Pros: Check in and check out were fast
Cons: Car could be in better condition ( probably it suffered a small crash in the previous rentals)
Pros: Car had good air conditioning that got us comfortable quickly in the Costa Rican heat
Cons: Bait and switch pricing, wound up being forced to pay an additional $25 a day on top of the insurance I paid when I reserved the car
Cons: everything was excellent
Cons: I would like to point out that our car rental was not in San Antonio, but in San Jose, Costa Rica. We were incredibly disappointed to discover that our rental had been given to someone else, and the company did not have any other car available to give us. Will not be using this co. again.
Cons: AVIS added a mandatory fee for insurance that was equally high as the advertised rental price. It doesn't make much sense to advertise a price for a rental if it's not possible to rent the vehicle for that price or anything close to it.
Pros: Drop off process was quick and easy.
Cons: I was sold collision insurance during the online checkout process only to be told at the counter that the insurance was worthless in Costa Rica and I should call and cancel. However I couldn't call to cancel since the international call would have cost more than the $9/day. Ka-yak=Ripoff! Never agai
Cons: Forced us to subscribe their expensive insurance despite having paid one online
Deceiving info in Kayak
Cons: Kayak said Avis pickup was at terminal. Which is false , we had to take a 10 min shuttle Kayak offered insurance which wss not with Avis , so I ended up paying Kayaks insurance plus Avis insurance
Pros: Friendly and great customer service
Poor condition of car and equipment
Cons: The car had a very bad smell to it and the GPS we rented did not work.
Insurance will get you
Pros: Car is exactly what we had expected and requested, looked great at first
Cons: Quoted on Kayak as rather cheap, but after the required insurance purchase, turned out to be 3X as much as the initial cost.
Good car. Bad service
Pros: Car was high quality. Comfortable.
Cons: Extra charges. Bad service. Simply a ripoff
