Car rental insurance varies widely, so please review the information below prior to making your reservation. Regulations of the country where you rent the car will be in effect for the duration of your rental. Ireland has a strict insurance coverage policy and will not accept certain credit cards for insurance purposes. All our car rental rates include fire and third party liability insurance. Our inclusive rates also provide collision and theft coverage at an advance purchase discount. You may elect to decline collision and theft coverage. If you plan to take advantage of coverage offered by your credit card, please contact your card issuer directly for details. Specific insurance information for your reservation will be printed on your confirmation voucher. The following guidelines apply to rentals taken out in Ireland:
Fire and third party liability insurance is mandatory and is included in all rentals. Third party liability insurance offers unlimited coverage in case of death or injury to people outside rental car and covers for damage to property outside of the rental car.
Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and theft protection are included in Auto Europe's inclusive rates at a discount and can be purchased at the rental counter. These reduce the deductible (responsibility of the client) to a relatively small sum, depending on the vehicle type. Personal Accident Insurance (PAI) is also available at the rental counter and Super CDW may be offered locally to reduce the deductible as low as zero. Optional insurance coverage is available with select suppliers only and rates are subject to change.
