You can use a Visa, Mastercard or an American Express credit card or a debit card provided by a bank or credit card company when renting a car on our website.
One important thing to consider when deciding if you'd like to use a debit card at the collection desk, car hire companies frequently block an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the credit card hold is often a large amount of money and if you decide to pay using a debit card this might be debited from your account and not refunded until a couple of weeks after you've returned the car.
It's worth bearing in mind that quite often car hire brands that will allow debit card at the desk are not as cheap as car hire companies that accept credit card only.
We accept a huge number of different currencies including Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Australian Dollars (AUD).
Quite often, car rentals that come with the Premium Cover option allow you to use a debit card when you pick up the car without any additional fees. You're able to view if a debit card is accepted, along with all of the car hire excess and insurance alternatives on the second step of our booking process.
If you've chosen Essential or Basic Cover with your 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'll more often than not be given the opportunity to purchase a top up policy by the hire partner at the collection desk, which then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
Many of the Cape Verde car rental brands we include accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the car; sometimes these do have special terms and conditions related with them. Ensure that you check the T&Cs if you intend to pick up the car using a debit card.
We've made it really easy on our website to filter which car rental brands will accept debit card. Just use the filters on the second page to compare which car hire brands do accept your card type at the counter.

A lot of car rental websites hide the insurance excess and security deposit costs in the small print.

We think this is wrong and can really obstruct your plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.
