Top tips for hiring a car at Knock Intl airport

  • If you’re looking at car hire at Knock Intl Airport, then you’ll find that this is the best option to get around the local area and explore the stunning coastline of western Ireland. The airport is linked to the N17 road that allows you to travel north towards Sligo, around a 50min drive away and south towards Galway, which is about 56 miles from the airport.
  • It’s important to keep in mind that companies that offer car hire at Knock Intl Airport may have differing policies regarding the return of your car. To avoid any unnecessary stress, it is highly recommended you carefully read the company’s policy prior to booking your vehicle, especially if you’re planning to return it outside of office hours. For instance, at Knock Airport, Hertz office hours range from around 08:00–21:00 on Mondays, but only from 08:00 to 18:00 Tuesday to Saturday. So, be mindful that a charge may apply if you intend to return the car before opening hours or after closing hours. If you rent through Budget, you will also need to contact them to request an out-of-hours return, which is subject to availability.
  • For Knock Intl Airport car hire, there are various additional services that you can take advantage of from each car hire company at the airport. For example, if you’re travelling with young children all companies can provide a child booster seat, as well as seats for babies, at an extra cost. This can also be the case for satellite navigation systems to help you get around without getting lost. Should you want to add another driver to the rental agreement, this can also be done upon booking. Avis and Budget also offer a Roadside Assistance Plus service, should you get locked out of the car or experience a flat tyre, among other inconveniences.
  • Renting a car at Knock Intl Airport has its advantages over using local public transport links that include bus and train services. Due to its remote location, the region’s local transport services are not regular or well-connected enough to avoid extended waiting times. Some trains run regularly but you are likely to have to transfer at different stations to get to several destinations in the area. So, to avoid any hassle relying on public transport timetables, a rental car will save you a lot of time and allow you to explore the local area with more freedom and ease.
  • Book your car hire at Knock Intl airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

The car wasn’t very comfortable in the back seat, felt every bump on the country roads The staff were very nice and efficient Would hire from Budget/Avis again at Knock David ,John and the team were very good and helpful

I was ripped off because I had to pay far more than stated in my booking. I still don't know where the hidden costs come from and the friendly Avis-lady couldn't tell me either - and I tried contacting Priceline but there is no way you can file a complaint or reach anyone. I tried online but I guess it wasn't even read by anyone. This was the worst travel or booking experience ever. I will never ever again book anything via Priceline and Kayak!!! If anybody reads this: I am still waiting for someone to explain the extra-costs!!!
