Car Rental Super Insurance Now Included as Standard


We have some fantastic news to share: We have just agreed an amazing deal with Hertz for our clients travelling to Ireland in 2015: Your Ireland rental car now includes Hertz’ ‘Super Cover’ insurance as standard.**

Car rental insurance? Not very exciting, right? Actually, it is, and here’s why!:

If you have an accident in your rental car WITHOUT Super Cover insurance:

You are liable to pay a ‘deductible’ amount towards the damage. The amount varies, depending on vehicle type. Here are the smallest and largest deductible amounts. All other vehicle types fall somewhere in between:

  • Economy Car Deductible: € 1,600.00 euro (Approx. US$2,100.00)
  • 8 Passenger Van Deductible: € 3,000.00 euro (Approx. US$3,900.00)

If you have an accident in your rental car WITH Authentic Ireland’s included Super Cover:

You are still liable for a variable deductible amount, but at a fraction of the values above:

  • Economy Car Deductible: € 150.00 euro (Approx. US$200.00)
  • 8 Passenger Van Deductible: € 250.00 euro (Approx. US$325.00)

And that’s not all – there are even more very significant benefits:

  • When you rent a car in Ireland without Super Cover, not only are you potentially liable for a large damage repair bill, rental car companies will ‘pre-authorize’ the deductible amount on your credit card – just in case you do have an accident. This means that on arrival in Ireland, an authorization ‘swipe’ is taken on your card, reducing your vacation purchasing power by up to US$3900.00!! This will never be an issue with your Authentic Ireland car rental.
  • Purchasing Super Cover directly from the rental agency on arrival will cost between $18.00 & $40.00 per day, depending on vehicle type. Multiply those rates by the number of days you are in Ireland, and you’re talking a very significant sum of money… It’s all included in your Authentic Ireland rental car reservation with Hertz!
  • After a long overnight flight to Ireland, you won’t be hit with the usual rental car company ‘hard sell’ to purchase Super Cover at the high rates detailed above. No, it’s all included. No confusion. No stress. Just begin your perfect Ireland vacation in the best possible way, without any nasty surprises at the rental desk!

Authentic Ireland is the only company offering these terms as standard to their clients.

Sure, we could offer a lower price (like all our competitors), and let you deal with the rental car mess on arrival. But that’s not how we operate. We genuinely care for our clients, and want every aspect of your Ireland experience to be the best it can be. Our rental car policy is merely proof of our claim – you will not find a more customer-focused, honest Ireland tour company than Authentic Ireland!

**Please note that the all-inclusive Super Cover rates are not available to ‘Underage Drivers’ between the ages of 23 & 24.**
