One thing to think about when deciding if you want to use a debit card on collection, car rental companies frequently block an insurance excess on the lead drivers credit card, this can be a significant amount of money , if you decide to pay with a debit card this might be debited from your bank account and not returned until weeks after completion of your rental contract.

If you choose Essential or Basic Cover with your car rental, it often means that you will be required to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You’ll usually be given the option to buy a top up policy by the hire company when you collect the car, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

Don't forget that often car rental partners that do accept debit card at the desk are more costly than car hire companies that accept credit card only.

Most of the Mount Cook Airport New Zealand car hire companies we include on the website will accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the car; but some of these do have special conditions associated to them. Always be sure to review the contract terms if you want to use a debit card at the desk when collecting the car.
