“Alicante railway station block your credit card ”

Written on: 17/05/2014 by kernaghan (1 review written)

We were quoted $315 and decided to take the additional insurance $200 so we wouldn't have our funds frozen, we confirmed with the pick up desk our intention, we already had car excess travel insurance, low and behold a bond of $1048 was frozen. I wrote to Avis and this was their response

Unfortunately, the location is required to place a hold on your account.
The charge card hold is the estimated rental charges plus a range of
767.00 EUR.

We had rented from 2 other car rentals in Spain and this did not happen so be very wary, there was nothing in the car rental agreement indicating that a bond was required.
