We get how daunting choosing a rental car excess cover product can be. The extra charges that are included in the price of hiring a vehicle can be very confusing, these can include:
Many car rental websites mask the insurance excess and security deposit costs in the terms and conditions. Customers are then surprised when the amount 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.
On our website you'll find three levels of 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're able to review the details of these on the extras page of our website when booking your rental.
