You will need to give us a payment card in your own name that has enough money available on it.  

How much is the pre-authorisation?

The amount of the pre-authorisation is calculated based on:
1) a fixed value of the excess responsibility in case of damage which is vehicle dependent; and
2) the vehicle rental price (including all optional extras you have requested), calculated at the start of the rental based on the intended length of the rental. This security deposit amount can be minimised by opting for the Avis Complete Protection Package at our counter, and our staff will be pleased to assist and explain further.
