There is no better way to see everything Dublin has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your National rental car. Don't waste time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. Having your own car allows you to go to the locations you want to see the most, when you want. Make your next getaway to Ireland more enjoyable with a National rental car.
With everything to do in and around Dublin, you'll want to take in more than the area surrounding your hotel while on your trip. Whether you are wishing to check out that new chophouse across town or try some of the local favorites, you'll want your own vehicle to explore as much as possible during your stay. No matter where you end up staying in Dublin, if you want to get the most out of your time in the city, having access to your vehicle is a must.
Founded by twenty-four independent rental car agents in 1947, National has grown from 60 locations in the U.S. to over 2,000 locations worldwide. National provides everything compact to SUVs, allowing you to pick the best car for your upcoming holiday.
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your car. But reserving your car ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Make sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
National's minimum age to rent a car in Dublin is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over National's policy to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Dublin. Economy or compact vehicles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Dublin trip can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
In Ireland you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Dublin. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Dublin. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to National. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Dublin definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Dublin.
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different National. However, there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Dublin, having the keys to your own car lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to explore more of Ireland, you can go when you like, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or memorizing a bus schedule.
Before your next business or leisure venture, book your National Dublin car rental and take off to all the must-do activities at your leisure. Go with CarRentals.com and speed along the open road in Dublin, Ireland.
