In order to understand why the customers prefer Debit Card Car Hire to the traditional way using credit cards, we looked into the consumer trends around the world.

One of the reasons is that less and less people are applying for credit cards or their applications are turned down by the banks. This happens especially in Europe where the people are more cautions when it comes to debt and financial commitment.

The second reason for which the customers tend to pay for car rental services with debit cards is the low limit of their credit cards. As many banks or financial institutions build trust over time, they issue low limit credit cards at first and then increase the credit over time.

Debit Card Car Hire is a custom service, Synergy Car Hire provides and CANNOT be booked directly online. We strongly encourage our customers to contact us directly before making any travel plans which include any of our custom services.

Can you use a debit card to rent a car?

One of the most asked questions in the car rental industry is: Can you use a debit card to rent a car?

First let’s clarify that in general, the customers can pay for the car hire cost using their debit cards.
However when it comes to the security deposit things are different: most of the rental suppliers require credit cards.
So the real question becomes: Is Car Hire With Debit Card Deposit possible?

The answer is: yes, it is possible, however the rental process is a bit different then when using a credit card.
By that we mean, that the companies who accept debit cards have different rental requirements. These include: specific debit card types, more identification documents and sometimes extra insurance.

Debit Card Car Hire or to be more precise Car Hire With Debit Card Deposit is one of the most demanded car hire services these days.
Many major car hire companies advertise on their websites that they are able to hold the deposits on debit card, although that this is not possible at all their locations.

We have sorted this out for you! Although it is not available to book online yet, please contact us via email or phone to arrange your Car Hire With Debit Card Deposit.
