We are super excited to introduce our new Featured Partner, GoCar, Ireland’s leading car-sharing service.
Whether you need a car to explore, collect guests, run errands or shop, GoCar provides pay-as-you-go car rental with hourly rates and a return-to-base scheme. Their 8000 members enjoy use of 190 cars and vans in Dublin and Cork with no monthly fees.
What are the benefits of car sharing?
- Enjoy the monetary savings and freedom of not owning a car; no road tax, insurance, maintenance or fuel.
- Keep your change in your pocket with free parking in Dublin City Council areas.
- It’s more environmentally friendly encouraging fewer cars on the road, and less pollution,
- Choose the right size vehicle that according to your specific needs.
- Multiple collection bases around Dublin and Cork gives you greater flexibility.
So how does it work?
It takes just 4 steps to get on the road. Become a GoCar member, book your car, hop in and vvvvvrroooom off you go. It really is as simple as that.
To become a member you need to be a minimum of 21 year of age, own a full driving licence for at least 2 years and own a valid credit or debit card. They accept European and North American driving licences, for countries outside of these regions you may need to have an International Driving Licence.
An Excellent Alternative
Taxis are plentiful in Dublin , but sometimes you just want to have your own privacy or the freedom to stop and go when and wherever you want. A classic rental car company may offer competitive daily rates but if you only need a car for a few hours GoCar is faultless. The convenient service provides many benefits to Dublin and Cork city dwellers and if you don’t want to the hassle of owning a car and all the paperwork, not to mention the costs that comes with it, GoCar is definitely for you!
