I would like to rent a car in Portugal in September but my credit card doesn’t cover the whole deposit . Is it possible to use a debit card for the security deposit?


Some suppliers accept Debit Cards. The card must have a Mastercard or VISA logo and your name embossed on the front. It cannot be a pre-paid card. To view if a supplier accepts Debit Cards next to each car photo is a link entitled IMPORTANT INFORMATION, click this link to view conditions then chose PAYMENT where the terms and conditions appertaining to that particular car at your chosen location are displayed. Try a few different suppliers as they do vary.
