Home pro, the staff do not try to survive at all costs insurance or an upgrade, proposal of wifi in the car optional (a bit expensive but it can be used in this country where cellular data are overpriced), new car, clean and corresponding to the resa. Only small downside a shuttle is required from the airport (contrary to what is indicated on the site autoescape).

The agent was pushing hard to sell up graded car, insurance,GPS, etc. I purchased insurance through car rentals.com 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 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.

The car was already well used, but perfect for the rough roads of Costa Rica. The car had a flat Resevereife, which resulted in our Reifennpanne to an unpleasant situation. Europcar paid the damage although we did not call you

How do I get the cheapest deal on a car rental at the San Jose Airport?

CarRentals.com is the site to start ironing out all the details for your vacation to San Jose. You can sort out your transportation in advance, and ensure you receive the best possible deal from the rental company. Looking to keep your cost down? Try to:

  • 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.
