Very kind staff. Fast pick up and Return of the rental-car. The explanation where the shuttle picks up the people could be also send by mail with a map since there are two Stops at Terminal 1/2. We hope the rental-cars will be one day affordable for all people again ..it got really expansive the last years.( esp. during Corona. Thank you so much for Everything.

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.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.

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.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

Pickup and drop off was easy.This company essentially forces you to purchase full insurance. We traveled to Ireland and rented a car for a few days. I put the rental car on my credit card, and they explained to me that if you don’t buy insurance they will put a 5,000€ hold on my card if I don’t buy insurance.

Booking was easy, but avis forced me to either take insurance, or leave a 2000€ deposit which is steep, especially considering that my booking came with theft and collision damage waiver insurance.

The insurance scam is always an issue, either your have thousands of euro to deposit, or you have to pay more than double the cost of rental to buy unnecessary insurance. When a website sells you a service for 130 € , you expect to pay that, not 470€. Avis would not even accept a credit card from another member of my family because it wasn't the same name. I'd hate to work in these places as the employees must know they are scamming people.

There are much cheaper car rentals Dublin. We rented for a week from another company and needed to add an extra day which they could not accommodate so we did a one day rental with Avis. The male counter person convinced me that it would cost me $39. NOT to have insurance vs $44. To have it. I wanted self insurance but he was insistent to upsell. The cost for a small car for the day was $160. Ridiculous. After researching our previous company we reserved with we realized their reviews were horrid and so we rented a week with Avis. When we got the vehicle at the Dublin airport there was no mention in the car documents ( detailed previous damage discriptions) of a missing front hubcap. For the remainder of the trip, tried to replace it along our route to avoid the replacement cost. Had this been included in the description, we would have been spared significant effort. We did get pressure again at the rental counter in Dublin to add $28. per day of additional insurance but the agent relented when I was adamant. Avis , stop this pressure to buy additional coverage and please be correct and up to date in the damage list you supply with the car at rental. I will say the car was a good one and our second agent was polite and efficient. Also it needs to be made very clear to renters that the car does not get returned ed to the rental location but to the terminal 2 parking garage.
1.9 Horrible14 Sep 2021
Get off the plane after a 7 hour flight and get a rude attendant telling me the insurance that I had in place did not cover the car. He did his whole speech about always booking on their website to get the right insurance and that you can not book on any other site. It was awful. I had a 4 hour drive ahead of me and wanted to get out of the airport. Ruse and nasty people in Dublin Airport at AVIS and Budget rental. I don't know if true but one person told me that they get a commission on the insurance and that they always tell you that you need the most expensive option and don't back down.

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.

Insurance madnessMy 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.

Rental Quote and Actual Price and Car NOT THE SAMEThe car was grey.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.

No any insuranceI. Didn't like anything.The booking made on kayak did not include any basic insurance, absolutely nothing, which is illegal. That's why kayak gave me low price. So when i arrived to the airport i was told that i didn't have any insurance. So they cancelled the booking and offered me a car for the same price but with insurance. I will never ever again use kayak and i will strongly recommend never to use it.

The MANDATORY insurance fees are absolutely ridiculous. On-wed scammed into thinking that the car rental fee was $4 per day and the insurance cost, which I booked online was another $30 per day. When I arrived, they forced me to pay all insurances or leave a $1,500 deposit, which I wasn't prepared for. The also require me to purchase the full tank of gas, which was 107 Euro, but said it would be refunded upon return if the tank was full. According to the quote thru Budget/Kayak, at the time of booking, it should have cost me approx 250USD. It ended up costing me over 800USD. I returned the car clean, full of fuel, and not a single scratch. I will NEVER rent thru Budget again, neither overseas or domestically!

Also kayak advertised the car we reserved as $100’dollars for the week and that was not what we were told at time of arrival they said it was $400 and we had to ultimately pay $600 up front. This is the last time I will book a car thru kayak.

