Rental van terms explained

Theft liability cover (theft protection)

Van hire at Manchester is insured for theft liability ,this is included in the price ( with an excess amount which is clearly displayed on our website).

Theft liability covers the amount due if the rental van is stolen. Theft liability usually includes an excess amount, which means you'll have to pay the first part of any claim (usually between £1,000 to £2,750, depending on the van, the country and the deal.

Van hire in Manchester United Kingdom made easy

We are based in Manchester UK and we're on a mission to make renting a van a Stress Free experience

Van hire prices can vary greatly at different times of the year. Christmas is an important factor to recognise that influences van rental prices. Take this into account when planning your rental in advance.

Stress Free Car Rental only offer van hire that includes a full to full fuel policy. Full to full is always a better deal compared with other van rental fuel policies.

Vehicle Makes at each van rental location are variable. You will always be provided with a van that’s the same size in terms of body style, passengers and capacity but the exact model may vary from the van booked. If you have a preference for a particular model, at most van rental locations we offer pre bookable guaranteed models from selected van rental companies . You can use the filters on the website to find guaranteed model deals.

Hiring a Van in Manchester without an Insurance Excess

Your hire van will already be covered for theft and accidents included in the hire price you'll see displayed on the website. This type of insurance is often referred to as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

Although all of our rental vans in Manchester include CDW in the price , there's usually an insurance excess, which is held on your credit card on collection. The excess is the amount you would be required to pay if the vehicle is severely damaged, written off or stolen. However, the excess on hire vans can be very high. It's normally between £800 to £3,000, depending on the van, the country and the deal. If you return the van damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you will have to pay some or all of the excess.

On collection of the rental van, the insurance excess is held on your card as something called a 'pre-auth' transaction. Pre Auth means that the amount is not charged to your credit card as a normal payment, it's held as a pending payment until you return the van. You don't usually pay foreign currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions. As long as the rental van is returned in the same condition as when you collected it, the excess amount is fully refunded to your credit card with nothing further to pay.

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

To view rental options in Manchester with a £0 or reduced insurance excess take a look at our Premium Cover options.

Van Hire in Manchester including Cross Border Fees

If you want to pick up your van hire in Manchester and take it over the border into a different country, you should always review the terms and conditions. Almost all van hire brands require that you let them know when you collect the van; and will charge extra fees to top up your insurance. If you do not let them know, it's possible that the rental van will not be insured when you cross over into a different country.

You'll find the details of cross border policies by checking the Rental terms and viewing the Cross Border Rules section.

If you're struggling to find the cross border information get in touch with one of our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

How to Rent a Van in Manchester with a Low Security Deposit

At the collection desk, you will often be asked to leave a security deposit on a debit card or credit card. The security deposit can vary significantly dependent on the make and model of the van and the insurance excess amount. Car rental Security deposits in Manchester can vary between £0 and £2,000.

We compare all of the van hire options with a low security deposit and in some instances no deposit at all except for fuel. If you choose to book a rental in Manchester with Premium Cover included, you can reduce your deposit to cover only the cost of a full tank of fuel (usually less than £100), this is fully refunded to your card when the van is returned with a full tank.
