Payment method

To book a car on ABC AUTOCARS, you must have a current, eligible payment card listed on rental agreement or/and on your account. We accept credit and debit cards but don’t accept prepaids cards.

Verifying your payment card

When you request to book a car, we send your payment card information to your bank. Your bank accepts or denies the transaction. If we’ve prevented you from booking a car because of a problem with your card, it’s likely due to one of these reasons:

– You’re using a prepaid card that we don’t accept.
– Your billing address is incorrect.
We process the billing address and card number exactly as you enter it. Then your bank determines whether they can verify the card. A problem with an address is the most common verification issue.
Some banks are very particular about the address format. Check your billing statement or call your bank to get the exact address format for your card.
If the problem is with your zip code, try any previous addresses or try the bank’s zip code. ‘
– Your payment method issuer or bank has placed a hold on your card.

Whatever the case, we can’t verify or accept a card if your bank denies the transaction. If we can’t verify or accept your card, we recommend that you contact your card issuer for further details. Or you can enter a different payment method following the instructions below.
