Keddy Car Hire

Keddy is a cheaper brand offered by Europcar with a focus on fair prices for the leisure industry. You still have many of the benefits of booking with a large company like Europcar but with a simplified selection of economy and standard vehicles.

Keddy is a popular choice for those customers who want to book with a well-known and trusted brand but are still looking for good value for money.

Rental car jargon explained

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)
The rentals on the site come with a full to fuel fuel policy.

When you collect you rental you'll be asked to hold a deposit for fuel on a credit card when you pick up the car. Ensure that you fill the car up and drop it off full and there will be no additional fees for fuel.

You will see full to empty policies on some other sites that seem to be better deals. Be sure to check the terms and conditions for full to empty rentals as usually the refuelling and admin fees associated with full to empty fuel policies always make it much more expensive than full to full fuel policies.

Hire car excess

For rentals outside of the US and Canada there's usually an insurance excess to pay* - this is similar to the excess on your own car in the UK. However, the excess on rental cars can be high. It's usually between £1,200 to £3,000. If you decide not to cover the insurance excess you could be liable to pay for any damage to the car up to the value of the excess . Check out the Premium Cover car hire options if you'd prefer not to have a large amount blocked on your credit card when you collect the car.
Rental car excess

Additional driver fees

Additional driver charges
A car hire agreement is between the hire car company and the one individual that signs the agreement and will be the main driver. This requires that you have to ask for any other drivers to be added, this usually comes with a cost ( can be up to £12a day or even more). However, there are occasional promotions where extra drivers are free. Beware of being asked if you'd like to include a driver without being informed of the cost.

Theft liability cover (theft protection)

It covers the amount due if the hire car is stolen. It is subject to an excess amount, this means you would have to pay the first part of an insurance claim (normally between £950 to £3,000, depending on the deal, the car rental company and the location.

If you choose to insure your excess , however, you will be reimbursed for any of of the excess you have to pay (See our essential cover). With Premium Cover the excess can be reduced to zero.

CDW (Collision damage waiver)

Collision damage waiver (CDW)
It covers the car for accident damage in the same way the insurance you usually have on your personal vehicle does. CDW includes an excess which you can choose to insure separately (See Excess reimbursement insurance). Stress Free Car Rental also list car hire that include CDW with a zero excess

Excess Insurance

Choosing this policy means you'll be reimbursed for the excess that's held on your credit card by the rental car company .

This insurance also tends to cover other possible costs, like cleaning, towing, admin fees and misfuelling fees.
Essential Cover

Third party liability insurance

Third party liability cover
Third party liability insurance provides protection in case you cause an incident. If you do, it could kill or injure others (such as your passengers, people in other vehicles or pedestrians), or damage their property (their vehicle, house or possessions, for example). Since they need to be covered, you'd be responsible any claim, or treating injuries or financially covering their loss of earnings, as well as the third party's legal fees and any court costs.

Third party liability is subject to an excess, which means you'll have to pay the first part of any claim (normally between £750 to £2,000, depending on the value of the car, the deal and the country). If you choose to insure your excess amount, you will be reimbursed for all of the excess amount you have to pay. If you decide to take out Premium Cover, your excess amount is often reduced .

The excess is the total amount you would be liable to pay if the car is severely damaged, written off or stolen. The excess on rental cars can be expensive.

If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll be required to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

When you arrive to collect the hire car, the insurance excess is held on your card as a 'pre authorised' transaction.

You don't normally pay currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions. As long as the rental car is dropped off in the same condition as when it was collected, the excess amount will be fully refunded to your card with nothing additional to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the excess is taken from your account and fully refunded when the vehicle is returned. If you intend to use a debit card on collection, as the excess can be high, it's recommended to buy Premium Cover on our website or to pay for top up insurance at the rental desk.

Driver Requirements

When collecting the vehicle, the lead driver must present the following:

  • Valid driver's license
  • Credit or debit card in the lead driver's name
  • Booking confirmation email
  • UK Residents: DVLA License Summary Report or Check Code
  • Non-UK Residents: Passport, proof of home address (e.g. utility bill or bank statement) and return travel (e.g. flight) ticket

We recommend UK residents also bring an additional form of identification with further proof of your home address.

Security Deposit

When collecting your vehicle you will be required to leave a security deposit of your estimated rental charges PLUS £700 on your card. This will be refunded on return so long as your vehicle is not stolen or damaged.

