Some Guidelines and Tips for driving your Car Rental in Ireland;

English is the common language in the Republic of Ireland and all road signs are in English.

In both South and Northern Ireland all traffic drives on the LEFT side of the Road. Most visitors flying into the Republic of Ireland arrive at either Shannon, Cork or Dublin
Airports. These airports are located outside of the City Centre's and when you collect your Irish Rental Car you will have time to get used  to the local driving conditions before
reaching some of the more built up area's.

In Ireland most of the cheapest rental cars are Manual Transmission (Stick Shift), Automatic cars are available but are generally more expensive to rent. (You can specify
which transmission you would prefer when you make your booking). If you are visiting Ireland from the UK then most of the road signs, road markings and roundabout's will
be familiar to you. If you are visiting from continental Europe or the USA then it may take you a little while to get used to the road layouts and driving on the "other" side of the
road. Your Irish Car Rental company should supply you with a Road Map which will help you find your way around.

Some road Safety tips for Ireland;
To help you enjoy your Car rental in Ireland and your visit, we have collected some Irish Road Safety Information and some general information.

Car Rental Safety
Your Rental Car will be provided to you in good condition, and you, as the driver of the vehicle, will be responsible for ensuring that the car, whilst in your care, is roadworthy
and safe. We would suggest checking your car; Tyres, Brakes, Vehicle operation, Lights and other essential items on collection before driving, if you find any faults point them
out to the Irish Rental Car Company reps at the car collection point..

Drink Driving in Ireland;
Ireland has been clamping down on drink driving in recent years so that drink driving is not tolerated with severe penalties imposed on people who have a legal reading of
over 80mg per 100ml of blood. This equates to approximately one Pint of Beer. Do not attempt to drive your hire/rental car or any other vehicle whilst under the influence of
Alcohol in Ireland. The easiest rule of thumb so as not to break the law is Do not Drink and Drive.

Baby and Child Seats in Ireland;
New rules were introduced in 2006 with regard to Baby and child car seats in Ireland, basically they are as follows and apply to all cars including hir/rental cars in Ireland.
If in the front seat all children must either be in a child seat or wear a seat belt. There are no exceptions to this rule. In the rear seat children less than four years must use an
appropriate child restraint. Children over 4 years must use an appropriate child restraint, where available, or a seat belt. Where airbags are fitted the renter should check the
rental car handbook about any special precautions or limitations to be taken when using a child restraint in the front seat. Your Rental Car will have fitted seat belts for all
passenger seats.

Seat Belts
Unless exempted, every person in a car is legally obliged to wear a seat belt where one is fitted. That includes drivers and front and rear passengers. The driver is
responsible for ensuring that passengers under 17 years of age comply with the law. The maximum fine is EUR 200 for a persons first offence. Exempted persons: Some
persons are exempted in accordance with the regulations, e.g. Gardai Siochana, Defence Forces etc., including persons holding a medical certificate that it is inadvisable on
medical grounds to wear a seatbelt (or child restraint).

Safe Driving
Please take care, especially at junctions, we want you to enjoy your Car Rental experience in Ireland as much as possible. If this is your first time to experience driving on the
left hand side of the road take some time to get used to it, remember to place yourself in the center of the road as the driver.

If you are unfortunate enough to have an accident in your Irish Rental Car you must report this to the GARDAI, (POLICE), and should do this before leaving the scene. You can
contact the GARDAI from any telephone by dialing 999. All emergency services can be contacted at any time by dialing 999 including the Fire Service, Ambulance and Coastal
Rescue, though it must be remembered that this is for emergencies only. You must also inform your Rental Car company if you have an accident. You will find their contact
details on the Car Rental  Documents that you received at the time of your Irish Car Rental collection.
