Alamo service at sjo was very good and I was happy with my car. Only complaint is the location is a little far from the airport. Frequent shuttles, but with traffic it took about 20 mins.

The staff at Dollar was very friendly! Just something like paying extra if you have something for it and it comes to court, if you are not present, you will be found guilty anyway .. Unless you pay 'this' extra .. but that is always that we have 2 to 300 € have to pay extra on the spot. We are no longer afraid of that, it is true in every country, at every rental company ..

Our Mitsubishi Montero had 83 tkm on the clock, but was in a condition that I first estimated it to be 200 tkm. He was completely bungled and scratched, inside some trim parts had fallen off. Maybe that was not so bad for a tour in Costa Rica, you will not notice ... The staff was as uninterested and rude as in all branches of international car rental companies. At Car del Mar we obviously made a bargain, so the value for money was not that bad.

Dollar car hire in San Jose is a few minutes from the airport. Transfers went off quickly. Handover went fast. Unfortunately, it is also trying to sell their own insurance with vigor. I got a car in the next higher class.

Costa Rica law requires a special Liability insurance that can’t be refused. This insurance was more expensive at Payless than other car rentals and out it made our $20 per day rental over $60. When comparing rental car companies be sure you know the out the door price.

The website said total bill would be one amount but when we got there, we found there was an additional $250 worth of liability insurance absolutely required. That should have been revealed in the total cost of the car rent.

The trip started out rough with Costa Rica guidelines being insurance scams galore. I was able to overcome that fiasco and then started my adventure. Within 30 minutes on the expressway I realized my vehicle needed service. The steering wheel wobbled terribly on the highway. I got to the beach and didn't need the vehicle much so it did not matter. Once I drove to Santa Theresa I realized the jeep was going to break. I called up Payless and they brought a new version of the same vehicle. It worked great from that point forward.

  • Book as far in advance as possible. You will usually save more and get the car of your choice
  • Compare and contrast the rates for a few suppliers on the type of car you want
  • Be aware of any cost for an added driver, fuel policy, and mileage limits. That way you will know the true cost before you rent your car

How old do I have to be to book a car in San Jose?

You can rent a vehicle in San Jose if you are at least 21. However, you'll most likely be charged an additional fee if you are under 25. Also note, the age restriction may be different for premium, large capacity, SUVs, or other higher category vehicles. Check with the rental car company before you book.

What rental car companies are at San Jose Airport?

You'll find 11 rental companies at the San Jose Airport. Rent from suppliers like ACE, Dollar, Sixt, and Alamo, to name a few. With so many terrific options, you are certain to get the car and the price that you desire.

Is insurance necessary for San Jose rental cars?

You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in San Jose. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover) generally provide some coverage. However, they usually have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to San Jose. Additionally, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout if you are a citizen of the U.S.

What forms of ID do I need to bring picking up my vehicle?

No matter the supplier you go with, you'll need to bring your credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What is the fuel policy on my rental car?

We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your rental topped off. If you return the rental with less fuel than you began with, the company may charge a premium to top it off. To avoid any added expenses, you should fill up your tank before you return the car.

Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in San Jose?

San Jose certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the must-sees in San Jose. If you have your heart set on seeing as much as you can, you will need unlimited miles to take in as much as you can while on your trip.

Can I get a one-way rental for my San Jose trip?

Many car rental suppliers offer one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another location. Be aware there may be a supplementary charge when you pick one-way.

What sort of car rental should I get for my trip to San Jose?

That all depends on your needs and what you will be doing. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size or SUV will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their San Jose vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
