Paying for your RV hire

Collecting your RV hire with no credit card and other payment options.

You can use a Visa, American Express or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card issued by your bank or credit card company when renting a RV on our website.

It's worth bearing in mind that often RV rental brands that will allow debit card at the desk are more costly than those that accept credit card only.

It's practical to understand the alternative currency and payment options for your RV hire, as some payments for add ons (like Sat Nav and extra drivers) might need to be paid for in local currency (either in cash or by credit card) at the collection counter.

Would you like us to allow you to pay using something other than debit card and credit card? Do get in touch to let us know. We are open to new ideas about how we can improve our service to make booking your vehicle hire a Stress Free experience.

We accept a range of currencies including Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Australian Dollars (AUD).

One thing to think about when deciding if you should use a debit card at the collection desk, RV hire companies frequently block an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the credit card hold can be a large amount of money , if you choose to pay with debit card this will be debited from your account and not refunded until a couple of weeks after completion of your rental contract.

We've made it ridiculously easy on the website to filter which RV rental brands will accept debit card. Simply use the filters on the search results page to compare which RV rental brands do accept your preferred card type when you pick up the vehicle.

Many of the RV hire companies we include accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the RV; often these do have special terms and conditions related to them. Always be sure to review the terms if you intend to use a debit card at the desk when collecting the vehicle.

Car rental terminology

Third party liability cover

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

Third party liability is subject to an excess, this means you would need to pay the first part of any claim (usually between £800 to £2,000, depending on the value of the car, the deal and the country). If you choose to insure your excess , you'll be refunded for all of the excess amount you have to pay. Or if you take out Premium Cover, the excess is often reduced to zero.

Theft liability insurance (theft protection)

Theft liability insures the amount due if the rental car is stolen. Theft liability usually includes an excess amount, which means you would need to pay the first part of any claim (usually between £900 to £2,750, depending on the car, the country and the deal.

When you insure your excess , however, you'll be refunded for the of the excess amount you have to pay (See our essential cover). With Premium Cover the excess is often reduced to zero.
Theft liability cover (theft protection)

Car Rental excess

Car Rental excess
For rentals outside of the US and Canada there's usually an excess to pay* - this is similar to the excess on your own car in the UK. However, the excess on rental cars is very high. It's often between £1,000 to £3,000. If you fail to cover the insurance excess amount you could be liable to pay for damage to the car up to the value of the excess . Take a look at our Premium Cover car rental options if you'd prefer not to have the excess amount held on your card when you pick up the car.

Essential Cover

Choosing excess cover ensures you'll be reimbursed for the excess you have to pay to the hire car company .

Excess reimbursement insurance also usually covers other possible costs, such as towing, cleaning or admin fees, or misfuelling fees.
Essential Cover

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 full to fuel fuel policy.

When you collect you rental you'll be required to hold a small deposit for fuel on a credit card when you collect the hire car. Ensure that you fill the rental up and return it full and there's nothing further to pay for fuel.

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

Additional driver costs

Car rental contracts is between the hire car company and the one individual who signs the contract and will be the main driver. This means you have to ask for other drivers to be added, and this usually comes with a cost ( can be up to £11a day ). However, there are occasional special offers where extra drivers are free. Always be cautious of being asked if you'd like to add a driver without being told the price.
Additional driver fees

Damage Liability

Collision damage waiver (CDW)
It covers the car for accident damage in the same way the insurance you usually have on your own vehicle does. CDW includes an excess amount which you can choose to cover with an additional policy (See Excess reimbursement insurance). Our website also include cars that include CDW with a zero excess

Hiring a Car with Unlimited Mileage

How to Rent a Car with Unlimited Mileage

We offer unlimited and limited mileage rentals.

Limited mileage rentals are often less expensive than unlimited. When considering limited mileage rentals, the daily mileage allowance will always be clearly visibile. If you choose a rental with limited mileage, you'll be charged a per mile additional fee if you exceed the daily mileage allowance. The total mileage allowance for the whole rental period is calculated as (the number of hire days X the daily allowance). You don't have to remain within the daily limit on every day, as long as the total miles used throughout the rental doesn't exceed the number of days X the daily limit.

If you choose a limited mileage rental, we recommend checking the costs for excess mileage. You'll find these in our T&Cs section. It's also possible to use the search filters on our website to find hire cars including unlimited mileage which will save money if you're planning a longer journey

How to Hire a Car with no Insurance Excess

The insurance excess is the amount you would be liable to pay if the car is written off, severely damaged or stolen. The excess on rental cars can be high. It's often between £850 to £2,100. 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.

On collection of the vehicle, the excess is held on your card as a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the amount isn't taken from your credit card as a regular transaction, it's held as a pending transaction until you return the vehicle. You don't normally pay foreign currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised payments. As long as the car is returned in the same condition as when it was collected, this excess amount will be fully refunded to your credit card without anything additional to pay.

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

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

How to Rent a Car with a Reduced Security Deposit

Top tips to find a deal on your RV rental

Mileage and fuel policy:

If you are looking around for your rental on other websites, be sure to factor in the fuel policy and mileage allowance. Some other websites hide this away in the T&Cs. If you go over your mileage allowance or hire a RV with a full to empty fuel policy, you could face some unexpected fees when you drop off the vehicle. Our site only includes full to full rentals and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Security deposit and excess:

Ensure that you check the amount you'll have to leave as a security deposit on your card. Often, for cheaper RV rentals, you will be required to pay a more expensive security deposit, which will be held on your card when you pick up. You will see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.

Additional drivers and child seats:

You can see the cost of these on our extras page. Whenever available we have special promotions, including extra drivers in the price. When free additional drivers are available, you can find them clearly displayed on the search results page of website.

Border crossing and one-way fees:

If you intend to drive the RV over a border into a different country, additional fees are normally charged by the car hire provider. Always check the T&Cs for these fees before you book as they can be quite expensive. If you can't find them on our website, get in touch with one of our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

Why Stress Free Car Rental is different

There's a wide variety of reasons why we are different from our competitors but to start, it's important to understand that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our own frustration with the process of renting a vehicle.

The reason we do things differently to other vehicle rental websites is because we got frustrated with seeing people being hit with unexpected fees and thought we could provide a better service.

Stress Free Car Rental's Premium cover

Premium insurance is the highest option for RV hire insurance we offer.

We want you to be able to make an informed decision relating to which RV rental insurance product is right for you, we work closely with our vehicle rental partners to provide you the option to purchase a Premium cover product.

Many of our clients choose the Premium Cover option when hiring a vehicle because it usually brings the excess down to zero meaning that you have no large security deposit or vehicle hire insurance excess risk. Customers can also often pay with debit cards with Premium Cover if credit card is a problem.

Stress Free Essential insurance options

As well as being easy to use, friendly and of course, stress free, we offer two different levels of insurance when you hire a RV seater with us.

Essential cover, offered when you make your vehicle booking, is a vehicle hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a range of extra costs that standard insurance doesn't.
