Car Hire With A Visa Electron

Car Hire With A Visa Electron

Hiring a car with any debit card can be a hard and tedious task especially hiring with a Visa Electron, for some reason they are not generally accepted as form of payment across the world. This is down to the fact that they aren’t a reliable form of payment. Although we can deal with debit cards comfortably we have found it a real struggle to be able to accept this form of debit card, in fact we have had to turn down many people in the past.

It was unfortunate but this ruined many people’s plans as they had to rearrange transport methods and at Indigo car hire we hate that. We enjoy giving people great customer service that they can remember, not making them have to re arrange their plans but there was truly nothing we could do in this situation, until now.

This is why we are so happy to be making this announcement, we can now accept Visa Electron cards thanks to one supplier. This as always with these sort of cards comes with certain restrictions however we have managed to narrow it down to just one restrictions. This restriction is that the name on the card must match the name n the licence of the main driver.

If you meet the criteria you are one step closing to being able to hire, but you are not quite there yet. As part of our UK rules you must be 21 or over and have held your licence for a year prior to hiring with us.
