Customer questions about East Midlands Airport car hire

hi im looking to rent a car from East Midlands airport on 2 april for 1 week the problem is i dont own a credit card my partner who is travling with me does but does not own a driving licence due to a medical condition is there anway we can hire a small cheap car with him paying and leaving a deposit on his credit card, I know I can do this with enterprise but the cost is higher to hire there cars

Hi, I am sure this will be fine as your husband will need to be the main driver and can present his credit card on arrival, you'll just need to add yourself as an additional driver so you can drive. Additional drivers do not need a credit card.
