You can use a American Express, Visa or a Mastercard debit card or credit card provided by your bank or credit card company when hiring through us.
Very often, rentals that come with our Premium Cover option allow you to use a debit card when you pick up the car without any extra charges. You can review if a debit card is allowed, along with all of the different car hire excess and insurance options on the second step of the booking process.
If you've chosen Basic or Essential Cover with your rental, it usually means that you will have to have a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You will more often than not be given the option to pay for a top up policy by the rental partner when you collect the car, which then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
Don't forget that frequently car hire partners that will allow debit card at the desk are not as cost effective as car hire companies that accept credit card only.
It's important to consider when deciding if you want to use a debit card when collecting your car, car hire companies sometimes hold an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess is often a large amount of money and if you decide to pay with a debit card this might be debited from your bank account and not refunded until weeks following your rental has ended.
It is good to know the payment options for your car hire in Aramac Australia, as often payments for extras (such as extra drivers and child seats) might need to be settled in the local currency (by credit card) at the rental car collection desk.
