You can pay for travel bookings on Hotwire using the following major credit cards: MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, Diners Club, and JCB.
You may also pay for your booking with a debit card showing a Visa or MasterCard logo. Your bank will deduct the booking amount from your checking account balance. Note that there are some restrictions on the use of debit cards, such as limitations on the number of daily transactions and a set daily withdrawal limit. Hotwire.com does not accept prepaid or "stored value" cards for payment, including those showing a MasterCard or Visa logo.
Hotels: Some hotels may not accept debit cards as a deposit for incidental charges such as room service and parking.
Car rentals: Keep in mind while you may pay for your car rental booking with a debit card, many car rental companies will not accept a debit card as a deposit when you pick up the vehicle, and you will be denied rental if you don't have a credit card for the deposit. International car rental companies will only accept credit cards and require that you have as much as $1,000 in available funds on the card.
When searching for a car rental, you can choose to see only results for companies that accept debit cards for deposit at pick-up. Since this will limit your search range, the best deal available might not show up in your search results. See also: Car Rentals - Searching and booking
