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