If you’re thinking of visiting Ireland in the near future, then hire a car to see the countryside and make it the trip of a lifetime! Dublin city is a great starting point if you’re planning on exploring Ireland from behind the wheel. Read on for a few tips on how to pick up a cheap Dublin car hire deal.
Cheap Dublin car hire may be obtained by sticking to the following guidelines.
Book your Dublin car hire well in advance as the earlier you book it, the more likely you will get a cheap Dublin car hire deal.
If you travel at off peak times of the year, you’re likely to be quoted a cheap Dublin car hire rate as there is far less demand for cars at this time.
When you book your Dublin car hire with us, you’ll get a booking voucher stating the pick up point of your car hire and the car hire desk office hours. If you need to pick up the car hire outside the office hours, you might incur an additional ‘out of office hours’ fee, so it might be just cheaper to collect it the next day.
Booking your Dublin car hire with us saves you time and money – so watch out for special discounts and ‘price drop alerts’ that we offer from time to time. Plus it’s usually better value to book car hire for a long period of time, to say, a few days, especially in the off-peak season.
Another way to get a cheap Dublin car hire quote is to opt for a mini or economy car, as the smaller the car the less expensive it will be. Smaller cars will also cost you less in petrol and are ideal for the winding narrow Irish roads.
Planning your car rental is crucial to getting a cheap Dublin car hire deal. Like for example, what time are you arriving at Dublin airport? If early in the morning, then it’s a good idea to collect your car hire at the airport. If it’s late, you could get a taxi to your accommodation and pick up your Dublin car hire in the morning either in the city or at the airport.
If you exceed 24 hours with your drop off time then you’ll incur an extra days rental cost. For example if you pick up a car at 10am and return it at 11am the following day it will cost you 2 days car rental as you’ve exceeded 24hrs so it’s counted as 2 days car rental.
Choose a car hire that meets your needs. If you have a family in tow and lots of luggage then you’ll need extra space. But if it’s only a car for two people and you’re not going to be doing that much travelling then pick a smaller car hire. Only get additional features like GPS if you really need them.
If you pick up your Dublin car hire at the airport and return it to the same location, then you’ll avoid paying a one-way fee.
