Car Rental Payment

A valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) is required.
We do not accept payments in cash. If you select Globe’s CDW (Collision Damage Waiver) then you may pay by debit card or in cash, however we will still require a valid credit card.  If you are using one of our kiosk, then credit card is the only method of payment accepted in all cases.

Yes, but only if the card was issued outside of Canada.

Yes, unless you add other options which may affect the price.

The total amount of the rental will have to be paid at the time of pick up as well as a 300$ pre-authorization (or 500$ if CDW coverage is selected alone without the PAP) which will automatically expire after 3-7 days.

No deposit is required, however Globe Car Rental will freeze $300 pre-authorization (or 500$ if CDW coverage is selected alone without the PAP) on your credit card. The pre-authorization will not appear on your credit card statement and will expire automatically after 3-7 business days; no need to ask Globe for a credit.

A pre-authorization is a temporary hold and doesn't appear on your credit card statement unless used.  It may be used to pay any tickets, extra kilometers or missing gas, etc.  A pre-authorization expires after 3-7 days automatically after the car is returned.

According to Ministry of Transport of Quebec winter tires are mandatory during the winter season. This requires us to store and change 2 sets of tires (Summer & Winter) at every season.  The tire fee covers the cost of tires, installation, balance, equipment, and storage.
