If a provider does indicate the need to provide a credit card when booking, and you do not have it, check the status of your debit card on www.bindb.com. The fact is that some debit cards are actually credit cards with zero limit. If your card is one of them, you may use it.

Additionally, in some proposals, cancellation charges may be changed. Be sure to pay attention to the relevant clause in the rental terms.

I fell for a spontaneous desire and went to cities of France by car. I rented a car via this car aggregator, which has all offers from the well-known providers. There are wide choice, advanced options, payment on the site. Everything works stably and clearly. There were no problems with the car receipt and return. I recommend this resource to those who like to organize travel by themselves. By the way, everything is quite affordable.
