I was also told that in the case of certain debit cards, the hold placed on the card for incidentals stays there a few days longer than with other debit cards. Some debit cards will see the hold removed immediately upon check-out, while others will see it removed a few days after check-out. I have no clue which cards get the faster removal and which ones don't.

And one particular CM told me that sometimes, in the case of "some debit cards," their computer system will automatically just apply the incidentals hold at check-in, whereas with other cards the system doesn't automatically do it and the CM's can tell it to apply the hold. Again, I have no clue which debit cards trigger an instant hold and which ones don't.

I used to work for Enterprise. All rental car company would place a temporary "hold" on the renter's credit card. The hold is usually $400 or double the amount of the whole rental cost. The hold will be cancelled when the car is returned. I believe you can rent a card using a debit card that has visa or master card logo on it. But you will have to contact your bank what will happen when a hold is placed on your debit/credit card.

We stay at the Wordmark on Katella and right next door is Hertz, I only have a visa debit card and they are happy to rent a car to me... they would do a quick check and they would charge more on the day and then refund when car is returned without incident...

Last year at PPH we paid everything in cash and they still took a CC for incidentals. Maybe because it was a suite and we had concierge? Hmmm.

To the OP, everyone is talking Debit Cards, but you didn't say anything about one. I'm thinking you need to deal in cash only, right?

Some Enterprise locations in Northern California will take cash for car rental, but they want your pay stub and employment verification. I'm not sure that Southern California locations would do this though.

Enterprise will let you pay with a debit card or cash (plus a deposit) as long as you can show a return ticket. I would look into getting a prepaid visa card to make it a bit easier on you.
