When it comes to hiring a vehicle paying for it can often be a little confusing as some suppliers will only accept credit cards for payment. For more information on what type of payments we are able to accept, please see below.
Depending on the location and the debit card that you hold, it may be possible to pay for a vehicle using your debit card. If you do need to hire a vehicle and only have a debit card, then please contact us directly to find out the options available to you.
All suppliers will accept a credit card for payment, as long as the card is in the main drivers name and there are enough funds on the card for payments. There are no additional fees for the use of a credit card.
If you want to hire in the UK with a Visa Electron card then we may be able to help. The numbers on your electron card must be raised up and the card must be in the driver’s name.

Many suppliers will not accept this type of debit card as it sometimes will not process on their system. We currently work with 2 suppliers that are able to accept Maestro cards. This depends on the location from which you want to hire a vehicle and the numbers must start with 6759 and the card must have raised numbers (embossed). If the numbers are flat to the card we will not be able to accept this type of payment card.

It may be possible to pay for a vehicle with this type of card due to the wide variations of MasterCard’s. As long as the numbers on the card are raised up and it clearly states the words MasterCard Debit on the card then this may not be a problem however it is always advisable to contact us directly to see if we are able to accept your payment card. This depends on which location you want a vehicle from and is only available if you contact us directly.
We are unable to accept cash for any payments towards a hire vehicle; all payments must be made on the main driver’s payment card as using cash does not leave a paper trail and can cause a lot of disputes in relation to whether payments have been made or not. So cash payments are not accepted for car hire in any instance..
Most suppliers ask for all payments to be made on the same payment card all the way through from booking the vehicle to collecting it. If you need to hire a vehicle and need to use 2 payment cards, then contact us directly as we may be able to help depending upon the location from which you are wanting to hire a vehicle, and what payment cards you are wanting to use.
Yes this can be an option depending on the terms of your hire including the location, the card held by the driver and the proximity to the rental date. For more information on third party payments please click here.
