car rental one way vs round trip

Does it cost more to rent out of one airport and drop at a different one? Planning on flying into Shannon and out of Dublin.

Not usually. You can price it on the car rental websites to make sure, but I've never been charged a drop fee between the two.

We have rented a car in Shannon and dropped off in Dublin without an additional fee, but that doesn't mean you'll be able to do it. It all depends on the car rental company and supply/demand.

I suggest you plug in your dates of travel in the websites for the car rental companies you are considering and see what rates they quote.

ok thanks May I ask what rental company you used? We are going in a busy time during the summer so may run into more issues.

I've probably used virtually all of them over the years, in every month of the year. Never had a drop fee between Shannon/Dublin.
