DOLLAR Car Rental Services at Dublin Airport

Dublin Airport is located only 10km from the city center of Dublin, and is an airport ranked as the largest in Ireland, with over 18 million passengers per year. With the official IATA code of DUB, it serves a great number of corporate travelers, as well as many tourists visiting the Dublin area. A large quantity of airline carriers serve the airport, including Aer Lingus and Ryanair, and it's terminal buildings have everything a passenger needs. There are also car hire companies available, such as Dollar Dublin Airport, and Dollar is a respected provider of car rental services, offering competitive rates for high quality vehicles.

The terminal buildings of Dublin Airport are known as Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, and the first is the older building of the airport, opened in 1972. Terminal 2 is a new construction, completed in 2010, and has the capacity of fifteen million passengers per annum, raising the total capacity of the airport to thirty-five million per annum. This terminal handles long-haul flights and the majority of flights from Aer Lingus, while Terminal 1 is for short-haul flights, and some Aer Lingus Regional flights. Both are extremely well equipped, with business areas and VIP rooms, airport shops and restaurants, internet connections, banking facilities and services for disabled passengers. Certain Dublin Airport car rental companies have offices in both terminals, but Dollar can be found in Terminal 1, and they offer a pre-book service. Their rental counters are in the main arrivals hall, and are easily found once passengers exit the customs area. At this rental location, Dollar is open every day of the week, from 05:00 to 21:00.

From Dollar, passengers have a choice of many vehicle categories, all containing high quality vehicles that are regularly cleaned and checked for safety. The smaller cars are usually considered as eco-friendly and fuel efficient, and can be ideal for driving in Dublin city. They are found in the Economy and Compact categories, and may be similar to the Volkswagen Polo, Hyundai Getz and the Toyota Yaris. Although these cars come with lower rental rates, they may lack adequate space for luggage, and families tend to rent larger vehicles found in the Midsize, Midsize Wagon, Standard, Standard Wagon or even Minivan categories. Midsize cars may include the Ford Focus, Toyota Corolla and Renault Scenic, while Standard cars are similar to the Toyota Avensis and the Renault Grand Megane Wagon.

Minivans from Dollar seat up to seven passengers (Ford Galaxy), and are useful for many types of journeys. From Dollar, there are even Luxury and Premium vehicles available, mainly of a BMW or Mercedes-Benz model, and Midsize SUV's include the Hyundai Tucson, carrying five passengers and three luggage items. Many cars in Ireland have manual transmissions, but the car rental companies do provide vehicles that are automatically controlled as well. With an automatic vehicle, Dollar hand controls for disabled drivers may be possible to arrange, and are a device which operates the brake and accelerator pedals, but no other vehicle functions, such as lights, blinkers and windshield wipers. From Dublin Airport, hand controls are hired with no extra charges, but will require an advanced reservation.

Another option for customers is a Dollar one way hire, available to those who would prefer to return their vehicle to a rental location other than Dublin Airport. One way hire services can be more expensive, but are also more convenient for certain travel itineraries. Find out from Dollar to where the hire car may be driven. Most are only allowed as cross-border rentals to Northern Island, and they may need to be returned to a location in the Republic of Ireland.

Along with a vehicle from one of the Dublin Airport car hire companies, customers can hire child seats should they be travelling with babies or young children, satellite navigation systems if they are unfamiliar with the road network of Dublin and luggage racks for additional space. Child car seats come in all sizes, and it's best to specify the age of your child so that Dollar can provide one of an appropriate size. A satellite navigation system may not be essential for safety, but is a wonderful piece of equipment to have with you, especially when you are a first-time driver in Ireland. The device can give accurate directions in voice or visual mode to any destination, and is equipped with an advanced colour touch screen with accurate visuals even in direct sunlight. A GPS will also be able to show the nearest gas station, hotel, restaurant, shopping center, tourist attraction, pharmacy etc. as it is pre-programmed with an extensive list of points of interest.

The requirements for car hire in Ireland include a valid drivers license held for a certain number of years prior to the rental date, and a major credit card, such as American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard or Visa. This card is very important as the car rental companies of Dublin Airport do not accept payments in cash or by debit card. Other documents may also be necessary, for example, and International Driving Permit, a return airline ticket, proof of residence and a passport.
