It's important to consider when deciding if you want to use a debit card at the collection desk, car hire companies frequently hold an excess on the lead drivers credit card, this is often a large amount of money and if you choose to pay with a debit card this will be debited from your bank and not returned until a couple of weeks following your rental has ended.
If you've opted for Essential or Basic Cover for your car rental, it usually means that you will need a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You'll more often than not be given the option to pay for a top up policy by the rental company when you collect the car, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
Many of the Ardmore New Zealand car hire partners we include accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the rental; some of these do have special T&Cs related with them. Always be sure to understand the terms and conditions if you'd like to use a debit card when you collect the car.
It's worth bearing in mind that frequently car rental companies that do allow debit card on collection are more costly than car hire companies that accept credit card only.
