Car Hire: Try Indigo next time Car Hire: Try Indigo next time

When renting a car in the UK or abroad many car rental companies insist on the production of a credit card at the point of collection of the car. The main reason for this is a security hold against the vehicle for their protection, and the amount can vary from as little as £60 (€72) pounds to as much as £1,250 (€1,515). As Indigo work with such a wide range of companies, they can offer deposits of all levels.

Many companies insist that this deposit must be held on a credit card, which can cause many problems for customers if they are unaware of this fact before they arrive at their destination to collect their car. It can be particularly tricky in Spain and other countries worldwide. Due to the recent credit crunch, many people these days prefer to not have a credit card to avoid the temptation to overspend, and a debit card meets most people’s needs these days.

There are many kinds of debit cards on the market, and around 90 per cent of these are perfectly acceptable. Visa debit cards with stand up/embossed numbers are generally accepted with no problems. However, Electron, Maestro and pre-paid cards can cause problems. It is still possible to hire a car with these but they do restrict you in terms of choice of company as they are not universally accepted.

If you wish to hire a car but only have a debit card, it is important to contact Indigo directly, not book through the website, so that they can tailor make your hire and find a company that will accept your particular card. Therefore you can travel with the peace of mind that you will have no issues on collection which could affect your holiday or travel experience.

Indigo can be contacted by telephone 00 44 (0) 113 308 2016 (they offer a free call back service), through the website on www.indigocarhire.co.uk, or by email on [email protected]. They will be happy to give a free no-obligation quote that suits your particular needs. Although Indigo are proud of their reputation as UK car hire specialists, they help many people in this way wanting to hire cars in Spain either for themselves or for visiting family. So... whatever your car rental needs and whether you have a credit card or not, give Indigo a try next time you need car hire and they may surprise you!
