Cheap Car Rental in Newcastle with a Fair Fuel Policy

Picking up your Newcastle Australia Car rental without a credit card and other payment card options.

You can pay with Visa, Mastercard or an American Express credit card or a debit card issued by a bank or credit card company when booking your rental on our website.

We accept a huge number of different currencies including Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Australian Dollars (AUD).

It's worth bearing in mind that quite often car rental brands that will accept debit card on collection are more expensive than car hire companies that accept credit card only.

One important thing to consider when deciding if you'd like to use a debit card at the collection desk, car rental companies often hold an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, the credit card hold is often a considerable amount of money , if you choose to pay with debit card this might be debited from your bank and not returned until weeks after your rental has ended.

If you choose Essential or Basic Cover with your rental, this usually means that you'll be required 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 option to buy a top up policy by the rental company on collection, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Would you prefer us to accept payments using something other than debit card and credit card? Do get in touch and let us know. We're always open to ideas re how we can enhance the service we offer and make booking your car rental a Stress Free experience.

Quite often, car rentals that include the Premium Cover option allow you to use a debit card on collection with no additional charges. You can review if a debit card is allowed, along with all of the different car hire security deposit and insurance options on the extras page of the website booking process.

It's useful to understand the alternative payment and currency options for your car rental in Newcastle Australia, as often payments for extras (such as extra drivers and child seats) might need to be paid for in the local currency (either in cash or by credit card) at the rental car collection desk.

Many of the Newcastle Australia car rental companies we include will accept a debit card when you collect the rental; but some of these do have different T&Cs related to them. Always be sure to understand the terms and conditions if you plan to use a debit card when you collect the car.

It's really easy on the website to filter which car rental companies do accept a debit card. Just use the filters on the search results page to compare the car hire partners will accept your preferred card type at the collection desk.

How to Hire a Car in Newcastle with a Low Deposit

When you collect the car, you'll often be required to leave a security deposit on a credit card or debit card. Security deposits can vary significantly dependent on the make and model of the car and the excess . Car hire Security deposits in Newcastle can be anywhere between £0 and £2,300.

We compare all of the car hire options with a low security deposit and in some instances no deposit at all except for fuel. If you reserve a rental in Newcastle with Premium Cover included, you're often able to reduce your deposit to cover only the cost of a full tank of fuel (usually less than £100), which is refunded to your card when the rental is dropped off with a full tank.

Car Hire in Newcastle with One Way Fees included

Many of the car rental brands we include in Newcastle allow you to pick up the vehicle in Newcastle and return the vehicle at a different location.

You can also find a full breakdown of all additional fees on the payment page.

How to Rent a Car in Newcastle with zero Insurance Excess Held on Your Credit Card

The rental car will already be fully insured for theft and accidents included in the hire price you'll see our website. This insurance is often referred to as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

All of our hire cars in Newcastle come with CDW in the price displayed, there's usually an insurance excess, this excess is held on your credit card when you collect the car. The excess is the amount you would be required to pay if the vehicle is severely damaged, written off or stolen. The the excess on rental cars can be high. It's normally between £900 to £3,000. If the car is returned damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll be required to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

When you arrive to collect the car, the excess is held on your card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the amount is not taken from your credit card as a regular payment, it's held as a pending transaction until you return the car. You won't normally 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, this amount will be fully refunded to your credit card with nothing additional to pay.

If you plan to pay by debit card, the insurance excess amount is taken from your bank account and refunded when the vehicle is dropped off. If you plan to use a debit card on collection, as the excess is often high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover on our website or to pay for top up insurance at the collection desk.

Our advice of things to check before driving away your car rental

Car rental excess, security deposits and insurance

We appreciate how frightening and daunting choosing a hire car excess cover product can be. The extra fees that make up the price of hiring a car are often very confusing, these can include:

  • The cost of hiring the vehicle
  • Any extras (e.g. child car seats & sat nav)
  • Insurance costs

Stress Free Car Rental offers three options for car hire excess cover, premium, essential and basic and we help you find the hire car that suits you, your family and your trip. You're able to view the details of these on the extras page of the site when booking your rental.

Many hire car websites hide the insurance excess and security deposit prices in the terms and conditions. Customers are then shocked 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 obstruct your holiday plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.

If you don't there's the possibility that your insurance will be invalidated if you're involved in an accident or the car is stolen

When driving in a different country lots of countries have extremely stringent laws concerning drinking alcohol when driving. To avoid any issues, we advise you not to consume any alcoholic drinks at all when driving your vehicle
