Car rental companies have the ability to hold amounts of money from your credit card when you hire with them for their protection in case of any damage.
However, normally, when clients are asked to provide a credit card specifically, it is so that the company can hold an absurd amount of money on the card throughout the rental period. Upon return of the vehicle, they then proceed to keep a large amount of that money for damages. Even when these damages are non-existent.
At EDI rent a car we find this unethical and completely against our code of conduct. We do not take deposits nor hold any type of money on our clients cards.
We want to make sure your stay in Alicante doesn’t come with any extra charges and make renting a car here as smooth as possible.
