Mahé car rental


i want to ask some questions about car rental on Mahé.

i want to ask if local car rental companies (Alpha Rent A Car etc.) wants your credit card to rent a car?

Because all international companies i found on internet need credit card (not debit) in order to rent you a car.

I have only debit card.

Or alternatively is it possible to pay cash only (without any reserve(for excess etc.) by credit/debit card) at the airport?

And how much is insurance excess, i found no specification from these local companies. For example excess limit by international companies is too high - usually over 500-1000 euro...

I do not know any company in Seychelles which is not requesting credit card for renting a car. All the companies I worked with were renting cars if I was giving them my credit card details. Nobody will rent you a car if you are not able to guarantee for the excess liability which vary between 500 and 2000 euro. So you will not be able to rent a car at the airport if you do not have a credit card or you do not pay the excess liability upfront.

What can be done, is you can give a credit card as deposit for security but at the time of returning the car request to pay by cash.
