For rentals in other countries, You must present another valid major credit card at the time of pick-up.
24.3.1 An authorisation for a Deposit will be required at the start of the rental period. The authorisation procedure allows Europcar to assess the final transaction amount and receive the protection of an authorisation before the start of the rental period. It confirms that the card holder s bank account is valid and within the available spending limit.
24.3.2 Europcar estimates the amount required for authorisation and requests an electronic authorisation from the card holder s issuing bank (the Deposit ).
