Car Hire without a credit card

Post by clare94 » January 18th, 2009, 2:03 pm

Hi,

I have just been informed that i cannot hire a car abroad, without a credit card! i do not have one and unlikely to get one due to bad credit! i do have a debit card, does anyone know of any car hire companies that will except this? or a small cash deposit? i am staying in cal n forcat.

Thanks

Clare

Hi Clare

To be honest I can't remember, i'm sure some will but those that do know will let you know for sure, plus I don't drive so it's always been the other half sorting it out.

But ... do what I've done, get yourself one of those pay-as-you-go credit cards. They're brilliant. Doesn't matter if you've got bad credit or that either. And you can't get into debt with them, because what you put on them is what you can spend :razz:
I'll stop moaning, when you give me a pay rise this :arms: big

Poppycars who advertise on this site will take your booking without a deposit. You don't pay a penny ( or Euro ) until you get the car. They'll meet you at the airport and you can pay cash. Just click on the link to the left of the page. Have a great holiday :smile:
It's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice :gmb:

You don't need a credit card with Phillip from http://www.motovidal.com either. You can pay cash when you pick up the car at the airport. He is very helpful and friendly too. We use them every time.
Feels good to be home :ele: :ele:
