Car hire excess, security deposits and insurance

We get how frightening picking a rental car insurance product can be. The extra charges that are included in the price of hiring a vehicle are often very confusing, these include:

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

A lot of car rental websites mask the expensive insurance excess and security deposit prices in the small print. Customers are then surprised when the cash is taken from the debit card account or the amount is held on their credit card. We think this is wrong and can really hinder your plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.

Collecting your Rotorua New Zealand Car hire with a debit card .

You can use a Visa, Mastercard or an American Express debit card or credit card provided by your bank or credit card company when renting a car on our website.

If you've chosen Basic or Essential Cover with your car rental, it often means that you will be required to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You’ll usually be given the option to purchase a top up policy by the hire partner when you collect the car, this then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

It’s good to know the currency and payment options for your car hire in Rotorua New Zealand, as payments for add ons (such as Sat Nav and child seats) might need to be paid in local currency (either in cash or by credit card) at the collection counter.

Quite often, rentals that come with our Premium Cover option enable you to use a debit card when you pick up the car without any extra fees. You're able to review if a debit card is accepted, along with the different car rental excess and insurance alternatives on the second step of the booking process.

Would you like us to accept payments with a method other than credit card or debit card? Feel free to contact us to let us know. We are open to new ideas re how we can improve our service and make paying for your car hire as Stress Free as it can be.

We accept a large number of currencies including British Pounds (GBP),US Dollars (USD) and South African Rand (ZAR).

We’ve made it really simple on our website to view which car hire brands can accept debit card. Just use the filters on the search results page to compare which car rental companies can accept your card type at the counter.

It’s worth bearing in mind that quite frequently car hire partners that do allow debit card at the desk are not as cost effective as car hire companies that accept credit card only.
