Renting a car in Ireland – Don't use Budget rental
I am planning to rent a car to head down to BarcampIreland. Budget looked like a good bet and their prices were competitive. So I booked my car but noticed as a I was filling in the payment form that they levied a â‚¬25 euro airport pickup fee. This seemed a bit steep as the car itself only cost â‚¬40. No bother, sure I’ll move the pickup to Drumocondra. No joy there however, there is similar â‚¬25 euro fee for pickup in a “City Centre location” as the woman said on the phone. So basically no matter where you get your car in Dublin you’ll suffer a â‚¬25 surcharge that is buried in the small print.
The final screw job is a â‚¬30 euro cancellation fee if you fail to cancel the book withinÂ 48 hours.
Use Argus instead, cheaper and better in everyway with no hidden surcharges.
