I would like to warn anyone hiring a car from Dublin Airport
I booked a rental online with Argus car hire. At the same time, the website offered collision damage waiver insurance through Allianz insurance, so took this option as well.
BEWARE. When I got to the Dublin airport pickup point, I found I was booked through National/Europcar. I produced all of my documents and the extra insurance document. The very rude lady said the insurance was not enough, and I would have to pay a further €15 per day collision damage waiver, for 4 days or I could not have the car. My party argued the issue with the person, but at 10.40 at night we just wanted to get on our way to our destination. So we paid and hoped to get a refund afterwards. After tons of e-mail and phone calls to Argus, National and Europcar hire, they all passed the buck and said I could not get the refund. So for 4 days hire I had paid insurance twice. A Total Rip Off.
