Poor servicePros:Returning the car was smoothCons:The cars do not match the description: economy are Nissan Micras, not VW Polos. The car offered had multiple dents and scrapes, the steering was unresponsive and the breaks spongey. There were also significant queues for the pick up.Reviewed 22 Aug. 2018

Pick up is not in terminal but by shuttle bus on oPros:Once we got to the car rental place outside the airport the pick up procedure was fastCons:Pick up is not in terminal building as suggested at booking instead we had to go to the Budegt counter in Terminal, where sent to a shuttle bus station from there, had to wait for the bus and arrived at the real budget station after a 10 minute busride. The car was relatively old with +80k KM.Reviewed 11 Dec. 2016

Pick up location misleadingPros:Conformation email says Dublin Airport arrivals hall but does not say which terminal. Additionally once checking in at the Budget desk in the airport you have to get a bus to the off-site location and check in again. Misleading.Reviewed 3 Jan. 2017

Pros:People were friendly, car was fine.Cons:I discovered the hard way that I overestimated my ability to drive a standard. When I asked to switch to an automatic they charged an extra £80, which seemed excessive. The automatic was confusing to start, I had to get an employee who had a hard time too.Reviewed 19 Apr. 2019

Great rental price, extortionate deposit and fuel policyPros:Very reasonable rental price. Decent enough service but still had to wait in line for ages even when only one couple ahead of me.Cons:Very expensive deposit €2200 and had to pay for full tank of fuel €130 as that is 'policy', I've never had to do that before. Still waiting on both to be refunded!Reviewed 15 May 2018

Great ServicePros:The service was really easy and helpful, and all the staff had a smile. The cost seemed pretty fair and I had no trouble dropping the car back. The team rung me to let me know I’d left something in the car. Recommended.Cons:As with all car hire at the airport, you need to get a minibus to the parking lot - but that’s just the set-up at Dublin Airport I think.Reviewed 25 Dec. 2018
