We booked through Car Trawler for a vehicle from County Car Rentals (now called Sixt Rent a Car) at Dublin Airport in May 2012. We paid Car Trawler for the rental with the expectation of paying for airport tax and gasoline on pickup of the car. On arrival at the County Car Rental desk we were advised that we also had to pay for optional Collision Damage coverage. It was more than double the cost of the car! We carry our own insurance for collision damage and have never had a problem with any... (read more)

Before the review, a note about the location. It's kind of hidden in the basement of Terminal 1 with all of the other car hire desks. However, you have to go around the corner, behind the escalator to find the desk. County Cars has now been taken over by Sixt, and it sounds like they have turned everything completely around. Upon arrival we were greeted by very friendly desk staff. We were a large party, so were renting two cars. However we wanted all of the charges on one credit card,... (read more)

I rented a car with "Countycarrentals" from the 16TH to 23 of November. This happen at the Dublin's airport desk. When i arrived at the desk, i asked for an extra insurance. I asked the guy if i could reduce the risks involved, so he present me an extra insurance (Master Cover), he didnt recomend me to get a higher insurance. Then he gave me the keys for a TOYOTA AVENSIS, when i ordered a WOLKSWAGEN GOLF (new one). I didnt go with me to the parking to take a look at the car he just... (read more)

• Without prior notice whatsoever almost 600 Euros is withdrawed the customer's credit card account. This happens about a month after the car is delivered. • County Car Rentals suddenly claim that the car has two dents. The clients have not had any accident with the car and are completely baffled. Furthermore, the car was thoroughly reviewed by County Car Rentals by delivery, and the car found ok! • County Car Rentals uses a unsharp picture where you see nothing as... (read more)

I rented from county, being Irish myself I wanted to put some business to my compatriots. More fool me. Like many other people who rented from County, there are few complaints about the vehicles, all the problems seem to arise in the customer care and checking out process and charges to customers. I brought the car back to Dublin, to the depot at the airport.I filled the car just before the M50 motorway, approx 15 motorway miles from my destination. On arrival at the depot I found the...

I rented a car through Argus Renta Car, and it ended up being with County Car Rentals. I thought I was getting a good deal at around $15 USD/day. Instead of pre-purchasing insurance with County, I called my credit card company to see if they covered rental car damage, etc. in case of an accident, and since my credit card does provide it's own rental car insurance, I did not opt to purchase insurance through County. When I arrived at the airport to pick up the car, I was informed that I would... (read more)

Like so many others in this list of reviews, I too was told that I had damaged the vehicle and was charged 578.85 Euro for the repairs. I tried to dispute the charge through my credit card, but to no avail. The car was not what we had reserved and there were several "mandatory" upcharges when we picked it up.
No, I will never use them again. (read more)

Hired a car through Rhino Car rental in the UK and they subcontracted to Country Car Rentals at Dublin Airport. Pulled a fast one at the check-in desk by asking me to pay for the fuel and then when the rep had my card in his hand proceeded to take for CDW, I only discovered that it loched 1,100 euro in my a/c- no money for the weekend. The car was no great shakes with scratches and dents. Returned car at 6.00am on 28th Feb- no one to check the car so took photos. This week I received paid... (read more)

This Rental Car Service is only trying to mask their high price using the low-cost-look. They don't have a clear Terms and Services text, they only have bookings for people >25 years and >5 years of license and their service was poor and not confident people. (read more)

We rented a small car that had no major damages. After we returned it County Car claimed we were responsible for a scratch that was not present when we left the car. We'll never book with them again!!! (read more)

Hired a normal car with normal scratches.
As it was late while returning the office was closed.
So I dropped the key and got my flight.
Afterwards they sent an invoice and balanced my credit card for that repair.
No way to get the money back.
There is also a clause to return the car empty!

When we arrived at the airport they were the only rental car desk that was not staffed. Instead there was a phone to call the main office to get someone to come over to that location. When we used the phone, we got voicemail. Once they finally arrived, the actual rental site was outside the airport.
But none of this compares with what happened when we returned to the US. Without contacting us first, we were charged an additional $900 for a claimed scratch to the car. When I called them I... (read more)

Very good deal and a smooth and friendly transaction without any nonsense. The only downside was waiting for the handover check back at the airport afterwards which was a bit chaotic as I had a flight to catch. (read more)

County Car Rental is out to get your money, a complete scam. My reservation for a $400 rental wound up costing me almost $4000! I made a travelocity reservation for Practical Car Rental, which operates through County, and when I got there they said they no longer worked with Practical, and charged me over 3 times what I'd made my reservation for (when I lodged this complaint later with Travelocity, County denied it! Despite my credit card statement to the contrary!) They told me I'd have to... (read more)

I booked a car through ACE on the website and was told in a reply that the car would be provided by County Car Rental.
I got very worried about this when i read all the reviews here and considered cancelling my reservation - but I couldn't find a cheaper one (or one with a good review!!).
I read the email from ACE and it explained the CDW costs and how to get to the desk at the airport. When we arrived the staff were polite and friendly and the cost matched the quote. We collected... (read more)

Made an online reservation with ACE Rental Car for a reasonable price (for Dublin anyway!). County Rental Car is there agent in Dublin. Got to the airport and arrived at the desk and was told that the OPTIONAL insurance was not optional! Told that my credit card insurance did not cover Ireland. I told them that it did, and they said that they would not accept it anyway. The cost of the insurance was more than the cost of the Car!!! They also took a fuel deposit, and when I returned the...

The entire experience was horrible. Upon arrival County Car Rental froze 900 euros in my bank account in case they would have to cover cost of damage. When we returned the car at Dublin airport they found one scratch at the front of the car that could have been rubbed out, they are now charging us approximately 1400 U.S. dollars for this one small repair. This was the only repair the inspector saw when we turned the car in and now they are claiming two other problems with the car.
We had a... (read more)

Car was fine, no trouble with pickup and County Car Rental people were courteous, but WATCH OUT! There is no "unlimited mileage" -- even if you pay extra for a second driver! Also, returning a car to Dublin Airport at the hotel is currently a total mess because of the construction at the airport. There is nowhere to park, and unless the desk agent is kind enough to drive you to the airport (as ours was), you'll be at the mercy of the slow and crowded hotel shuttle. (read more)

What a nightmare. The power source to recharge the GPS we rented did not work, stranding us in the middle of Ireland because County Car didn't bother to replace a fuse. Then they refused a refund because they were not there to inspect the car upon return (very convenient since they were open the fewest hours out of any of the rental places) and the fuse must have magically fixed itself upon return. The low tire pressure warning kept going off because they neglected to properly inflate the... (read more)

I have rented a car with County Rental that I have ordered via internet booking. They've sent me email quote with price and all conditions.

Got on phone talked to what was supposed to be customer sevice.
