How to rent a car with your N26 card?

In order to rent a car, the main driver is normally required to be a credit card holder, but recently an increasing number of car rental companies have been accepting debit cards due to their growing usage.

As a result, our N26 debit card enables you to rent cars at a great number of companies. Here you’ll find some of the agencies that currently accept debit cards:

  • Alamo
  • Avis
  • Centaur
  • Enterprise
  • Europcar
  • Firefly
  • Joy rent
  • Locauto
  • Greater
  • SicilyByCar
  • Thrifty car rental

Before renting a vehicle, we suggest you contact the company: conditions for the rental depend on the single agencies so requirements may vary locally and nationally.

We also recommend checking if the agency accepts debit cards when you reserve the car as well as when you collect it, and whether they require the card to have embossed numbers.

Please also consider that:

  • in case an unexpected or unjustified amount is charged, you’ll first need to contact and possibly start a dispute with the agency. Only if the dispute has a negative outcome, we’ll be able to offer our assistance to start a new dispute via Mastercard.
  • the security deposit will be charged (and not authorized, as with credit cards). The deposit will then be credited back to your account after returning the car and if no damage is reported.
