The PEX Business Prepaid card can be used to rent a car, if the rental car agency will accept a prepaid debit card. Some rental car companies will accept a prepaid business card for the reservation, others will only accept the card for payment of the rental itself. When in doubt, please contact the rental agency directly.
Business administrators are also able to restrict a cardholder from being able to rent a car using the card by updating the spend rules for that cardholder.
- To restrict car rentals, navigate to the category table on the Spend Rules tab for the cardholder.
- Uncheck the boxes under the column Travel/Transportation. The Card will decline at all merchants within that category, including airlines, railroads, taxis, buses and gas stations.
- If you only want to restrict car rentals and not other types of transportation, you may also create a custom merchant category which only includes car rental companies.
- Note: Changes to Spend Rules are real-time, so be sure to inform the cardholder.
