The agent was pushing hard to sell up graded car, insurance,GPS, etc. I purchased insurance through car and the agent said in the event of an accident I would have to stay in country until everything was settled or pay out of pocket. The GPS rental was almost as much as the car.

When arriving at Alamo in Costa Rica, we discovered that the insurance sold by car rentals is not valid for the rentals! We ended up paying twice the indicated price that car rentals had advertised !!! The pick up was fine. The car in the premium category did not even had the automatic air conditioning, or rear detector, no gps.... Drop-off be aware that you need to take a shuttle and if you get in at the wrong time you may need to wait because not every one can fit in.

The reception at the airport was very friendly and with the shuttle bus we were quickly at the landlord. Although there were no other customers at the pickup in the late evening, the administrative process was only resinous. Obviously the lady at the counter was overwhelmed with the process. The Nissan X-Trail was our reservation but the car was very old and scratched / dented. In addition, the interior was dirty / stained. Our request for a car change was not heard, although other vehicles were ready to pick up. The return was fast, uncomplicated and professional. The shuttle bus took us to the airport immediately. Top!

Service was excellent and unlike other car rentals in SAN Jose there was no hassle on insurance. I have gold card and hone insurance coverage and was not pressed to pay for that again but I watched others helplessly seeing a $100 bargain become a $500 millstone on check out and check back the service was fast and friendly. Better than most others I have dealt with. No hesitation in recommending National.
