SNN auto rentals with automatic trans.

Appears that automatic transmission autos are very expensive there. Anyone know of the cheapest company in the Shannon airport for this type auto? Thanks in advance. I know Ferdia will respond to this! Thanks. Frank

Don't know about Shannon, but the cheapest price I could find for my trip in July was Hertz, through the Aer Lingus website. Am renting for 11 days, pickup in Dublin, dropoff at SNN. Total price for an automatic, before SuperCDW but including CDW, theft, etc., was $800.

Not big on local car rental, but will check a few places. In the meantime, have a look at this recent thread:

I booked with my travel agent and I got a rate of 344.60CAD for 6 days in June. We are picking up the car in Shannon and dropping it off in Dublin. The rate is exclusive of any insurances. Our credit-card covers it, even in Ireland. I've read many treads on TA that a lot of credit-card from the USA dont cover insurances. And insurances are often a big part of the rate.

We're paying around 280 Euro for 10 days in April without any insurance. My world card covers damages. I booked it many months ago through Irish Car Rentals. It's an automatic Toyota Corolla size car.

You may want to look into Kemwel, an auto rental clearing house. We rented through them last year and had no problem what-so-ever ... including renting out of Belfast then returning to SNN. We are a fairly large group (with golf clubs) so we need a very large vehicle. We have a Mercedes VITO rented for 10 days in April for just over 1000 US dollars. (-SCDW but includes the rest)

Hope this helps and enjoy your trip!
