Ireland - Car models and reference cost of rent

A viable car, a massive 4x4, or a hasty hatchback, choose the car you need to calculate the rental cost.

Try also to choose different rental points; practice shows that the price for the same car may differ by 20 - 30% depending on where you are planning to pick it up.

Available payment options

You may pay for your booking using MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, and American Express.

IMPORTANT. It often happens that at the moment of receiving the car receipt, you may be requested to provide your personal credit card. To find out in advance which card you need, carefully read the Payment Methods section in the document with rental terms.



You have read the terms and found out that the credit card is really needed, but you do not have it? Before you do anything, check the type of your current debit card on www.bindb.com. Some banks issue credit cards as debit cards with zero limit. If your card is one on them, you are very lucky. It is also suitable for booking.

Speed limitations

All the rumours that travelling across Ireland by car are over exaggerated. Of course, there are difficulties with parking, but everything is solvable, moreover, the quality of the road surface is excellent. Plus there are minor traffic jams, and quite reasonable speed limits. Particularities:

In addition, do not forget to follow up-to-date information on the allowed speed limits on road signs; it may slightly differ from th information indicated in the table.

Traffic violation fines

In Ireland, as well as in other European cities, adherence of traffic rules is strictly monitored, and punishments are rigorously enforced. Follow the speed limits and traffic rules, do not drink at the wheel, and most likely, a meeting with the road patrol service staff will be a threatening one. There is also a chance to get fined in everyday life. We have collected the most common situations you should beware of:


It is important to remember two things. The first one is that you are visiting the city and its inhabitants, and on a visit, you should stick to the house rules. Therefore, even if a requirement seems irrational to you, stick to it. Therefore, you will save time and money and keep your reputation. The second one is that not all violations are resolved by fines. Some offences are considered so serious that their outcome is determined by the court. Getting into a confrontation in a foreign city during your own vacation is not a good idea.

Cancellation and modification of order

You may cancel your order via a special form on the website. Standard cancellation conditions are as follows: free cancellation of order 24 hours before the start of booking. Upon cancellation less than 24 hours, the fine of 50 EUR will be charged. After the date of receipt of a car, the order cannot be cancelled. If a customer does not arrive at the place for renting a car and does not inform Cars-scanner.co.uk about cancellation of the booking, 100% of the order value is withheld. Additionally, in some proposals, cancellation charges may be changed. Be sure to pay attention to the relevant clause in the rental terms.

How to get an additional discount in Ireland

By booking a car in advance, you are guaranteed to get the car at the fixed current price. In this case, you may cancel/alternate the order free of charge 24 hours before the start of the rental time, without any penalties.

Our customers may use current discounts and special offers. We constantly conduct joint deals with many rental companies in Vienna. You can get the best conditions when booking a car in advance (2-4 months before the start of the rental time within normal periods, and 3-6 months before the high season). Discounts in such cases may reach up to 80%. In some cases, it is possible to rent a car at a super price of £ 1 per day.


Toll roads in Ireland

There are several toll roads in Ireland. It is convenient and inexpensive to use them. Pay by cash or card.

Age restrictions for car rental in Ireland

Please note that drivers under 25 and over 70 are often less trusted at the provider's office and are subject to an extra payment when renting. Visit the Age Restrictions section to find out how a driver of your age group is charged when booking.

Return in other city or country

To find out the possibility and cost of returning a rented car in another city, check the box "return to another place" and search for options. In the search results, only those rental companies will be displayed that allow you to return cars to another location. The price indicated on our website already includes the one-way tariff.

Get insured and enjoy tour travel

To ensure your rental is the most comfortable, we always recommend a full insurance policy. You may do this either on our website or directly at the rental company office.

Carefully read the terms and conditions; there should be a complete list of all occurrences clearly written in the Insurance Cover section.
