using prepaid credit card to rent a car?

I'm renting a car from budget tomorrow. Just wondering if I can use a prepaid credit card, since I do not own a credit card. They also do not accept debit cards. I know I used a prepaid card before when I rented from U HAUL. Thanks in advanced

You should contact them. I know that a prepaid card is almost the same as a credit card or debit card. They may require that you have a deposit on the card for example they may require that you have a $500 deposit available on the card. you should defly call and check with them so the outcome won't inconvenience you of they don't accept it. Good Luck!

You should have asked Budget, when they told you they won't accept debit cards. I would guess you could, but I would have guessed they would accept debit cards as well.
