Do I Have To Pay A Deposit?

When hiring a vehicle the majority of suppliers take a deposit on arrival. This amount is held on your debit card and released when you return the vehicle. If you would like more information in regards to deposits when hiring a vehicle, then please see below.

Do all suppliers take a deposit?

Generally most suppliers in the UK do take a deposit on top of the rental cost. This can range between £70-£1250 depending upon the supplier and location of where you are wanting a vehicle. Here at Indigo we now work with a supplier that has a zero deposit. This service is only available at selected locations in the UK, and if you would like to take advantage of this service then. please contact Indigo directly to find out the options available to you.

Do you accept cash deposits?

With all suppliers all payment for both the rental and deposit must be on the main drivers payment card as we are unable to accept cash deposits.

How much is the deposit?

The deposit amount varies with supplier to supplier. We have one supplier that only takes a fuel deposit of between £70-£100 depending upon the vehicle you are given. If you would like to hire a vehicle with a low deposit, then please contact us directly and we will be more than happy to help.

What is the deposit for?

The deposit which will be held on your card is a security against things such as parking fines, fuel charges, speeding fines and is in case you are delayed when you return your vehicle. The deposit is released back to you at the end of your rental as long as you have received none of the above fines and have returned the vehicle with the correct amount of fuel in it.

Is the Deposit Refundable?

In the UK the deposit is held on the card for the duration and is released when you return the vehicle. For overseas rentals this may vary and the funds may be debited upon collection of the vehicle and then refunded upon return of the vehicle. Speak to our team directly to clarify which option is applicable to your rental.
