Many of our customers choose the Premium Cover option when they're are renting a vehicle because it usually reduces the excess to zero meaning that the customer has no large security deposit or car hire insurance excess risk. You can also often collect the car using debit cards with Premium Cover if credit card is a problem.
We appreciate how frightening choosing a hire car excess cover product can be. The fees that are included in the price of hiring a car are often very confusing, these include:
Many hire car websites hide the insurance excess and security deposit costs in the terms and conditions. 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 obstruct your plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.
On our website you'll find three options for car hire excess cover, premium, essential and basic and we help you find the hire car that suits you, your family and your trip. You're able to view the details of these on the extras page of our website when booking your rental.

It can be intimidating the first time you rent a car in a different country, just relax and you'll soon find yourself acclimatised to the differences. Have a great trip
