Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Galway National car rental at a great price?

What should I have with me when I pick up my car rental in Galway?
Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Galway?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Galway is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to review National's policy to find out what the total cost is for you.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Galway?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Galway. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Galway getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Ireland?
In Ireland you do need to have insurance before you rent from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
National requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Galway. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Galway certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Galway.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different location. However, there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
