Rent a car - deposit and credit card

Kreditkarte ANmietung

There is one thing essential for renting a car. It is to hold an international Credit card. You will have to pay the deposit of your rental car with a Credit card. The amount of the deposit usually depends on the amount of the deductible. You will easily find this information in the rental conditions of your chosen offer. At almost all car rental stations worldwide it is only possible to pay the deposit with an international credit card. The amount is blocked on the credit card for the duration of the rental. In the event of damage, this amount will then be retained by the rental car station. However, if the vehicle is returned in normal condition, the amount will be released again. Why do I have to pay a deposit? In this way, the rental car station can protect itself in the event of damage. Whether you are really liable with this amount depends on the chosen insurance. Have you booked fully comprehensive insurance without a deductible? The deposit will be refunded to you by the organizer. Therefore you are not liable yourself. Have you booked fully comprehensive cover with deductible? In this case, you will be liable for damage up to the amount of the excess (deposit).
