THINGS YOU SHOULD UNDERSTAND ABOUT COSTA RICAN CAR RENTAL

  • For all quotes in Costa Rica make sure they include the mandatory basic insurance (a government requirement for all rentals - all rental insurance in Costa Rica is provided by the government run INS agency). The insurance can be reduced a little if you take CDW (Collision Damage waiver) coverage on your credit card. Check with your card company if your credit card covers CDW in Costa Rica. If you get a quote from the internet (e.g. Expedia) and the price is too good to be true, they forgot to include the mandatory insurance.
  • If you want to remove the deductible, you will need to add the zero deductible insurance we will quote you for all cars. You can decide these at the time the car is delivered.
  • The English speaking agent delivering the car can help you with any insurance options, wifi hotspot or GPS - let us know ahead of time if you want the GPS or wifi . We have excellent maps at the hotel for purchase in addition to the free car rental map.
  • If you want to do a one way rental just let us know where you'd like to leave the car. By arrangement with Alamo, our guests have no drop off charge if they leave the car at an Alamo office or at the Pura Vida Hotel or pretty much anywhere in the neighborhood. Email us with your car rental questions. Happy to help.

Just email us for your quote.
