Rental Car/Car hire-Shannon airport

This will be our first time renting internationally at the end of next month. Any suggestions for which company for the best rate for an economy rental.

I just rented through Avis at Shannon. €33 a day for super insurance on top of rental agreement of about €130 (Expedia) fly/drive deal. I was given a standard transmission, which I am used to driving, having done so for over 20 years, Nissan Juke, which is a roomy car.

Super insurance is the way to travel in Ireland because of narrow lanes and walls covered in vines.

be careful with understanding the insurance...you say it includes cdw but what is their charge for super cdw?.....two totally different animals....

as bean said, read read read....you need to make sure you are comparing apples to apples....too many folks who have rented thru a second party end up with some very unpleasant surprises at pickup....

bean is right, i use dooley and have never had a problem, even when i brought the car back this year with a booboo on it...never had any surprises at pick up or drop off...their price is what it says because you can get it all inclusive....also you can prepay in full from home....

also be aware, all rental companies will charge you for a tank of gas at pick up and most will refund that when you bring the car back full.....

have fun.........

I rented from Dooley for the first time this month and had no issues. Booked with the US office, made sure to read up on all insurances fully, and took every insurance they offered (CDW, super CDW, and tire/glass). It seems your best bet is to always book direct and not use travel sites to book your rentals.
