Oct 2019

KAYAK

Cons:

I used my credit card’s insurance guarantee, but nowhere in the reservation did it say that to do do ALSO required a letter from my credit card company stating (1) that they cover the Republic of Ireland, (2) they will cover the lace loss if totaled, and (3) the last 4 numbers of my cc account. So at the Europcar desk I had to make that phone call, wade through a few phone trees, then talk to a couple of humans. I did get the letter (great service by my cc bank!) but I was lucky - that approval process may take up to 24 hours. The Europcar desk agent said this happens “quite a bit” with the brokers because you don’t provide the information about what each rental car company requires to use the cc insurance waiver benefits. I suggest adding a link to your process that will take your to the specific rental car company page for their CDW. I did use the link provided for my rental but it did not say I would have to get the letter etc.

Aug 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

The lines were really long with people complaining and not moving. The Payless personnel were in the same space as Budget and Avis and it was hard to tell the difference in who was working what. Eventually all personnel worked on the same long Payless line. Then the price of our car quadrupled.

Jun 2019

KAYAK

Cons:

The only thing that would be better is to have a map available in the car that shows more detail. The one we received wasn’t useful. Our cell phones drop service overseas so getting to our hotel and a phone sales location was difficult. Really not their responsibility, but nice nevertheless.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

Was told my total at booking was $120. After all the required ad ons and fees at pick up I paid over $500. Absolutely absurd and when I need a car for a week there’s nothing that can be done about it. Will never book with budget or Payless or this site again.

Nov 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Nice staff, didn't pressure upsell the insurance like I was worried about. Drop off in the city center was not as easy as expected, due to the lack of parking instructions. Value was outstanding.

Cons:

Need to provide clear instructions that if you are dropping off at the lower Drumconda location, there are no parking spots in front of the office. You need to pull into a bus lane and park there, which isn't ideal, but workable.

4.8 Okay

Pros:

Cons:

They try to rip you off on extra insurance. Concerned they’ve charged us extra. Have to keep an eye on what they actually charged. They did put a 5000€ hold on the card because we declined their insurance.

9.2 Excellent

Sep 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff when doing the paperwork to pick-up the car more helpful & friendly. Staff at the actual car pickup lot less helpful & one a bit dismissive when you asked questions. Staff when dropping off the car a bit unfriendly & seemed a bit irritable.

Cons:

If you are going to Ireland, do your homework about what your personal auto insurance will cover (call them & let them know where you are going) & also call your credit card company to see if they have primary or secondary insurance when renting the car because many credit card companies don't there

Mar 2020

Pros:

Staff were very helpful at Avis but the insurance fees were outrageous and tripled the cost of the rental. That being said, I cannot commend them enough for how they handled our return of the car early due to COVID-19

Cons:

Pros:

Extremely rude staff, particularly the woman working at the counter in Terminal 2 and the shuttle bus driver.

Cons:

Pros:

the second car was very good. they helped us at the airport which was a better location. However, the agent that helped us was less than helpful. it needed to be clearer that if you didn't take their insurance they were going to put 7500 euros on your credit card. he was unwilling to provide options. In comparison we dealt with another company in glascow and they provided good alternatives with reasonable costs. A much better experience.

Cons:

The first car they gave us was old and not in good working order. we returned it and got a much better, newer car that worked well.

Pros:

Mark was the BEST!! We were sold an insurance policy from a 3rd party that ended up being invalid in Ireland...we never would have known without Mark! He brought it to our attention, helped us confirm this fact with the 3rd party, and helped facilitate our refund with them. He then helped us get a a valid policy, and even upgraded our car to help ease our pain of the day ;) Would recommend!

Cons:

Dirty bathrooms with no toilet paper in men's OR women's bathrooms.

When I booked through Kayak for a car at 10 pm collected at airport, it recorded as 9am from the city depot. Sixt would not change it without rebooting the whole thing at twice the price. Kayak just referred me to Sixt. I had to change my inbound flight to arrive a day earlier at a cost of 400 euro rather than pay Sixt 700 euro more to rebook the car.

For first time renters, the drop off location should have been explicitly stated at the time of pick up, which would have been helpful.

Pros:

The car we eventually got kept working and did not break down - that is the only nice thing I can say.

Cons:

The fact we were left standing outside at night for over and hour waiting on the shuttle service, that we were given a smaller car than that booked, that there were loads of extra charges we could do nothing about was appalling! No sprinkler in the car so could not wash windows! Problems dropping off car - no one at the return location. Lost so much time was late for my flight. Like others, what appeared to be a good deal was really not one. I will never use this company again!

Pros:

nothing

Cons:

Can't find shuttle pick-up easily and it's far away. Shuttle is cramped. Poor customer service provided by the booking staff. Poorly defined conditions of sale -- not easily known that if not picking up car within 2 hours then sale is forfeited and no negotiation to change this. Flight delay lead to the rental agreement being voided and no other cars available. Very rude. Hearing other poeple that were returning cars, definitely recommend getting extra insurance coverage because they were changed a lot for a scratch that may have been there -- they don't do 'walk arounds' on the cars so you can't prove if damage has already been done. Would NOT recommend to anyone.

