As well as being friendly, easy to use and of course, stress free, we offer two different levels of insurance when you hire a 9 seater with us.
Essential cover will appear as a choice in the vehicle hire insurance options. For some partner/geographical 9 seater rental combinations the cover isn't always offered.
Essential Cover comes with fire, weather, theft, damage caused to the vehicle, flushing the engine after misfuelling, key cover and much more.
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. For more details see the T&Cs on the extras page of the website
Premium insurance is the highest level of 9 seater hire insurance we offer.
Choosing Premium Insurance is completely optional, you can also choose to purchase Premium Cover at the vehicle hire desk, it's often less expensive to book this in advance on our website at the same time as you make your 9 seater rental booking.
You're able to buy Premium Cover alongside your 9 seater rental, so that you know the exact price of everything before you pay.
Many of our clients decide to choose the Premium Cover option when hiring a vehicle because it usually lowers the security deposit for the excess to zero meaning that the customer has no large security deposit or vehicle rental insurance excess risk. You can also often collect the vehicle using debit cards with Premium Cover if using a credit card is a problem.
If you're trying to find a 9 seater rental with no deposit and no excess, check out our premium cover options. Premium Cover reduces the excess and security deposit on your vehicle rental (sometimes to zero).
Would you like to hire a 9 seater without a credit card? We include all the payment options allowing you to pick up your 9 seater hire using a debit card. You can use the filter section on our search page to find them.
Need an additional driver? look out for special bundles on our site for 9 seater hire with free extra drivers included. These offers can save you money compared to paying for additional drivers when you collect the vehicle.
All of the 9 seaters on our website include free cancellation and a price match guarantee. This means you can change your mind and cancel your rental with a full refund up to 48 hours before you pick up the vehicle.
Our website only compares 9 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 the fuel will be held on your credit card when you pick up the vehicle and refunded when you drop it off full. Look out for full to empty fuel policies you might see at a lower cost on other sites, full to empty usually comes with some hefty extra fees for fuel, so always check the T&Cs for full to empty rentals.
You can pay with Visa, American Express or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card provided by a bank or credit card company when booking your 9 seater on our website.
One thing to think about when deciding if you'd like to use a debit card when collecting your 9 seater, 9 seater rental companies often hold an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess is often a considerable amount of money and if you decide to pay with a debit card this can be debited from your bank and not refunded until weeks following completion of your rental contract.
Would you prefer us to allow you to pay using something other than credit card or debit card? Please get in touch and let us know. We're always open to ideas re how to enhance the service we offer to make arranging your vehicle hire as Stress Free as it can be.
When you include Essential or Basic Cover for your rental, this usually means that you'll be required to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the vehicle. You will more often than not be given the opportunity to pay for a top up policy by the hire partner when you collect the vehicle, this then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
There's a bucket load 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 frustration with the process of hiring a vehicle.
Brands we work with include the larger vehicle hire companies like Enterprise and Europcar there are some companies we know will not give you the price or experience that you deserve - so we do not list these on our website.
Our website collects and compares millions of 9 seater rental prices at 1000s of vehicle hire locations to obtain great offers and make booking them on our website as quick, easy and Stress Free as it can be
The reason we do things a bit differently is because we got annoyed with seeing people being hit with unexpected fees and felt like we could provide a better service.
If your plans change we'll process your refund in under 24 hours. All rentals booked with us can be cancelled up until 48 hours before collecting the vehicle
All car hire brands on our website are following local government guidelines re vehicle sterilisation and social distancing at the collection desk.
