Europcar houses a large range of vehicles, including sedans, coupes, hatchbacks, wagons, SUVs, and vans.
Europcar accepts most major credit cards for vehicle payments, including AMEX, Mastercard, Visa, and Diners Club. You can also pay with a Visa or Mastercard debit card.
In addition to the estimated cost of the rental, a NZD $200 security deposit will be held by Europcar for credit card payments, while debit card payment will require a NZD $400 security deposit. For credit card payments, the refund will continue to be automatically released by the customer's bank within a standard period of 3 to 14 days after the rental has been closed. For debit card payments, it may take your bank 7 to 21 days to refund the bond.
