Do I need to insure the vehicle on my own insurance?

Is payment required in advance and do you need a deposit?

When I’ve booked a vehicle, what do I need bring with me when collecting?

You will need to present the following upon collection:

  • Your full drivers’ licence
  • A form of identification that confirms your home/business address, e.g. utility bill, bank statement etc.
  • Credit/debit card for advance payment of rental, unless already received by bank transfer.  A deposit may also be required by credit/debit card
  • Confirmation of comprehensive insurance from your broker/insurance company, noting our interest (if not already sent to us by email)

Are there any territorial limits as to where I can bring the vehicle?

Yes, hire vehicles may only be used within Ireland.

What methods of payment do you accept for truck & van rental?
