Car rental location Cork Airport

Location information for Cork Airport

The Republic of Ireland's second-most populated city, Cork, is also home to the nation's second-busiest airport, which receives more than two million visitors every year. Low budget flights on Aer Arann, Aer Lingus and Ryanair form the majority of Cork Airport's passenger traffic. Cork Airport's Farmers Cross location lies only six kilometres south of Cork's city centre, easily reached by car rental in Cork Airport.

Airport Facilities

Cork Airport's recently revamped terminal can now handle up to three million passengers per year. The Departures area now stands on the terminal's upper floor, while the Arrivals, Check-in, Ticketing and Baggage Claim areas are all on the lower floor. Restaurants and shops stand at both ends of the security screening area and currency exchange services are available in the airport's bank.

Car Hire Cork Airport

Car hire in Cork Airport is an appealing transportation option due to the airport's close proximity to Cork and the wide selection of available vehicles from the nine rental companies in the terminal's Arrivals hall. These companies include Avis, Argus, Budget, Europcar, Dollar, National and Hertz. Some of these companies offer on the spot rentals, but others only accept advance reservations, so it's advised to book before arriving.

Driving

After visitors compare car hire from Cork Airport's wide variety of selections and pickup their vehicle, they can easily cruise along Cork's well maintained road network that includes the M8 motorway towards Tipperary and Cork counties. Cork's heavy rush hour traffic, narrow one-way streets and busy bridges across the River Lee are the biggest challenges visitors will face while driving around the city.

Things To See and Do

Fort Island and its beautiful Fota Wildlife Park lie just across the bridge from Cork. Visitors can also drive the short distance to one of Ireland's most legendary landmarks, the Blarney Castle, where they can kiss the castle's namesake stone. Gougane Barra, a spacious forest park filled with wildlife and numerous lakes, is known as the most beautiful spot in all of County Cork.

Best Time To Visit

Cork enjoys one of Ireland's mildest climates thanks to its location in the middle of the nation's southern Atlantic coast. Although the city experiences up to 100 foggy days per year, they are far outnumbered by Cork's average 291 days of sunshine. Like elsewhere in Ireland, Cork's liveliest day of the year is the 17th of March, but the peaceful autumn season brings pleasant weather. Cork's average annual daytime temperature is a comfortable 13°C.

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 121CarHire.com 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).