Most major credit and debit cards are accepted including American Express, Diners Club, Mastercard and Visa.

Fuel Policy

Your fuel options will be explained on collection. As a general rule you will save money choosing "Full to Full" and filling the vehicle up yourself prior to its return.

Mileage Policy

Limited

You are limited to 200mile per day before incurring additional charges. This is often a cheaper option but, if you will be travelling large distances, you may wish to choose a product that includes Unlimited Mileage.

Fees and Taxes

All taxes are included in this rate.

Admin fees: Please also be aware that most suppliers charge administration fees following damages or for processing fines. Keddy by Europcar charge a £40 GBP administration fee per incident should there be any accidents, theft or parking/traffic infringements.

Vehicle Collection

Directions

On Site (Shuttle): The collection desk is on airport premises and a short transfer away.

Driver's License

The renter and any additional drivers must each present a valid driver's license. The driver's license may not expire during the term of the rental. Europcar's basic rule for the UK is that all drivers must be 22 or older and have had their license for at least 12 months prior to the collection date.

If the License is in a language other than English, a certified English Translation or International Driver permit is strongly recommended. In all cases, a valid Driver License issued from your home country must be provided. You will not be allowed to rent with only an International Driver Permit.

DVLA License Summary
Customers with a UK driver's license should also provide a License Summary report which you can get for free online from the DVLA. Enter the necessary details and you will get to the 'View you driving licence' page. From here:

  • Click on the tab named 'Get your check code'
  • Click on the 'Create a Code' button.
If you have a printer you can click the link 'Print or save a driving summary' and print a copy of your Licence Summary. If you don't have a printer, just take a note of the Unique Code that was given and share this at the collection desk.

If you have anything other than a minor endorsement, you should email us with the details as you may not be allowed to rent.

Credit/Debit Card

When you collect your vehicle you must present a valid credit card or debit in the lead driver's name on which a security deposit ( rental charges PLUS £700 ) will be charged.

This amount is reserved on your card until you return the vehicle.

The supplier accepts all major credit cards (Visa, AMEX, Master Card, Diners Club and Euro Card). Visa and Mastercard debit cards are also accepted.

For credit cards, the security deposit is reserved on your card until you return the vehicle. For debit cards the payment is taken from your account and refunded on return but, depending on your bank, this can take 4-7 days. Purchasing additional cover at the collection desk will reduce the size of this deposit.

Rental Agreement

Once your paperwork has been inspected, you will be asked to sign a Rental Agreement. This is a contract between you and the car hire company and contains the terms and conditions for your rental. The agreement may include some location-specific conditions as well as setting out the limitations of any cover you have and the extra costs you may be liable for. You will be given the keys once you and any additional drivers have signed the agreement but don't rush, once you've signed you are legally bound to the terms of that document.

Cross Border Rules

Vehicles hired in the UK may be taken to other countries outside the United Kingdom but only by purchasing Europcar's Europdrive Package at the collection desk. The cost is £95.83 per remtal and includes the provision of a VE103B consent form for proof that you have permission to take the vehicle abroad.

If your rental originates in Northern Ireland there is a reduced rate for travel to the ROI (1- 2 day = £30.00; 3 - 4 day = £64.50; 5 - 6 day = £90.00; 7 - 10 day = £130.00; 11+ day = £142.00).

Late Collection

If you will be later for collection, customers are always advised to contact their rental office should they be more than 30 mins late for collection to avoid cancellation of their booking. If you're collecting from an airport but are delayed, the desk will usually remain open if you provided a valid a flight number as part of your booking. It is standard practice in the car hire industry to charge you an extra Out Of Hours fee if the branch has to remain open beyond their normal hours for you to arrive - Europcar will charge you £50 for this.

Insurance and Cover

Included in the price

This product includes Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) with Theft Protection and Third Party Liability Cover. This means that you are insured for damage to or theft of the vehicle and also against any third party claims. Should there be a claim, you will be liable up to the value of the excess payment unless additional insurance is taken out.

24/7 Roadside Assistance is provided but you may be liable for the costs should you deemed to be at fault.

Exclusions

The basic policy does not include cover for medical claims by you or your passengers or cover for your personal possesions.

Damage to glass/windows, lights and tyres/wheels is not included in the standard CDW policy. Cover for these items can be added by taking out extra cover either on our site or at the collection desk.

