We are staying in Dublin for a few days after arrival in Ireland and plan on renting a car after our Dublin stay. We need an automatic and have decided to reserve through Conn's. I left a voice message with Conn's regarding how accurate our pick-up and drop-off times needed to be. I missed their call back but the message sounds like we don't have to be there exactly at rental start time and there would be no fee for picking up late. I did read on their website though the there is a 'grace period allowed from 29 minutes from time of pick-up'. What does this exactly mean? Would we lose rental if later than 29 minutes? We are typically early or on time people and we don't plan on being late but I just want to understand how things work.
I was also told in the message that we could save time on the front end of the rental and pick-up from south circular in Dublin. That would be super but does anyone know if we would be guaranteed an automatic, if reserving one? An automatic is a must have.
Sure wish I didn't miss the call back...
