The credit card is no longer an indispensable document for car rental. Find out how to rent also with debit, debit and prepaid cards.

The basic document for car rental, we know, is the credit card. Even more important than the driving license, the credit card is used to guarantee the car you have entrusted. In fact, the renter authorizes the security deposit on it and, in the event of damage or theft of the vehicle, charges the insurance deductibles. However, the costs of managing credit cards keep many people away from requesting one, especially if you will use it only for car rental. Consequently, many renounce the rental and fall back on public transport, with all their limitations.

 

How the world of car rental is changing

car rental is changing

Driven by the growing diffusion of prepaid cards and by the loss of potential customers who do not have a credit card, the rental companies have started to study alternative guarantee methods. Today in Italy some major companies accept, for example, bank debit cards. It should be noted immediately that the accepted debit cards are in all respects similar in appearance to credit cards. That is, they always belong to the Visa, Mastercard or American Express circuits; have the numbers and the name of the holder in relief; they are issued by the bank in which the holderhas the account. The only obvious difference lies in the fact that they bear the wording “debit card”. They are therefore linked to the availability of money in the account and do not have a credit facility like credit cards. Other car rental companies instead give their customers the opportunity to rent using prepaid cards or debit cards. In this case the rates are higher than the rental with credit card because, as an additional guarantee, coverages are mandatory to cancel the deductibles for damage or theft of the vehicle. It is therefore true that you spend more but you also have the serenity of being able to travel without worrying about having to pay salty bills. In addition, the charterer requests to present a second identity document with photo and a copy of the flight ticket or return train.
