Can I use my UK credit or debit card at locations abroad?

We offer you a couple of ways to pay to make it easy. You can pay online now or pay on collection and we'll charge you at the end of the hire. The choice is yours.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Diners/Discover credit or charge cards. We do accept debit cards in some locations, however this varies so please be sure to check out our location specific terms and conditions. for information on the specific location you are headed to. We don't accept cards with Visa Electron, American Express Travellers Cheque cards and Pre-Paid cards – even if they carry the American Express, Visa or MasterCard logo. Germany issued Maestro cards are only accepted in Germany. Two payment cards may be required at the counter for higher-value vehicles; if you've booked online, or over the phone, this will be highlighted on your booking confirmation.

Remember – the name on the card must match the driving licence of the main driver.
