We are based in Manchester UK and we are on a mission to make renting a car a Stress Free experience
Vehicle Makes at each car rental location can vary. The car rental company will always provide you with a car that’s the same size in terms of body style, passengers and luggage capacity but the exact make may vary from the one listed. If you have a preference for a particular make, at most car rental locations we provide options to reserve guaranteed models from selected suppliers . Use the filters on the website to find guaranteed model rentals.
Stress Free Car Rental only offer car hire that includes a full to full fuel policy. Full to full is always better value compared with other car rental fuel policies.
You can use the filters on our search page to find your ideal car rental, including rentals with an automatic gearbox, diesel fuel and reduced insurance excess options.
Car hire prices can vary significantly at different times of the year. peak holiday times are an important factor to recognise that affects car hire prices. Take this into account when planning your rental in advance.
Premium cover is the highest level of car hire insurance we provide.
A lot of our customers decide to choose the Premium Cover option when renting a vehicle because it usually lowers the security deposit for the excess to zero meaning that the customer has no large security deposit or car hire insurance excess risk. Customers can also often pay with debit cards with Premium Cover if using a credit card is a problem.
So that you can understand all of the options regarding which car rental insurance product is right for you, we work closely with our car rental partners to give you the option to rent a car including a Premium cover product.
