It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs. Can I rent a car at Sofia Airport without a credit card? In general, you always need a credit card to rent a car from EasyTerra.

You pay a deposit when you pick up the car. You need a credit card in the name of the main driver to pay this deposit. The rental company will then put a temporary hold on your credit card for the amount of the deposit so they can recover the costs of any damage or other extra costs.

When you return the rental car, it will be checked for damage or other defects. If no damage is found, the amount of the temporary hold on your credit card will be released. You can read more about the deposit on this page: Car rental deposit
