Car Hire With A Debit Card In South Africa

Car Hire With A Debit Card In South Africa

Hiring a car with a debit card is no easy task, majority of all car hire companies on a worldwide scale only allow the use of a credit card, which can be inconvenient for many. We realised that this was affecting many people’s holiday plans which we hated, that in mind we decided to do something about it and contacted all the main suppliers in South Africa to see if we could arrange some form of solution. Eventually we managed to find a supplier that for our customers would accept debit cards as long as they met certain restrictions.

So What Are The Restrictions?

When we contacted and organised this deal they accepted it as long as we met a few restrictions into which cards are accepted and which aren’t. We grouped these restrictions into three generic restrictions for our customers ease.

Car Hire With A Debit CardEmbossed Numbers On Debit CardDebit Car Pin Number

    Typical restrictions are:

  1. The most widely accepted cards with our suppliers are Visa debit card and Mastercard debit card. However, if you don’t have either of those cards like Maestro, Visa Electron, Lazer and Switch are still accepted sometimes, although this is less common.
  2. The name on the card used to pay must match the name of the driver of the vehicle, we can’t accept payment from anyone apart from the main driver of the vehicle. If you want to use someone else’s card to pay you, they must be the main driver and add anyone else as additional drivers.
  3. In most cases suppliers will only accept cards with embossed numbers and letters, however in some cases printed cards are still accepted.

If you are unsure about any of the above, please contact our team. These are generic restrictions that are in place in most locations however even if you don’t meet the criteria some suppliers may be able to help. It is always better to contact our reservations team prior to making a booking, that way we can advise you of the best solution.

Very Pleased Customer

Used indigo in October last year they were so brilliant that I remembered the service I received & wanted to use them again.

So I went into my emails & found them I’ll be using them again this time around to book a car for when I’m in South Africa.

Great customer experience second to none. Well done!!!
