Due to a recent rise in Debit Card Fraud and the increased security risk, DCFCU is disabling the option to use your debit card for car rentals as of 2/16/17. Please call us to determine if there are any available alternatives or options specific to your account.
Rental companies prefer that you use a credit card rather than a debit card. Most rental companies will require you to put a large monetary hold (up to $350) on your debit card and provide additional forms of identification which gives the fraudsters more personal information. Many rental car companies will also run an automatic credit check, which requires you to provide your Social Security Number. Our Members’ privacy and security are our top priority. We appreciate your loyalty and understanding on this matter. If you have any further questions, please call us at 305-471-5080 to speak with a representative.
