Hiring a car without a credit card?

Hi

We are travelling to Paphos in May this year and would like to hire a car during our stay.

My partner and i do not own any credit cards as we both cleared them off early last year and have decided they are not for us!

Is it possible to hire a vehicle in Paphos without a credit card?

If so what documentation would we need to provide and can anyone recommend a company that accepts alternative payment?

Looking forward to a response

Thank you

Hi, not sure about this one but in lieu of a credit card probably the car hire companies would require you to give them a refundable cash deposit to be withheld in case of damage. The smaller local companies would probably be more flexible on this

Brill!!

Where abouts is Stevens located?

We are staying at Limnaria Gardens.

Do you usually call into their office or meet up at the airport?

Thanks for all your replys

Stevens car rentals web site is www.stevenscarrental.com. Don't go by the prices on the web site - e mail them direct.

When we booked over the web I'm almost sure we paid using our debit card, so this might be an option worth enquiring about.

Thats interesting.

I am booked with Stevens for June, would prefer to pay by cash

rather than flashing my credit card.

Thinks I will drop them e-mail asking about this.

I've hired from cyprus-car website in the past. You can book online but you pay on delivery, (i.e. when you arrive) and they accept Euro, Sterling and U.S. Dollars as well as traveller's cheques, according to their website.
