hi i am a young driver, i am 22. i am flying to madrid in september for a week, i got a price for one of your cars, 46 for the week and a 35 euro young driver charge. but i want to know about any excess charges i may have to pay when i arrive or if i have to hold a certain amount of money as a deposit. also i don´t have a credit card, is a visa debit accepted?
Most Rental Car companies require a Credit Card on arrival. The security deposit is ¨ held ¨ on the card and not withdrawn, for the duration of the hire and released when the car is returned without any claims or damages. Credit Cards provide a higher level of security for the rental car supplier, as opposed to a Debit Card. Some rental car companies like GOLDCAR will accept a Debit Card but you must have enough ¨credit ¨ on the Debit Card to cover the Excess insurance amount. This Excess amount can vary wildly between 300-3000€ in certain countries. The Excess amount will be withdrawn from your debit card when you arrive.GOLDCAR will accept Debit Cards on this basis in :- Cyprus, Croatia, Spain, Portugal, France, Greece (except Rhodes), Malta, Netherlands, Romania & Mexico. In Ital Olbia & Cagliari.
