One important thing to consider when deciding if you want to use a debit card at the collection desk, car rental companies sometimes hold an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess is often a considerable amount of money and if you opt to pay using a debit card this will be debited from your account and not refunded until weeks following your rental has ended.

It's good to know the alternative payment and currency options for your car rental in Albania, as often payments for extras (like extra drivers and child seats) might have to be paid in the local currency (by credit card or debit card) at the collection counter.
It's worth bearing in mind that quite frequently car hire brands that will accept debit card on collection are not as cost effective as those that accept credit card only.
When you opt to include Essential or Basic Cover with your rental, this usually means that you will need to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You will more often than not 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.

We appreciate how frightening picking a car excess cover product can be. The extra charges that are included in the price of hiring a car are often very confusing, these can include:
Many car rental websites hide 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 work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.
