Why book with us?When organising your plans and itinerary for a business or leisure trip, the last thing you want to worry about is car hire pick-up from Dublin Airport. It’s a very busy city, so you want the whole process to be as easy as possible. Booking in advance with us, using our advanced technology, guarantees peace of mind. And there are many bargains and special deals to be had.
You can use the online pre-pay facility or pay on arrival at the airport, then just collect your keys from one of the various depots within the terminal. Or take a shuttle to your vehicle – all of this will have been sorted when you make your booking. Our filtering system allows you to choose by fleet, passenger number or availability. This means you know exactly what you’re getting when you land on the Emerald Isle.
Dublin - a European hot-spot for tourismServicing domestic and international flights, Dublin Airport had more than 20 million passengers in 2013, indicating just how much of the tourism dollar Ireland attracts. There are two terminals, with airlines such as British Airways, Emirates and Lufthansa all in operation.
The airport itself is relatively easy to negotiate, with a number of car rental depots at Terminal 1. These include Hertz, Budget, Europcar and the domestic Dooley Car Rentals. Your airport pick-up relates to the aeroplane icon when you book your vehicle. If it says ‘On Airport’, your collection is simple. Otherwise it may say Shuttle, which can be a less expensive option, as you have to make a short trip to collect.
Arriving in a new country is never easy, so here are some handy tips for driving your car rental in Dublin:
- Just like New Zealand and the UK, you drive on the left-hand side of the road.
- If you do travel into the rural areas of Ireland, petrol stations can be sparse. Always make sure you have enough fuel to travel.
- Don’t get out by toll roads, such as on the M50 motorway. Check with your hire company to avoid an unwanted fine.
- The Irish weather can turn very nasty on occasion. Be aware that heavy rain can strike at pretty much any time.
- Certain Pedestrian and Residential Zones have a speed limit of 30kp/h. Observe the road signs carefully.
