National Car Hire

National is the premium brand from the Enterprise group of companies. Like all the Enterprise fleet, National vehicles are usually less than 2 years old and, as you'll be served from the same office, you also benefit from Enterprise's award-winning levels of customer service.

In comparison to the sister Enterprise and Alamo brands, you will find that National's vehicles will be more expensive but the vehicles being offered are often of the more premium variety. In some countries, National vehicles also come with a slightly lower insurance excess and/or deposit amount.

We recommend National to those who frequently hire a vehicle, possibly for work, and believe it to be worth paying extra for top quality service and vehicles.

Hiring a car throughout the COVID pandemic

During the COVID pandemic ensuring the safety of our customers continues to be our number one priority. As before the crisis and throughout we include free cancellation with a full refund on all car rental including insurance. Whilst the current situation is ongoing, we have reduced our amount of time it takes to process refunds, we now process all refunds inside of 24 hours of receiving a customer cancellation request - with the funds usually clearing back to the customer's account in less than a week.

Improved hire car hygeine procedures

Our car hire partners are implementing advanced cleaning precautions, in line with local regulations, during the ongoing pandemic. Here's an overview of some of the further measures carried out.

Enterprise, Alamo and National locations in have implemented a complete clean pledge. Including the deep cleaning each vehicle between every rental .

We will continue to provide further information as it becomes available.

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.

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 are added at the time of collection. The additional driver fee is £18.33 per day (incl. VAT) to a maximum charge of £183.

As with the main driver, the additional drivers must be at least 25. Be aware that larger or more expensive vehicles require all drivers to be 30 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. Infant Seats, Child/Toddler Seats and Booster Seats are available and must be added on our Extrras page as part of your booking to be reserved.. All cost £12.69 per day to a maximum charge of £140.99. There is an extra one-way fee of £35 if you are not returning the child seat to the same location. You must fit the child seat yourself.

Be aware that child seats are mostly only available from airport and some station locations. If we offer them on the Extras page, they are available to be booked and we recommend you add them to your booking to help ensure availability.

GPS units are charged at £13.32 per day to a maximum of £91.65.

You will also be offered to extend your basic Roadside Assistance cover at the collection desk.

We recommend requesting any extras in advance as part of your booking to help ensure availability. All prices include VAT and all extras are paid for on collection.

Changes to length of rental

Customers are always advised to contact their rental office should they be late for collection. The supplier reserves the right to cancel your booking should you be more than 1 hour late unless agreed otherwise.

On returning the vehicle you will have a 29 minute grace period for late returns before you will be charged for a whole, additional day's rental.

There is no charge for returning a vehicle early.

It may be possible to extend your rental subject to vehicle availability. You must return in person with the vehicle to one of the supplier's offices to do this and a new booking will be created,

The maximum rental period is 89 days although you must return the vehicle for inspection every 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.

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.

Car hire terminology explained

Collision damage waiver (CDW)

Damage Liability
CDW insures the car for damage in a similar way the insurance cover you usually have on your own vehicle does. CDW includes an excess amount which you can cover separately (See Excess reimbursement insurance). Stress Free Car Rental also list cars on the site that include CDW with a zero excess

Third party liability cover

Third party liability insurance insures in case you cause an accident. If you do, it might injure or kill other people (such as your passengers, pedestrians or people in other vehicles), or damage their property (their vehicle, house or possessions, for example). As legally they need to be protected, you'd be responsible the cost of any damage, or treating injuries or financially covering loss of earnings, as well as the third party's legal costs and any court costs.

Third party liability is subject to an excess, this means you would have to pay the first part of any claim (usually between £900 to £1,500, varying dependent on the car, the deal and the country). If you choose to cover your excess amount, you will be refunded for all of the excess amount you have to pay. If you decide to take out Premium Cover, the excess amount is often reduced to zero.

Excess reimbursement insurance

Essential Cover
Choosing excess cover means you'll be reimbursed for the excess you have to pay to the car hire company when you drop off the car.

Excess insurance also usually covers other possible costs, like cleaning, towing, admin fees and misfuelling costs.

Theft liability insurance (theft protection)

It covers the amount due if the rental car is stolen. It is subject to an excess amount, this means you would be required to pay the first part of any claim (usually between £700 to £2,750, depending on the car, the country and the deal.

When you insure your excess with an excess reimbursement policy, however, you will be reimbursed for any of of the excess you have to pay (See our essential cover). With Premium Cover the excess amount is often reduced.

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)

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

You'll be asked to pay a small deposit for fuel on a credit card when you collect the hire car. Fill the car up and return it full and there will be no additional fees for fuel.

You might see full to empty fuel policies on other sites that seem to be offering better deals. Be sure to check the small print for full to empty rentals as usually the refuelling and admin costs associated with full to empty fuel policies make it much more expensive than full to full fuel policies.

Extra driver fees

Car rental contracts is between the car hire company and the one person that signs the agreement and will be the named driver. This requires that you will have to ask for any other drivers to be added, this usually comes with a cost (which can be up to £11a day ). We often list special offers that include extra drivers are free. Beware of being asked if you'd like to add a driver without being told the cost.

Hire car excess

Rental car excess
For rentals outside of the US and Canada there's usually an insurance excess to pay* - just like on your own car in the UK. The excess on hire cars can be very high. It's usually between £1,100 to £2,700. If you decide not to cover the insurance excess amount you will be liable to pay for damage to the car up to the excess . Take a look at our Premium Cover car hire options if you'd like to avoid having the excess amount blocked on your credit card .

Hiring a car with National without an Excess Held on Your Credit Card

Hiring a car with National without an Excess Held on Your Credit Card

The excess is the total amount you would be required to pay if the car is severely damaged, written off or stolen. However, the excess amount on hire cars can be expensive. It's normally between £850 to £3,000. 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 rental car, the excess is held on your card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. Pre Auth means that the amount isn't charged to your credit card as a normal payment, it's held as a pending payment until you return the car. You don't usually have to pay foreign currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions. As long as the vehicle is dropped off in the same condition as when it was collected, the amount is fully refunded to your card with nothing further to pay.

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

If you'd like to hire a car with a £0 or reduced insurance excess review our Premium Cover rental options.
