Car rental

WE are renting a car through Travelocity with Budget from Dublin airport and retuning it to Shannon airport. Is the Shannon Budget return sight at the airport or offsite. Also when I made the reservation( not paid for yet) they did not indicate that there was an additionl charge for the remote dropoff. Does any one have a similar experience?

If you do a little searching through the forum you'll find plenty of advice on car hire - most of which recommends avoiding renting through an agent and to watch out for the high excess/reimbursable on CDW in Ireland and high cost of super cover insurance to reduce this to something reasonable.

Budget drop is 5 minutes from the terminal @ SNN provided they are open or Key drop in the terminal and park through the Short stay.. As you are considering renting through an agent (not an act I personally recommend) just make sure of what is included in the quote and that you have full details of what will be expected at the collection desk. There should be No extra charges for Key drop and I am reasonably sure Budget do not charge for alternate airport drop..
