Collecting your 8 Seater rental in Cardiff with a debit card .

You can pay with Visa, American Express or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card issued by your bank or credit card company when booking your 8 seater on our website.

When you opt to include Basic or Essential Cover for your rental, it usually means that you will need to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the vehicle. You will more often than not be given the option to pay for a top up policy by the rental company on collection, this then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Frequently, 8 seater rentals that include our Premium Cover option will allow you to use a debit card on collection without any extra fees. You can compare if a debit card is allowed, along with the different vehicle hire security deposit and insurance options on the extras page of our website booking process.

Our advice to find the best deal on your 8 Seater rental

Fuel and mileage policies:

If you are looking around for your rental on different websites, be sure to check the fuel policy and mileage allowance. Some other websites hide this away in the terms and conditions. If you go over the mileage allowance or rent a 8 seater with a full to empty fuel policy, you could be hit with some unexpected charges when you return the car. We only compare full to full rentals in Cardiff and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Excess and Security Deposit:

Be sure to check the amount you'll have to leave as a security deposit on your card. Often, for cheaper 8 seater rentals, you'll have to leave a much more expensive security deposit, this is held on your card when you pick up. You'll see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.

How to Hire a Car in Cardiff without an Insurance Excess Held on Your Card

Your rental car will be fully covered for accidents and theft as part of the hire price you'll see the website. This insurance is known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

Although all of our rentals in Cardiff come with CDW in the price , there's usually an insurance excess, which is held on your credit card when yoyu pick up the car. The excess is the total amount you'd be liable to pay if the vehicle is severely damaged, written off or stolen. However, the excess on rental cars can be very high. It's often between £950 to £2,200, depending on the car, the country and the deal. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you will be required to pay some or all of the excess.

When you arrive to collect the car, the insurance excess is held on your credit card as a 'pre authorised' transaction. Pre Auth means that the amount isn't taken from your card as a regular payment, it's held as a pending transaction until you drop off the car. You don't normally pay currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions. As long as the car is dropped off in the same condition as when you collected it, this excess amount will be fully refunded to your card with nothing additional to pay.

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