Popular Questions About Renting a Car in Ireland

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.
