With our Book Now Pay Later option, you can simply hand over a valid credit card to pay the cost in full at the pickup spot. How’s that for stress-free? The car rental company will also put a hold on your credit card for the amount of the security deposit. For some cheaper online deals, you may be required to pay at the time of booking. Take note of which payment options are available for your choice of rental car.
