The woman, aged in her mid 20s, was driving a GoCar rental vehicle in the Irish village of Mullinavat, Waterford, on Monday, the Mirror reports.
After smelling what she first thought was gas, she pulled over and made the grim discovery in the boot of the car.
The Irish Mirror reports the deceased was a 40-year-old local man who had been missing for two weeks.
An appeal by Irish police about his whereabouts has since been stood down.
The man was reportedly the person who rented the vehicle before the woman.
In a statement, Europcar, the parent company, said: "GoCar is assisting An Garda Síochána with its investigation into the tragic incident that occurred earlier this week in Kilkenny.
"We express our deepest condolences to the loved ones of the deceased at this time."
