Why we're different

There's a wide variety of reasons why we're different from our rivals but to start, it's important to understand that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our personal frustration with the process of hiring a car.

We work hard to ensure that we provide you with all of the best car hire deals in Christchurch New Zealand with no unexpected charges.

We won't be beaten on price. Our car hire price match guarantee means that if you find the same hire vehicle at a lower cost, we'll match it.

So, the reason we do things a bit differently is because we got annoyed with seeing people being hit with unexpected charges and thought we could provide a more transparent service.

All our pricing includes extra fees that other car hire websites often don't display - this ensures that your experience is as clear-cut as it can be.
