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.

Book with Indigo today and get a completely hassle free car hire, we organise everything for you from the start of the rental to the finish. Don’t bother worrying about hiring a car and all the forms and email exchanging that you need to do, we will do all that for you. Also with our knowledge, experience and authority we can often get you a much better deal in regards to decreasing the price of the rental.

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 main restrictions for our customers ease.

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

The first restriction that was set in place was that the numbers on the card must be embossed, meaning they are raised significantly from the front of the card and indented on the back. Usually you will also find that these numbers are in a silver colour.

Secondly the card must be a Visa Debit card as on arrive this is the only type of card that is accepted by the suppliers machine.

Lastly the drivers licence must have the same name on it as the card that is produced when you get to the desk. There may however be a work around for this so please contact us if you passed the other two restrictions but not this.

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!!!
