Pay with Visa, Mastercard or an American Express debit card or credit card issued by a bank or credit card company when hiring through us.
It's good to understand the payment options for your car rental in Barbados, as payments for add ons (like booster seats and Sat Nav) might need to be paid for in local currency (by credit card) on vehicle collection.
Many of the Barbados car rental partners we include on the website accept a debit card when you pick up the car; often these do have different conditions related to them. Be careful to review the terms and conditions if you intend to use a debit card when you collect the car.
It's worth bearing in mind that quite frequently car rental partners that will allow debit card on collection are more costly than those that accept credit card only.
Would you like us to accept payments with a method other than debit card and credit card? Feel free to get in touch to let us know. We're open to new ideas regarding how to enhance the service we offer and make booking your car hire a Stress Free experience.
One important thing to consider when deciding if you want to use a debit card when collecting your car, car hire companies sometimes block an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the hold is often a large amount of money , if you decide to pay using a debit card this will be debited from your bank and not returned until a couple of weeks following your rental has ended.
If you've opted for Essential or Basic Cover for your rental, this usually means that you will need to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the car. You will more often than not be given the option to buy a top up policy by the hire company when you collect the car, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
Quite often, rentals that include the Premium Cover option will allow you to use a debit card when you pick up the car with no extra fees. You're able to compare if a debit card is allowed, along with the different car hire security deposit and insurance alternatives on the extras page of our booking process.
