Car Hire With A Debit Card in Spain

A picture of some accepted debit cards when hiring a car

We work with a number of suppliers in Spain who will allow you to hire a car with your debit card. Suppliers in Spain will normally freeze a certain value on your card to cover the excess and safe return of the vehicle. You will also typically need to have a card with raised numbers such as a Visa debit or Mastercard that can be swiped. Cards such as Visa Electron and Solo are unlikely to be accepted.

Indigo Car Hire
Average rating:

Brilliant Service

I did not have enough funds on my credit card so contacted indigo and took my chances. I had never heard of them and I was running out of options. I found them through searching the internet. The guys ran me through the process and took my debit card details. Once my reservation for the car came through I was overwhelmed that they were dealing with reputable companies, in my case Avis. I reached my destination and everything was waiting for me just as described. Incredible. Will use this company for all my car bookings. Very impressed. Thank you Indigo you saved the day.

Second to none

Indigo is by far and away the best car hire agent I've ever dealt with and as such, I use them every month and have never had a bad experience. Their operators are super friendly, very helpful and genuinely cheerful. Price-wise, I haven't found anybody cheaper and being able to pay with a debit card is a massive plus. Indigo's fully comprehensive insurance for £40 for the year is an absolute winner. If only all companies operated with such friendly professionalism, we'd be in a better place. Definitely recommended!

Brilliant Service!!

This review is 100% genuine. If you are questioning whether these guys are genuine or can really arrange Debit Card hire, its true! I have used this service a few times and it is spot on. No issues with car hire companies in the terminal, no issues with deposits being returned (although it does take a couple of weeks) and their customer service on the phone or webchat has been impeccable. Keep it going guys!!!

Easy process

I found indigo having realised that another company required a major credit card which I do not have.

I phoned up and booked a car easily, knowing that I could use my debit card... what a relief! I would certainly use this company again.

Friendly and helpful.
