Expedia is passionate about making travel more accessible, that’s why we give you the flexibility to reserve your ride without paying in advance. With our Book Now Pay Later option, you can just present a valid credit card to pay in full at the pickup point. How’s that for easy? The car rental company will also place a hold on your credit card for the amount of the security deposit. For some cheaper deals online, you may be required to pay at the time of booking. Remember to take note of which payment options are available for the rental car you’re interested in.
