Credit Card Bonds:
When you provide a credit card bond, Sunset Rent a Car will pre-authorise it at the start of your rental for $500.00. A credit card pre-authorisation holds or secures an amount on your credit card, allowing Sunset Rent a Car access to the funds in the event additional charges need to be taken, such as damage liability, cleaning or fuel charges.

A credit card pre-authorisation is not a debit from your credit card but it will limit the funds available on your credit card. Please note that Sunset Rent a Car is unable to cancel a pre-authorisation once it has been processed. The pre-authorisation is automatically cancelled by the customer's credit card provider between 14 – 28 days if the pre-authorisation is not used by Sunset Rent a Car. Please note that the credit card used has to be in the same name as the lead hirer picking up the rental car.

Note: MasterCard and Visa Debit cards are considered a credit card, and the same rules apply as above.
Local Renters: A minimum $1000 credit card pre-authorisation will apply to local renters with the following conditions:

  • 1. Is renting from Perth or Sunshine Coast Airports but not flying in, i.e. does not have a boarding pass
  • 2. Lives locally; within the greater metropolitan area of the city in which the airport is located
  • 3. Is a first time renter with Sunset
  • 4. Is not a Corporate Renter
