We get how daunting and frightening choosing a rental car excess cover product can be. The extra charges that make up the price of hiring a vehicle can be very confusing, these can include:
Many car rental websites mask the expensive insurance excess and security deposit costs in the small print. Customers are then surprised 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 hinder your holiday plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.
On our website you'll find three levels of car hire excess cover, basic, essential and premium 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 our website when booking your rental.
You can pay with Visa, Mastercard or an American Express debit card or credit card issued by your bank or credit card company when renting a car on our website.
It can be good to understand the different currency and payment options for your car rental in Bonnyville Airport Canada, as some payments for add ons (such as booster seats and Sat Nav) might have to be settled in the local currency (either in cash or by credit card) on vehicle collection.
It's really simple on the website to identify which car rental companies will accept debit card. Just use the filters on the second page to compare the car rental brands will accept your preferred card type at the counter.
If you choose Basic or Essential Cover for your rental, this usually means that you'll have to have a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the car. You will usually be given the opportunity to pay for 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.
One important thing to consider when deciding if you should use a debit card when collecting your car, car hire companies often block an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess can be a large amount of money , if you choose to pay with debit card this can be debited from your bank and not refunded until weeks after your rental has ended.
Lots of the Bonnyville Airport Canada car rental companies we work with accept a debit card when you collect the car; sometimes these do have different terms and conditions related to them. Always be sure to understand the terms and conditions if you want to use a debit card when you collect the car.
It's worth remembering that quite frequently car rental companies that will allow debit card on collection are more costly than car hire companies that accept credit card only.
Quite often, rentals that include our Premium Cover option will allow you to use a debit card when you pick up the car with no additional fees. 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.
