Car Hire With A Debit Card in France

Car Hire With A Debit Card in France

Hiring a car in France with no Credit Card can prove tricky as many rental companies operate a credit card only policy. Here at Indigo car hire we are proud to make our services available to as many people as possible. As such we have made arrangements with some of our suppliers that will allow our customers to book car hire with a debit card in France

Renting a car with a debit card has never been easier, you simply contact Indigo car hire, explain your requirements and we will find you the right supplier for you. We’ll do all the leg work!!

Most car hire companies In France insist on drivers providing a major credit card for a security swipe on arrival and don’t accept debit cards. We understand that not everyone has a credit card and wanted to make sure we can assist you with your requirements. We can accept most major debit cards across most of our vehicle groups meaning a wider choice of vehicles to suit your needs.

Car Hire With A Debit Card in France

When hiring your vehicle in France through Indigo car hire we advise two forms of identification are provided upon collection of the vehicle in addition to your credit or debit card you need to produce your full drivers licence, it’s important to note that if you hold a UK two part licence both the photocard and counterpart have to be produced for it to be considered a full licence. A second form of identification is also required and this would be either a recent utility bill and/or passport.

Debit cards cannot generally be used of rentals outside of the UK as credit card is usually mandatory. There are a couple of exceptions to this rule which are UK Car Hire, Car Hire in Spain, Car Hire in Italy and Car Hire in Holland. Not all of our rental suppliers accept debit cards and it should be made clear to the reservations agent you do not hold a credit card before booking. Not all types of debit card are accepted some exclusions are Visa Electron and Solo amongst others. It is important you confirm your debit card is acceptable for Car Hire In France before booking. Unfortunately we can only place debit card bookings over the phone and not via the website. Please call our call centre on +44 (0)113 880 0748 for assistance.

When using a debit card the supplier may ask to freeze a certain value of funds to cover the excess and to ensure the safe return of the vehicle. These deposits can vary so please check prior to booking. If you are unsure at any point one of our dedicated experienced rental agents will be more than happy to help.

Excellent Service

We always use this company as we don’t have a credit all I can say is they are faultless from start to finish. We would never use anyone else.Excellent service 😀😀

Fantasic Company!

Dealing was Indigo was a fantastic experience. They made it so easy - even allowing us to change our booking a few days before our holiday to benefit from a cheaper rate for a larger vehicle. And dealing with Enterprise who we were assigned to by Indigo were brilliant to deal with too - pick up and drop off was very efficient and easy.
The only critisicm I have is that no mentiion was made about the insurance excess and how you can purchase an insurance excess waiver policy to cover this - I just happened to find out from a friend fortunately before going.
But not having a credit card we have not been able to hire a car before now and finding Indigo who can arrange hire with a debit card has been a real help to making our holiday in France this year so much better.
So thank you Indigo Car Hire!
