Why Stress Free Car Rental is different

There's a huge amount of reasons why we are 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 car.

The reason we decided to do things differently to other car rental websites is because we got fed up of seeing customers having trips ruined by a bad car rental experience and thought we could provide a better service.

Stress Free Car Rental collects and compares millions of car hire deals at 1000s of car rental locations to find you amazing deals and ensure that booking them on our website as quick, easy and Stress Free as it should be

Stressfreecarrental.com provide our customers with all of the best car rental deals in USA with no unexpected fees.

Stress Free Car Rental won't be beaten on price. Our price match guarantee means if you find the same hire car at a lower cost, we'll match it.

Car hire providers we list on the website include the larger car hire providers like Hertz and Enterprise there are some companies we know will not give you the experience or price that you deserve - so we don't list these on our website.

Our pricing always includes additional fees that other car rental websites don't usually include - this makes sure that your experience is as transparent as it can be.

Our advice of things to check before driving away your vehicle hire

You will have received car rental location collection instructions with the confirmation email. Take time to understand how to find the car rental collection location before you set off

If you've bought Premium excess cover on our web site or have a different insurance policy, always take time to check the vehicle for damage. We also recommend taking photos on your phone of each panel of the car. If there is damage on the car that is not highlighted in your rental agreement you should inform the car rental company

You should inspect alloy wheels and door locks for issues as well. Locks and wheels are easy to miss when you're in a rush to start your trip

Spending a little time to take photos and report any issues, whether internal or external, will help to avoid any problems with the car rental provider when you return the car

All the vehicles displayed on our web site include a full to full fuel policy. You should check that the fuel tank is full before you set off. if you find that it isn't you should inform the car hire company immediately

Before driving away ,review the carhire T&Cs. There might be extra charges for crossing borders etc so ensure that you understand these.

Be sure to double check the fuel type for the vehicle and inspect which side of the car the fuel cap is on

Beside the exterior, you should also spend time documenting all damage to the inside of the vehicle and reporting it to the vehicle hire company before starting your trip

Car rental insurance, excess and security deposits

We understand how daunting picking a car insurance product can be. The fees that are included in the price of hiring a vehicle are often very confusing, these can include:

  • The cost of hiring the vehicle
  • Any extras (e.g. child car seats & sat nav)
  • Insurance costs

Stress Free Car Rental offers three options for car hire excess cover, premium, essential and basic and we help you find the hire car that suits you, your family and your trip. You're able to review the details of these on the extras page of our website when making a booking.

Many hire car websites hide the costly insurance excess and security deposit costs in the fine print. Customers are then shocked when the cash is taken from the debit card account or the amount is held on their credit card. We think this is unfair and can really obstruct your plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.

Picking up your USA Car rental without a credit card.

We accept Visa, American Express or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card provided by your bank or credit card company when hiring a car on our website.

Would you like us to allow you to pay using something other than credit card or debit card? Feel free to get in touch to let us know. We're open to ideas re how we can improve the service we offer and make paying for your car hire a Stress Free experience.

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

Usually, car rentals that come with our Premium Cover option allow you to use a debit card when you pick up the car with no extra charges. You can review if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the different car rental excess and insurance alternatives on the extras page of the website booking process.

When you include Basic or Essential Cover with your rental, this usually means that you will have to have a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You'll more often than not be given the option to purchase a top up policy by the hire company on collection, which then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

It's worth bearing in mind that often car hire partners that will allow debit card on collection are not as cost effective as car hire companies that accept credit card only.

It's useful to know the currency and payment options for your car rental in USA, as payments for extras (such as extra drivers and child seats) might need to be paid in local currency (either in cash or by credit card) at the collection counter.

Stress Free Car Rental's Premium cover option

Premium cover is the highest option for car hire cover we provide.

Lots of our customers choose the Premium Cover option when they're are renting a car because it usually brings the excess down to zero meaning that you have no large security deposit or car hire insurance excess risk. Customers can also often pay with debit cards with Premium Cover if credit card is a problem.

So that you're able to understand all of the options relating to which car rental insurance product is best for you, we work closely with our car rental partners to give you the ability to purchase a Premium cover product.

Choosing Premium Cover is optional, you can also decide to buy Premium Cover at the car rental counter, it's often less expensive to buy this up front on our website at the same time as you make your car hire booking.

On our website it's possible to buy Premium Cover bundled with your vehicle rental, so that you understand the cost of everything before starting your trip.
