Do rental car agencies put a hold on your credit card?

planning on using my bank card to rent a car. Does anyone know if they put a hold on your card for potential fees?

Most do, but the amount varies from one company to the next. You can check with whomever you're planning to rent through. I've had to pay from $100 to the entire rental upfront.

thanks, although it may not matter as I am renturning the car before I cruise so in theory the hold should be lifted. I'll be sure to ask

I'd call your rental car company and have them explain everything to you before you go. I've worked inside a rental company and ALL-THE-TIME people would be freaking out because of stuff they didn't know. IE- if you pay with a debit card they hold more money and do a soft credit check, if the credit check is not up to par, they will not let you use that card to pay. It's just better to call ahead, you don't want to take a chance.
