9.6 ExcellentFeb 22 2018
Great experiencePros: The staff are so kind and helpful. We have only had great experiences with Alamo and this was no different. Easy pickup and drop off.Cons: The vehicle was on the older side and had an after market radio which didn't work all that well. Not a big deal though
7.6 GoodDec 31 2017
CR rentalPros: Swapped out a car with mechanical problem very quickly.Cons: The insurance rates
6.0 GoodAug 2 2017
Read the fine printPros: Relatively cheap Staff was helpful Upgraded for minimum ($5 a day) chargeCons: I wasn't told I needed 3rd party car insurance in Costa Rica (not just collision insurance; apparently it's the law) until I was at the Alamo office trying to pick up my car. This was a complete surprise and about doubled the cost of my rental car. Also, the Alamo office next to San Juan International Airpirt was VERY difficult to find. We spent about an hour driving around and talked to 3 different professionals (and got 3 different locations).
6.8 GoodJul 27 2017
Rate quoted online is not correct!Pros: The car we got was exactly as described online and worked great for our needs. The people we met at the Alamo location in Libera for pick up and in San Jose for drop off were very helpful and extremely accommodating with providing maps and recommendations.Cons: The rate we were quoted online was vastly different from the end price we paid. When we made our reservation online the price was around $150 for our full reservation and once we arrived at the airport in Liberia to pick up the car we were quoted 3 price options that we could choose from ranging from $450 - $660 depending on the insurance coverage we wanted. If we went with the $450 option the car rental location would put a $1,000 hold on our card that would not be lifted for at least 7 business days after we returned the car (and left the country!). We did not feel in any way comfortable with this option and the only way to not have the hold placed on our card was to go with the $660 option, so we did. At the time of pick up we were told these were required insurances/fees put in place by the country of Costa Rica that we had to pay in order to rent the car. At this point, had just traveled 10+ hours, were in a foreign country and had no other means of transportation for the duration of our vacation so had to accept the fees. In my opinion, it was still not an unreasonable total fee for the time we had the car; however, it was extremely misleading to be quoted one price online for our confirmed reservation and then required to pay another upon arrival. I suggest that if possible, this should be rectified so travelers aren't caught off guard in the future.
6.0 GoodMay 11 2017
Don't buy insurance from Kayak!Pros: Alamo has a desk in the airport and a quick shuttle that takes you to the offsite location where the cars are. It's about a 5 min drive in the shuttle. Quick drop off when you're leaving and quick shuttle back to the airport.Cons: The required insurance. I bought insurance from Kayak assuming this was in conjunction with Alamo. It was not. I was required by Alamo to either put a $2500 deposit on my credit card or pay $500 for insurance for the week. I was not allowed to cancel my insurance through Kayak either.
10.0 ExcellentApr 15 2017
GreatPros: All of itCons: None
7.2 GoodApr 10 2017
Pros: Overall experience was good, got the car we requested, all equipment worked wellCons: Pick-up time at the airport going to off-site rental was delayed for quite some time. Also, although price on Kayak was very low, once fees and insurance were added, price was significantly higher.
6.4 GoodFeb 13 2017
Pros: Car worked fine and handled the rough roads well.Cons: The pickup took about an hour even though there was no line. Just really slow. The agent told me that I had to buy insurance coverage for liability, which nearly doubled the total price. If he is right that this is required, there should be a clearer warning when the booking is made online. Even with this insurance, the price was good by U.S. standards, but it was an unpleasant surprise upon arrival.
4.8 OkayFeb 3 2017
Not a good expeiencePros: Not much but employees were cordial and niceCons: Mandated liability insurance when I had already purchased insurance prior to arrival.

