How Long Will It Be Until My Bond is Refunded?

Checking you car damage banner

Normally, renters should get their deposit back between 5 to 10 business days (or less) once the vehicle is returned. Note that some car rental companies with better systems are closer to the five-day mark, particularly if you book during the off-season.

If you book during busy periods such as Christmas and Easter, it may take longer for your bond to be refunded. It is also dependent on your bank, with some banks taking longer than others to refund the security bond.

If you have not received your bond after 10 business days, feel free to contact our Customer Care Team and we will follow up with the car rental company for you.

The security bond refund depends on a few factors . . .

If there are any outstanding charges for damage, these may be taken directly from your security bond. This means that you may not be refunded the full amount.
