Car rental excess, security deposits and insurance

We understand how frightening choosing a car insurance product can be. The charges that are included in the price of hiring a car are often very confusing, these can include:

  • The cost of hiring the vehicle
  • Any extras (e.g. child car seats & sat nav)
  • Insurance costs

Many car rental websites mask the price of insurance excess and security deposit costs in the terms and conditions. Customers are then surprised when the cash 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.

On our website you'll find three options for car hire excess cover, basic, essential and premium and we help you find the hire car that suits you and your trip. You're able to view the details of these on the extras page of our website when booking your rental.
