Minibus Hire in Glasgow

Hire car terminology

Damage Liability

Collision damage waiver (CDW) is always included with all hire cars at Glasgow. CDW provides insurance protection for damage in a similar way the insurance cover you have on your personal vehicle does. CDW includes an excess amount which you can insure separately (See Excess reimbursement insurance). Our website also list car hire on the site that include CDW with no excess amount

Excess Insurance

Choosing this policy means you'll be refunded for the excess that's held on your credit card by the hire car company when you drop off the car.

This insurance also tends to cover other potential costs, such as towing, cleaning or admin fees, or misfuelling fees.

Car rental throughout the COVID pandemic

As always ensuring the safety of our customers remains our number one priority. As before the crisis and throughout Stress Free Car Rental include free cancellation with a full refund on all car hire including insurance. Throughout April and May, we've significantly reduced our amount of time it takes to process refunds, our team deal with all refunds inside of 1 business day of receiving a customer cancellation request - the funds usually clearing back to the customer's credit card in less than a week.

Improved rental car hygeine procedures at Glasgow United Kingdom

All of our car hire providers have implemented extra cleaning precautions, in line with local regulations, throughout the ongoing pandemic. The following is an summary of the further measures being taken.

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

New processes are now in place with Greenmotion, involving the installation of safety protection screens and hand sanitiser units at all locations. Employees are now wearing protective equipment including masks and gloves. All cars are being thoroughly sanitised between every rental.

Europcar have implemented extra car deep disinfecting measures. Car keys are also disinfected between all rentals and then kept in a sealed envelope once disinfected. Infection risk has been further reduced by ensuring that a zero contact policy is in place at the rental desks, with each rental desk cleaned between each customer collection.

Enterprise, Alamo and National locations in have implemented a complete clean pledge. This involves the deep cleaning each car between each hire ,including disinfecting the car keys.

We will continue to provide further information as soon as it becomes available.

Hassle free Essential insurance options

Along with being easy to use, friendly and of course, stress free, we offer two different levels of insurance when you hire a Minibus in Glasgow with us.

Essential cover appears as an option in the vehicle hire insurance options. For some partner/geographical Minibus rental combinations the cover isn't always offered.

Essential cover doesn't cover things like loss of theft/damage to content in the vehicle, third party injury mechanical repairs, cleaning fees. For more info see the T&Cs on the extras page of the website

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

Essential cover, offered at the same time as you make your vehicle hire booking, is a vehicle hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a range of extra costs that standard insurance doesn't.

Picking up your Minibus rental in Glasgow with no credit card and other ways to pay.

Pay with Visa, Mastercard or an American Express debit card or credit card issued by a bank or credit card company when hiring a Minibus on our website.

You can book using a large number of different currencies including US Dollars (USD), British Pounds (GBP), Euros (EUR), South African Rand (ZAR) and Canadian Dollars (CAD).

One important thing to consider when deciding if you'd prefer to use a debit card when collecting your Minibus , Minibus hire companies often block an excess on the lead drivers credit card, this is often a considerable amount of money , if you opt to pay using debit card this can be debited from your bank and not returned until a couple of weeks following completion of your rental contract.

We've made it really simple on the website to filter which X rental partners will accept debit card. Just use the filters on the search results page to compare which Minibus hire partners do accept your card type at the collection desk.

Most of the Minibus rental partners we include on the website accept a debit card when you collect the Minibus; some of these do have special terms and conditions related to them. Be sure that you understand the terms and conditions if you'd like to use a debit card at the desk when collecting the vehicle.

If you've opted for Essential or Basic Cover with your rental, it usually means that you'll have to have a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the vehicle. You'll more often than not be given the opportunity to buy a top up policy by the hire partner at the collection desk, which then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Quite often, Minibus rentals that come with our Premium Cover option enable you to use a debit card on collection without any additional fees. You can compare if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the vehicle hire security deposit and insurance alternatives on the second step of our website booking process.

Would you like us to accept payments with a method other than debit card and credit card? Do get in touch to let us know. We're always open to new ideas about how we can improve the service we offer to make booking your vehicle hire as Stress Free as it can be.

Don't forget that quite frequently Minibus rental brands that will allow debit card on collection are more costly than Minibus hire companies that accept credit card only.

It is good to understand the alternative currency and payment options for your Minibus rental, as some payments for add ons (such as Sat Nav and extra drivers) might have to be settled in local currency (by credit card or debit card) at the collection counter.

Why Stress Free Car Rental is different

Top tips to discover the best deal on your Minibus rental

Factor in the time of year:

To find the best deals for your vehicle rental in Glasgow, it makes sense to book early, especially during peak times like Easter and Christmas. Minibus hire can be in very high demand in the easter holidays and the supply of larger vehicles is more restricted than many other types of rental. If you change your mind or the price drops after you've booked with us, we include free cancellation, this means you can cancel and rebook at any point up until 48 hours prior to collecting the car.

Fuel and mileage policies:

If you're shopping around for your vehicle rental on different websites, be sure to check the mileage allowance and fuel policy. Many other websites hide this away in the T&Cs. If you use more than the mileage allowance or rent a Minibus with a full to empty fuel policy, you might face some unexpected fees when you drop off the vehicle. Our site only includes full to full rentals and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Excess and Security Deposit:

Always compare the amount you're required to leave as a security deposit on your credit card. Often, for cheaper Minibus rentals, you will be required to leave a much more expensive security deposit, this will be held on your credit card when you collect the car. You'll see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.

Child Seats and other extras:

You can see the cost of these on our extras page. Whenever available we have special promotions, including extra drivers in the price. Where free additional drivers are available, you'll see them displayed on the search results page of website.

Border crossing and one-way fees:

If you plan to drive your Minibus over a border into a different country from Glasgow additional fees are usually charged by the car hire provider. Be sure to check the T&Cs for these before you book as they can be expensive. If you don't see them on our website, please get in touch with one of our car hire advisors and they'll be happy to help.
