last time I rented a car they put a $1,500 authorization on my card.
DO NOT USE A DEBIT CARD WHEN YOU RENT A CAR. If something happens to the car they will charge a hefty deductible to your bank account and you'll be fucked. Often with credit cards there is some kind of built in insurance coverage for car rentals, I'm not sure exactly how it works but there is a much higher level of consumer protection with credit cards. Your bank could probably give a fuck if some car rental place fucks you over, it just means more overdraft charge $$$ for them.
