Top tips when picking up your car hire

Remember to inspect the wheels and locks for damage as well. These are easy to miss when you are in a rush to start your journey

Whether you've bought Essential excess cover on the website or you have a different insurance policy, we recommend to take some time to check the car for pre existing damage. We advise taking photos on your phone of each part of the vehicle. If damage exists on the vehicle that is not highlighted in your hire contract you must inform the car hire provider

All of the vehicles listed on the website include a full to full fuel policy. Always check that the fuel tank is full prior to setting off. If it isn't you should report this to the rental company before driving away

Ensure you double check the fuel type for the vehicle and check which side of the vehicle the petrol cap is on

Beside the exterior, we also recommend documenting all damage to the inside of the car and informing the car rental company prior to starting your trip

Why we're different

There's a huge amount of reasons why we're different from our competitors but to start, it's important to understand that Stress Free Car Rental exists because of our frustration with the process of renting a car.

Our technology collects millions of car rental prices at 1000s of car rental locations to hunt down the best offers and ensure that booking them on the website as quick, easy and Stress Free as possible

So, the reason we do things a bit differently is because we got frustrated with seeing people having trips ruined by a bad car rental experience and knew we could do a better job.

We work hard to ensure that we provide customers with all of the best car hire deals in Nelson New Zealand with no unexpected fees.

Car rental companies we list on the website include big vehicle hire companies like Hertz and Enterprise there are some companies we know will not give you the price or experience that you deserve - so we don't include these on our website.

Pricing includes added fees that other car hire websites often don't include - this makes sure that our service is as transparent as possible.
