Europcar accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover Cards. For all 'pre-pay online' bookings, the person in whose name the vehicle is booked MUST be the person whose credit/debit card is used.
Debit cards will only be accepted if either (1) a credit card is also provided to cover the excess; or (2) the customer purchases our Super Collision Damage Waiver product, which reduces the excess to €250.
At the time of rental there must be sufficient credit on your card to cover all charges including the excess/deductible amount. The excess applies per incident, not per rental.
Payment must be made with a credit/debit card in the principal drivers name as we do not accept cash or the credit card from a third party. Holders of a 'Chip and Pin' card must know their PIN number.
Regardless of the level of coverage purchased, ALL renters will be subject to a minimum preauthorisation on their credit card of the vehicle excess amount plus €50. This is in the event of traffic fines, toll charges etc.
