Using McKesson FCU Plastic to Rent Vehicles

Some rental car companies choose not to accept debit cards as it increases their risk when renting vehicles.  Others that do permit debit cards may place various restrictions and requirements upon the use of debit cards when renting vehicles. Most car rental companies preferred mode of payment is with a credit card because the car company is able to create an authorization and freeze on the credit card's available line of credit which reduces their risks.
 

A primary benefit to members using credit cards as opposed to debit cards is the improved ability to dispute and recover amounts with credit cards. 
 

After considering the above and instances of fraud experienced with car rentals involving debit cards, McKesson FCU will no longer permit McKesson FCU MasterCard debit cards to be used when renting vehicles.  Please use your credit card or if you do not have one you can apply for one at www.mckessonfcu.org.
