Jul. 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

We were traveling with 7people and renting 2 cars. We had 6 very large pieces of luggage and 6 small bags. I figured there was no way we would get 2, five passenger vehicles to move all that luggage and 7 people and Alamo/Enterprise gave us there 2 cars with the biggest trunks and it worked perfect.

Cons:

The X insurance is expensive but the piece of mind made it necessary since driving in Ire is chaotic. Also, rented GPS was worthless since it did not recognize places, only addresses and in Ireland, addresses are only a convenience. The cell apps work much better, best pay for cell service in Ire.

Easirent does not have a kiosk at the airport and requires you to call them for a car pickup, which is difficult if you don’t have an Irish phone number (SIM cards aren’t available for sale at the Irish airport).The location of the actual car pick-up, once you get there, is less than desirable. The booking site also doesn’t state that you’re almost required to buy additional insurance when you buy the car AND you have to vacuum out the car yourself before returning it. Stick with a bigger name rental company, you’ll thank yourself later.

I had to pay about 140 euros separately, because despite taking out additional insurance, I had to leave an extra guarantee of 2,000 euros. Bad information. I never rent through the website again and my recommendations towards your service will be very bad.

Cons:

Very expensive. Windshield was dirty inside and out. Was on a sight- seeing trip through Ireland with dirty windshields. Car exterior was dirty also. Had no idea how to return car at Cork airport. No instructions on what to do, where to go, how to walk to terminal from car park. No signs at airport car park to indicate how to walk to terminal. Car itself was good size and easy to drive.

4.0 Okay

KAYAK

Pros:

The vehicle worked properly

Cons:

We were charged an extra drop fee of 65 Euros even though the original quote included this fee (verified by the US Budget office). When I questioned the local pickup office in Cork, they said to take it up with Kayak. We were also given a smaller vehicle than requested - a Nissan Juke, versus the intermediate Toyota Corolla or similar. We had a hard time fitting 3 people and three bags and it was supposed to fit 5 people with 3 bags. We then inquired about a different car and was told it would cost more.

Aug. 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff explained that the insurance was not part of the rental agreement and I would have to pay separately. This was not the fault of the car rental company and they remained helpful and professional in their dealings with me.

Cons:

The offer from Kayak did not include insurance, which I had to purchase at the desk and more than doubled the cost of the rental. This is a total rip off as the offer presented didn't stipulate this . Incidentally if I had hired directly from the car hire company it would have been much cheaper.

Cons:

Showed up to pick up the car I booked online for 86 euros and the man wanted a 5,000.00 Euro deposit for the car because I decline insurance because I have international coverage through my policy here in canada. I said I don't have that kind of money so how much for the car with insurance? I was quoted 571 euros. Remember I booked it online for 86. My Irish boyfriend asked what if i put it on my credit card and drive what is your best price? They dropped 250.00 euros off the rental price. At that point it was clearly discriminatory and subjective so we Did not rent a car and his sister drove us around for the week. How many other people have they ripped off with their insurance scam? Grateful for our backup plan.

Pros:

The car was clean at pickup and came with a full tank.

Cons:

We were quoted $331 by booking online. At pickup, our total came to $846 after all taxes and ‘required insurances.’ I’d asked to drop the insurances because my VISA benefits from my credit union would provide coverage, however, they then added cancellation fees that made cancelling not worth the trouble. Will not be using Payless/Budget or Kayak ever again.

Top tips for renting a car at Cork Airport

  • If you’re looking at car hire at Cork Airport, then you’ll find plenty of options for rental companies that can offer competitive rates. Renting a car is a popular choice with tourists especially with the accessibility of the airport from Cork city and surrounding areas such as Blarney Castle just north of the city, Ballycotton on the south coast and various other picturesque places along the coast. You can access major roads such as the N27 into Cork’s centre, which takes around 15min to drive, while the N22, N25, N28, N40 and N71 roads are all comfortable drives to surrounding towns, coastal and rural areas.
  • If you’re thinking of travelling around the southern coast of Ireland without any issues, then car hire at Cork Airport is the perfect way. In Cork and its surrounding areas, renting a car has several advantages over using public transport, especially as local transport links tend to become less frequent and less reliable away from the city. If you want to get away from the city and experience the stunning views that this area has to offer, then having a rental car is essential. It allows you the time to explore the region without having to wait for connecting buses or trains to more rural sites.
  • Cork Airport car hire is a very straightforward process. Once you’ve collected your luggage you will find all the various car hire companies in the arrivals area where all the desks are located. Once you’ve signed everything and been given the keys, your car will only be a short 3–5min walk away from the airport building. To help with a speedy service, make sure to book your car in advance of your flights through KAYAK; that way you’ll get a better price and you’ll be on your way much faster.
  • When renting a vehicle, be mindful that companies that offer car hire at Cork Airport may have different policies in place regarding the time the car needs to be returned. To make sure you avoid incurring any additional charges, remember to check the company policy prior to booking. You may find that some policies are more flexible than others, like that of Avis which has 24h drop-off service, while others such as Hertz, Budget and SIXT all require you to contact them directly to request an out-of-hours drop-off. Also keep in mind your company’s office hours, as each company differs from the other.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars at Cork Airport for C$ 61 or less
  • Book your rental car at Cork Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
