Deposits and approvals

How much is the deposit?

In general, a minimum of $200 plus the amount due for the rental will be charged to the payment method for security purposes. The deposit for high-value vehicles may be higher. These funds will not be available to you during the rental. 
For rentals in Canada, the conditions can be found in the Rental Information.

Note: Depending on the banking institution the amount is not immediately debited but held on the cardholder’s bank account until the final rental charge amount has been debited. When the vehicle is returned, the invoiced amount will be charged to the credit card provided, unless you (the renter) present another form of payment.

How long after my rental finishes will it take for my deposit/ approval to reach my account? 

Please allow up to 10 business days for the funds to clear and become available in your account. 

What is the difference between an approval and a deposit? 

An approval is an amount held on your credit card and may be used for the deposit. An authorization or deposit shows as a pending amount on your card until the rental is completed. Once the rental is completed, the authorization or deposit will be released to your card and the final amount of the rental charged.
