We accept Visa, American Express or a Mastercard debit card or credit card issued by your bank or credit card company when booking your rental on our website.

One thing to think about when deciding if you should use a debit card at the collection desk, car rental companies frequently hold an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the hold is often a large amount of money and if you choose to pay with a debit card this might be debited from your account and not refunded until a couple of weeks after your rental has ended.

You will more often than not be given the opportunity to pay for a top up policy by the rental company when you collect the car, which then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Frequently, rentals that include our Premium Cover option allow you to use a debit card on collection with no extra charges. You're able to view if a debit card is allowed, along with all of the car hire excess and insurance options on the extras page of the booking process.

How to Hire a Car in El Calafate with no Excess Held on Your Credit Card

Your rental car will already be fully insured for theft and accidents as part of the rental price you'll see displayed on the website. This type of cover is known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

Although all of our hire cars in El Calafate include CDW in the price displayed, there is usually an insurance excess, which is held on your credit card when you pick up the car. The excess is the amount you would be required to pay if the car is written off, severely damaged or stolen. The the excess on rental cars can be high. It's often between £950 to £2,200, depending on the car, the country and the deal. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll have to pay some or all of the excess.

When you arrive to collect the rental car, the insurance excess is held on your card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. Pre Auth means that the amount isn't charged to your card as a normal transaction, it's held as a pending transaction until you return the vehicle. You won't usually have to pay foreign currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised payments, so provided the car is returned in the same condition as when you collected it, the amount will be fully refunded to your credit card with nothing additional to pay.

If you intend to pay for your rental by debit card, the insurance excess amount is taken from your bank account and refunded when the vehicle is dropped off. If you intend to use a debit card on collection, as the excess can be very high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover when you book or to pay for top up cover at the rental desk.
