CAR RENTAL INSURANCE
All self-drive cars in Ireland include unlimited mileage, local taxes and third party insurance. This means that if you have an accident, the other party is covered.
Under the third party insurance policy, the hirer is responsible for all damage to the rental car and must have an imprint of a major credit card with the car rental company at the start of the rental to cover any damages that may occur. The hirer can indemnify himself/herself against damage to the rental car (excluding the first Euro 300 plus tax) by taking a Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) at a supplementary charge. This can be included or excluded in the car hire charge.
The driver and passengers in a rental car may choose to take out Personal Accident Insurance (PAI) to cover injuries received while driving. This is at a supplemented cost and can be paid directly to the car hire company.
Hirer must be between 23 and 75 years of age. For certain car groups other restrictions may apply. Drivers must hold a valid driving licence which they have held for at least 2 years prior to rental.
Gasoline is the hirers responsibility and is not included in the car price.
The additional charges to cover an additional driver are payable at the start of hire directly to the car hire company
Specialized Travel Services strongly recommends Travel Insurance to cover trip cancellation & interruption, medical & health insurance, loss of baggage or trip delay
