    • I received prompt, professional, courteous, and friendly service when I started my rental and also when I brought it back. The whole ex...perience went smoothly. The car performed as expected. And the rates charged were fair with no surprises.

    • Being able to secure the rental at a good rate from the US was a definite plus. Paying in dollars was also a straightforward way to the price ahead of time. The rental process went off without a hitch upon arrival in Ireland. Sixt has very good cars and very good staff. The only downside of the process of going through Auto Europe was when I thought I would extend the rental for additional days. It required I go to the Dublin Airport, go through the return process, and actually rehire the car. No part of this could be done over the phone or online. Also, the rate was much higher because the best rate I could get was the Sixt online rate and this is a very busy season for car rental in Ireland. I ended up returning the car.

Supplemental car rental insurance in Ireland is available from Auto Europe at a discount if booked in advance of your trip. Popular optional coverage includes Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and theft protection (TP). In most cases CDW and TP insurance with a zero-deductible from Auto Europe is more affordable than CDW and TP insurance with a deductible purchased at the rental counter at pick-up.

    Car Rental Age Requirements in Ireland

    Car Rental in IrelandTo rent a car in Ireland you must be at least 21 years old and have held your license for a minimum of 2 years. Most rental car companies will enforce a young driver surcharge for renters under 25 years old. This surcharge varies by supplier but can range between €8-€22 per day.

    In addition to the minimum age requirement, many suppliers in Ireland have a maximum age requirement of 70 years old. Travelers over the age of 70 looking to rent a car in Ireland may be required to present documentation from a doctor or their current insurance company stating they have not been in an accident in the past 5 years. Some suppliers can be very strict in regard to age requirements, check with your Auto Europe reservations agent at 1-888-223-5555 to ensure there are no surprises at the rental counter if you fall into one of these age ranges.

    Ireland Rental Car License Requirements

    Similar to many European countries, travelers from the United States and Canada can pick up a car in Ireland and drive off the lot with a domestic driver's license in good standing. That being said, it is highly encouraged that all travelers acquire an international driver's license. While you may not be legally required to possess one, you may receive a fine if you're pulled over without an IDP. These can be purchased from your local AAA branch for only $15, which is a mere fraction of what you may be fined should you be pulled over without an international driver's license on-hand.
