Student ID cards
Some attractions and travel options offer a reduced student rate/admission charge on the presentation of a valid student ID card. Always state that you have a valid student ID when making bookings before you arrive.
Car rental age requirements and restrictions
Most of the major car rental companies have desks at airports, ferry terminals and cities across Ireland. Generally, these companies do not rent cars to drivers under 21. It is advisable to book in advance, especially if you are traveling during the high season, as it is generally cheaper.
For insurance reasons you should advise the car rental company if you intend traveling between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
