If you fail to do so, it's possible that your rental will not be insured when you cross over into a different country.

You can find the details of cross border policies by clicking Rental terms and viewing the Cross Border Rules section.

If you're struggling to find the cross border information get in touch with one of our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

How to Rent a Car in Edinburgh with Unlimited Mileage

We offer limited and unlimited mileage rental.

Limited mileage rentals in Edinburgh can often be a cheaper option than unlimited. For limited mileage rentals, the daily mileage allowance will always be clearly displayed. If you decide to book a rental with limited mileage, you'll be charged an additional fee if you go above the daily mileage allowance. The mileage allowance for the whole rental duration is calculated as (the number of rental days X the daily mileage allowance). You do not have to stay within the daily allowance on every day, provided that the total miles used throughout the rental doesn't exceed the number of days X the daily limit.

When you decide to book a limited mileage car hire, we recommend checking the costs for excess mileage. These can be found in our T&Cs section.

Renting a Car in Edinburgh with Child Seats

You can use your own child seats for your rental, so long as they meet the legal safety requirements for use in Edinburgh.

You'll have the option to include them with your rental when you make a booking on the website. Child seats and booster seats are paid for in local currency when you collect the rental.

Hassle free 9 Seater Essential insurance options

Along with being friendly, easy to use and of course, stress free, we also offer two additional levels of insurance when you hire a 9 seater with us.

Essential Cover includes fire, weather, theft, damage caused to the vehicle, flushing the engine after misfuelling, key cover and more.

Our essential cover doesn't cover things like cleaning fees, mechanical repairs, third party injury, loss of theft/damage to content in the vehicle and other things. To view the detailed information see the terms and conditions on the extras page

Our essential cover, offered when you make your vehicle hire booking in Edinburgh, is a vehicle hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a wide-range of additional costs that standard insurance doesn't.

Essential cover appears as an optional extra in the vehicle hire insurance section. For some geographical/partner 9 seater rental combinations the cover isn't always offered.

Car rental throughout the COVID pandemic

During the COVID pandemic ensuring safety remains our highest priority. As before the crisis and throughout we offer free cancellation with a full refund on all rental cars. Whilst the current situation is ongoing, we have significantly reduced the amount of time it takes to process refunds, we process all refunds within 1 business day of receiving the customer cancellation request - with the funds usually clearing back to the customer's account in less than 7 business days.

Enhanced car hygeine processes at Edinburgh United Kingdom

All of our car rental partners are carrying out additional cleaning processes, following the applicable local regulations, throughout the ongoing pandemic. Here's an summary of the further measures being taken.

Europcar have implemented extra vehicle deep cleaning measures. Car keys are also disinfected between all rentals and placed in a sealed envelope once disinfected. A zero contact policy is in place at the collection area, with all desks cleaned between every customer interaction.

New protocols are being implemented by our car hire partner Greenmotion, including the installation of protection screens and hand sanitiser units at collection locations. Employees are also now wearing protective equipment such as masks and gloves. Each car is being thoroughly cleaned and sanitised between every rental.

Enterprise, Alamo and National locations in are providing a complete clean pledge. Including the deep cleaning every vehicle between each hire ,including disinfecting the car keys.

Prior to collection of all rentals, Hertz and Thrifty are carrying out a multi stage cleaning procedure, including thorough cleaning of the seats, door handles, steering wheel and keys.

We will continue to update this information as it becomes available.

Picking up your 9 Seater rental in Edinburgh without a credit card and other payment options.

You can use a Visa, Mastercard or an American Express debit card or credit card provided by a bank or credit card company when hiring a 9 seater on our website.

We accept a number of currencies including British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and South African Rand (ZAR).

It's worth bearing in mind that quite frequently 9 seater hire brands that do allow debit card at the desk are more expensive than 9 seater hire companies that accept credit card only.

One important thing to consider when deciding if you want to use a debit card on collection, 9 seater hire companies sometimes block an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, the credit card hold is often a large amount of money , if you choose to pay using a debit card this might be debited from your bank and not returned until weeks following your rental has ended.

Quite often, rentals that come with the Premium Cover option enable you to use a debit card when you pick up the vehicle without any extra fees. You can view if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the vehicle hire security deposit and insurance options on the extras page of our booking process.

Car hire terminology

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)

The rentals at Edinburgh on the site always include a full to fuel fuel policy.

