You can use a Visa, Mastercard or an American Express debit card or credit card provided by a bank or credit card company when booking your 9 seater on our website.
If you've opted for Essential or Basic Cover for your rental, it usually means that you will be required to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the vehicle. You'll usually be given the option to pay for a top up policy by the hire company when you collect the vehicle, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
It's worth bearing in mind that quite frequently 9 seater hire partners that will accept debit card at the desk are not as cost effective as 9 seater hire companies that accept credit card only.
Many of the 9 seater rental partners we include on the website in Faro will accept a debit card when you pick up the rental; but often these do have special conditions associated to them. Ensure that you review the T&Cs if you intend to pick up the 9 seater using a debit card.

Essential Cover comes with key cover, flushing the engine after misfuelling, damage caused to the vehicle, theft, weather and fire and much more.
Essential cover appears as a choice in the vehicle hire insurance options. For some geographical/partner 9 seater rental combinations the cover isn't always available.
Premium insurance is the highest level of 9 seater hire insurance we provide.
Lots of our clients decide to choose the Premium Cover option when renting a vehicle because it usually lowers the security deposit for the excess to zero meaning that the customer has no large security deposit or vehicle rental insurance excess risk.

Choosing Premium Cover is completely optional, you can also decide to purchase Premium Cover at the vehicle hire counter, It is usually less expensive to book this in advance on our website at the same time as you make your 9 seater rental booking.
