As a security measure, we add a temporary authorization of up to $150—usually for first-time renters only. We temporarily authorize your card to ensure there are sufficient funds in the case of an extension or community violation such as a smoking fee or a fuel fee.
The authorization is voided and the money is not taken from your card. However, this will usually show as a pending charge for 3-5 business days before it disappears. When the charge settles you will only see the actual cost of your trip.