DO NOT USE ACE!!!!Pros: NothingCons: I reserved an automatic SUV a week in advance. When I got there they told me they only have manual pickup tucks and told me I was SOL, had no other options and my only choice was take that at the same rate or cancel my reservation. We cancelled and went to Enterprise. Do yourself a favor and avoid at all cost!
10.0 ExcellentJan 2 2018
Solid ExperiencePros: Friendly staff, quick process, and decent price. Made a 10-day reservation for an SUV for about $325, and had to pay the local insurance for the vehicle. In the grand scheme of the cost and everything that went with it, it was totally worth it.

Pros: Reps at both checkout and checkin were goodCons: Car was very old, beaten up and underpowered. REALLY wasn't clear on insurance and it ended up costing A LOT more than expected. I'm not sure why I bought 3rd party insurance, it didn't really save me anything.
4.8 OkayFeb 1 2017
Scam in Costa ricaCons: Car cost 3.5 times my confirmed rate. They tried to charge me 5.5 and I said that's enough. Most of money extra was insurance and additional add ons such as license charge. Never had this experience before. Very low class!
7.2 GoodDec 11 2016
Employees lost our luggagePros: Great car for price and seasonCons: An employee loaded our luggage into another customers car that left with our stuff. It was really tough on us because we were traveling with infant and made our first day a looooooong nightmare. They did help in tracking down our luggage, but it was up to us to make arrangement to to meet up with that customer and go pick up our luggage.
8.4 ExcellentJul 20 2016
Pros: The people were friendly and (thankfully) spoke English. The "Large SUV" (a Suzuki Grand Vitara) met my needs perfectly although I originally got a smaller vehicle not realizing how small it was going to be. I asked if I could get a manual transmission and they did that for me too, which was great. The SUV performed great on dirt roads along the Guanacaste coastal region.Cons: I opted out of insurance when I booked it, and that was probably a mistake. I think it was a lot cheaper if I had booked it online, and without this I had to buy there and it was almost twice the price of the car. That SUCKED.

Beware of uncharges and shady additionsPros: The car itself was fine, I got the exact model I reserved, aside from a couple dings was in very good shape and fairly low mileage. Airport transfer was easy enough, they pick-up curbside and didn't keep me waiting very long.Cons: Aggressively try to upsell you on their insurance plans. Keep in mind, Costa Rica DOES have some fairly strict liability insurance requirements for rental cars. That said, I know the laws in CR and had purchased a full zero-liability insurance policy for my trip. At the time of pick-up, they "maneuvered" their figures when trying to get me to use their insurance plan, which was shady from the get go. My biggest issue was that they DID end up changing me for $78 in insurance (and several other fees) without my permission! I am currently contesting the charge with AMEX, but I ended up being charged over $100 more than the quote from Kayak, without my permission. Shop elsewhere.

Pros: Nice 4wd, clean and reliableCons: Expensive insurance
6.0 GoodFeb 2 2017
Gutless wonderPros: Car was clean and full of gasCons: We rented a Diahatsu Terios 4x4 because we would be taking many very hilly, dirt roads. This car has a small engine and barely made it up many hills. We had to put it in 1st gear all the way up. It was truly a gutless wonder and would recommend renting a 4x4 with a larger engine.
4.4 OkayFeb 1 2017
Cons: Beware - The counter reps will try to sell you the prepaid petrol, stating it is cheaper at Budget than at petrol stations. This is not true. Also decline the damage insurance even if they claim it is 'mandatory'. They're running a scam at this location. The San Jose location clearly advertises that you can decline the insurance if your credit card covers rental insurance - just make sure to have a document from your credit card company (all it takes is a quick phone call) clearly stating that your rental will be covered in Costa Rica.
6.0 GoodJan 22 2017
Pros: car itself was ok. customer service was fine in costa ricaCons: the insurance should be listed when you order the car. or at least provide an estimate. its unfair to blindside the consumer and charge them double. ridiculous as a matter of fact. and if only manual transmissions are available, that should be made clear also. i was stuck driving the entire trip because my girlfriend has never driven manual transmission
6.8 GoodJan 18 2017
False advertisingPros: I initially reserved a full size and regular suv. In the picture for full size it showed what appeared to be a chevy suburban and the regular showed what appeared to be a ford edge. When I arrived at the rental place the full size was a rav4 and the regular was a very small suv. I find this to be false advertising and was very upset. Other than this service was very good. With no adress in costa rica the car rental employees went above and beyond to help us get where we needed to go
4.0 OkayJan 9 2017
Car wasn't great. Slow return servicePros: The pickup service at the airport was fast and the driver was very professional. Check in at the desk was relatively quick, but I have had better in LIR (Alamo). The wifi service was also a great option instead of the GPS unit, although it was 20 USD per day, which seemed excessiveCons: The SUV I rented was an older Daihatsu with one plug for the wifi hotspot or my phone, so I could not charge both at the same time. Overall the car was fairly scratched up and there was a baseball sized hole in the grill. When I returned the car, they have a new return station and the person checking the car makes you wait as he thoroughly checks for dents, scratches, windshield wipers, broken windshield/windows. He also did not use the agreed-upon inspection that showed damage already on the vehicle.
3.6 MediocreJan 3 2017
Bad customer service at the airportPros: The car was fine mechanically.Cons: Hard sell on buying supplemental insurance, charged for roadside safety net that I didn't request, overcharged on my credit card.

