Hi. Can someone please explain as to why hire cars are so expensive in Ireland . I’m planning to visit in September and was hoping to travel around by car, but the prices are outrageous.

Hi Ian,

Google would be your friend here to find car rental companies operating in Ireland. Some examples would be Irish Car Rentals, Europcar, CARHIRE.ie, and Hertz Ireland. By browsing around, you can find the most affordable option.

You may also be interested in checking out this Trips Ideas page where you can find inspiration for self-drive tours around the island.

I noticed that compared to a few years ago the rental cost has increased a lot, why?

Hey Augusto,

This appears to be a problem in most destinations, as car hire companies begin to update their fleets after the devastation caused by the pandemic over the past two years and also deal with other inflationary issues affecting their costs.

Are you looking to visit the island this year?
