Why Do Car Hire USA Supplier’s Require A Credit Card For Collection?

Hi all,

Its a question we get asked quite a bit, so I thought I’d try to address it today.

Why do suppliers require a credit card for collection?

To collect a vehicle from our suppliers you will require 3 things

1) Your usrentacar.co.uk voucher (either via our app or printed from our website)

2) Your full driving licence (both parts)

3) A credit card in the name of the lead driver.

The credit card is required to validate the CDW/LDW part of your insurance. Suppliers purchase and provide insurance on the car rental by checking for the following key items

1) Bankruptcy

2) Criminal record

3) Financial stability

4) Address stability

5) Rental location

6) Rental length

The credit card is used to help check fianicial creditability, as you can imagine the supplier is handing over $20k cars and need to be satisfied they will be fully covered in case of an accident.

So I hope this helps explain why the supplier requires a credit card imprint. Remember you can still pay usrentacar.co.uk for your Car Hire USA on a debit card without charge.