First time renting outside of the USAEasy pick up and drop off and the staff was friendly. They patiently waited while we contacted our CC cards ref the insurance coverage.We had requested an automatic, but Europecar could not find our upgrade request, so we got stuck with what was available which was a BMW. In their defence, we never got a confirmation for our upgrade request, so it might not have been their fault. Our big mistake was not verifying with our credit cards that insurance would be covered. Our AX, MC and Visa did not provide insurance in Ireland, so we had to buy EuropCars insurance and it's not cheap. The total cost of 3 week rental of a BMW X1 SUV diesel was $1400 pounds. Do your homework and if you have a written agreed upon price make the rental company stick to it.

The car was great, no complaints there. However, pickup was not at the airport as listed, and we needed to take a shuttle bus to another location to get the vehicle - not a big deal but not as advertised. Furthermore, when attempting to return the vehicle we found a sign saying the return location was yet somewhere else! And from there we'd have to walk (not that far) to the terminal. Again, not a huge deal but very inconvenient for scheduling departure and arrival plans. And having 2nd party insurance was much cheaper than accepting the Hertz insurance that was pushed. Overall good experience, in the end.

Pickup counter service was fast. Auto tire light was on when car was received, I ended up adding air to the front passenger tire and I thought all was good. Two days later the same tire went flat while driving, I pulled over immediately and put the spare tire on. Took the flat tire to a tire shop and they removed a nail and were able to patch. When I returned the car, Hertz charged me for a new tire. The person who checked me out spoke broken English so I decided to not push back much at that time and will discuss with Hertz when I arrive back home. Hopefully Hertz will reimburse me for the tire cost.

Before booking you need to make it clear to people, that they can avoid a large excess by paying for insurance and you need to do this in advance. You also need to confirm that your office is not on site and give instructions in advance on how people get to your office. You need to resolve your phone connections because sometimes the number that you are expected to call does not work.

I recommend getting taxi from airport to pick up car as the shuttle they send could take long or is hard to find and spot. The drive there is very short. If you miss your connecting flight and are more than 2 hours from pick up time they will rent your car to someone else. This happened to me I called and let them know but our car was rented out. They were kind enough to find us another car but it was manual not automatic. The car they gave us cost more and had adblue. I never heard of adblue and had no idea how it worked and it was not filled up as it should have been. The car also had scratches and was not clean. The diesel was only a quarter tank. When I drove it the adblue warning lights were going off telling me the car would not start after a certain number of kilometers. This was stressful. These alarms continued for over a week. I called customer service which were easy to reach. They suggested going to a dealer to have the adblue reset (I bought adblue myself and refilled it but it did not help). No dealer would reset my adblue so easirent drove out to me and swapped with a petrol (not diesel) car which was a great car. The rest of my experience was great. It should be noted that the time I rented this car was a time post covid and high inflation started that renting cars was very expensive. For 2 months my bill was $5300. This sounds expensive but compared to other estimates from other rentals ... If any were available were between $8000 and $12000. So I feel kayak gave me a great deal.

Because my flight from Chicago was delayed 14 hours, Easirent Dublin would not hold the car that I had reserved a month earlier and was being held with my credit card. I reserved the car through Priceline.com. When the car was canceled I immediately called Easirent Dublin to reserve a new vehicle and they said they had no vehicles to rent! I will not use Priceline or Easirent again and I will not recommend either.

Staff Very Customer Service OrientedThe staff was responsive to my needs and very helpful. Make sure you consider insurance and GPS needs prior to arriving. You should get both if you don't have adequate coverage from your personal insurance company...or have a GPS option. Also, do not get a manual shift. It's challenging enough to drive with an automatic. It is preferred to get a diesel vehicle as 70% of the cars in Ireland are diesel. The roads are narrow...get a "small" car!! Over all it was a positive experience and I will use Enterprise again when in Dublin.Transfer from the airport to the car lot is confusing. Make sure to clarify how to get transported to the car lot.

1.9 Horrible26 Sep 2021
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.

Mid size cars (Skoda Fabia not Astra)I rent an Astra with ar conditioning. Thrifity gave me a Skoda Fabia without AC. At the desk rental the attendant has confirmed that the car size for this rental is Fabia and there was no AC. The car got a flat tyre during the trip.Car type is not Astra as advertised, is a Skoda Fabia, very short on accessories.

The drop off was very efficientIt took quite a few minutes at pick up; not sure if they weren't expecting as many customers at that time or just didn't have enough staff. Took about 30 mins to get our car.
