Approximate prices for rental of popular models of cars

A viable car, a massive 4x4, or a hasty hatchback, choose the car you need to calculate the rental cost.

Try also to choose different rental points; practice shows that the price for the same car may differ by 20 - 30% depending on where you are planning to pick it up.

Payment method

MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, and American Express cards are accepted for booking payments.
PLEASE NOTE that some rental points accept credit cards only. In order not to find out about this at the time when you receive the car, carefully read the Payment Methods section before travelling.

Deposit and credit card information

If a provider does indicate the need to provide a credit card when booking, and you do not have it, check the status of your debit card on www.bindb.com. The fact is that some debit cards are actually credit cards with zero limit. If your card is one of them, you may use it.

Speed limitations

All the rumours that travelling across Ireland by car are over exaggerated. Of course, there are difficulties with parking, but everything is solvable, moreover, the quality of the road surface is excellent. Plus there are minor traffic jams, and quite reasonable speed limits. Particularities:

In addition, do not forget to follow up-to-date information on the allowed speed limits on road signs; it may slightly differ from th information indicated in the table.

Traffic violation fines

In Ireland, as well as in other European cities, adherence of traffic rules is strictly monitored, and punishments are rigorously enforced. Follow the speed limits and traffic rules, do not drink at the wheel, and most likely, a meeting with the road patrol service staff will be a threatening one. There is also a chance to get fined in everyday life. We have collected the most common situations you should beware of:


It is important to remember two things. The first one is that you are visiting the city and its inhabitants, and on a visit, you should stick to the house rules. Therefore, even if a requirement seems irrational to you, stick to it. Therefore, you will save time and money and keep your reputation. The second one is that not all violations are resolved by fines. Some offences are considered so serious that their outcome is determined by the court. Getting into a confrontation in a foreign city during your own vacation is not a good idea.

Cancellation and modification of order without penalties within 24 hours

You may find the cancellation form on our website. Standard conditions provides the following cancellation rules:

Please note that some special offers may change the cancellation policy; carefully read the terms and conditions to plan your vacation well.

How to get an additional discount in Ireland

By booking a car in advance, you are guaranteed to get the car at the fixed current price. In this case, you may cancel/alternate the order free of charge 24 hours before the start of the rental time, without any penalties.

Our customers may use current discounts and special offers. We constantly conduct joint deals with many rental companies in Vienna. You can get the best conditions when booking a car in advance (2-4 months before the start of the rental time within normal periods, and 3-6 months before the high season). Discounts in such cases may reach up to 80%. In some cases, it is possible to rent a car at a super price of £ 1 per day.


Toll roads in Ireland

There are several toll roads in Ireland. It is convenient and inexpensive to use them. Pay by cash or card.

Age restrictions

Please note that drivers under 25 and over 70 are often less trusted at the provider's office and are subject to an extra payment when renting. Visit the Age Restrictions section to find out how a driver of your age group is charged when booking.

Extra charge for car return in other city

To find out the possibility and cost of returning a rented car in another city, check the box "return to another place" and search for options. In the search results, only those rental companies will be displayed that allow you to return cars to another location. The price indicated on our website already includes the one-way tariff.

Insurance, nuances and recommendations

To ensure your rental is the most comfortable, we always recommend a full insurance policy. You may do this either on our website or directly at the rental company office.

Carefully read the terms and conditions; there should be a complete list of all occurrences clearly written in the Insurance Cover section.

Together with friends we traveled along the roads of the Netherlands. Since there were 7 of us, we rented a minivan for 7 seats and went to have fun. We rented the van via this resource and it was convenient for us, as all options were already included in the cost, and there was no need to pay extra charges. In general, the cost was ridiculous for 7 people. The site is simple, understandable and reliable.
