Car rental Catania without creditcard

Hi guys!

My boyfriend and me will go to Sicily in one week. As we are planning to drive around the island in two weeks, we wanted to rent a car. Unfortunately you need to provide the creditcard of the main driver at almost every company. The main driver is my boyfriend... and we only have my creditcard.

As I am not 25 yet, I would need to pay more than 200 euros extra because of my age. It's not possible anymore to get a creditcard for my boyfriend in one week, so:

Who knows a reliable car rental company in Catania where you can rent a car without a creditcard? I did found two companies in Trapani, so in the worst case we'll go there by train and rent a car over there. However, it would be easier to rent a car in Catania.

Thanks a lot!!!

Do you have a debit card?

Hi Vagabonda,

No he doesn't have a debit card, so we can only pay cash deposits..

It's very important to hire from a reputable supplier.

Consider Avis.

All cash rentals require a deposit and a Cash Qualification form must be completed at the rental station.

That is correct.

Once again depending on the supplier, and the number of days for the hire, it is possible not to pay any additional fees for a hire in one town and a return in another.

And there's a big difference between an excess policy online and the insurance purchased at the desk.
