There’s no question that the easiest way to get to Dublin Airport’s new Terminal 2 is by car. Before construction on the terminal wrapped up, a new access road was purpose-built for T2 to minimise congestion. Drivers who make use of car hire in Dublin Airport Terminal 2 are better off than those who have to hang around for the next available bus or pay inflated taxi fares.

Europcar is one of the main firms providing car hire service at Dublin Airport. Collecting your rental car is easy. From the landing area in Terminal 2, the route to the ultra-modern baggage claim area is clearly marked. From here, it’s a quick jaunt through customs to the Arrivals Hall, where Europcar has a kiosk that’s manned daily from 06:00 to 23:00.

After a quick word with the associate, you can proceed to the glass walkway (clearly marked), which leads out of the terminal. Partway down the causeway is a sign indicating a right-hand turn for buses and car rental services.

Every vehicle on offer from Europcar is less than three years old, so you can count on getting behind the wheel of a late-model vehicle that looks great and runs well. Planning ahead and pre-booking through the Europcar website is the best way to secure cheap car hire Dublin Airport service.

When returning your car, simply drop the vehicle at the same lot where you picked it up. It’s close to the Departure Halls of T1 and T2, so getting back in the air is painless.
