Rent a car without credit card

Hi,

We will be arriving to Catania 27th May. It is last minute trip. We made a credit card, so we could rent a car, but our credit card is not fully active yet, so cannot book and rent a car.

Does anyone know, is there a chance to rent a car without credit card?

Thank you, Martina

It depends which company you use. Some will do it without a credit car but most will require one.

Hello

My daughter has same problem, they are 4 student and need a car for about 10 days, pick up in Trapani and drop off in Catania. Is it possible without any credit or debit card? In this is cash deposit necessary or not, if yes how much?

Best regards Ales

As indicated above, yes it is possible, and yes there is a deposit.

Is your daughter a young driver, or with a licence for less than a year as that could be an issue?

It's not a license, it's a permit and yes you need one in conjunction with your original license.

Hi Ales V,

Requirements vary supplier to supplier, so it's really best for your daughter to directly contact her intended supplier for information on the deposit, and the amount.
