FAQ Overview
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for your rental car is mainly made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by the main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. Please note that the main driver must present a valid credit card issued in their name. Furthermore, the main and additional drivers must be in possession of a valid driving license for at least 1 year (for further information, please refer to the rental conditions). Moreover, both, the main and additional drivers are required to present a valid identity card/passport and must be of the minimum age specified in the rental conditions.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of delay. As a general rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver must present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driver's license and their valid credit card.

Dublin Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Dublin

Car Rental in Dublin

Dublin is a fantastic tourist destination and starting point for any trip in the Republic of Ireland. Many people dream of visiting the Emerald Isle, whether to rediscover their family heritage, look at the beautiful landscapes, or just enjoy an authentic pint of black beer! The country is steeped in history and there are plenty of things to see and to do. The best way to see it all is with a rental car in Dublin. Read on to learn about the sights you can see when you rent a car in Dublin.

Great tourist destinations in Dublin

Dublin is the capital of the Republic of Ireland and is teeming with Irish culture. Rental cars in Dublin are a great way of getting around and seeing all the different sights. You can find cheap car rentals at the Dublin airport DUB and cheap car rentals from Cork airport ORK.

The Guinness Storehouse (sometimes called factory) is one of Dublin's most famous sights, and with good reason. Take a guided tour to experience it for yourself. See how one of the world's most famous stouts is made and pour one yourself at the end! It also features great scenic views across Dublin.

Dublin also has a great selection of parks and gardens to visit. Some of these, like Phoenix Park, feature wild deer running around inside. They're a great attraction for both kids and adults and easy to get to with a Dublin car rental. Phoenix Park is particularly popular with youngsters, as you'll find the Dublin Zoo inside, one of the city's top family destinations.

Tip

Dublin has a lively nightlife, with plenty of clubs, bars and pubs. Take a trip to Grafton Street and prepare for an epic pub crawl. There are plenty of quality pubs and bars all within walking distance. Either head to Temple Bar, the city's most famous zone for pubs, or go in the opposite direction; at the top of Grafton Street, you'll find Harcourt Street, where the younger crowd go to dance the night away.

What historical attractions are there?

Ireland has a storied history, with a lot of strife and struggle. Using car hire in Dublin is a great way of getting about and seeing it all. Many of Ireland's great historical attractions are outside of Dublin city. Fortunately, the small size of the country means that you can easily reach these by road.

Without leaving the city, you can visit the beautiful Dublin Castle. It was built in the 13th century and is still used today by the government. It's a fantastic tourist attraction and not just for history buffs. Public events like orchestras, art galleries, exhibitions and more are regularly on offer at Dublin Castle.

Enjoy live music in Dublin

As you might imagine from a city with a lively nightlife, there is also plenty of music. Temple Bar is probably one of the most famous fusions of drinking and live music. Many of the pubs in this quaint cobblestoned district feature traditional live Irish music seven days a week. It also has a fantastic selection of Irish whiskeys and beers on offer.

Those who like to move to music will enjoy the Irish Dance Party. Learn how to do the river dance and plenty more with fun lessons. It's easy to get to with Dublin car hire fortunately, as you'll be too tired to walk afterwards.

What transport options are available?

It's highly advisable to find cheap car hire in Dublin, as Ireland's public transport options are limited. Train lines are few and most people travel by bus or car. Low cost car hire in Dublin makes it easy and affordable to get around without relying on public transport.

Are day trips outside of Dublin a good idea?

With cheap car rentals in Dublin, it's possible to visit virtually anywhere in Ireland inside a day. The Republic of Ireland is relatively small and very car friendly. Car rentals in Dublin are a great launchpad for trips anywhere in Ireland.

When should you book a rental car?

For the best car rental in Dublin, it pays to book ahead. You can get the absolute best and cheapest rates, as well as a selection of cars. Of course, you can still get great car rentals at the airport when you land.

Can I drive to Northern Ireland?

The border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland is friendly to drivers. If your visa allows you to cross, day trips are possible. Always check before you travel. In both countries, they drive on the left-hand side of the road.
