A valid credit card or debit card must be provided for all rentals. The rental location accepts all major credit cards and debit cards for the payment for rental and ancillary goods and services. We do not accept cash as a payment type.
In most cases, the rental location will require a deposit (bond) of AUD 200.00 at the commencement of the rental. However, if all of the criteria below are met, the rental location will require a deposit (bond) amount of AUD $1,000 in addition to the rental charge:
- Renting from Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Darwin or Perth Airports but not flying in, i.e. does not have a boarding pass for the day of commencement of the rental, and
- Lives within the greater metropolitan area of the city in which the airport is located, and
- Is a first time renter with Redspot, Enterprise, National or Alamo, and
- Is less than 40 years of age, and
- Is not a Corporate Renter
For the security deposits of AUD 200, the rental location will accept all major credit cards and debit cards but will not accept cash. For security deposits (bonds) of AUD 1,000, the rental location will only accept major credit cards, and will not accept debit cards or cash.
Charges for options and coverage must be settled at the commencement of the rental together with a deposit (bond). If a credit card is used for payment, the credit card holder will be listed as the hirer on the rental agreement, and the credit card holder must be present at the time of rental commencement.
A credit card fee applies to all charges except the deposit bond. Credit card surcharges are non-refundable.
