It is best to prepay the station attendant for the amount of gas you would like to purchase in order to avoid a hold on your account for an amount greater than your purchase. When you pay at the pump a "hold" will generally be placed on your account to ensure that you have a large enough balance to cover the total amount of gas you might purchase at the pump. The "hold" is a predetermined amount before it is known how much gas you will actually buy. Your transaction may be declined if your balance is not sufficient to cover the "hold" amount. You also will not have access to the held funds until the final transaction posts to your account.
You can use your Card to do all of these things! But remember, most of these transactions will result in a "hold" on your balance. These companies usually hold an amount that is much larger than the actual cost of the rental, ticket, or room to cover possible expenses. This could mean that you will not have access to the held funds until the final transaction posts to your account. Please check with these companies about the details of their policy.
