Car rental agencies might accept a large cash deposit in lieu of a credit card. However, if you have a debit card, that can often double as a credit card. Check to see whether your debit card contains a Visa, Master Card, or other credit card logo. Just be sure there's cash enough in the account!

I am not sure if car rental companies still do this or not but I remember a couple of times long ago where they accepted a large cash deposit. When I returned the car the cash was used towards the rental and if money was due back to me it was paid back on the spot. Enjoy your vacation! :-)

Oh, and be sure to have your proof of insurance card with you and double check if your policy will cover possible damage to a rental car because if it does cover then you won't 'have' to pay the extra per day insurance charge.
