Most car rental places do accept debit cards as payment for car rentals as long as you have enough money on the debit card for the car rental and enough money to also have a hold payment until you return the car to the rental place.

Some car rental places put an extra hold amount on your credit or debit card which is a security deposit until you return the car to them so you need to have enough money on the card for the security deposit.

Some smaller car rentals may not charge that but other larger ones might and it depends on the place.

To make sure that your car rental place accepts debit cards for the car rental call up the car rental place directly to be sure before you go there.

Hello, when signing the contract, you must pay a deposit, the amount of which depends on the class of the rented car. It is paid in cash or by blocking the appropriate amount on the tenant's credit card. If all the conditions of the contract are met, the funds will be returned after using the car. I can recommend you to use Under 25 Car Rental, where you can arrange a rental without paying a deposit.

Yes, you can do that, but it depends on a company, so it would be better for you to contact a company that you're willing to rent a car from, and ask about that because it varies. For instance, I can tell you that when I was renting a car from Exotic Car Rentals Miami, I could even pay with Bitcoins, and I doubt that any other companies can provide such an option.
