KAYAK

Pros:

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

KAYAK

Pros:

Relatively cheap Staff was helpful Upgraded for minimum ($5 a day) charge

Cons:

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 Good

Jul 2017

KAYAK

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.

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.

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:

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.

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.

I have rented a car previously in Costa Rica. You have to understand that the price you are going to pay will be more them what you see here. They have a national insurance that is required no matter whether you have coverage on your credit card or your personal insurance. It typically adds $12-$13 additional per day. They also have other insurances that are OPTIONAL. You have to be careful because many unscrupulous rental agencies will try to tack these on additionally. If your credit card or insurance will cover you for renting the car then you need to bring documentation of such and show them to the rental agency. At National, as soon as I showed them this documentation I was able to decline the other VERY EXPENSIVE optional coverages. At some other agencies, this was not quite as easy and I did end up having to pay for some of the additional coverages despite the documentation. Make sure you do your research before you rent a car in Costa Rica. It definitely is different than renting it in the States.

Terrible check in experience. Charged 3 times the cost of car for insurance at pickup. Took nearly an hour to get checked in with only two customers in front of us. Other customers left unhappy too due to hidden fees and not having 4x4 vehicles that were requested. Beat up car but mechanically sound. Definitely avoid!

This is a scam. Rental car is asking separate insurance through them which they quoted $980.00 despite me buying comprehensive insurance through Kayak/ Allianz. Also they wanted $3000 deposit.

Pros:

Staff was friendly

Cons:

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.

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.

I am a loyal Avis customer; my company uses it as a preferred rental car company, and I have always been happy with the customer service and transparency I have received by Avis and its employees. At the moment I am with my spouse on a corporate retreat in Costa Rica and today we went to the Avis office at the Liberia International Airport to pick up a car that we had reserved through the Avis website. The person at the front desk was very polite and helped us checkout our rental. However, when time came to buy car insurance, while we were aware of the need to purchase the government-mandated SLI and we were very happy to pay its cost, the employee refused to accept my credit card insurance. We discussed this issue for a while, in a friendly manner. The Avis employee explained to us that we would need a letter from my credit card company (i offered both my Visa and my American Express cards to cover insurance) that confirms the coverage offered by them. We were caught by surprise by this request since there had been no mention of the need to present this letter in any of the communications that I had received by Avis, otherwise I would have been happy to ask Visa or AE for it. As you can imagine, at that point we were in a very uncomfortable position at the front of a line of other customers and under pressure to get to our final destination. So, left with no other options, we felt we were pressured by Avis to purchase one of the daily options for CDW. Which coverage, when I looked into the fine print, has a much lower coverage and a higher deductible than the one offered by my credit card. It seems that this is a very deceptive and unfair business practice that Avis Costa Rica is using with its customers. This is no way of honoring the name of Avis worldwide and leaves your loyal customers with a bad taste in our mouth, feeling as if we had been deceived.

Be prepared and it will be a mediocre experience - expect arguments. 1: Bring letter from Credit Card Company with your name and last 4# outlining coverage or you will pay for additional daily coverage (we did this thank god) 2: You will pay minimum 16.99/day mandatory CR govt insurance - just know that in advance (that was rate for Nissan Versa) 3: Video walk around of car - these guys are shiesters (argued with me for 15 minutes about a preexisting ding that was noted on the prerental inspection because it was drawn on top of bumper instead of middle of bumper) 4: Argue the 12% fee they try and tack on I think it was called “convience” or something along those lines.

Beware: After a lot of hidden fees, they will charge you somewhere between 50% - 75% more than any deal you get on line. Additionally, if you reserve a mid sized car, you’ll be lucky to get a compact car, in decent shape.

Worst rental car company out there, reviews are bad aswell but it makes sense. Got quoted at $180 online and when we got there it was $254, everything said and done we returned the car and now theres another $224 charge on my partners credit card ontop of the $254. Avoid this company like the plague. Please try some other company.

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!!!!

My prepaid insurance through your website was not honored. I had to spend $250 extra just on the insurance. The car was 5 years old and beat up. It had 110000 kilometers on the odometer. I reserved automatic and I was offered a manual transmission for the same money. Major disappointment. Also they requested $1,000.00 deposit!!! That’s way far from the industry standard.

I had a reservation booked for 4 months. We showed up in Liberia, Costa Rica to be told that they didn’t have a car and couldn’t provide a replacement. We saw at least 3 other groups that Firefly said this to within a 10 minute period. We were told by a different car rental agency that Firefly did have cars but our rate was too low so they were saying they didn’t have the cars to then turn around and rent them at a higher rate. This complete flake on our car rental reservation cost us an extra $1,000

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.

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.

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

Pros:

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.

KAYAK

Pros:

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 = $745

Cons:

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

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!!!

Top tips for hiring a car in Liberia

  • While there are shuttle and bus services that bring visitors into the city from the airport or other locations, public transportation within Liberia is limited, making taxis one of the most viable modes of transport. By securing a Liberia car rental, travelers can have the autonomy and flexibility to travel throughout the city without being restricted by ride availability and without having to waste time waiting for a ride to arrive. What’s more, independent vehicles will put off-the-beaten-path locations within reach and will allow travelers to determine arrival and departure times for outings. Coupled with the affordability of rental vehicles in Liberia, the option is also cost-effective.
  • The Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport, otherwise referred to as the Liberia Costa Rica Airport (LIR), hosts several car rental kiosks for rental companies, including Enterprise, Budget, Avis, National, Sixt, and Europcar, among others. There are representatives for the companies at the airport, so whether you have a reservation or not, you can usually grab a car rental in Liberia from here. As you’re exiting the terminal, you’ll find rental desks to the far left of the building, with vehicles in the adjacent parking lot.
  • The road systems throughout Costa Rica were updated to include stoplights at several intersections where previously there had only been stop signs, however, in many of these updated locations, the original stop signs were not removed, so the intersection includes both forms of traffic instruction. If you come across such an intersection while driving your car rental in Liberia, you will want to take heed of the traffic light—if the light indicates green, proceed through the intersection without stopping.
  • The months of January through early May tend to be peak tourist season in Liberia since these are the driest months of the year. Travelers can expect roadways to be more congested during these periods, especially given the fact that limited public transportation options encourage visitors to rent personal vehicles. Drivers in rental cars should stay alert on these more crowded roadways, particularly when it comes to buses and 18-wheelers, as they often do not yield to passenger cars—it is recommended to let these types of vehicles pass. Also stay alert for motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
  • Book your rental car in Liberia at least 5 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Liberia are around 13% cheaper than other car types, on average
