2. Expect to Pay a High Deposit
Most of the better-known car rental brands, such as Hertz, Budget and Avis, require a fairly steep deposit, which will be returned to you only when you bring the car back in the same condition you found it. The deposit is typically anywhere between $200 and $400, and it is usually calculated based on the value of the car. They don’t actually take the money but it will be held on your credit or debit card, rendering the money unusable, until the car is returned.
