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:
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.
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.
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.
We'll process your refund in under 24 hours. All rentals booked with us can be cancelled up until 48 hours before you collect the vehicle
