Hi everyone, I’m new in this community!
I have a question about the Curve Card. I have ordered the free one as I’m not a huge spender.
My question is: I’m located in Italy, if I want to rent a car with an agency, they’re asking for a € 800,00 deposit as a pre-authorization which will be “refunded” as soon as the car will be returned.
I was wondering if that amount of € 800,00 is charged on my bank card as soon as the Curve Card is swiped or if Curve will charge me only in case of partial refund from the car hire agency (for exemple when the operator finds a scratch and charges you for it), so I could have my money avaliable during my trip as I would do with the standard credit card.
What I’m asking, more simply, is: will my bank card be charged by Curve only in case the agency charges me something or will my bank card be charged anyway for € 800,00?
Can someone please explain in the most detailed way possible how does the “deposit” thing for car hire agencies in Italy works?
Thanks in advance.
