    Reus Car Hire 8th Jan 18 at 8:50 AM
    Good morning everyone. I am looking to hire a car from Reus airport. Pretty much the only option I am being given is Firefly, who seem cheap enough. However, I have seen that I will need to put a large deposit down on a credit card when getting there. I don't have a credit card and am not sure I'd get one either - is there a way around this? From hat I've read I could take out their insurance when I get there, would this then remove the need for a large credit card deposit? And does anybody know how much it is likely to cost for their own insurance when I get there? We are stopping at a site 10km from Cambrils, and it is recommended we have a car to explore, else I would make do with public transport.

    Thanks in advance.

    Buying the hire firm's own excess cover insurance at the desk will reduce the amount they need to hold on your card to just a hundred or two for fuel and incidentals, down from the excess amount of up to !!!8364;1,500. But the cost of their excess cover can be substantial.

    It's possible that a debit card or prepaid card with enough in the account to be put on hold can be accepted, but until a particular card is put into the payment terminal nothing is certain.
