Dollar Car Rental Makes It Easy to Rent with Debit Cards

Dollar Car Rental, the leading family brand in the car rental industry, is rolling out an industry-leading debit card policy making it easier than ever to reserve a car using a debit card. The policy will eliminate credit checks, reduce proof of return travel and ID requirements, while also lowering the renter age restriction from 25 to 20 years old.

Rentals booked more than 24 hours in advance will only require a debit card and driver’s license. Rentals booked less than 24 hours in advance, or rentals for Convertibles, Luxury and Premium vehicles, can still use a debit card but require two forms of identification and proof of return travel plans. The policy will also reduce the incidental hold amount from $350 to $200, plus the cost of the rental, for both debit card and credit card rentals. Dollar accepts all non-prepaid debit cards backed by Visa, Mastercard and Discover.

This new policy change further demonstrates Dollar’s commitment to investing in services that enhance their members’ experiences and sets a new standard for family-travel. It is also built on the brand’s philosophy of exceptional customer service dating back to its founding in 1965.

The new policy is valid at all of its company-owned locations across the U.S. For additional information, visit
