Are Car Rental Deposits Refundable?

Are Car Rental Deposits Refundable?

The short answer is yes, car rental deposits are refundable. With that been said depending on the car hire supplier you book with, the length of time it takes for your deposit to be returned can differ. This is because some suppliers choose to pre authorise the payment, meaning that you are not able to spend this money, but the money is not taken from your card. The alternative is that the supplier takes the money off your card and then refunds the money to your card. The process of refunding your money usually takes 5 to 10 working days.

Can I Lower My Car Hire Deposit?

Yes, many suppliers offer different deposits for car hire. In some locations we are able to offer car hire with no deposit which is great if you don’t have a lot of money spare and can’t afford to have a large deposit held on your card. We also have several suppliers who offer car hire with a low deposit, this means you only have to pay a significantly smaller deposit than the usual large deposits.