You'll be asked to hold a deposit for fuel on your credit card when you pick up the rental. Ensure that you fill the rental up and return it full and there's nothing further to pay for fuel.

You might find full to empty fuel policies on some other websites that seem to be better deals. Be sure to check the terms and conditions for full to empty rentals as usually the admin and refuelling fees associated with full to empty fuel policies always make it more expensive than full to full .

9 seater car rental insurance options:

Vehicle rental in Edinburgh is insured fully with an insurance excess . You're offered the option to buy a policy to cover the excess when you make your booking. If you fail to insure the excess the amount held on your credit card could be at risk if the car is returned damaged or is stolen.

About Scotland

For people wanting to escape the city, you're spoiled for choice! Between Galashiels and its charming counterpart Livingston to more northern cities like Aberdeen there's a pace and size of city that will be just for you. If you fancy getting away from everything take your rental vehicle from Stress Free Car Rental and head Northern Scotland, why not take a ferry up to the Orkney Islands - the choice is yours!

Scotland is also an internationalist country with two major international airports. If you're arriving and departing Scotland from different airports, it's possible to pick up your car hire at Glasgow Airport and drop off the hire car at Edinburgh Airport or collect/drop off at any other airport in the UK. The prices displayed on the website always includes any one-way fees in the price displayed.

Scotland, with its incredible coastline, beautiful scenery and iconic cities like Glasgow packed with great architecture and stories, is a more appealing location to go to than ever . With easy-to-use transport links in Edinburgh on both public transport and by hire car it couldn't be easier to visit this historic country!

Why we're different

There's a huge amount of reasons why we're different from our rivals but to start, it's important to recognise that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our own frustration with the process of renting a vehicle.

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

We do not work with just any 9 seater hire providers. We're careful to only work with vehicle rental companies you can trust.

Stress Free Car Rental won't be beaten on price. Our price match guarantee means if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower cost, we'll match it.

Pricing for rentals in Edinburgh includes extra fees that other price comparison websites don't usually include - this makes sure that your experience is as straightforward as it can be.

Our advice to find the best cheap 9 Seater hire

Border crossing and one-way fees:

If you intend to drive the 9 seater over a border from Edinburgh into a different country, extra fees are normally charged by the car rental provider. Always check the terms and conditions for these fees before you book as it can be expensive. If you don't see them on the website, contact one of our car hire advisors and they'll be happy to help.

Additional drivers and child seats:

You'll find the prices of these on our extras page. We often have special promotions, including additional drivers in the price. Where free additional drivers are available, you'll see them listed on the search results page of website.

Consider the dates you're booking:

To bag yourself a deal for your vehicle rental in Edinburgh it pays to book in advance, especially during peak times like school holidays and Christmas. 9 seater rental can be in high demand in the summer months and often the supply of large vehicles is more restricted than most other types of rental. If you change your mind after you've booked with us, we include free cancellation, this means you can cancel and rebook at any point until 48 hours prior to collecting the car.

Fuel and mileage policies:

If you're comparing the options for your rental on different websites, be sure to factor in the mileage allowance and fuel policy. Many other websites hide this away in the terms and conditions. If you use more than your mileage allowance or rent a 9 seater with a full to empty fuel policy, you might be hit with some unexpected fees when you return the vehicle. Our site only includes full to full rentals in Edinburgh and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Security deposit and excess:

Ensure that you compare the amount you'll have to pay as a security deposit on your credit card. For cheaper 9 seater rentals, you'll be required to leave a higher security deposit, this is held on your card when you collect the car. You'll always see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.

Our Premium cover

Premium cover is the highest level of 9 seater hire cover we provide.

On our website it's possible to buy Premium Cover bundled with your vehicle rental, so that you understand the full cost of everything before starting your trip.

Lots of our customers decide to choose the Premium Cover option when they're are renting a vehicle because it usually brings the excess down to zero meaning that you have no large security deposit or vehicle hire insurance excess risk. Customers can also often pay with debit cards with Premium Cover if using a credit card is a problem.

So that you're able to understand all of the options regarding which 9 seater rental insurance product is best for you for your rental in Edinburgh, we work closely with our vehicle rental partners to give you the option to purchase a Premium cover product.

Selecting Premium Insurance is optional, you can also decide to purchase Premium Cover at the vehicle rental desk, It might be less expensive to book this up front on our website when you make your 9 seater hire booking.
