Car Hire Without A Credit Card

Car Hire Without A Credit Card

Car Rental

Hiring a car is essential to people’s holiday, something as small as renting a car can make or break your holiday completely. There are restrictions when it comes to car hire however, some of these restrictions can rule you out of being able to hire a car completely. Perhaps the strictest of the restrictions is in regards to which payment type is accepted.

Rental companies are extremely strict in saying that only credit cards are accepted. You will be glad to know however that Indigo car hire have worked out a deal with a supplier that now allows us to be able to supply car hire without a credit card! This is a breakthrough as it will save a lot of distress for many people.

So what does car hire without a credit card mean?

Obviously we still can’t take every payment method as CASH IS NEVER ACCEPTED which we can unfortunately do nothing about it’s just a matter of security, this is the same for prepaid cards as we also never accept them. The payment methods we can take is through the use of Debit Cards, these do have to meet some of our restrictions that are in place however.


We have grouped the restrictions of debit card car hire into three basic points.

The card must have embossed numbers, this means that the numbers are raised from the surface of the card significantly, you will usually find that these are in a silver colour and not a black colour. If you flip the card round you can also tell if it’s embossed because on the other side the numbers will be indented.

The payment must be made in the same name as the card, this means that the name that is printed at the bottom of the card must match the name that is on the driving licence produced when you pick up the rental car.

The card must also be a Visa Debit card apart from in exceptional occasions then a MasterCard debit card can be used but I will stress that this is extremely exceptional.
