Pay with American Express, Visa or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card issued by a bank or credit card company when renting a car on our website.
When you opt to include Essential or Basic Cover with your rental, it often means that you will need a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the car. You will more often than not be given the opportunity to pay for 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.
It's worth bearing in mind that often car rental brands that will allow debit card at the desk are not as cost effective as car hire companies that accept credit card only.
