I have not used a credit card since 2007

credit cards

don’t miss it, and really don’t WANT one. Since I don’t *have* a cc, there’s no way to slip up and charge something. Now having said that, I realize it can be a total pain to rent a vehicle *without* a credit card. I”m under the impression that you can PAY for a vehicle with a debit card, but you can’t RESERVE one with it. I’m looking at renting a motorcycle when I go to Reno in April. They want a credit card with a $1500 limit for the deposit. I’ve considered getting a credit card with just that limit on it. If they actually charge the deposit, I’d get it back when I return the motorcycle. So it would be debt in name only. I still haven’t decided what to do, because I certainly don’t want to have to walk in there with $1500 CASH for the deposit…
I don’t consider pulling from your emergency fund going back into debt, so I can say I’ve *never* slipped up since getting rid of my credit cards…
