Car rental excess, security deposits and insurance

We understand how daunting and frightening choosing a car insurance product can be. The additional 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, your family and your trip. You can review the details of these on the extras page of our website when booking your rental.

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