Why Stress Free Car Rental is different

There's a bucket load of reasons why we're different from our competitors but to start, it's important to recognise that Stress Free Car Rental was born out of our personal frustration with the process of renting a car.

The reason we decided to do things differently to other car rental websites is because we got fed up of seeing customers being hit with unexpected charges and thought we could provide a better service.

Pricing on our website includes added fees that other car hire websites often don't include - this makes sure that our process is as transparent as possible.

Stress Free Car Rental don't like to work with just any car rental providers. We're cautious to only work with car rental companies you can trust.

Car hire providers we list on the website include big car hire providers like Enterprise and Europcar there are some companies we know will not give you the experience or price that you deserve - so we do not include these on our website.

Stress Free Car Rental won't be beaten on price. Our price match promise means if you find the same hire car at a lower cost, we'll match it.

Stress Free Car Rental compares millions of car hire deals at 1000s of car rental locations to source the best deals and make booking them on the website as quick, easy and Stress Free as it should be

Hassle free Essential insurance options

Along with being friendly, easy to use and of course, stress free, we offer two additional levels of insurance when you book a vehicle with us.

Essential cover appears as an optional extra in the car hire insurance options. For some geographical/partner car rental combinations the cover isn't always available.

Essential cover doesn't cover things like loss of theft/damage to content in the car, third party injury mechanical repairs, cleaning fees. To view the detailed information see the T&Cs on the extras page

Essential Cover comes with key cover, flushing the engine after misfuelling, damage caused to the vehicle, theft, weather and fire and more.

Essential cover, offered at the same time as you make your car hire booking, is a car hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a range of additional charges that standard insurance does not.

We’ve made it ridiculously easy on the website to identify which car hire companies can accept a debit card. Simply use the filters on the second page to compare which car rental brands can accept your card type on collection.

When you opt to include Basic or Essential Cover for your car rental, this usually means that you’ll have to have a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the car. You’ll usually be given the opportunity to pay for a top up policy by the rental partner on collection, which then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Frequently, car rentals that include our Premium Cover option will enable you to use a debit card on collection with no additional charges. You can view if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the car hire security deposit and insurance options on the second step of our website booking process.

Car rental insurance, excess and security deposits

We understand how daunting and frightening choosing a car insurance product can be. The fees that make up the price of hiring a vehicle can be very confusing, these include:

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

Stress Free Car Rental offers 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 review the details of these on the extras page of our website when booking your rental.

Many car rental websites mask the price of insurance excess and security deposit costs in the terms and conditions. Customers are then shocked when the cash is taken from their debit card account or the amount is held on their credit card. We think this is wrong and can really obstruct your holiday plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.
