Hello Everyone :)
I've been searching the forums, reading everything I can about rental cars. I've also been on all the rental car websites I can find, in hopes of trying to figure out how much I truly can expect to pay for a rental car. I would like to get a credit card that covers the insurance, but it seems that can be very tricky.
For everyone who has rented a car in Ireland, I would love to hear your advice, tips and tricks, at affording a car. I will be in Ireland for 13 days, but plan to have the car for 11 days. We are staying in city center area. Is it worth the expense to take the bus back to the Dublin airport to rent the car, or should we just get it from the city center location? We will be dropping it off in Shannon. Would you say reserving beforehand is a must? We need an automatic, I'm considering not renting the GPS, so as to save money.
At this point it looks like the basic fee to rent the car is at least 367 Euro, ($500) and that doesn't seem to include the super CDW insurance I keep reading about. And then there is gas! If you have insight into how much the car actually costed you, when all was said and done, that would be wonderful.
Thank you so much in advance, and I look forward this discussion :)
