Galway is among the fastest-growing European capitals but despite its development, it still maintains a warm, small-town ambience.

Dubbed as the “gateway to the west”, getting there is complemented by cheap car hire in Galway Airport upon arrival. Travellers can avail cheap car hire in Galway Airport for more convenience it exploring the city and beyond.

One of Galway's major attractions is Lynch's Castle that dates back to 1490 and with renovations done in the 19th century. The Galway Cathedral is another site that is not likely to be missed since it reigns over the city skyline.

The Galways Arts Centre is worth visiting for its readings, exhibits, and concerts. It is housed in the townhouse where Lady Augusta Gregory once lived. City memorabilia, local documents, and photographs are housed in the Galway City Museum. Other interesting places to see in Galway include the Nora Barnacle House where the wife of James Joyce once lived, the Eyre Square's pedestrian park, and the festive medieval quarter.

A lot of leisure activities can be done in Galway. Golfing is one favourite pastime at the Galway Bay Golf and Country Club while horseback riding can be done through woodlands, mountain lands, farmlands, and forests. More the city's culture and tradition are best experienced in Galway's restaurants and pubs where visitors can enjoy fresh catch from the Atlantic, Irish music, and Guinness.

Day trips beyond Galway should be done and this is where car rental can be beneficial to travellers. A trip to the wild and rugged region of Connemara provides bogs, mountain passes, and serene valleys. Hiking trails and ocean views are not to be missed at the Twelve Bens mountain range. The Aran Islands should also be seen for Ireland's Christian and pre-Christian remnants along with the Dun Aengus Iron Age stone forts in Inishmor.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is ERentals the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?
