Useful Information

1. Drivers Licence

To drive the rental vehicles, drivers must be in possession of a full, unendorsed driving licence. Licences must be produced at the CARHIRE location at the time of collection. Drivers must be in possession of their licence at all times when driving the vehicle. Certain minor endorsements may be accepted – please check with the supplier before making a booking. Licences must be from the country of permanent residence. NON-EU/EEA driving licences cannot be accepted if the holder has been a resident in Ireland for more than 12 months.

Holders of US, Canadian, Australian and all EU member states are not required to supply an International Driving Permit (IDP). International Driving Permits where required, must be accompanied by the original domestic licence of the driver. This is clearly stated on the international permit. An International permit presented without the domestic licence, will not be accepted.

2. Drivers Age

At the commencement of rentals, main drivers must meet the requirements for licence eligibility:

For Mini, Compact, Economy, Intermediate and Estate car classes, drivers must have been eligible to hold a driving licence for 9 years.

For Full size, Standard or Passenger Vans or Premium car classes, drivers must have been eligible to hold a driving licence for 12 years.

5. Cross Border

Should you wish to drive in Northern Ireland it is a requirement of rental that they inform the supplier that they wish to do so prior to leaving the rental location. There is a 34.05 Euro fee when taking a car into Northern Ireland.

Cars cannot be taken off the island of Ireland at any stage and must be returned in the Republic. Failure to purchase the required coverage will result in the renter accepting full responsibility for any recovery fees, should the car breakdown.
