As you probably know, most truck rental companies require a debit or credit card in order to pick up a vehicle, but yeah! It is possible to rent a truck without a credit card. You can reserve the truck and pay your final rental costs with cash. However, to release the truck at the time of pick up, you need to provide a deposit using a credit card or cash.
Why do truck rentals need a credit card?
In order to protect themselves from the unexpected, truck rental companies ask for a security deposit before allowing someone else to drive their vehicles. It's because taking a deposit is easy with a credit card as the amount can simply be blocked or held on your account until you return the truck safely.
Does truck rental companies accept cash?
When you're renting a truck without credit card, you'll need to pay deposit in cash. Rather than dealing with cash deposits, most truck rentals simply require a credit card upon pick up to make the process more manageable.
