Argus Car Hire was established in 1959. Driven by the aim of delivering secure, value-for-money car hire from global car rental companies, Argus Car Hire has grown from a small family-run business to one of the world's leading online car rental reservation sites.
Since renting out our first vehicle in Terenure, Dublin, the industry has seen a lot of change. Makes and models have come and gone, but Argus Car Hire has always moved with the times. In 1996 ArgusCarHire.com became the first car rental company in Europe to sell car hire online.
Being at the forefront of the latest technological advancements means we can offer the best possible rates in the market. We use the very latest technologies developed by CarTrawler, to enable our suppliers to return their cheapest fully inclusive rates to us for each car individually.
Today, our booking engine stocks 800 of the world's top car hire suppliers and 30,000 worldwide locations so that customers have access to the cheapest online car hire at airports, ferry ports, railway stations and cities all around the world.