Lastly, you are also not covered for breakdown recovery/assistance for flat tyres or faults where you are responsible (e.g. lost keys or mis-fueling). You can extend your level of cover at the collection desk.

Insurance Excess

This vehicle comes with basic cover for theft or damage to the vehicle.

Should there be any damage, you will be liable for up to £1100.00 inclusive of taxes.

Both Stress Free and Europcar offer excess protection products to provide extra cover for this.

Please pay attention to the procedure for reporting an incident which will be explained in your rental agreement at the collection desk. Failing to follow this procedure could result in you being liable for the full value of the claim.

Additional Info

Fuel Options

Depending on the supplier, you will typically have two choices when it comes to paying for fuel.

  • Full to Full: This is usually the most cost effective option. The vehicle will be fuill when you collect and you must fill it up again just prior to return. If you select this policy and do not re-fill the vehicle, the supplier will charge you for the fuel you have used at a price that is often higher than would be charged at a local service station.
  • Pre-paid: This is the most convenient option. You pre-pay your tank of fuel (including a service charge) which means you collect the vehicle full and can return it empty at no extra charge. Note that you will not be refunded for fuel you do not use. Some suppliers give us the "pre-paid" rate where we include this in your price but usually we offer "Full to Full" and you would ask to pre-pay your tank at the collection desk.
XXX Your fuel policy options will be explained at the collection desk.

Additional Drivers

Additional drivers can be added at the time of collection. The additional driver fee is £11.66 per driver, per day to a maximum charge of £116.66 per driver.

The same age and license conditions listed for the lead driver will also apply to each additional driver. Be aware that larger or more expensive vehicles require all drivers to be 25 or older.

Other Extras

When driving in the UK, any child who is under 12 years old or less than 135cm (4ft 5in) must use a child seat. Europcar offers the following options:

  • Child seat for 1-3 years/9-18 kg
  • Child seat for 4-7 years/15-30 kg
  • Child seat for 0-12 month/0-13 kg
  • Child booster seat (Less than 135cm)

In the UK, you will be charged £10.83 per day for a child seat or £5pd for a booster seat (both to a maximum charge of 10 days).

GPS units are also available for £12.49 per day (max £124.90)..

All extras should be requested as part of your booking to ensure availability and all extras are paid for on collection.

Changes to length of rental

Most suppliers have a small grace period for late returns (Europcar state 30 mins) but it is always advisable to ensure the supplier is aware of late returns or extensions to your rental. Often the charges for this will be reduced or waived when the supplier is informed in advance.

You may return your vehicle early; there will be no extra charge for this but nor will you be refunded for any unused days.

You may extend your rental by contacting the supplier at least 2 hours before the end of the rental. You will still need to return the vehicle to a supplier office and enter a new rental agreement.. The maximum Length of Rental is 28 days

General Terms

Cancellations
It is free to cancel your booking at any time until 48 hours before collecting the vehicle. Once within 48 hours of collection, you will not be able to cancel your booking and any payments made cannot be refunded.

Amendments
If you wish to make changes to your booking, you will most likely be required to cancel and rebook. There is no cost for cancellations. If you only wish to change your flight or phone number, you can email our customer services team on help@stressfreecarrental.com.

Refunds after vehicle collection
The suppler may refuse collection of your vehicle for reasons such as not being fit to drive, missing required identification or not having the correc type of payment card in the lead driver's name with sufficient funds available. In the event of such a refusal, no payments made will be refunded.

The supplier does not offer credit or refunds for early returns of the vehicle.

In the event of "Delayed Charges" (fines, motorway tolls, failing to refuel, extra days, damages, loss and any associated admin charges), your Security Deposit may only be part-refunded.

Vehicle Types
Unless we indicate a "guaranteed model", vehicles are reserved by class of vehicle and not by make and model. The vehicles displayed are the commonly used models for our partners in your chosen country. If that particular vehicle is not available, the supplier will typically offer another vehicle of the same or higher class at no additional cost.

Disabled Passengers
If you are travelling with disabled passengers, be sure to forward your confirmation email to help@stressfreecarrental.com with any special requirements and we will forward these to the supplier for you. We can't offer any guarantees that they will be able to help but we're happy to try. If you're collecting from an airport, providing your flight number will help.

Disabled Drivers
Most suppliers are able to provide left and right hand controls, often at no extra cost. Please contact us if you require assistance or further information and we'll be happy to enquire on your behalf.
