I want to buy a car for use as a taxi. My budget is €15,000. Can I avail of scrappage? I have a 1998 Fiat Brava.

Yes, your car is eligible for the scrappage scheme. The best car you could get, if your budget stretches, is the Renault Fluence, which would cost €15,800 under the scrappage scheme.
Renault also has a special option for taxi drivers:
"Renault has a specific extended warranty programme of up to 5 years with unlimited mileage for taxis.
Renault Ireland is the first car company on the Irish market to offer very high mileage customers like taxi drivers who purchase a Renault, this extended warranty programme. Drivers can opt for a 4th year or 5th year extended warranty with unlimited mileage from €529.00."
Hope that helps.Answered by: Complete Car Adviser
