Are there any companies in UK that don't require credit card as the rules seem to have changed since I last hired.

I have a debit card but not a credit card

Thanks

Like you I only have Debit cards and no Credit cards at all.
But, despite what most car hire terms and conditions say, they do accept Debit cards..
You just need to contact them by phone or email to make sure that the one you want to use will accept a Debit Card.

Hertz and Europcar are two we have used in the last 12 months.

Hi Her indoors and everyone else hiring a car in the UK.

I was told by a hire company to book a car late on Saturday evening - that way you'll find the cheapest price.

I look at the car hire websites around 23:00 on a Saturday - it works!

Cheers,

I used Enterprise with a debit card, they require 200 pounds deposit which is quickly returned on safe return of car.

i had car from sixt at heathrow airport 2 weeks ago. terms & conditions stated must have credit card when collecting. but got to desk, handed them credit card & girl said if you have the card you booked with do you want to use that. maybe as had the no excess offer as not much more. think the needing credit card is so they can reserve money on it which say cant be done on the debit card or maybe girl couldnt be bothered taken another cards details.
