KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Waterford

  • When you get a car hire in Waterford, you get the ultimate flexibility to explore the city and the beautiful nearby surroundings. It’s better to opt for a hire car than other modes of transport, such as public buses, due to the fact you can rely on your own schedule rather than waiting for buses to arrive. For instance, if you want to travel to Woodstown Beach, you can get there in about 20min with your car hire, compared to around 50min if you take a bus.
  • Waterford Airport (WAT) doesn’t have any car hire companies in the arrivals hall; however, you can take a taxi from the front of the terminal to a nearby car hire agency, such as Hertz, in about 12min. This is located on the Butlerstown Roundabout, from where you can conveniently continue your journey to your accommodation. Other car hire companies close to the airport are Enterprise and Europcar, so you should easily be able to find a suitable car hire in Waterford.
  • The city centre in Waterford is almost completely pedestrianised, with only narrow roads left for cars to navigate. For that reason, if you decide to drive in the centre, you should opt for a small vehicle, such as Ford Ka. There is also a big bicycle hire culture in the city, with many of those on bikes being tourists. When driving in your Waterford car hire, you should keep an eye out for cyclists that aren’t familiar with the roads.
  • During rush hour, which tends to be on weekdays roughly from 07:00 to 09:00 and 16:30 to 18:30, there tends to be a lot of traffic in the city, so it’s best to avoid driving at these times if possible. One road that is especially busy is the R710 ring road, which sees a lot of traffic jams. During winter, the roads can also become icy, so you should take extra care when travelling through the city.

Location is on an extremity of town so you’ll likely need a taxi to pick up. The staff were professional, courteous, efficient, and thorough. I didn’t feel rushed at all and they answered all the questions I had. They treated me like someone they knew rather than ‘just’ a customer. The car was in great shape and was very fuel efficient. I highly recommend it!
