Avis, Hertz, Budget and Thrifty will accept debit cards at most locations with the Visa/Mastercard emblem at most locations. This excludes any luxury fleet bookings. The debit card must not be a prepaid card, and an additional bond may be required upfront.
Europcar will accept debit cards in limited circumstances only, excluding luxury vehicles. A bond will need to be paid at the start of the rental, to be refunded on its return. Europcar also requires a renter paying by debit card to reduce their loss damage waiver.
