Plan Ahead Regarding Rental Car Considerations

Plan Ahead Regarding Rental Car Considerations

If a rental car is part of your travel plans, remember to use your Cinfed Mastercard credit card; Cinfed debit cards are not authorized at rental car agencies.

Why? Because the security of our members’ accounts is essential to us. Your car rental agreement will allow additional charges above and beyond the amount listed. The extended holds and additional charges could cause overdrafts to your checking account.

To protect our members, Cinfed debit cards are not authorized at rental car agencies. Even if you booked your rental online, the agency will require you to present a card at the time of pickup; using a credit card means your account is more secure.

In fact, both Cinfed World Mastercard and Cinfed Platinum Rewards Mastercard offer rental collision coverage plus additional features to enhance your travel experience:

While you may have plenty of time to complete your holiday shopping, when it comes to holiday travel, planning ahead with your Cinfed accounts is essential to ensuring you will get the most for your money and reduce last minute problems before departure.

  • No foreign transaction fee
  • Fee-free balance transfers and cash advances
  • Double points earned on travel booked through CU Rewards

Finally, be sure to complete the Travel Notification form before you travel. There may be limits on debit and credit card account to protect you from fraud on charges outside your home area. By giving Cinfed the heads up, you’ll be able to use your card with no worries.
