Warning: Car Rental Rip-offs!! Some Require €2,000 - €15,000 Deposit to Decline CDW


Has anyone notice the changed look of the Dan Dooley websites?   https://www.dandooley.com/     and    https://www.dan-dooley.ie/

In the past, they offered a box to 'Tick' to Waive CDW AND, another to 'Waive Excess'.  The option to choose the 'Excess' on the initial quote request has disappeared.  Granted, they DO offer the 'Excess Cover' if you choose a car and then begin the booking process -- but, there is NO detail given as to why you should need to purchase it -- Nor, is there any details given as to what the consequences are, if declining to.    furious  furious

 Which has the potential of 'hiding away' what MANY renters consider the 'Hidden Fee' -- and providing that 'Unpleasant SURPRISE!' at the counter.  Something associated with Irish Car Hire in general that Dooley has proudly avoided.  hmm  hmm

As if renting a car needs to be made more confusing!

I guess the Dooley transparency is a thing of the past now that they have been sold. Just more work for the consumers.

Concerning Enterprise and Dooley, less completion is never a good thing.

FYI -- Just got off the phone with 1 800 MC-ASSIST to secure my Letter of Coverage.  While the letter still states that it is valid for 60 days, the helpful Rep (Carl) advised that Irish Car Hire companies were now insisting that the letter be issued within 21 days of the rental's commencement.  

I have NO other verification of that, but I also have no reason to doubt the veracity of the statement, either.

Back to the old days when you needed a letter within 28 days of the end of your rental. Temporary insurance has a clause that it is only valid for 28 days, day 29 you would be uninsured.
