KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Sligo

  • Using Sligo car rentals offers a number of advantages that’ll allow you to fully explore the city's numerous neighborhoods. By choosing to rent a car, you have the advantage of taking all the fastest routes to your desired destinations, and of having complete control over your traveling itinerary. You’ll have more freedom to get around in Sligo with a rental car compared to public transportation with its obvious limitations. Using car rentals in Sligo can make it much easier to visit well-known sites like Inishmurray Island and Sligo Abbey.
  • Travelers who are interested in using car rentals in Sligo can get their car at Ireland West Airport Knock (NOC), which is a convenient entry point. The airport is conveniently accessible and about 25 miles from the city center. Several well-known vehicle-rental companies, including SIXT, Budget, and Enterprise, are housed in NOC's car-rental center, which is located in the Arrivals terminal. Those who choose to pick up their rental cars from NOC airport will enjoy a number of benefits—most importantly, the ability to choose from a large selection of rental cars to get your preferred model when choosing rental cars in Sligo.
  • If you’re thinking about utilizing car rentals in Sligo, it’s crucial to consider a few important factors. If you’re traveling with children, you must use booster seats for children under six years old or children shorter than 4'9". Keep in mind that rental agencies in Sligo might apply additional charges for drivers using these child seats. Driving defensively while in your rental car is critical if you hope to avoid unfavorable encounters with law enforcement in the city center. Authorities in Sligo regularly enforce traffic laws, particularly because of the incidence of reckless pedestrian and bicycle road crossings.
  • Navigating through Sligo, Ireland, can prove difficult due to the heavy weekday work traffic in the morning and evening. The city’s main roads, N4 and N15, are particularly impacted and experience significant traffic jams from 7 am to 8:30 am and from around 4 pm to 5:30 pm. To avoid delays, it‘s advised that you depart 40 minutes ahead of your planned time if you’re using N4 or N15 during rush hour.
  • Book your rental car in Sligo at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

I was ripped off because I had to pay far more than stated in my booking. I still don't know where the hidden costs come from and the friendly Avis-lady couldn't tell me either - and I tried contacting Priceline but there is no way you can file a complaint or reach anyone. I tried online but I guess it wasn't even read by anyone. This was the worst travel or booking experience ever. I will never ever again book anything via Priceline and Kayak!!! If anybody reads this: I am still waiting for someone to explain the extra-costs!!!
