Picking up your Nicaragua Car hire using a debit card and other payment options.

We accept Visa, Mastercard or an American Express debit card or credit card provided by a bank or credit card company when renting a car on our website.

It can be practical to know the different currency and payment options for your car hire in Nicaragua, as often payments for add ons (such as Sat Nav and child seats) might have to be paid in local currency (by credit card) on collection.

One important thing to consider when deciding if you want to use a debit card on collection, car hire companies frequently hold an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the excess can be a large amount of money and if you decide to pay using a debit card this will be debited from your account and not returned until weeks after completion of your rental contract.

Would you prefer us to accept payments with a method other than credit card or debit card? Please contact us to let us know. We are always open to ideas about how we can enhance our service to make paying for your car hire as Stress Free as it can be.

If you've included Essential or Basic Cover for your car rental, it often means that you'll need a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You will usually be given the opportunity to purchase a top up policy by the hire partner at the collection desk, which then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Lots of the Nicaragua car rental partners we include on the website 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 check the T&Cs if you intend to use a debit card at the desk when collecting the car.

It's really simple on our website to identify which car hire brands do accept debit card. Just use the filters on the search results page to compare the car rental brands do accept your card type on collection.

It's worth remembering that quite frequently car hire companies that do allow debit card at the desk are not as cheap as car hire companies that accept credit card only.

Car rental insurance, excess and security deposits

We get how daunting and frightening picking a rental car excess cover product can be. The extra charges that are included in the price of hiring a car can be very confusing, these include:

  • The cost of hiring the vehicle
  • Any extras (e.g. child car seats & sat nav)
  • Insurance costs

Stress Free Car Rental offers three levels of car hire excess cover, basic, essential and premium and we help you find the hire car that suits you and your trip. You can view the details of these on the extras page of our website when making a booking.

Many car hire 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 plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.
