As well as being easy to use, friendly and of course, stress free, we offer two different levels of insurance when you book a car with us.
Essential cover will appear as an option in the car hire insurance options. For some partner/geographical car rental combinations the cover might not be available.
Essential Cover includes fire, weather, theft, damage caused to the vehicle, flushing the engine after misfuelling, key cover and much more.
Our essential cover, offered when you make your vehicle booking, is a car hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a range of extra charges that standard insurance doesn't.
You can use a Visa, American Express or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card provided by a bank or credit card company when renting a car on our website.
We've made it ridiculously easy on our website to view which car rental partners do accept debit card. Simply use the filters on the search results page to compare the car rental partners can accept your preferred card type when you pick up the car.
It's worth bearing in mind that often car hire partners that will allow debit card on collection are more costly than those that accept credit card only.
We accept a number of different currencies including US Dollars (USD), British Pounds (GBP), Euros (EUR), South African Rand (ZAR) and Canadian Dollars (CAD).
One thing to think about when deciding if you'd like to use a debit card when collecting your car, car hire companies often hold an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the credit card hold can be a considerable amount of money , if you decide to pay with debit card this will be debited from your bank and not refunded until a couple of weeks following completion of your rental contract.
If you've chosen Essential or Basic Cover for your rental, it usually 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 buy a top up policy by the hire company on collection, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
It's practical to know the currency and payment options for your car rental in New Zealand, as often payments for add ons (like Sat Nav and child seats) might have to be paid for in local currency (either in cash or by credit card) on vehicle collection.
Frequently, car rentals that come with the Premium Cover option will allow you to use a debit card when you pick up the car with no additional charges. You're able to compare if a debit card is allowed, along with all of the car rental security deposit and insurance alternatives on the extras page of the website booking process.
Many of the New Zealand car hire brands we include on the website accept a debit card when you collect the rental; often these do have different terms and conditions associated to them. Ensure that you review the terms and conditions if you intend to use a debit card at the desk when collecting the car.
