We appreciate how daunting and frightening choosing a car excess cover product can be. The charges that make up the price of hiring a car are often very confusing, these include:
Many hire car websites hide the expensive insurance excess and security deposit costs in the fine print. Customers are then shocked when the amount is taken from their debit card account or the amount is held on their credit card. We think this is unfair and can really hinder your holiday plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.
