We need to estimate the car rental charges and obtain an authorization number from your bank.
The estimate is based on:
- Expected length of rental
- Applicable rate including tax
- Incidental charges such as gasoline, etc.
This amount is not debited. It is held on cardholder's bank account until the final rental charge amount is debited .
However, there can be exceptions in some countries. Please see our general rental information for more detail.
Deposits and rentals paid in cash are limited within the Europcar network (where cash deposits are accepted they must be accompanied by additional forms of proof of identity - please check with your Europcar reservations office).
