Can I pay for a rental with a debit card?
Most U.S. locations accept bank debit cards with the Visa or MasterCard logo as credit identification at the time of rental if you are at least 21 years of age. Canada locations do not accept bank debit cards as a form of credit identification. In most cases, U.S. locations will perform a credit check for debit card renters to determine credit worthiness at the time of rental. The renter must meet Avis' minimum criteria in order to rent. Please refer to your reservation confirmation for location specific policies.
Avis reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to seek a debit card authorization hold in excess of the estimated rental charges. When using a debit card at Avis, there may be a minimum hold of $200 and a maximum hold of the estimated rental charges will be placed on your account. Upon returning the vehicle, Avis will process a release of the unused portion of the hold subject to your bank's procedures. The hold may take up to 2 weeks to be released by your bank.
If you fail to return the vehicle as agreed, Avis will obtain additional authorizations from your account to cover the rental charges. Avis is not responsible for any returned checks or over-drafts based on this policy. This policy applies to both U.S. residents and foreign renters. Positive identification in addition to your driver's license may be required.
Prepaid debit/gift cards are not acceptable methods of credit identification to pick up a car at any location. One of the above mentioned cards must be presented. Prepaid debit/gift cards are accepted at time of return only.
