Debit Card Policies

This location does accept bank debit cards with the MasterCard or Visa logo at the time of rental for specific car groups with the following requirements:

  • Renter must be at least 25 years of age.
  • The name of the renter must be on the debit card.
  • A debit card is accepted as credit identification for Economy cars, Compact cars, Intermediate cars, Standard cars and Full-Size cars as well as Intermediate SUV's and Standard SUV's only.  A debit card is not accepted as credit identification for any other car group.
  • At airport locations, you will be required to present proof of a return airline ticket that coincides with your rental.
  • At off-airport locations, a current copy (within the last 60 days) of the customer's cellular phone bill, home telephone bill, bank statement or utility bill is also required.  The address on the statement or bill must match the address on the renter's driver's license.
  • You will be subject to a credit check to determine and ensure credit worthiness before releasing the car to you.  If your credit file is frozen with Equifax, you will be required to lift the restriction prior to your rental.  Lifting the restriction does not guarantee that you will be able to rent a vehicle as you will still be subject to a credit check.

Avis may request an authorization hold against your account for the estimated charges of the rental but reserves the right in its sole discretion, to request an extra value to be based on certain factors as we deem appropriate:

  • Most rentals may require an authorization hold of the estimated rental charges plus $200.00 USD.
  • Rentals of 4 days or more may require an authorization hold of the estimated rental charges plus $300.00 USD.
  • If you have prepaid the rental with a debit card, the hold is $250.00.

THESE FUNDS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR YOUR USE. When the rental is over we will process the reversal but the bank may take time to post it back to the account.  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.

Positive identification in addition to your driver's license may be required.

Note: Prepaid Debit/Gift cards are not acceptable methods of credit identification to pick up a car at any location.  Prepaid Debit/Gift cards are accepted at time of return only.
