There are many factors which need to be taken into account when hiring a vehicle. With many rules and regulations to counteract and with many varying factors like excess amounts, excess reduction, vehicle choice, age limits and such, it can often pose the question of can i really hire a vehicle?

Indigo aims to be the most helpful car hire company there is and we always endeavour to answer any questions that you may have. So below are some of the main questions that we get asked.

How is payment made for the car hire? 

Payment for the actual car hire can be paid by either Credit or debit card, however when collecting the car the driver must have a credit card in their name to use for the deposit.
