Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Jaco Budget car rental at a great price?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, booking your car well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Jaco?
You will need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Jaco's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Jaco is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Budget's policies to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Jaco?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Jaco. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Jaco trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Costa Rica?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Budget in Costa Rica. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Jaco. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Budget does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full to full policy. You should receive your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Budget.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Jaco certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Jaco.
Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?
Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different Budget. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
