For rental deposits in the U.S. and Canada, you should have at least $200 in available funds. The rental agency will require a credit card in the name of the primary driver as a deposit. Some rental locations may accept debit/check cards for deposits but may have additional requirements such as requesting proof of a roundtrip transportation itinerary in order to rent the vehicle. If you are using a debit card, the car rental company will place a hold on your deposit amount, and you will not have access to these funds until the car is returned. If optional items are elected for purchase (e.g., insurance), additional available credit will be required. Please note that the amount of available credit that is necessary varies, depending on the type of car and the rental period.
