Quick and easy hassle free pick up of the car.
Anonymous Cork Airport 09 July 2018
The size was just what we required. No too small but small enough for driving the roads of SW Ireland. Also good ground clearance. These days I would have expected GPS to be standard in a hire car. Also I wonder why the charge is higher for an automatic, when they are the most common vehicle.
Anonymous Dublin North 06 July 2018

Very easy to deal with, helpful and polite representative. Car had not been cleaned inside or out. It was not very powerful especially when it was climbing hills.
Anonymous Dublin Airport 21 June 2018
The car had many scratches, scuffs, and dents. Fortunately, I knew enough to document them before leaving with the car. It took an extra 15 minutes but was worth it since I was questioned about one of the dents upon the return.

As expected Very poor signage for return to Belfast made return stressful and took more time. Needed help from fellow passenger Additional cost for return to different rental location airport seems excessive

Speed of paperwork processing at pick up and drop off. Wasted time queuing at desk in Dublin airport when I should have gone directly to bus to car compound. My fault but instruction on booking confirmation could have been made more explicit.
Anonymous Dublin Airport 30 May 2018
Staff were good. Spec of car was poor. No CD player, language on dash was german, no steering wheel controls for radio etc. Inside was not particularly clean.

Car drove well . Just a very small comment; car was quite old(70k mileage) and there was no point on the radio to connect our music I-pod to which would have been nice as we were travelling around quite a lot.

pleased that the car was given a thorough check when we brought it back to make sure no damage. could have done with more signage to show route to car rental return as we were not coming off the M50 but by a lesser road and didn't see any signs until we were very nearly at the airport entrance.
