There's a huge amount of reasons why we're different from our competitors but to start, it's important to recognise that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our own frustration with the process of hiring a car.
We do not work with just any car rental providers. We're careful to only work with brands you can trust.
Pricing includes added fees that other websites don't usually display - this makes sure that your experience is as straightforward as possible.
We don't like to be be beaten on price. Our price match promise means if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower cost, we'll match it.
Our website compares millions of cheap car hire deals at 1000s of car hire locations to find you amazing deals and make booking them on our website as easy, quick and Stress Free as it should be
The reason we do things differently to other car rental websites is because we got fed up of seeing people getting shortchanged and thought we could provide a more transparent service.
Premium cover is the highest level of car hire insurance we provide.
You're able to buy Premium Cover bundled with your car rental, so that you understand the full price of everything before starting your trip.
Many of our customers decide to choose the Premium Cover option when renting a vehicle because it usually brings the excess down to zero meaning that the customer has no large security deposit or car hire insurance excess risk. Customers can also often pay with debit cards with Premium Cover if credit card is a problem.
We want you to be able to understand all of the options regarding which car rental insurance product is right for you, we work closely with our car rental partners to give you the option to purchase a Premium cover product.
