Dollar Car Rental Debit Card

Post by Pirelli » Sat Mar 28, 2020 5:26 am

As I don`t have a credit card but a debit card, can I rent with such a card any car from Dollar Car Rental? Thanks a lot for support.

Dollar rent a car has a clear debit card policy. Debit cards can be used for rental of all classes except convertibles, premium or luxury cars. The debit cards must be issued under a VISA, MasterCard or Discover logo. Further the the reservation must be made more than 24 hrs before the pickup of the rental car.

This is not correct @Bentley .
You caan always use a debit card when renting von from Dollar, also when reservation was made on short term notice. Also you can rent a car out of the luxury class, premium or convertible class. Only 2 requirements must be fulfilled:

- you must show a valid driver’s license and one other form of identification
- you have to proof with an airline return travel ticket coincidence with the rental.

An advantage is that Dollar will not perform a credit check when you make a reservation with a debit card. But be careful. Your debit card must of course have available funds to cover the estimated charges plus an authorization of USD 200.00. After booking these funds will no more be available for any other use. ;) ;)

All what has been said is correct. But there is also an exeption from the rule. Debit Cards are always accepted when a Dollar Express member has noted such a card in its member profile. Another exception when a rental is a replacement rental. Then the debit card is accepted by Dollar without any problem.

If someone is interested, also Dollar Express Rewards members can pay with debit cards. They simply have to use it in their profile. They also can be used normaly for a insurance replacement rental.

I wonder always why people have debit cards only. More or less everybody who can afford to rent a car , can get a credit card at todays time. :x

For me there is no relationship between customers who can afford to rent a car and have either a debit card or a credit card.

You even can rent a car from Dollar when you pay in cash. For this purpose you only need a Identification
Cash Deposit Card. This card is necessary as an up-front deposit is required.
In order to apply for such a card you must be 20 years of age or older. As citizens of the states Michigan and New York you must have an age of 18 years.

Didn`t know yet that a car can be rented with cash payment only. What I already knew is that from Dollar Insurance Replacement rentals are possible with a debit card. I think that both payment methods are not usual on the car rental market. ;)
