    Our Top Tips for Renting a Car in Galway

    1. Reserve an Automatic vehicle if possible, as all cars in Ireland are right-side drive, and shifting gears with your opposite hand can quickly become confusing for North American travelers.
    2. Choose fully comprehensive insurance for your Galway rental car. Unlike most European countries, Ireland has specific requirements for credit card insurance coverage, and not all major credit cards are accepted. Avoid the hassle and rent a car in Galway with pre-purchased comprehensive insurance.
    3. Book ahead of time for maximum savings. As the tourism high-season approaches during the summer, Galway auto rental rates increase exponentially. Avoid paying exorbitant rental costs, and book your rental car early. With Auto Europe's best rate guarantee, you're sure to receive the best car rental rate, no matter how early you book.
