A lot of car rental websites mask the expensive insurance excess and security deposit prices in the terms and conditions.

One thing to think about when deciding if you'd prefer to use a debit card on collection, car rental companies often hold an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, the hold is often a considerable amount of money and if you choose to pay with a debit card this might be debited from your account and not returned until weeks following you've returned the car.
