Why do I need to pay a security deposit in order to pick-up the vehicle?

The purpose of the security deposit is to cover additional charges that may occur during the rental period.This is expressly mentioned in the Rental Agreement. Once you have returned the vehicle and it has been verified by an InterRent agent, we will release the amount of the deposit on your bank account (the amount of the deposit is not debited but held on cardholder's bank account until the final rental charge amount is debited).
Please note that we don't accept debit cards as their rules may not be adapted to our security deposit policy.

For destinations in France, Portugal and Spain we also accept debit cards as well as EC-Karte with the following conditions: Customers will be charged the deposit amount.

It is essential that once the rental is completed, the client returns to the collection office to have the deposit refunded (if the returned vehicle is in good condition or has not been involved in any accident etc ...).

Please keep in mind that being a debit card, we can not make the return without having the physical card. You can pay with a card (rent + fuel + extras) and leave the deposit with a different one. In both cases, the cardholder must be the same owner of the rental contract.
For the United Kingdom, American Express is accepted as long as the customer pays an extra £ 4 per reservation.
