Can I rent with a debit card?

While some suppliers do accept debit cards in the UK, others require renters to present a valid credit card. Avis and Hertz do not accept Electron or Debit Cards. While other car rental companies accept debit cards, conditions may still apply. Customers may not be able to rent certain classes of vehicle with a debit card, and they may be subject to additional online identification checks.

Can I pay with cash?

Cash is usually not accepted by major rental providers in the UK. However, cash deposits are allowed at the discretion of the station manager with a copy of your passport and airline ticket when you rent a car with Europcar. You can apply at reservation centre. Please note that cash refunds are not normally available and cheque refunds can take up to 28 days.


When paying for your rental car . . .

Payment is required by credit card or debit card. Cash, cheque, and pre-paid credit cards are usually not accepted. We recommend you check which method of payment will work for you best by calling your supplier directly. Note that third parties may pre pay for a rental but the credit or debit card presented at the start of the rental must always be in the name of the main driver. If a third party pays for the rental online, the customer must indicate the name of the person who will be driving the vehicle where shown in the booking process.
