You can use a Visa, American Express or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card provided by your bank or credit card company when hiring a 8 seater with us.
One thing to think about when deciding if you'd prefer to use a debit card at the collection desk, 8 seater rental companies sometimes block an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, this is often a significant amount of money , if you choose to pay with debit card this might be debited from your bank and not returned until weeks following you've returned the vehicle.
When you include Basic or Essential Cover with your vehicle, this usually means that you will be required to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the vehicle. You'll more often than not be given the option to pay for a top up policy by the rental company on collection, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
Our website only compares 8 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 return it with a full tank. Look out for full to empty fuel policies you might see at a lower cost on other websites, full to empty usually means you should expect some expensive extra fees for fuel, we recommend to always check the terms and conditions for full to empty rentals.
Need an additional driver? look out for special discounts on our site for 8 seater hire with free extra drivers included. These can save you a small fortune compared with paying for additional drivers when you collect the vehicle.

Customers can also often collect the vehicle using debit cards with Premium Cover if using a credit card is a problem.

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 personal frustration with the process of renting a vehicle.
We won't work with just any 8 seater rental firms. We're cautious to only work with brands you can trust.
The reason we do things a bit differently is because we got frustrated with seeing people being hit with unexpected charges and thought we could provide a better service.
