You can use a Visa, American Express or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card provided by your bank or credit card company when hiring a car on our website.
We've made it ridiculously easy on our website to identify which car hire brands will accept a debit card. Just use the filters on the second page to compare the car hire companies can accept your card type at the collection desk.
Most of the Base Aerea De Santa Maria Airport Brazil car rental partners we include on the website will accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the car; but sometimes these do have different conditions associated to them. Be sure that you understand the terms and conditions if you intend to use a debit card when you collect the car.
Be careful when deciding if you should use a debit card at the collection desk, car rental companies frequently block an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess is often a significant amount of money , if you opt to pay using a debit card this might be debited from your bank and not refunded until weeks after your rental has ended.
If you've included Basic or Essential Cover for your car rental, it often means that you'll be required 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 pay for a top up policy by the rental partner when you collect the car, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
Don't forget that quite often car hire companies that do accept debit card at the desk are more expensive than car hire companies that accept credit card only.
