Is insurance required to rent a car in Limerick?
Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy interim insurance through the rental car company. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout. Although many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some insurance, there may be restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check rental car supplier's policy before you decide.
What are the different fuel policies?
Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Here is a list of the typical policies.You will need to find a gas station near the drop-off location
|Policy Type||Policy Description||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Full to Full||The tank will be full when you collect your car. Use as much gas as you like and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off when you are done. As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only pay for the fuel you use. Used a quarter of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full. You won't need to pay for any you didn't use. You can shop around for the cheapest prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank|
|Full to empty (pre-paid)||You'll pick up the car with a full tank of gas and return the car with an empty tank. Many rental car companies offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to verify with them beforehand||You won't need to find a gas station near your rental drop-off location||You usually pay more for a tank upfront then going to a local station|
|Empty to empty||You will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up the vehicle, and you won't have to refill the gas when you bring the car back||You refill your tank yourself, so you won't pay more than local pump prices||You'll need to find a gas station shortly after you get the car|
What type of fuel policy should I choose?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Limerick?
Unlimited miles is a good option if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Limerick. You can drive wherever you like and not incur extra charges. Make sure to read your rental agreement to discover if there are mileage restrictions.
Know before you go
Before you begin on your Limerick vacation, go over a few items before you leave the car rental lot. You should take time to:
- Check out your vehicle and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on your paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new area
