Yes, Christy’s accepts all the credit cards listed below. The credit card must be in the renter’s name. Checks or cash cards are not accepted. The amount of security authorization depends on the location you are renting from and will be discussed during the reservation process. Please call for the exact amount required.
- American Express
- Discover Card
When you pick up your rental, there is a security authorization applied to your credit/debit card. This authorization will appear as a pending transaction on your bank statement. This is done to verify you are providing a valid account. The charge will fall off your statement within 1-8 days for a debit card and 10-30 days for a credit card.
Please note: When released, it will not appear as a credit on your bank statement. The charge will simply fall off your statement and there will no longer be pending charges from Christy’s. If you no longer see a charge from Christy’s on your statement, the authorization has already fallen off. If you see a processed charge from Christy’s on your statement, this means you have been charged for fees associated with your rental and may contact us at (401) 944-9800 to request additional information if needed.

All Christy’s vehicles come equipped with an EZ-Pass transponder (please see associated fees listed on the rental agreement). If you prefer to use your personal EZ-Pass instead, you may remove ours from the vehicle’s windshield and replace it with your own.
Please note: If Christy’s EZ-Pass is kept somewhere in the vehicle (i.e. the glove box) there is a chance it may still pick up on toll fees, so please be sure to remove it from the vehicle and replace it before returning. All tolls reported from your rental period are your responsibility.
