No name displayed on payment card

Postby Matt Carter » 28 May 2014, 10:07

We have talked about this previously in another post - although I cant actually locate it :(

Please see below another example of someone who holds a debit card but that debit card does not display their own name, seems to be pretty much the norm in Malaysia

The below covers a couple of locations that will accept these types of payment cards, Germany and the Netherlands, as always any questions please let us know.

(12:22:40) Cherie: Ah okay - see usually you have silver or black numbers - black number are not embossed and they are a no in terms of been accepted by the rental companies.
(12:23:12) Cherie: You can always scan the card if you would like deleting the sensitive information of course.

(12:30:01) Visitor 87004446: are u sure its embossed? because its not that raised up
(12:30:19) Visitor 87004446: i do feel it..its just its slightly embossed
(12:31:04) Cherie: Not that this makes too much of a difference as of course you want a car, but the rental is all paid upon collection... and it is worth noting that the deposit is 100 euro at Amsterdam.
(12:31:43) Visitor 87004446: ok..just 100 euro? how many days?
(12:31:54) Visitor 87004446: i mean for the deposits

(12:32:56) Visitor 87004446: so whats the process?
(12:33:07) Visitor 87004446: i mean if i book now then how do i do it?
(12:35:40) Cherie: Just need your name / contact number and the long number across the centre of the card we then email all the details through to you and you collect the car, really is as easy as that :-)
(12:36:41) Visitor 87004446: ok..ill need to do some research first..ill get back to you as soon as i can

Re: No name displayed on payment card

Hi Matt,

Had a Canadian guy a couple of weeks back who had a similar problem, looking to hire in Liverpool.

We managed to get him sorted out, as all he needed to present was some documentation from his bank to show that it was his card, even though his name wasn't on it.

Certainly is a rare occurrence, but we can help!

Hi Guys

Funnily enough I have had another Canadian client looking to get a car over in Paris with no payment card on his name. I have managed to secure a supplier which can offer this service over at CDG Airport and they also take the debit card as well. :)

It seems that the main countries which seem to offer these types of payment cards with no name on there seem to be issued from Malaysia or Canada. I am sure there will be other ones out there as well but the large proportion of inquiries seem to be coming in from these two aforementioned countries.

So one to watch out for as we can certainly assist you with this request.
