Comparison of Car Hire Offers in New Zealand

Collecting your New Zealand Car rental with no credit card and other payment card options.

Pay with Visa, American Express or a Mastercard debit card or credit card issued by your bank or credit card company when renting a car on our website.

Don't forget that quite frequently car rental companies that will allow debit card at the desk are more costly than those that accept credit card only.

Most of the New Zealand car rental partners we work with accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the car; often these do have special terms and conditions associated with them. Always be sure to review the T&Cs if you plan to pick up the car using a debit card.

If you've included Basic or Essential Cover for your rental, it usually means that you’ll have to have a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You’ll usually be given the opportunity to purchase a top up policy by the rental partner when you collect the car, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

You can book using a large range of currencies including US Dollars (USD), British Pounds (GBP), Euros (EUR), South African Rand (ZAR) and Canadian Dollars (CAD).

One thing to think about when deciding if you should use a debit card when collecting your car, car hire companies frequently block an excess on the lead drivers credit card, this can be a considerable amount of money and if you opt to pay with a debit card this will be debited from your account and not returned until a couple of weeks after you've returned the car.

Would you like us to allow you to pay with a method other than debit card and credit card? Please get in touch to let us know. We are always open to new ideas about how we can improve our service to make paying for your car rental as Stress Free as it can be.

It is good to understand the different currency and payment options for your car hire in New Zealand, as some payments for add ons (like Sat Nav and child seats) might have to be paid in the local currency (either in cash or by credit card) on collection.

We’ve made it ridiculously simple on the website to identify which car rental partners will accept debit card. Simply use the filters on the search results page to compare which car rental partners will accept your card type when you pick up the car.

Frequently, rentals that include our Premium Cover option will allow you to use a debit card when you pick up the car without any additional fees. You're able to compare if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the car rental excess and insurance options on the second step of the booking process.

Car hire excess, security deposits and insurance

We appreciate how intimidating choosing a rental car insurance product can be. The charges that make up the price of hiring a vehicle can be very confusing, these can include:

  • The cost of hiring the vehicle
  • Any extras (e.g. child car seats & sat nav)
  • Insurance costs

A lot of car rental websites hide the insurance excess and security deposit prices in the fine print. 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 wrong and can really hinder your holiday plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.

Car hire in New Zealand made simple

Stressfreecarrental.com are based in Manchester UK and we're on a mission to make renting a car Stress Free for our customers

Vehicle Models at each car rental location are variable. You will always be provided with a car that’s the same size in terms of body style, passengers and luggage capacity but the exact make may vary from the one displayed. If you require a particular model, at most car rental locations we provide options to book guaranteed models . You can use the filters on the website to find guaranteed model deals.

Car hire availability can vary greatly at different times of the year. peak holiday times are an important thing to recognise that influences car rental prices. Factor this in when planning your rental in advance.

You can use the filters on the search results to find your ideal rental, including options with an automatic gearbox, diesel engine and reduced security deposit options.

Stressfreecarrental.com only offer car hire that includes a full to full fuel policy. Full to full is always cheaper compared with the alternatives.

Why should you book with us?

We're not called Stress Free Car Rental for nothing! Our mission is to make the vehicle rental process as easy as we can.

Save money on your car rental in New Zealand by booking your car in advance. Take time to shop around the various different deals.

Collecting at an airport but not sure what your flight number is? No Problem - you can book your rental now and add the flight number to your rental later on. Including your flight number will help the car hire provider to wait for you if the flight is late. You should check the T&Cs to understand what you need to do if your flight is delayed or cancelled.

As soon as you complete your booking on the website you will receive a rental confirmation email with all of your rental information included. This email includes directions to the car hire pick up location and opening hours. If the rental includes car hire insurance, all of the documentation will be attached to the email

When you book a hire vehicle with Stress Free Car Rental you'll always know how much you are spending in advance - no hidden costs, no scary fees.

Just get in touch and we'll do the rest - it really is that, well, stress free!
