Found 5th Jun 2009
hired a car online today and called to find out where to pick it up, while i was talking to the guy i mentioned the deposit, and he told me it has to be on a credit card, the deposit is £650 but only have a limit of £500

has anyone came across this problem before and if so how do i get around it.

raising limit is a no-goer and the guy said i cant pay cash or use anyting other than a credit card.

thanks in advance!!


I think you answered your own question

If you have more than one credit card you should be able to split the deposit between them. Other than that you could speak to the credit card company and explain the situation they may be able to raise your limit temporarily.

add the additional amount to your card and you will have that as the £ 650 (explain to credit card company first to see if they would agree to this
