    *Covid-19 Update for Americans Traveling to Ireland*

    Currently, US citizens are allowed to travel to Ireland but are required to self-isolate for two weeks upon arrival. There are no restrictions on US flights to Ireland but the Irish government does recommend all non-essential travel be postponed. Despite the current availability of flights, Ireland warns international travelers that they should be prepared for "travel restrictions to be put into effect with little or no advance notice."

    Popular Questions About Renting a Car in Ireland

    How old do you need to be to rent a car in Ireland?

    To 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 car renters under 25 years old. This surcharge varies by supplier but can range between $10-$25 USD 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.

    Can I use my domestic driver's license to drive in Ireland?

    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 in Ireland. 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 $20, which is a mere fraction of what you may be fined should you be pulled over without an international driver's license on-hand.

    Contact Auto Europe for your Ireland RentalCan I drive my rental car into other countries?

    Cars rented in the Republic of Ireland can be taken to Northern Ireland free of charge as long as the renter does not hold a Northern Ireland drivers license. Cars rented in Ireland can travel to the United Kingdom for an additional fee, but cannot be taken to the European continent. Domestic one-way car rentals are available between select locations. The only international one-way rental available is to Belfast, Northern Ireland. Additional fees may apply and not all vehicles are available.
