We understand how daunting picking a car excess cover product can be. The charges that make up the price of hiring a car are often very confusing, these can include:
You can pay with Visa, American Express or a Mastercard debit card or credit card issued by a bank or credit card company when hiring a car on our website.
Most of the Southern Cross Australia car hire partners we include will accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the rental; but some of these do have special terms and conditions associated with them. Be sure that you understand the contract terms if you intend to use a debit card when you collect the car.
Don't forget that frequently car rental brands that will accept debit card on collection are not as cost effective as car hire companies that accept credit card only.
It is practical to understand the alternative payment and currency options for your car rental in Southern Cross Australia, as often payments for extras (such as GPS and extra drivers) might have to be paid in the local currency (by credit card or debit card) at the rental car collection desk.
Frequently, rentals that include the Premium Cover option allow you to use a debit card on collection with no extra charges. You can review if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the car rental excess and insurance options on the extras page of our website booking process.
If you've opted for Essential or Basic Cover with your rental, this usually means that you will be required to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You'll more often than not be given the opportunity to purchase 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.
It's ridiculously simple 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 which car hire partners will accept your preferred card type at the collection desk.
You can book using a number of different currencies including Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Australian Dollars (AUD).
To collect your car the lead driver should present a Valid driver's license, Passport or National Identity Card, Credit or debit card in the lead driver's name, Home and local (hotel, villa etc) address and a Booking confirmation email. Any other requirements at collection will be clearly explained in your booking confirmation email.
