    For anyone without a credit card after they file bankruptcy who plan
    to rent a car in the Tampa or Orlando, Florida airports:

    I emailed Budget and Avis airport rentals in the Tampa and Orlando
    airports about whether they accept debit cards instead of credit
    cards. Avis doesn't accept debit cards, but Budget does. The Budget
    email reply came back as follows:
    "The rental locations in Tampa and Orlando will accept debit cards.
    At the time of rental an authorization hold will be placed on the
    credit card equal to the cost of the rental plus 25% or a minimum of
    $200 whichever is greater."

    The reply from Hertz:
    "Hertz will accept debit cards at the beginning of the rental at all
    U.S. Corporate locations and select Licensee locations. Our
    locations in Tampa and Orlando are Corporate. We also do not accept
    ATM cards that do not display the MC or VISA logo as these cards are
    only used to withdraw money from the customer's bank ATM. At this time
    Hertz does not accept gift, stored value or prepaid cards at the
    beginning of the rental. You can use these type of cards at the end
    of the rental. Debit cards issued outside of the U.S. are accepted in
    the U.S.

    "You will need enough credit left on the card to cover the estimated
    cost of the rental, plus $50.00. Estimated rental charges include the
    rate, taxes, any insurance coverage's purchased, refueling, and any
    fee associated with that particular rental. A hold will be put on your
    credit/debit card to cover the estimated charges. The time required
    for the hold to be removed is determined by the credit/debit card
    company's policies, it could range anywhere from 10 to 30 days.
    Approval for the additional $50 cannot be waived."
