We will take a pre-authorization to your credit card depending on your estimated total and the type of coverage you select. See our coverage options here.

What is a pre-authorization?

A pre-authorization is a temporary hold and doesn't appear on your credit card statement unless used. It may be used to pay any tickets, extra kilometers or missing gas, etc. A pre-authorization expires after 3-7 days automatically after the car is returned.

How much will my pre-authorization be?

The amount of the pre-authorization will be determined by your estimated total and the coverage you select.

  • If you select a 0.00 deductible coverage the pre-authorization will be US$300.00 + the estimated total of rent.
  • If you select coverage with a deductible amount the pre-authorization will be the deductible amount + your estimated total amount.
  • If you choose to use an external form of insurance the pre-authorization will be US$3,000.00 + the estimated total of rent.

See our coverage options (Link) to learn more. The pre-authorization will not appear on your credit card statement and will expire automatically after 3-7 business days; no need to ask AmeriRent for a credit.
