Debit Card Car Hire in Spain

In order to hire a car with a debit card in spain there are a number of requirements that must be met. You must have the correct type of debit card, appropriate identification including your driving license and a utility bill or passport. You will also normally need to have sufficient funds for the supplier to freeze a deposit on your card.

  1. The card should be a Visa debit card or Mastercard debit card as they are usually the most accepted with our suppliers. With that been said If you don’t have either of those cards like Maestro, Visa Electron, Lazer and Switch are still sometimes accepted, although this is less likely.
  2. On collection of your hire car you will normally need to provide forms of identification in addition to your debit card. You will also need to produce your driving license. If you hold a UK two part license then both the photocard and counterpart must be produced in order for it to be valid. You will also need to provide either a recent utility bill or passport
  3. The name on the card must match the main hirers name, we cannot accept payment from anyone but the driver of the vehicle. If you would like to pay with a third party card they must meet the all requirements and be a named driver on the rental.

  4. Most suppliers require the card to have embossed letters and numbers, printed cards are still acceptable in some cases however this is less likely
