I do several rentals a year and I have an annual 'excess'policy costing £49;I obviously,therefore,do not take out the policy offered by the rental company,however the deposit system seems to vary widely,some do not take anything,some take 300e,and our latest,Victoria,took 700e and debited my account immediately(this is the first time that's happened,the others usually just swipe the card and 'hold' the deposit)

It would be intersting to know other peoples views on this practice.

 We also do several rentals a year and have taken out an excess policy which we explained to the car hire people, but it did no good they still insisted on taking 300 euros deposit which I thought would be blocked until we returned the car in good condition, wrong again the deposit was debited immediately and we are currently in dispute over this practice with car hire 3000

Like many others on this forum car rental as raise it head again after a lot of soul searching ,We have now found a independent company ( not sure if i can name them) which do not require any deposits so your credit card is safe. We have always payed on arrival.
