In general, an authorization of a minimum of $250 plus the amount due for the rental will be taken as an authorization against the payment method for security purposes. For debit cards, a deposit of $250 plus the cost of the rental will be taken as a deposit from the debit card. The deposit for high-value vehicles may be higher. These funds will not be available to you during the rental.
The rental location may also perform a credit check or may require additional qualifications in accordance to local policies to determine whether the renter qualifies for a rental of a luxury vehicle. The renter must meet the minimum criteria determined by the location to qualify.
Note: Depending on the banking institution the amount is not immediately debited but held on the cardholder’s bank account until the final rental charge amount has been debited. When the vehicle is returned, the invoiced amount will be charged to the credit card provided, unless you (the renter) present another form of payment.
