Monthly Leasing Conditions


Monthly Lease Rental Term

A monthly lease is a rental of 28 days. Customers who require a car for more than one month can indicate this using the duration dropdown on the booking engine and we will arrange multiple contracts.


Video call to renew contract every 28 days

For rentals longer than one month every 28 days we will arrange a video call where we will review the condition of the car and check the mileage before renewing your contract remotely.


Mileage Limit

A mileage limit of 2,500 km per month (28 days) applies to monthly leases. Additional mileage will be charged at €0.28 per km.


Insurance Included

Insurance is included in the monthly contract. You are comprehensively insured for damage caused to the vehicle as well as damage or injury caused to a third party. A €250 excess applies for each individual incident during the lease. The lease holder is required to inform Budget Leasing Ireland of each individual incident and complete an incidient report form.

All customers should be aware they have a responsibility to take due care as insurance only covers accidental damage to the vehicle. Please note you the customer are liable when damage is due to your gross negligence or is deliberate.


Personal Use Only

The leased vehicle cannot be used for the carriage of passengers for hire and reward or for the use of delivery and collection of goods and services.


Additional Driver

One additional driver can be added when picking up the car for €100 per month. The additional driver must present their details in person at the point of pickup.


Driving Licence

Drivers must present a full valid unendorsed driving licence which they have held for a minimum of two years. The license should be issued in the drivers country of permanent residence and an English language translation should be provided where appropriate. 

UK driving licence holders should note that the paper part of your driving licence is no longer valid. We require all UK licence holders to present evidence of their driving record (entitlements/endorsements) before the vehicle can be rented. This can be obtained by printing it out from the DVLA’s ‘Share Driving Licence’ section - before you collect your vehicle. This must be printed within 21 days of your pickup date.

We reserve the right to ask pre-qualifying questions on your insurance history. You may be refused a vehicle based on the answers you provide.

Drivers with 2 or more unspent driving convictions or one unspent driving conviction from the list below will not be eligible to rent.

  • Using a vehicle uninsured against third party risks

Failure to disclose any driving convictions may mean you are fully liable for damage caused to the leased vehicle or any third party.
