Debit/Check Card Rentals – Debit/check cards are accepted at Airport locations in Canada. To use a debit/check card, proof of a confirmed round trip travel ticket (airline, cruise ship or train) must be shown.

On one way rentals, the renters must show proof of a confirmed travel ticket matching the pick-up and return locations.

In order to qualify for a cash rental, the renter must show a valid passport and proof of a confirmed round trip airline ticket (airline, cruise ship or train). Without this proof, cash can only be accepted as a form of payment at time of return. Cash deposits are not accepted for any one-way rentals. Cash qualifications may vary by location and are subject to change.
