Car Hire with Visa Debit Card!?

Hi I have booked car hire before at Girona Airport with a Visa Debit Card but can't seem to get anyone to do it at Perpignan.......which is a shame as Aer lingus have cheap flights there at the moment.

I plan to get a gite in that region.

Any Advice welcome..

Full insurance/excess cover is normally optional. It is also possible to have a separate insurance covering the excess.

I have been trying all these car rental companies and they seem to be adamant that its a credit card or nothing. Please can anyone tell me if any other rental companies will rent to me with a debit card?

I can't find a company that stipulates openly that they accept debit card only. I have your same problem.

We have never had a problem renting from AutoEurope with a Visa debit card.

A rental car company accepts a certain amount of risk accepting a debit card rather than a credit card. I would be very cautious about renting with a debit card as you may be required to pay for much higher amounts of insurance coverage than you would otherwise need.

Autoeuope will indeed accept payment with a debit card but their vouchers state that the rental car company may not accept one and the you may need to present a credit card at pickup.

The voucher that I received from AutoEurope Australia earlier this year clearly stated that the rental company (Avis USA) would require a credit card imprint and a debit card would not be accepted.
