Renting a Car -- Information --

Jump to last reply

It is coming to that time of year when the annual RCC (Rental Car Complaints) come Thick and Fast, Just about every rental company in Ireland has been condemned as being the worst ever. Irish car rental is condemned as being the worst in the world.

Once more almost every complaint is from people who have cut corners, used Agents/3rd parties rather than going direct to the end supplier. or a direct link to the end supplier.

I am not going to recommend who to rent with or not. I am going to recommend people go direct to the Provider of the car. Read the Forums, amongst the numerous complaints there are what should be blatantly obvious points, some of the Insurance issues, the fact that you might not get the exact same model you assume. the list is endless.

This post is a warning to make yourselves aware, Know the full details of what you pay At The Desk including "Holds" and Fuel Policy. Knowing what you are getting is a huge lump towards satisfaction. As is the warning that 200 people get off a flight, 50 might want rental cars, there will be a queue..

If you are not sure Ask---before you get to the collections desk.
