A lot of car rental websites mask the price of insurance excess and security deposit costs in the fine print.

Be sure that you review the contract terms if you'd like to use a debit card at the desk when collecting the car.
When you include Essential or Basic Cover for your car rental, this usually means that you'll need to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car.
