Payment Methods in Canada

payment options

When you rent a car in Canada with VroomVroomVroom, there are certain payment methods that will be accepted. In order to understand what payment methods you can and can’t use in Canada, take a look below.

Credit Card

Credit card is the most common and widely accepted payment method by car rental companies. By paying with a credit card you are able to hold the bond for your rental and pay any additional charges through your card. Make sure that your credit card is in the same name as the renter and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the rental and the bond amount.

Accepted credit cards*

  • American Express
  • Visa
  • MasterCard

* You will need to double check with the car rental company to make sure your form of payment will be accepted. This is a guide only.

Debit Card

In most cases, you will need to present a credit card on arrival however, you may be able to pay for the rental on return with a debit card. Take note that only some suppliers will accept a debit card. Even if certain suppliers do take debit card, it does depend on the car rental location and if they will specifically take this form of payment. Additionally, you will need to make sure that your debit card has a Visa or MasterCard logo on it, otherwise, it will not be accepted.


Suppliers will not accept cash. A credit or debit card will need to be presented when you arrive at the car rental counter. Once you return to the car rental company, you may be able to pay for the cost of the rental with cash, however, you will need a card to hold the bond when you arrive at the counter. Cash alone will not allow you to rent a car, unfortunately.
