The merchant will handle the return in accordance with Visa guidelines. Store return policies may vary. The merchant may credit your card, provide a cash refund, or issue a store credit. If the merchant reverses or cancels the transaction on your card, there will be a fee and it may take up to 10 days for those funds to become available on your card.
8. What is a pre-authorization?
A pre-authorization means that a temporary hold is placed on a portion of your funds over and above the actual purchase amount until the merchant settles the transaction - usually within 3 days. During this time, these funds will not be available to you to make additional purchases or ATM cash withdrawals. As an example, pay-at-the-pump gas stations may pre-authorize $75 and restaurants will pre-authorize 20% over the bill amount. Other merchants such as hotels and car rental companies may have higher pre-authorization amounts or other requirements. We recommend that you contact the merchant in advance to ensure that you will have sufficient funds to cover the purchase and any pre-authorization amount.

Yes, but a pay-at-the-pump transaction may involve a pre-authorization of $75 or more. So as an example, if you do not have $75 available on your card, the transaction will be declined. By paying for your gasoline inside, only the actual purchase amount will be withdrawn from your card balance.

Yes, however some car rental companies may elect not to accept your card as a form of payment.

To avoid any issues, we advise you to first contact the rental car company and ask them about their company policy.
11. Can I use my CAT Platinum Visa Card™ to book a hotel?
Yes, however keep in mind that hotels will process a pre-authorization for more than the actual cost of the room until you checkout and settle for extra charges such as room service, telephone charges, damage, etc. These preauthorized funds may not become available on your card for up to 10 days. To avoid any issues, we advise you to first contact the hotel and ask them what their company policy is.
12. Can I use my CAT Platinum Visa Card™ at a restaurant?
Yes, however keep in mind that restaurants process a pre-authorization for approximately 20% more than the actual bill in anticipation of a tip that may be added. These preauthorized funds may not become available on your card for up to 4 days. To avoid any issues we advise that prior to dining, you make sure your balance is sufficient enough to cover the bill plus a pre-authorization amount.
13. Why was my card declined?
Your card may have been declined because the purchase amount was greater than the available balance on your card. Some retailers will allow you to do a split transaction where they allow you to use two separate payment methods. Merchants are unable to obtain the balance on your card so it’s important to always know your balance before making a purchase. Please also note that there is sometimes going to be a delay on processing if you have just loaded your card.
14. Can I use my CAT Platinum Visa Card™ for preauthorized payments or bill payments?
Yes. Just check with the company that is accepting the payment to see if they accept Visa cards and follow their payment instructions. Preauthorized or recurring payments are charged automatically to your card. It is important to remember to have sufficient funds on your card to cover these transactions as the company may suspend or cancel your service if the transaction gets declined.
