Debit card Tel Aviv

Postby Matt Carter » 03 Jun 2014, 13:53

Not many options at this location by way of hiring with a debit card, see some exchange of information below, the suppliers seems to operate in a strange way over there, as many of them whether you are paying with a credit or debit card tend to physically deduct the deposit and then refund at the end of the rental and a couple of people have told us they hang onto it for up to 30 days - sounds strange but can only assume that there is a reason for this, we just don't know what that is!

It is worth noting from the below that from some European countries can issue non embossed cards with black numbers whilst debit cards not the type of debit card that work for car rental in the majority of locations.

(08:48:29) Visitor 82036969: Hello. We're going to Israel and we do not have credit card, only debit.
(08:48:44) Cherie: Okay no worries and which location please?>

(08:49:06) Visitor 82036969: Tel aviv ben gurion
(08:49:13) Cherie: Israel can be a little bit tricky in terms of collecting without a credit card, much tricky that Spain put it that way!