Cosata RicaCons: Kayak didn't inform us of all the added expenses there are to renting a car in Costa Rica. What should have been $192 was $424. Very disappointing.
6.8 GoodJan 1 2017
Pros: Car was in good shape and cleanCons: Budget in Costa Rica slapped on a $20 per day tax despite the fact that we had 2 kinds of insurance already. The website said "SUV" large car that would seat 6 people with seat belts and when we arrived they said gave us their version of a large car- a smaller car that seated 5 people. One of us had to ride without s seat belt. Very frustrating!!! We tried to safeguard against both of these and feel very taken advantage of!!!

Poor service at drop offPros: Pick was OK, good services...a little unstructured but wanted to make sure I knew everythingCons: Drop off, paid for full coverage had 2 flats and tried to make me admit to an accident/mark on the car. All I wanted was an apology for all the bald tires and the wanted me to fill out paperwork. I paid for full-all coverage and I should not have had as many issues as I did for that much money
9.2 ExcellentFeb 5 2017
Was nervous about a Costa Rica rental but...Pros: The vehicle was exactly what was advertised. It was a Diahatsu Bego, automatic, all wheel drive, with no bells or whistles. Despite the worst roads I had ever driven on (Monteverde), the vehicle ran like a champ. I was very nervous about check in and check out. We took video of the SUV at checkout. The return was very smooth. They had many vehicles to check in so I'm glad we arrived early.Cons: We used our credit card for collision and paid bought the mandatory liability through National. They insisted it was $24/day (required), when I was told over the phone $12/day. Only when I told him this did he show the options for the two. Ultimately we did go with the 0 deductible $24/day over the 80/20 liability.
8.0 ExcellentJan 1 2017
DisappointedCons: National wouldn't honor the insurance I was encouraged to purchase when I reserved the car online. Total waste of $70!! After loading the car we found out the air conditioner didn't work, had to go though whole check out process again for another car.

Pros: Staff was friendlyCons: Price is incredibly misleading. What I reserved was a week long rental for a SUV. When we finally got to the rental counter, they surprised us with government mandated insurance, which caused the price to skyrocket. By the end of it, the cheapest option we had, which was “insurance” that still has us liable for all damages and expenses to the sum of $500+ for a week. Had I known the total price before booking, I wouldn’t have even bothered. Look elsewhere for a car rental.
6.0 GoodSep 5 2019
Pros: Car was relatively new, drop-off was easyCons: WAY More expensive than online quote. They fail to mention that even if you purchase insurance you still need to buy another 3rd party insurance at almost $40/day. Brakes squeaked all week

