Picking up your Minibus rental in Cape Town with a debit card and other payment options.

Pay with American Express, Visa or a Mastercard debit card or credit card provided by your bank or credit card company when hiring a Minibus on our website.

We accept a large number of currencies including Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Australian Dollars (AUD).

It's worth bearing in mind that frequently Minibus hire partners that will accept debit card on collection are not as cost effective as Minibus hire companies that accept credit card only.

Many of the Minibus hire brands we include on the website will accept a debit card when you collect the rental; but often these do have special conditions related to them. Always be sure to review the T&Cs if you'd like to use a debit card when you collect the vehicle.

Would you like us to take payment with a method other than credit card or debit card? Feel free to get in touch and let us know. We're always open to ideas re how to improve the service we offer and make booking your vehicle rental a Stress Free experience.

Very often, Minibus rentals that come with the Premium Cover option will enable you to use a debit card on collection with no additional fees. You're able to review if a debit card is allowed, along with all of the different vehicle rental security deposit and insurance alternatives on the extras page of the booking process.

It's important to consider when deciding if you want to use a debit card at the collection desk, Minibus rental companies often hold an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, the credit card hold is often a large amount of money , if you choose to pay with a debit card this might be debited from your account and not returned until weeks following your rental has ended.

It's good to know the payment and currency options for your Minibus rental, as often payments for extras (such as GPS and extra drivers) might have to be paid for in local currency (either in cash or by credit card) when you pick up the Minibus.

We've made it incredibly simple on our website to view which X rental companies do accept a debit card. Just use the filters on the second page to compare which Minibus hire brands can accept your preferred card type when you pick up the vehicle.

If you've chosen Basic or Essential Cover with your rental, this usually means that you'll have to have a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the vehicle. You'll more often than not be given the option to buy a top up policy by the rental company when you collect the vehicle, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Our advice to find the best cheap Minibus rental

Factor in the time of year:

To find the best deals for your vehicle rental in Cape Town, it pays to book early, especially during peak times like Christmas and School holidays. Minibus rental can be in high demand in the summer months and the supply of large vehicles is more restricted than most other types of rental. If you change your mind after you've booked , we include free cancellation, this means you can cancel anytime until 48 hours before you collect the vehicle.

Mileage and fuel policy:

If you are comparing the options for your vehicle rental on other websites, be cautious to factor in the mileage allowance and fuel policy. Some other websites hide this away in the terms and conditions. If you use more than your mileage allowance or rent a Minibus with a full to empty fuel policy, you might be hit with some unexpected charges when you return the car. Our site only includes full to full rentals and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Security deposit and excess:

Always compare the amount you'll have to leave as a security deposit on your credit card. For cheaper Minibus rentals, you'll have to leave a higher security deposit, which is held on your credit card when you collect the car. You'll always see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.

Additional drivers and child seats:

You can see the cost of extras on the extras page. We often have special promotions, including extra drivers in the price. Where free extra drivers are available, you'll see them displayed on the search results page of website.

One-way fees and border crossing:

If you plan to drive your Minibus across a border into a different country from Cape Town extra fees are usually charged by the car hire company. Be sure to check the T&Cs for these fees before you book as they can be expensive. If you can't find them on the website, contact one of our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

Renting a Car in Cape Town with no Excess Held on Your Credit Card

The car will be covered for accidents and theft as part of the hire price you will see our website. This type of insurance is often referred to as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

The excess is the total amount you'd be liable to pay if the vehicle is written off, severely damaged or stolen. The the excess on hire cars can be very expensive. It's normally between £900 to £2,100, depending on the car, the country and the deal. If the car is returned damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll be required to pay some or all of the excess.

When you pick up the car, the insurance excess is held on your credit card as a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the money is not charged to your credit card as a normal transaction, it's held as a pending payment until you return the vehicle. You won't usually have to pay foreign currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised payments, so provided the car is dropped off in the same condition as when it was collected, this amount is fully refunded to your credit card with nothing further to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the excess will be taken from your bank account and fully refunded when the car is returned. If you plan to use a debit card on collection, as the excess can be very high, it's recommended to buy Premium Cover when you book or to pay for top up insurance at the rental desk.
