Credit card payment for renting a car in Australia

Paying with credit card

Which credit cards are accepted by car hire companies in Australia?

Visa and Mastercard are accepted by Australia’s major car rental brands. American Express and Diners Club cards are accepted by some car rental providers. We recommend you check beforehand if you need to pay with American Express or Diners Club. You’ll need to present your credit card when you collect your rental car and sign your rental agreement; you may also need a second credit card depending on the type of vehicle you select. Additionally, the security bond for your vehicle will be held on your nominated credit card.

Can I use someone else's credit card?

No. For security purposes, the credit card used must match the name of the driver on the booking. It is mandatory that the name, address, and signature on the credit card are reflective of the details printed on the driver's licence. If the name on the credit card does not match, you may be refused a vehicle.

I forgot my credit card. Can I show a photo of it instead?

No. The physical credit card (along with your physical driver's licence) must be sighted by staff at the rental counter prior to the signing of your rental agreement. As you will be taking the rental car off site, this is a security measure that needs to take place.

If payment by credit card isn’t an option for you, here’s some information on other payment methods.
