Collecting your Minibus hire in Los Angeles with a debit card and other payment options.

We accept Visa, Mastercard or an American Express credit card or a debit card issued by a bank or credit card company when booking your Minibus on our website.

Quite often, Minibus rentals that include our Premium Cover option allow you to use a debit card on collection with no extra fees. You can review if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the vehicle rental security deposit and insurance alternatives on the second step of our website booking process.

It's worth bearing in mind that quite often Minibus rental partners that will accept debit card at the desk are more expensive than Minibus hire companies that accept credit card only.

It's useful to understand the payment and currency options for your Minibus hire, as some payments for extras (such as extra drivers and sat nav) might have to be settled in local currency (by credit card or debit card) when you pick up the Minibus.

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

Many of the Minibus rental companies we include on the website will accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the Minibus; but some of these do have different T&Cs related to them. Be sure that you understand the terms if you intend to use a debit card at the desk when collecting the vehicle.

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

If you choose Essential or Basic Cover for your rental, it often means that you'll be required to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the vehicle. You will more often than not be given the option to buy a top up policy by the hire partner on collection, which then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

We accept a huge number of different currencies including US Dollars (USD), British Pounds (GBP), Euros (EUR), South African Rand (ZAR) and Canadian Dollars (CAD).

Would you like us to accept payments using something other than debit card and credit card? Feel free to get in touch and let us know. We are always open to new ideas re how we can enhance the service we offer and make booking your vehicle hire as Stress Free as it can be.

Our advice to find a cheap Minibus hire

Consider the dates you're booking:

To find the best deals for your vehicle rental in Los Angeles, it makes sense to book , especially during peak times like school holidays and Christmas. Minibus hire can be in high demand in the summer months and often the supply of larger vehicles is more restricted than most other types of rental. If the price drops after you've booked , we include free cancellation, this means you can cancel and rebook at any point up until 48 hours prior to collecting the car.

Mileage and fuel policy:

When you are comparing the options for your rental on different websites, be cautious to factor in the mileage allowance and fuel policy. Some other websites hide this away in the terms and conditions. If you go over the mileage allowance or rent a Minibus with a full to empty fuel policy, you might face some unexpected fees when you return the vehicle. We only offer full to full rentals and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Security deposit and excess:

Be sure to compare the amount you'll have to pay as a security deposit on your credit card. Often, for cheaper Minibus rentals, you will be required to pay a more expensive security deposit, which is held on your card when you collect the car. You will see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.

Additional drivers and child seats:

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

If the car is returned damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you will be required to pay some or all of the excess.

When you pick up the vehicle, the insurance excess is held on your credit card as a 'pre-auth' transaction.

Why we're different

There's a bucket load of reasons why we're different from our rivals but to start, it's important to recognise that Stress Free Car Rental was born out of our own frustration with the process of renting a vehicle.

Our website checks millions of prices at 1000s of vehicle rental locations to find you the best offers and make booking them on our website as easy, quick and Stress Free as possible

Stress Free Car Rental work hard to ensure that we provide customers with all of the best Minibus rental prices with no nasty surprises.

Brands we work with 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.

Pricing on our website includes extra fees that other websites don't usually include - this makes sure that your experience is as transparent as possible.

We don't like to work with just any Minibus hire providers. We're careful to only work with vehicle rental companies you can trust.

The reason we do things a bit differently is because we got frustrated with seeing customers being hit with unexpected fees and thought we could do a better job.

We don't like to be be beaten on price. Our Minibus hire price match guarantee means if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower price, we'll match it.
