How is debit card car hire different from hiring with a credit card?
There is will be no difference in the quality of service when you book with Clarify Car Hire - after all it is only the payment method that has changed! The cars will also be to the same standard as any other hire. There are a couple of points that are worth bearing in mind though if you are using a debit card to pay for your var rental in Gran Canaria.
- Some rental companies may require you to take out their additional insurance when you are not using a credit card. This often has the benefit of reducing the amount of security deposit required when you get to the desk.
- Any security deposit will be debited from your card so please make sure you have the available funds to cover it. Provided you are not subject to any charges, this deposit will be refunded after you have returned the car but it can sometimes take up to a week for the money to be credited back in your account.
Unless the Premium Package is taken a Visa, Mastercard Credit Card or AMEX is mandatory. The main driver must have a Card in their own name when collecting the vehicle. This card must have sufficient available credit to cover the excess / deposit amount (which will be pre-authorised on the Card throughout the hire period) which can take up to 30 days to be returned depending on the issuing bank of the card. Any local charges, extras or other equipment or services purchased at the car hire desk will also be charged to the card.
If the Premium Package is taken, you can use a Visa, Maestro or Mastercard debit card - you will be asked to leave details of your card on pickup. Please note, this deposit may take up to thirty (30) days to be returned to your debit card depending on the issuing bank of the card and neither OK Mobility nor Clarify Car Hire take any responsibility if the amount returned is not the same as the amount taken due to exchange rate fluctuations and/or bank charges. The card must be in the main driver's name. Any local charges, extras or other equipment or services purchased at the car hire desk will also be charged to the card.
All cards presented must be in the renter’s name. A security deposit plus the estimated cost of the rental will be taken at the time of rental.
Cash payments may be allowed but the deposit must be paid via debit or credit card and the deposit will be a minimum of 500 EUR. Please contact the local branch for details.
Please be aware that if you use your debit card for the security deposit and/or the fuel deposit it can take up to 30 days for this to reach your account once it has been refunded by the car hire supplier at the end of the rental. This is due to the international banking systems not due to delays by either the car rental company or Clarify Car Hire.
