Many of the Ayres Rock Australia car rental companies we compare prices for accept a debit card when you collect the rental; sometimes these do have different terms and conditions related to them. Always be sure to understand the terms if you want to pick up the car using a debit card.
One important thing to consider when deciding if you should use a debit card on collection, car hire companies often hold an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess can be a considerable amount of money , if you choose to pay with debit card this will be debited from your account and not refunded until weeks following you've returned the car.
If you choose Basic or Essential Cover with your car rental, it usually means that you’ll need a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the car. You will usually be given the opportunity to buy a top up policy by the rental company at the collection desk, which then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
Quite often, car rentals that include our Premium Cover option enable you to use a debit card when you pick up the car without any additional charges. You're able to view if a debit card is allowed, along with all of the car hire security deposit and insurance options on the extras page of the website booking process.
