How to rent a car or hotel with a Debit Card

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — thebalancedspreadsheet @ 8:46 am

Recently I have been asking and answering different financial questions on the Cash Commons website. A question was asked about how to reserve rental cars and hotels without a credit card. You can read the full question and my response (the handle name is The Balanced Spreadsheet) on the website.

As someone who does not have a credit card I must use a debit card on all my rentals. Supposedly it is harder to rent with a debit card only but I have never run into that problem. A lot of people cite the trouble of renting with a debit card as a reason to carry a credit card as an “emergency” but simply put, I do not think that is a very valid reason.
