Of course, we will permit baby seats into our cars, but it will be up to the renter/driver, to ensure that the baby seat is supplied (we don’t supply these) and installed securely and in the correct and safe position.
We do not allow baby seats to be fitted into our vans. Albeit in the unlikely event of an accident, the reason for this policy is safety, as passenger side airbags could be extremely dangerous to an infant in a baby/child seat directly in the vicinity of an activated air-bag. Also, please note that some manufacturers do not supply commercial vehicles with a passenger side air-bags as standard.
Each rental vehicle is provided with a policy booklet, which details the contact details of the breakdown assistance operator that will instantly recover the vehicle. The vast majority of our vehicles are also still within their warranty period, and would carry a breakdown assistance cover also. We at Go Rentals will immediately act to get a similar vehicle to your location and assist with the transfer of goods/luggage as necessary. If you still feel you have been unjustly handled due to the mechanical fault of the vehicle, please forward your concern to our Lease Manager, and/or Managing Director, and we will investigate this with the utmost of attention and will endeavour to bring the matter to a swift and amicable conclusion.
There is a company policy in place whereby:
The renter must notify an agent of Go Rentals immediately, (+353) 045 256800 or info@GoRentals.ie or 087-9677301. The vehicle will be assessed immediately on return. The damage will be photographed, and an estimate of repair can be available immediately if there is light damage. Or if there is severe damage there could be a delay due to pricing of parts, but a printed estimate will be available within 24hours of the next business day. The damage repair cost is the renters responsibility and the liability is yours alone to pay but if you would like to process payment through your insurance company, we can facilitate and assist. A claim will need to be registered with the insurance company, a claim number sought, and you will need to ensure your insurance companies’ assessor swiftly calls to site to view the vehicle. You will need to do this as it is your policy! Parts (if required) will have already been ordered as we will need to get the vehicle back on the road at the earliest convenience, and once figures are agreed with insurance assessor, the repair will be carried out and the insurance company will be invoiced. The renter will be liable too for the excess on your policy, which we suggest you determine immediately once you open the claim with your insurance company, this should also be stated on your original insurance policy document. If there are any delays in the insurance process claim then we will revert back to the renter for payment in full, and the renter may be liable for down-time of the vehicle also if the delays are excessive due to lack of effort on the part of the renter.
We reserve the right to charge the renter for all expenses incurred on callouts relating to incidents other than mechanical failure. These might include:
Incorrect fuel put in vehicle
Towing, recovery and storage of vehicle
Damage caused to any part of the vehicle which has caused the vehicle to break-down
Keys lost or locked inside vehicle

When there is ad blue involved with a vehicle, it will be given out at the start of the lease full of AdBlue and it is the responsibility of the renter to keep the vehicle topped up with AdBlue throughout the lease term.
This will need to be confirmed prior to lease quotation and execution. With an additional excess fee per km, which is charged monthly. We charge for any excess kms on a monthly basis. We will not be waiting until lease termination to process charges of excessive mileage/ kilometres driven. We can tailor the rental cost to suit your requirements once you confirm the estimated rental mileage which will be driven. This can be arranged with the Go Rentals agent prior to booking. We also offer one tailored adjustment of your mileage, for the remaining term of your lease which must be requested no earlier than ¼ way through your term. We will inspect the vehicle within the first 3 months of the Lease Term to ensure the vehicle is being maintained to a satisfactory standard, and to ensure mileage criteria is being adhered to.
