Credit cards:

In order to prepay your reservation you need to have a credit card that is open to both Internet and abroad payments.

The name you specify when making your reservation must match the name on the credit card you pay with. The same credit card also needs to be presented at the location, when you pick up your rental car.

You can use most credit cards. Debit cards need to be connected to VISA or MasterCard. Electronic card may also be used when you prepay your rent (pay now), just remember that you need to present both the electronic card PLUS a valid bank or credit card at the time of pick-up.

Further information regarding conditions for credit cards and depositions is available under Rental Qualification and Requirements and “Forms of Payment”.
