Pay with American Express, Visa or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card provided by your bank or credit card company when renting a car on our website.
It's important to consider when deciding if you want to use a debit card when collecting your car, car hire companies frequently hold an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess is often a large amount of money and if you decide to pay using a debit card this will be debited from your account and not refunded until a couple of weeks following you've returned the car.
It's worth remembering that often car hire companies that will allow debit card at the desk are not as cost effective as car hire companies that accept credit card only.
Lots of the Ethiopia car hire brands we work with accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the rental; some of these do have different terms and conditions related with them. Be careful to review the terms if you intend to pick up the car using a debit card.
Very often, car rentals that come with our Premium Cover option will allow you to use a debit card when you pick up the car without any extra charges. You're able to review if a debit card is allowed, along with all of the car hire excess and insurance alternatives on the extras page of our booking process.
Would you like us to take payment using something other than credit card or debit card? Please get in touch to let us know. We are open to ideas about how we can enhance the service we offer to make arranging your car hire a Stress Free experience.
When you opt to include Basic or Essential Cover for your rental, it often means that you will need a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You will more often than not be given the opportunity to pay for a top up policy by the hire company at the collection desk, this then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
