My friend needs a Credit Card to travel to the USA. Does anyone have suggestions as to which is better or worse as she only needs it there and won't use it in on the Island as she uses Debit cards here.

Ah, that'll be to guarantee the uninsured excess, refuelling potential cost and deposit to ensure return, etc if there isn't full CDW. They'll need to block, so any credit card, it won't actually be debited unless there's a claim at end of hire.

As you will know, even if you pay for full CDW and pay all the "extras" before you travel, sometimes your card is swiped and the money (in our case (Malaga) over £400) is debited and then credited some days after you return home.mad.gif

I've never had "guarantee" monies debited for car hire or hotel extras. Ive had funds blocked.

If they deduct dollars from a Sterling account then re-credit them later, there is a danger that you lose on the exchange rate.

 

They shouldn't take any money until they need it. Sadly it does happen in some dodgy places but the USA is pretty well regulated on these sorts of issues so it is more likely to happen in Thailand or similar. Of course, as exchange rates go up and down you could actually make some money if they do deduct and then re-credit. It is never likely to be much though.