Kayak good - Allianz Travel Insurance Policy - InvalidPros: Kayak- is a good rental place, the only issue was the car on the picture (Toyota RAV 4) is the bigger modle than the one offered (Daihatsu Terios). I must admit, this is confusing, so upon arrival we had to upgrade. (5-people and luggage) For people who want to rent cars to travel Costa Rica!!!!!! Just rent the car and get the insurance locally. Original offer $97.72 (car) + Allianz insurance $117 = $216 Officiall end total = $745Cons: Allianz Travel Insurance policy - One receives an offer for a travel insurance policy from a renown company, this is a scam. This insurance policy is not valid in Costa Rica. Third party insurances are not accepted in Costa Rica. I dont understand why this happens in 2017 and why Kayak does not mention this. Please find attached a copy of my mail to Allianz who have not responded so far and to file a claim as we all know becomes more and more difficutl to put people off to file claims. Dear Ladies and Gentlemen Upon arrival in Costa Rica I was deeply alarmed and shocked that this kind of scam still exists. This was a rather negative start to the awaited holiday. It gives the country a negative touch, although you are the ones that should know better and are responsible. The rental car which I booked is fine, but the Insurance which you sold me is not accepted. There is only one insurance accepted here and this is the Costa Rican one which is Government designated! The car rental companies do not accept 3'rd parties into which category you are. Please kindly clarify and state why you as a worldwide operating insurance company sell customers these insurance policies.I was required to buy a new insurance (local) otherwise they would not have given me the rental car. I have documents proving that third party insurances are not valid in Costa Rica. In the year 2017 issues like this should not occur to a renown company like yours. Kindly awaiting your response and the reimbursement of the insurance costs. Best regards

Blindsided by "Required Insurance Coverage"Cons: When I made my online reservation for a vehicle in Liberia, Costa Rica I was quoted a rate of $112 USD. I also checked with my credit card company to verify that I was covered for insurance, liability and collision, when using my credit card as the payment form for the transaction. When checking in to pick up my vehicle at the Liberia Thrifty location I was told that the government of Costa Rica requires renters to purchase this insurance which more than tripled my rental price from the quoted $112 to $375!!! No where on the online reservation site was there any mention of the required insurance coverage or the outrageous cost of this coverage! Thrifty should make more of this ripoff!!!

Insurance Scam and damage scam--awfulPros: Our vehicle was fine and available but had many scratches and a dented bumper.Cons: We were forced to pay for full coverage insurance from thrifty at the counter by the agent. We had already purchased insurance thru Allianz when we booked online. This was refused. We had to pay an additional 45$ per day on top of our plan we already paid for. We refused and they wouldn't give us a car or lesser basic option. Since it was late at night with a child and we were offsite we felt very vulnerable with no great options. Our quote of 301$ became 698$ plus 90$ we already paid. When we returned the manage told us there was a basic package for 17$ per day. Also they blamed us for a dent in bumper which was another scam. We had photos to dispute. We were not charged since we had full coverage but if we hadn't they planned to hit us up for that too. Still waiting to hear back from management at Thrifty Liberia. Stay away and document any damage w photos when checking out. Always worth it.

Bait and Switch!Pros: NothingCons: The online price was $122. The note said that we may be required to pay for insurance at the desk; typical insurance was $12-$14/day. Research said that my Collision Damage Waiver on my credit card would not be honored unless I had a letter from the company stating it would be honored in Costa Rica. I had that in hand and still they would not accept it. The total I would have had to pay? $464! We walked away, hired a driver/taxi whenever we wanted to go somewhere and still saved money. I will not book a car through Kayak ever again.

