Pay with Visa, American Express or a Mastercard debit card or credit card issued by your bank or credit card company when renting a car on our website.
Don't forget that quite frequently car rental companies that will allow debit card at the desk are more costly than those that accept credit card only.
Most of the New Zealand car rental partners we work with accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the car; often these do have special terms and conditions associated with them. Always be sure to review the T&Cs if you plan to pick up the car using a debit card.
If you've included Basic or Essential Cover for your rental, it usually means that you'll have to have a credit card in the name of the lead driver on collection of the car. You'll usually be given the opportunity to purchase a top up policy by the rental partner when you collect the car, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
You can book using a large range of 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 should use a debit card when collecting your car, car hire companies frequently block an excess on the lead drivers credit card, this can be a considerable amount of money and if you opt to pay with a debit card this will be debited from your account and not returned until a couple of weeks after you've returned the car.
Would you like us to allow you to pay with a method other than debit card and credit card? Please get in touch to let us know. We are always open to new ideas about how we can improve our service to make paying for your car rental as Stress Free as it can be.

We appreciate how intimidating choosing a rental car insurance product can be. The charges that make up the price of hiring a vehicle can be very confusing, these can include:
A lot of car rental websites hide the insurance excess and security deposit prices in the fine print. Customers are then surprised when the cash is taken from their debit card account or the amount is held on their credit card. We think this is wrong and can really hinder your holiday plans which is why we won't do that at Stress Free Car Rental.
