There is no better way to see everything Galway has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Hertz rental car.

With all there is to do and see in and around Galway, you'll want to explore more than your hotel room during your visit. Whether you have to have dinner at that well-reviewed restaurant across town or see some of the local hot spots, you'll want your own car to take in as much as possible while on your vacation. Wherever you drive to in Galway, if you wish to get the most from your trip Ireland, having access to your own set of wheels is a must.

CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, getting your car well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Galway is 23. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Hertz's policies to know what the total cost is before you book.
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Galway. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Galway getaway can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Hertz in Ireland. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Galway. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz requires a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
We encourage a full to full policy. You should receive your vehicle with the needle at "F". However, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Hertz. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Galway certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Galway.
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different location. However, there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Galway, having your own ride lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to check out more of Ireland, you can drive wherever you like, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or memorizing a bus schedule.
