Top tips for hiring a car in County Armagh

  • Part of County Armagh sits on the border of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. So, you may be wondering if your County Armagh car hire company will allow you to take your vehicle from County Armagh, into Ireland. The good news is that most County Armagh car hire companies will allow you to take your hire car across the border, and some larger companies, such as Hertz, may also be able to offer one-way hires if that suits your plans. Alamo, Budget, and Enterprise are just some of the companies that frequently allow this.
  • If you do decide to cross the border, there are two important things to keep in mind. The first is that there may be an extra fee for crossing the border. This is usually a flat fee charged per rental. For example, Enterprise charges around £300 for cars hired from the UK that travel into the Republic of Ireland. The second is that once you've crossed the border, all the speed signs will be in kilometres per hour, not miles per hour, so make sure you mentally adjust and be prepared to do some quick maths if your speedometer is only in miles per hour.
  • If you're travelling with children, you may need to organise a child restraint or booster seat for them. All children who are either under 135 cm or under 12 years old must use a restraint that is suitable for their height and weight. Bear in mind that the child seat rules in Ireland are slightly different, and if you're driving across the border, children who are under 150 cm or under 36 kg will need to have a booster seat as well.
  • If you're flying to the area, you can pick up your vehicle at Belfast International Airport (BFS). If you've flown from inside the UK, you can find the car hire desks at the domestic arrivals area. Another option is the Belfast City Airport (BHD) which also has a number of car hire companies, including Budget, Enterprise, and Hertz, in the Arrivals area. From either airport, you can drive to County Armagh in around 55 minutes.
  • Book your rental car in County Armagh at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in County Armagh are around 49% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • Should I hire a car in County Armagh?

    County Armagh is sometimes called "Orchard County" and if you'd like to see some of the region's apple orchards for yourself, having your own car is definitely the best way to go. Otherwise, you'll often be restricted to bus tours, which generally only go to the most popular tourist locations and keep you to a set schedule. Without a car, you may find yourself restricted to travelling between the major towns or making multiple connections and longer journeys. From the city of Armagh to the banks of Lough Neagh, you can see it all at your own pace by booking a vehicle that suits your needs with a County Armagh car hire company.

  • What is driving like in County Armagh?

    You'll generally find driving in County Armagh to be a very pleasant experience. Parking spaces are generally easy to find, particularly in the city of Armagh itself, where there's plenty of parking in the city centre. There are two main roads that cross the region, the M1 and A1, which links Belfast and Dublin. You can also use the A3 and the A29 to get across the country quickly. As you make your way to different destinations, you'll likely also be on country roads, where you may encounter animals.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in County Armagh?

    In this region, you may find it harder to find companies who allow you to hire a car in County Armagh if you're under 25. Keddy often hires some vehicles including compact cars to drivers who are at least 23 years old. Budget is a good option for drivers who are between 21 and 25. Most companies who do provide cars to drivers under 25 will charge a Young Driver's Surcharge. This is usually an additional daily charge, and it can vary between both companies and different locations.
