Killarney Airport Guide

Car Hire

Kerry Airport is also known as Aerfort Chiarrai in Irish, while it is sometimes referred to as Farranfore Airport. It is located in Farranfore, County Kerry, eight miles southeast of Tralee. Flying into this airport is a great way to see the stunning Irish scenery as the airport is within driving distance of a number of local tourist destinations. Therefore taking advantage of car hire at Kerry Airport is recommended.

Who to Book With
There are a number of car rental companies with representatives in the main terminal. International companies such as Avis, Budget, Hertz and Europcar can be found here, along with local company Dooley Car Rental. All suppliers offer advance booking on a number of vehicles.

Need to Know Essentials
In order to collect a pre-booked vehicle, you must present the following documentation:

- Both parts of a valid driver’s licence
- The credit card used to make the reservation
- A valid passport
- A booking confirmation email
- Proof of address, such as a utility bill

Driving in Ireland is similar to driving in England. The drink-driving limit is the same (0.08 percent) and strictly enforced, with serious reprimands for drivers found over the limit. Seatbelts are required for all passengers and speed limits should be adhered to, with fines in place for anyone caught driving over the limit. Distance and speed signs are in kilometres, so ensure you understand the conversion. A map will come in handy as not all roads are signposted. Motorways are well maintained, although some country roads are unlit at night.

See our guide to the Republic of Ireland for more information on driving here.

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 Carrentals.co.uk 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?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
