Hire Car deals at Waitangi Airport with No Hidden Fees

Car rental excess, security deposits and insurance

We appreciate how daunting choosing a car insurance product can be. The extra charges that make up 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

Stress Free Car Rental offers three levels of car hire excess cover, premium, essential and basic and we help you find the hire car that suits you and your trip. You can review the details of these on the extras page of our website when booking your rental.

Many car rental websites hide the 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 wrong and can really hinder your holiday plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.

Tips for Driving your car rental at New Zealand Waitangi Airport

Before commencing your trip spend some time to get used to the vehicle and its controls. This is especially important if you're used to driving a manual transmission on the other side of the road.

If you'd like to take the car across a border into another country, be careful to check the conditions of rental for any cross border fees and to let the car rental company know. If you don't there is the possibility that your insurance will be invalidated if you're involved in an accident or the car is stolen