Pros:

Nothing really. The rental car pickup is not really "at" the airport. Dierctions to where their shuttle picks you up are non-existent. They tried to get us to rent a GPS, they brought out 3, none worked properly. Didn't take the GPS off the bill. The car was not advertised properly. Too small, sure it could "hold" six people, but forget luggage. Will never rent from them again.

Pros:

We were able to pick car off at location in Dublin and return it to the Dublin airport.

Cons:

When we booked car we were quoted $132 for the week. When we picked the car up we were told we had to take $500 in insurance. They told us you could deny it, but if you did they would place a hold on credit card for total cost of car

6.0 Good

Sep 2018

KAYAK

Cons:

My credit card covered rental insurance fully and Europcar asked for an email from my bank/credit card company before giving me the car. I had to call my credit card provider and have them send an email to Europcar. Pretty damn ridiculous. All told, I wasted three hours getting all this sorted, and even after I finally got them what they needed, they put a EURO 5,000 authorization charge on my account, an obscene amount for a one-week rental. Also: There's a 25 EURO airport surcharge that I was never made aware of, and a 35 EURO charge to travel into Northern Ireland, which I also wasn't made aware of until the time of payment. I recommend you book elsewhere, because a Google search tells me that not all car rental companies charge for traveling into Northern Ireland.

4.4 Okay

Jul 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was grey.

Cons:

Upon arrival in Dublin we were shuttled to an outside airport location. The quoted vehicle was not available, altho we had reserved it several months ahead. In fact they said Dublin NEVER carries that model (a 9 passenger van). So we were given a smaller (7 pax) vehicle which was way too small for our 6 adults to enjoy for a week. The quoted price was 1/4 of what they ended up charging. We had insurance but they would not accept it and required we pay the Europcar offered policy. We have rented in many other countries without all the insurance demands. We would never have booked with them if the initial quote had been correct as other vendors had just what we wanted. Europcar is a real RIPOFF.

Pros:

Agent at airport was very helpful.

Cons:

Insurance charges should be stated more clearly when booking. Insurance was nearly three times the price of the car. Car smelled like someone had been smoking in it.

The counter rep with whom we dealt with when we picked up the car, Grace, was very competent but friendly and helpful as well. The rep who went over the car with us was equally competent and friendly. Lastly, the rep we dealt with when we turned in the car, Dan, was also friendly and helpful. Your staff at Dublin were excellent and you should be proud of them.

Overall the experience was great and the lady at Europcar was lovely. The problem is that I’ve been charged a significant extra charge and am having trouble getting the bottom of it. Europecar are saying that we selected a paid upgrade but we were not told of any additional charges and thought that there would not be any additional charge. The upgrade was to a slight better car (with car charger so not exactly a big upgrade) Europcar are incredibly hard to get hold of but I spoke with someone on Friday and have had no further response. All we want is a refund for the additional amount they have charged. My email is: shelly@highlandsphotography.com.a I’d really appreciate your help, thank you

Expect to pay double what you originally book for - they’ll find a way to deny whatever insurance coverage you have so that you have to buy theirs

Staff try an rip you off and charge additional fees when you arrive. My guy told me that bringing the tank back empty would ‘save’ me money but only if it was less than 1/4 empty. Very unnerving.

Top tips for renting a car in Dublin

  • The best way to fully experience the joys of Dublin is by car. You will find renting a car is a much simpler way to get around Ireland’s capital city than relying on its hectic public transport system. Plus you benefit from having freedom to discover the best sights at your leisure. Naturally, you’ll want to visit the iconic Guinness Storehouse, which has free parking on nearby Crane Street. Or further afield, less than an hour’s drive outside the city, you’ll find the wonderful gardens of Powerscourt House in County Wicklow.
  • Less than 20 miles from the city center, Dublin Airport offers excellent opportunities for car hire. When you arrive at the Airport, finding the car hire desks could not be easier. If you’re arriving from a regional flight, you’ll find the hire desks in the Arrivals Hall at Terminal 1, or, if you’re on an international flight, you’ll arrive into Terminal 2 and go to the multi-story parking lot to book your hire car.
  • Firstly, you must remember that everyone drives on the left in Ireland and, as Dublin is a small city, you can expect to navigate much smaller roads. To get the best out of your driving experience in and around Dublin, stick to the main routes and avoid shortcuts, as you may get lost. The city is a rabbit warren of one-way and dead-end streets that can outfox even the most experienced drivers.
  • To save you from traffic jams and gridlock, always avoid the Dublin rush hour between 7:30 am and 9 am, and in the evenings around 6:30 pm. It’s also best not to drive near the Liffey River at these busy times. In the darker, winter months, be wary of fog and mist, which can affect driving conditions, as can the frost on higher routes.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Dublin for ₪205 or less
  • Book your rental car in Dublin at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Dublin are around 12% more expensive than airport locations on average
