The deposit is a hold (pre-authorization) of an amount on your credit card. The deposit consists of damage waiver increased by the amount for one additional day of rental, a full tank of fuel and possible parking fines.
Pre-authorization is the holding of funds on the client’s credit card during the rental period. The pre-authorized amount is used in case the rental period is extended and if the client returns the vehicle with a lack of fuel or with a parking fine.
The deposit is automatically released within 30 days from the last day of the rental. The release of funds depends exclusively on the bank issuing the credit card and Avant Car has no influence on the duration of this process. Note that the client will not see a + on their credit card (as there was no -), and that the limit will be the same as before the pre-authorization.
A damage waiver is the maximum amount of liability for the vehicle (even in the case when the damage caused to the vehicle is much higher than this amount), provided that customers adhere to the Avant Car General Terms and Conditions.
The deposit consists of the damage waiver increased by the amount for one additional day of rental, a full tank of fuel and the cost for possible parking fines.

You can use any card (debit and credit) and cash for payment, but a credit card is required for the deposit – VISA, MasterCard and Diners.
The main driver is the person who signs the rental agreement and is solely responsible for the vehicle during the rental. Can a customer use someone else’s credit card? Yes, but only if the credit card holder is present at the vehicle pick-up and has a valid driver’s license and ID card/passport. The credit card holder must be indicated in the contract as the main or additional driver.
