What you need to know about car rentals
How do I find the best prices on a Guanacaste Alamo car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. However, booking well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I carry with me when I pick up my vehicle in Guanacaste?
Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Guanacaste's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Guanacaste is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Alamo's policy to determine what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Guanacaste?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Guanacaste. Economy or compact cars are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Guanacaste trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does Costa Rica require car insurance?
In Costa Rica you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Guanacaste. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Alamo require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Alamo does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Alamo. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Guanacaste certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Guanacaste.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different Alamo. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
