Paying for Vancouver Canada Car rental using a debit card and other ways to pay.

You can pay with Visa, American Express or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card issued by a bank or credit card company when renting a car on our website.

It's ridiculously easy on the website to view which car hire partners will accept debit card. Just use the filters on the second page to compare which car rental partners can accept your card type at the collection desk.

You can book using a number of different currencies including British Pounds (GBP),US Dollars (USD) and South African Rand (ZAR).

It is practical to understand the currency and payment options for your car rental in Vancouver Canada, as some payments for add ons (such as booster seats and Sat Nav) might have to be paid for in the local currency (by credit card) at the rental car collection desk.

If you've included Essential or Basic Cover for your car rental, it usually means that you'll have to have a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the car.

How to Hire a Car in Vancouver with zero Excess Held on Your Card

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

The car will be fully covered for accidents and theft included in the hire fee you'll see the website. This insurance is also known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

Although all of our rentals in Vancouver come with CDW in the price , there is often an insurance excess, which is held on your credit card when you pick up the car. The excess is the amount you'd be liable to pay if the car is stolen, written off or severely damaged. The the excess on rental cars can be expensive. It's often between £900 to £2,100, depending on the car, the country and the deal. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll have to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

When you pick up the vehicle, the insurance excess is held on your credit card as something called a 'pre-auth' transaction. Pre Auth means that the money isn't charged to your credit card as a normal payment, it's held as a pending payment until you drop off the vehicle. You won't usually have to pay currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions. As long as the car is dropped off in the same condition as when you collected it, the amount will be fully refunded to your credit card with nothing further to pay.

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

To view car hire options in Vancouver with a £0 or reduced insurance excess check out our Premium Cover options.
