car rental in JBR

Hi all, me and a group of friends are thinking of renting a car at JBR the coming weekend and drive over to KL.

I tried renting the car online through hawk but it stated no debit card allowed.

Is it possible to rent a car without the use of credit card (through debit or cash instead)?

Do share your experience and if there's any places to recommend for renting a car in JBR.

I think mostly all the big players are requesting you sign the blank credit card bill before they hand over the car to you. Cannot help with that.

Hello the company I work for Tipoa Car Hire can provide rental cars at JBR:-


To answer your questions.

ALL car hire companies require a CREDIT CARD. Cash and debit cards are not acceptable. This is not because of payment of the rental car fee, but this is ALL about SECURITY. Believe it or not often cars are never returned !

A credit card offers the suppliers some comfort and and the ability to trace the hirer if required to do so. This is known as the "security deposit"

Tipoa accept debit cards online to pay for the rental fee, but a CREDIT CARD would be required at the time of collection.
