What is the Debited Deposit?
The Liability Deposit is required as a deposit upon the collection of your vehicle. The Liability Deposit will be a full debit from the credit card supplied (all funds processed against your card). The dollar amount is determined by the Liability Reduction option selected as mentioned above.

Is the Debited Deposit refundable?
The Liability Deposit is fully refundable provided the vehicle is returned on time, to the correct location, undamaged. The credit card surcharge is also refunded provided the credit card used is Visa or MasterCard (non-refundable for American Express).

Daily Rate Maximum Charge

Credit cards

​The Liability Deposit (plu​s any other credit card transactions) is subject to a 2% credit card surcharge for Visa and Mastercard and 4.6% for American Express in addition to the liability amount. This surcharge is refunded when the Liability Deposit is refunded for Visa and MasterCard holders. For American Express the surcharge is not refunded when the Liability Deposit is refunded.

Don’t forget to check that your credit card has the funds available and that the amount does not exceed your daily withdrawal allowance.
