Hiring a car in Spain (or anywhere in the world) has traditionally meant that a credit card is needed by the car hire company. It has always been difficult to rent a car with a debit card if you don´t have a credit card. Obviously when you hire a car you are being given a vehicle worth thousands of pounds and so the car hire company has to take steps to protect their interests. Clearly there is the issue of the deposit to consider and hire car companies need a credit card in order to block the deposit as we cannot do this with a debit card.
Unfortunately however since the global economic down-turn a few years ago many banks have made it more and more difficult to obtain a credit card and of course not everyone has the funds available to leave a deposit of 1000 or 2000 euros. This is one reason why our Ultimate package is so popular as it allows debit card car hire at Alicante airport and Mallorca airport. When you book your debit card car hire with us you are given a final fair and honest price that includes everything and the insurance is complete so there is no risk to the customer. This is why a credit card is not a requirement and debit card car hire at Alicante airport is completely possible with Drivalia Ultimate.
