Total flexibility

No restrictive contracts, so we are a real alternative to long term leasing or buying.

Adjustable fleet

We understand business dynamics so you can change your fleet size and mix as your business demands it.

Service and maintenance covered

All servicing and maintenance is included in our pricing, so that’s one less thing to worry about. We also cover road tax.

Rental terms

As needed, expand or decrease your fleet of cars or vans. No lengthy, onerous lease agreements. Just rolling monthly charges that are competitive. Only when you rent do you pay.

You can also change cars, vans or groups of vehicles at any stage, so you always have your strongest fleet on the road. We take care of the boring stuff like vehicle tax, servicing and maintenance — another reason why we’re the smart alternative to buying or long-term leasing.

We own the vehicle, but it’ll feel like yours with our customisation offers for long-term business rentals. We’ll help you stand out. We’ve partnered with hundreds of businesses over the last 30 years, so we know how to respond to your unique set of needs.

Treat a customisation project like it’s your own vehicle, and let us know how we can go the extra mile. Talk to us about shelving, dashcams, roof racks, tow bars, beacons, chevrons, rear cameras, and branded vehicles with your logos and signage. That personal touch goes a long way.

Debit cards will only be accepted if either (1) a credit card is also provided to cover the excess; or (2) the customer purchases our Super Collision Damage Waiver product, which reduces the excess to €250. Please refer to our Terms & Conditions.

Yes, you can check rates through our booking system before making a reservation. Your booking is only complete when you agree to the Terms & Conditions and click the 'Pay now' button.

You can easily compare prices and choose the one that best fits your budget. Booking in advance and being flexible with pick up and drop-off locations can help you secure better rates. Remember that demand, the season, and the length of your rental can all have an impact on costs.

Most of our basic rental fees include Collision Damage Waiver and Theft Waiver, which have an excess of between €1,500 and €2,500 depending on the vehicle category. For more information, please refer to the Excess Amounts and Coverages section in our Terms & Conditions.

Drivers must meet the requirement for licence eligibility. If the number of years is eight, this does not mean the driver must have held their licence for 8 years — they must have been eligible to hold their licence for eight years. This information is stated clearly in our Terms & Conditions.

Choosing a vehicle should be done with consideration for your own requirements, the number of passengers, and the kind of trip you expect to drive while in Ireland.

When you arrive at the CARHIRE desk (operated by Europcar), we will ask you to provide a valid unendorsed driving licence issued by your country of residence, and a payment card in the name of the main driver. If your licence is issued in the UK, you must provide the ‘Share Driving Licence’ information, which you can obtain by visiting gov.uk/view-driving-licence.

Non-EU/EEA driving licences cannot be accepted if the holder has been resident in Ireland for more than 12 months. Holders of UK, US, Canadian, Australian and all EU member states are not required to supply an International Driving Permit (IDP).

If an International Driving Permit is required, it must be accompanied by the driver’s original domestic licence and photo ID or national identity card. If you are using a prepaid voucher (with a specified value or that says group and days apply'), you must also present a credit card for your deposit and charges that have not been prepaid.

If cancelling more than 48 hours before the pick up date and time, you will get a full refund.
There is free changes to your booking 4 hours before pick up.
