Renters between the ages of 18-24 must secure the car with their own major credit card, not a debit card. At the end of the rental any charges may be paid with a debit card and the credit authorization will be released. The young renter's fee is $27.00 per day and those in this age range are encouraged to purchase the additional insurance(s) and this is not required.
