Vehicle Models at each van hire location are variable.

Stressfreecarrental.com only offer van rental that includes a full to full fuel policy. Full to full is always cheaper compared with other van rental fuel policies.
We understand how frightening choosing a rental van insurance product can be. The additional charges that are included in the price of hiring a van are often very confusing, these can include:
A lot of van rental websites mask the insurance excess and security deposit costs in the fine print. Customers are then surprised when the amount is taken from the debit card account or the amount is held on their credit card. We think this is unfair and can really hinder your plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.

All of the van rentals on our website include all extra fees including everything that you're required to pay when you pick up the van, including (but not limited to) one way fees, child seats and young driver fees.

It can be good to know the alternative payment and currency options for your van rental in , as often payments for add ons (such as extra drivers and sat nav) might have to be paid in the local currency (by credit card or debit card) at the collection counter.
It's important to consider when deciding if you want to use a debit card when collecting your van, van rental companies often hold an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess is often a significant amount of money and if you opt to pay using a debit card this will be debited from your bank and not refunded until a couple of weeks after completion of your rental contract.
When you opt to include Essential or Basic Cover with your rental, this usually means that you'll need a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the van. You will more often than not be given the option to purchase a top up policy by the hire partner when you collect the van, this then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
Would you like us to take payment with a method other than credit card or debit card? Do get in touch and let us know. We're always open to ideas about how we can enhance the service we offer and make paying for your van hire as Stress Free as it can be.
