Some rental companies have blanket rules regarding this. They will only accept a credit card in the name of the renter. Others will accept it if the card holder signs a credit card authorization form. This form gives the renter permission to use their card and stipulates how much the renter is authorized to charge on it and for what services such as the rental, extras, bond (security deposit)/excess (deductible) etc. Before you make a booking, contact us to find out if the rental company will allow you to use a credit card in the name of someone other than the renter.
