2. CREDIT CARD AUTHORIZATION and USE: If using a credit card authorization for the US $500 rental deposit (long-term rentals of 21 days or more and Can-Am Spyder rentals require a deposit of US$ 1,500) per motorcycle, your deposit is processed with the MasterCard, VISA and JCB credit card organizations in US$.
