Helpful friendly staff. Easy to find the desk in the airport The customer service was very good especially when we had a puncture. Authorisation was provided over the phone for the tyre repair and the cost was refunded on return of the vehicle. Car was incredibly basic and didn't even have a CD player even though we didn't book the cheapest car.

Had booked Polo, given a nissan Xtrail, this was upgrade +++. proved suprisingly economical Car was a bit big, proved a little worrying to park. Had to pay for fuel upfront, this has since been refunded.
Stephen Shannon Airport 30 June 2017
No unnecessary pushing of insurance at pick up. Sensible inspection of car at drop off, Fan on car only worked at full setting.
Anonymous Shannon Airport 26 June 2017
The car was over 3 years old with over 145,000 km on the clock. It was noisy and vibrated at 120kmph. Not what I had come to expect.

Great service
Joan Shannon Airport 24 June 2017
Car was excellent by what always makes it a pleasure to use Budget at Shannon is the staff. They are without a doubt the most consistently pleasant, helpful and friendly staff that I have ever dealt with (without them being false and gushing). They are a fabulous welcome and first and last impression of Ireland. I use them a lot. Nothing.

Monica Shannon Airport 10 March 2017
Quickness of getting the car. The guys who drove the bus to and from where cars are picked up and dropped off very friendly (Gavin for pick up and Henry Jordan for drop off). Budget's over the counter zero excess insurance way too expensive.
Daniel Shannon Airport 23 February 2017
Cost was reasonable. Was a brand new car. Pick up is close to desk. Providing navigation in cars is welcome benefit (I rent a lot of cars)...can be a deciding factor when renting if you calculate into cost benefits.
