Why we're different

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

All our pricing for rentals in London includes additional fees that other websites often don't include - this ensures that our process is as clear-cut as it can be.

Our technology collects and compares millions of 13 seater hire prices at 1000s of vehicle rental locations to hunt down great deals and ensure that booking them on our website as quick, easy and Stress Free as possible

Our advice to discover a deal on your 13 Seater hire

Mileage and fuel policy:

When you're looking around for your vehicle rental on different websites, be cautious 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 the mileage allowance or rent a 13 seater with a full to empty fuel policy, you might be hit with some unexpected fees when you drop off the vehicle. We only offer full to full rentals in London and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Consider the time of year:

To find the best deals for your vehicle rental in London it pays to book in advance, especially during peak times like Summer holidays and easter. 13 seater hire can be in exceptionally high demand in the easter holidays and often the supply of large vehicles is more restricted than most other types of car. If the price drops after you've booked your rental, we include free cancellation, this means you can cancel at any point up until 48 hours prior to collecting the vehicle.

Car hire during the COVID pandemic

As always ensuring the safety of our customers remains our top priority. As before the crisis and throughout Stress Free Car Rental include free cancellation with a full refund on all car hire. During the pandemic, we've significantly reduced our cancellation and refund time, we now process all refunds within 24 hours of receiving a customer cancellation request - the refund usually clearing back to the customer's credit card in less than one week.
