I know you cannot use a Debit or Pre-Paid card to rent a car in the USA, as they require a Credit Card to pre-authorise the entire (likely) cost of the hire and also hold the information for any potential extra charges etc.
I also noticed that it is possible to pay the rental charges (when you return the vehicle) using a Debit card …but not a Pre-Paid card.
So, my question is: Is Revolut considered as a “Debit” or “Pre-Paid” card in the USA?
I am assuming “Debit” but as I and my family are taking a two-week break in Florida this year (no, not Disney), I need to be sure before heading off.
I have already booked and paid for a rental car online, using a Credit Card that I will be taking with me but may well want to use the Revolut card for additional expenses.
Last (but by no means least), has anyone had any issues using Revolut at petrol (gas) stations?
As part of our trip we’ll be driving down to Key West and will most definitely need a few “fill-ups” on the way (of both car and people)!
