I ordered a automatic transmission and when I got there they rented out my reserved van, and gave me a 5 speed which was difficult to drive with my leg injury. And I brought the van back early and they said I would have a credit instead of refunding me the $108 This is the first time I have rented with Alamo national in El Salvador and it would be my last,

Friendly staff.Better disclosure regarding required coverage. Would have also rented a vehicle with more horse power given that I explored way outside of the city.

N/AAlamo did not honor the vehicle level i had reserved. I reserved a Kia Rio or equivalent and when i got there i was offered a Kia Picanto an told me that they were the same level. Defínete Kia Picanto is a smaller vehicle. They told me that if i wanted a Kia Rio i had to pay an upgrade. My reservation clearly said Kia Rio and i show my reservation. I didn’t pick up my vehicle and had to rent a vehicle with another agency. It was a very bad experience and had to spend more than what i had planned. I saw other custommers having the same issues, not a good practice.

I just liked the staff was available and ready on time both during pick up and drop off.The car they gave me was a Hyundai smal car with mechanic transmission. Very uncomfortable and small. I understand economic cars are economic but this was extremely below the economic average.

Very bad experience.
2.0 Mediocre9 Mar 2022
I was suppose to pay $65 at counter at pickup. They had no record of the 77 dollars I already paid with you! And told me that KAYAK was a scam and I shouldn’t have bought insurance at time of booking with kayak. I ended up paying 295 dollars for rental w their insurance when initial agreement was 165 for rental an insurance when I booked with You Kayak. Also they held 450 of my money. The car they brought me was beat up and not even road worthy. Had to wait for another car. Then spent the majority of my vacation trying to get a hold of KSYAK CUDTOMER SERVICE TO FINF OUT DHI TOOK MY 77 dollars. Still do not no where this money went. Fast forward when time to drop off no one was there to receive car at 530am as agreed and had to leave key under the mat . Very very very bad experience with budget and KAYAK

They didn’t have the vehicle I requested available. So I was given a microbus. However that required a special insurance, I was charged $90 extra. This is on top of an insurance we had already purchased, but no problem extra insurance wouldn’t hurt. They also put a $900 hold on the account, that they would return 7-10 days after drop off. That was all the money we had for this trip. I was never told about this $900 hold or we would have gone a different route as far as renting a car.

I booked the van 3 months before my vacation. They told me that the van was not available and that there was nothing they could do. I did my check in a day before to confirm. Had confirmation number and everything. I also called a week before but no one picked up. Horrible experience. Will never book again

When I get to the airport (already have had a pick up truck reserved since 4 months before) they tell me they dont have any pick ups or bigger sized vehicles at all. Had to get a taxi home and look for another vehicle in my city the next day. DO NO MAKE RESERVATIONS HERE IT IS NOT GUARANTEED!!!!
2.0 Mediocre23 Nov 2019
There were no vehicle available of the type I had reserves. They did not offer any compatible. At budget el salvadorI had reserved a month and budget el Salvador did not have any pick up trucos and did not información me until I emailed a question about pricing.

The pick up counter was not open by the time we arrived. Now it states it opens and 6 and we did not see anybody till 640 am. The other thing is that when I booked I bought the coverage insurance but when at the counter they did not accept this and we needed to get a salvadorean insurance. It. Cost 250 dollars more for this. So the price seen is not the actual price.
2.0 Mediocre6 Jul 2022
These people are a ripoff. They give you one price and once you are there, they increase it by a huge amount what they called "insurance" Never again.

nothingBooked my car for 7. Call a day before to Avis customer service who confirm my reservation and car availability. Arrive to San Salvador and there is no car to accommodate me nor can they do anything about it. Worst experience ever, being stranded with no transportation.
2.0 Mediocre23 May 2021
Didn't have a car for me despite reservation. Apparently this is common. Highly annoying and disruptive start to a trip. Arrived so late there's weren't even cabs or Ubers. Was able to hitch a ride to town with a friendly local. Otherwise not sure what I would have done.There could have been a car, just like what I reserved!
2.0 Mediocre23 May 2021
There was no agent present at the airport and no car so nothing to likeReservation had been confirmed, received three e-mails regarding the confirmed reservation. Arriving at the airport, no agent available, no local phone numbers did answer. Avis service desk was not able to provide assistance. Had to take a taxi and book a hotel. Next morning, no local phones being answered, checked again with Avis service desk and been informed that there were no cars available at this location. This can be rather disturbing if you have obligations to meet and are depending of transportation. No explanation or apologise received from the side of Avis. For me this is a huge middle finger towards clients.

Top tips for renting a car at San Salvador El Salvador Intl Airport

  • The most convenient way to get from San Salvador El Salvador Intl Airport into the city is by rental car. A rented car will enable you to explore San Salvador at your own schedule and pace. Further, driving yourself in a rental car will give you the advantage of accessing areas that public transport cannot. While behind the wheel and in the comfort of your rented car, you can head for San Luis Talpa or drive to La Libertad to enjoy the fantastic surf beaches during your vacation in El Salvador’s capital city.
  • San Salvador El Salvador Intl Airport car rental companies are a little bit strict when it comes to the minimum age someone can rent a car. With that being said, you should be at least 21 years old to rent a car at SAL Airport. However, there’s a surcharge fee for car renters aged below 25, which is payable at the car rental desk during the pick-up time. Make sure to consult with your respective car supplier to know more about underage charges before you reserve a car rental at San Salvador El Salvador Intl Airport.
  • You may save some money by choosing the "pick-up and return full-tank" policy for car rental at San Salvador El Salvador Airport. This means that you need to return the rented car with the same quantity of fuel as it had during the pick-up time. Quite a number of car agencies usually charge for less fuel when their rental cars are returned. You may also avoid a one-way fee by picking up and dropping off your car rental at the same hour.
  • The most appropriate time to rent a car at SAL is the same day you arrive at the airport. The same-day car rental gives you an opportunity to enjoy relatively lower rates than booking in advance. Weekdays car rental rates are also lower than the average rental rates on weekends. The month of September comes in as the best time of the year to make an advance car reservation due to the lowest prices.
  • Book your rental car at San Salvador El Salvador Intl Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
