Renting a car in Ireland – Tips and advices

- You need a valid driving license from a EEA country to drive in Ireland (in case you’re UE citizen). Instead, there is no need to possess the International Driving Permit (IDP) to do so. 

- Bear in mind that vehicle full coverage insurance in Ireland does not cover tyres, wheels, mirrors and keys and glass loses, you’ll have to pay it in case of accident. 

- Be careful while putting the wrong fuel in the tank. The diesel in Ireland is dispensed with the black pump and green handle is just for the unleaded fuel. 

- Many car rental companies charge the airport tax (including Hertz and Budget) while hiring a car in Dublin Airport. Negotiate it so you can avoid paying this tax that is illegal since 2005 before contracting.

- Driving through Dublin can be really though since it isn’t designed for it. Signage is sometimes really poor and you can get easily lost if you don’t drive with GPS.