Gov't Required Insurance is 2x as much as the rentPros: Close to airport with easy shuttle transfers.Cons: We arrived in the evening with a full-size SUV reservation, I do not believe we had a full-size as it was the last car in the lot, still we paid full price and the insurance is insane! Not their fault but they could warn you before you arrive, wont let you rent without it

Embarrassing service. Never renting from Thrifty aPros: Nothing. They didn't show and didn't answer the phone. Even after I called to confirm before we let.Cons: No shuttle was at the airport. Nobody answered and we ended up having to pay $600 and rented a car all week that we didn't want. Thanks thrifty- you made me spend almost half of my budget for the week on a car we didn't want- all because you lied to me.

Pros: Kayak sold us the rental and insurance for one price and when we got there it was more then double we are so upset about the drastic cost difference we didn't figure that cost and it affected are whole vacation. Kayak should be more aware of the outside country costs and that you can't buy USA insurance for an out of country car! Disgusted and feel a refund from kayak would be the right thing for kayak to do!!!!

Made us purchase insurance twice.Pros: Car was what we expected.Cons: The rate that we were given was not the rate that they made us pay. We paid for the extra insurance when we booked online and when we got to Avis they said that they wouldn't take that insurance, even after we showed proof of it. We rented the car with our credit card that also had insurance, but they made us pay $29 extra per day in insurance. They said that was the basic rate and wouldn't let us take the car without it. So we paid for insurance twice. We watched as they did it to the guy who came behind us too. We researched it and we had the right to refuse but then they had the right to refuse our rental. We were in the country with kids and couldn't be stuck without a car so they had us in a catch 22. We paid the extra money, but for a 7 day rental it was nearly twice the original amount. We rent yearly in Costa Rica, and never had this happen. Will never use Avis in Costa Rica again.

6.8 GoodJul 1 2018
Pros: Friendly staff and good serviceCons: Full price of rental not disclosed. Huge tax added that was three times the cost of the rental
3.6 MediocreMar 11 2018
Cons: The car was inferior to the quality suggested in the application and they didnt want to admit it at time of check in also the rate of $165 for 5 days ended up being over $400 after all the insurance fees that the same company wants you to pay.

Cons: Our plane arrived in Liberia, Costa Rica at around the time we had informed the agency. When we came in front, there were numerous vendors holding signs from the other car agencies, but no one from Payless. More than one of those vendors called Payless for us but no one answered. One of the vendors had an office near Payless and they told us that no one was in that office. We had to rent a different car.

Pros: NOTHINGCons: When we arrived to pick up the van we were told that it was not available. We had to find a different company to rent from. NOT HAPPY!!!
3.2 MediocreApr 15 2017
Cons: We we totally shocked by the requirement to buy insurance in Costa Rica, which literally quadrupled the cost of our car. I feel like we were tricked into buying the supplemental insurance with Allianz, which turned out to be worthless in Costa Rica, which has a country-based requirement that you buy local insurance.

Absolutely terrible!! Stay away!Pros: Nothing considering they had no car for usCons: Made a reservation for a minivan. Arrived in Liberia at 5pm. Called Payless to send a shuttle for us and they told us they had no cars left for rental. Another group we were with had a reservation too. We ended up having to rent a 12 passenger mini bus from another company for a lot more money. Payless representative was rude and not helpful at all. Never again.
8.0 ExcellentFeb 20 2017
Pros: It would have been better if the website warned about Costa rica' s car insurance policies other then that it was great

Confirmed, but no car.Pros: They helped call around to find another rental agency that had a car for us around the same price point. It didn't work though because their age policy was different.Cons: There was no car. We went to pick it up and they hadn't received our request and didn't even have the caright we reserved.

Cons: Poor communication about the whole process, the insurance. Did not feel like they were looking out for my best interests after I was involved in an accident which was completely the other persons fault.

Deceiving Insurance PolicyPros: By the time we arrived to Hertz in Costa Rica, we already purchased an insurance policy via Allianz, a reputable company that we have used for medical coverage as well. Hertz would not accept this policy and forced us to purchase their own at a higher value. From $99 to $245 dollars. I thought that was not acceptable and at this moment pursuing a reimbursement.
