Car Rental Companies That Accept Debit Cards

In the past, most if not all car rental companies would insist on a credit card in the name of the lead driver. This was sued to cover any local excess amount. The excess being the amount that you would be held liable for damage to the vehicle that was your fault. So if, like me, you were anti credit cards, it was next to impossible to rent a car. 

Over recent years, some of the rental companies are seeing the errors of their ways and are now providing car rental with no credit card. At most locations it is now possible to find a few suppliers that will accept a debit card and also car rental companies that now offer car rental with no deposit or low deposit.

Most car rental companies require a local security deposit, which is normally blocked against the lead driver's credit card.  Some suppliers will let you use a debit card, but most insist on a credit card. Security deposits can vary dependent on the car category. At the moment, car rental security deposits in Glasgow Airport can be between £500 and £1,500.

What is a car rental Security deposit?

This is an amount that is blocked on the credit card of the lead driver at the start of rental. It normally covers the car excess amount and the deposit for the fuel in the tank.

The amount can be substantial and as it is blocked from your car it can severly limit how much you are able to use your credit card when on holiday or on business.
