Hassle free Essential insurance options

Along with being friendly, easy to use and of course, stress free, we also offer two different levels of insurance when you hire a vehicle with us.

Essential Cover includes fire, weather, theft, damage caused to the vehicle, flushing the engine after misfuelling, key cover and more.

Our essential cover doesn't cover things like cleaning fees, mechanical repairs, third party injury, loss of theft/damage to content in the car and other things. For more details see the terms and conditions on the extras page of the website

Our essential cover, offered when you make your car hire booking, is a car hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a wide-range of extra costs that standard insurance does not.

Essential cover appears as a choice in the car hire insurance section. For some partner/geographical car rental combinations the cover isn't always available.

Picking up your Mt Maunganui Tauranga New Zealand Car rental using a debit card and other payment options.

We accept Visa, American Express or a Mastercard debit card or credit card issued by a bank or credit card company when hiring through us.

Be careful when deciding if you'd like to use a debit card at the collection desk, car hire companies often hold an excess on the lead drivers credit card, this is often a significant amount of money , if you decide to pay with debit card this can be debited from your account and not returned until a couple of weeks after your rental has ended.

Stress Free Car Rental accepts a number of different currencies including Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Australian Dollars (AUD).

Usually, rentals that include the Premium Cover option enable you to use a debit card when you pick up the car without any additional charges. You're able to review if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the different car rental security deposit and insurance options on the second step of the website booking process.

When you opt to include Essential or Basic Cover with your car rental, it usually means that you’ll need a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You’ll more often than not be given the option to buy a top up policy by the rental partner on collection, which then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

We’ve made it ridiculously simple on the website to view which car hire partners do accept debit card. Just use the filters on the search results page to compare which car hire companies will accept your card type at the collection desk.

Would you like us to allow you to pay with a method other than debit card and credit card? Feel free to contact us to let us know. We are always open to ideas about how we can improve the service we offer and make booking your car rental as Stress Free as it can be.

Lots of the Mt Maunganui Tauranga New Zealand car rental partners we include accept a debit card when you collect the rental; some of these do have special T&Cs associated to them. Ensure that you understand the T&Cs if you plan to use a debit card when you collect the car.

It can be practical to understand the payment options for your car hire in Mt Maunganui Tauranga New Zealand, as often payments for add ons (such as extra drivers and child seats) might need to be paid for in the local currency (by credit card) on collection.

Car hire excess, security deposits and insurance

We get how daunting and frightening picking a car insurance product can be. The charges that make up the price of hiring a car are often 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 view the details of these on the extras page of our website when making a booking.

A lot of hire car websites mask the expensive insurance excess and security deposit costs in the fine print. Customers are then shocked when the cash is taken from their 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.
