Hello CorkGirlEire,

Welcome to the Holiday Travel Forum.

This search 'lastminute.com car rental' turns up a few hits on the Tripadvisor main home page Search Box (see link)

http://www.tripadvisor.com/Search?q=lastminute.com+car+rental&sub-search=SEARCH&geo=1&pid=3826&returnTo=__2F__

Unfortunately, not much seems to be exactly what you are looking for and others are quite old. You might want to also try a google search to see if there are other reviews/reports outside of the TA community.

Hopefully someone will spot your post here and answer you.

Good luck with your research.

I personally haven't hired a car through Lastminute.com

Whilst they have been reasonably reputable for accommodation, they have not been in the forefront of the rental car industry from my understanding. I'm sure there are numerous discounted rental companies available, but with so many complexities involved in car rental - such as insurance and excess payments, the general consensus for reputable car rentals is usually the majors; Hertz, Avis, Budget. Some of the once considered 'second tier' such as Europcar and Thrify have also grown in stature over the years, and come quite well recommended.

One very important advice - be sure to try make every effort to book online in your home country prior to travel. The benefits of which include all quotes in your local currency, and often they have discounts or inclusion you would not get from the same company abroad. It also enables you to have sufficient time to read over all the T&C and insurance components carefully before collecting your car - something that doesn't make for great reading after a lengthy flight (if applicable).
