Canceling credit card. Pending Authorization hold

I'll be canceling my credit card next week. I used the card for car rental last month and although rental is closed and charge is posted, authorization is still not released.

What happens to the hold once the card is canceled?

You'll still be liable if a charge goes through under that authorization. It sounds like it won't, so you don't have to worry about it.

The authorization didn't fall even after 30 days. I called Avis, who said they had released the funds almost 25 days ago. I then called hsbc, who agreed to drop / reverse the transaction on their end as it's been more than 30 days.
