Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best deals on a Shannon National car rental?
We try to get you the best price, whether you book. But getting well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Shannon?
You will need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Shannon's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Shannon set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Take time to review National's policies, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Shannon?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Shannon. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, 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 little extravagance on their getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Ireland?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from National in Ireland. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs.

Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National requires a deposit when you book your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Shannon?
Shannon certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Shannon National offer one-way car rentals?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
