Not In The List? Try Get A Low Deposit
Some car hire deposit companies when using our booking engine can provide you with a very low deposit which is typical seen as around £75, here's how you find the lowest deposit possible:
Run a quote for your desired location and choose the car which you are interested in.
This still doesn't show you the deposit cost, so select the car and the car rental company that you like the look of then click the T&Cs section which is pictured here, remember to have a look at a few different suppliers!
Once you have clicked the T&Cs click the tab that says "Deposit, Excess and Cover" and under the Deposit / Excess you will see how much the deposit held on your card is.
This is going to be held on your card for the full duration of the rental, upon return and inspection of the car the deposit will be unfrozen in full.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you also must meet the card criteria, some companies will only accept credit cards whereas others will accept debit cards, in order to find this out navigate to the "What You Need At Pick Up" section of the T&Cs.
