Alamo Car Rentals in Alajuela: What you need to know

Alajuela is just one of many neighborhoods in San Jose that are worth exploring, and, you will want a vehicle to check out all there is to do in this city. Local buses, while affordable, drop you off far from your destination. Ride hailing is convenient, but you'd be surprised by how many cities they don't serve. Additionally, the cost of going from here to there can really add up.

If you want the convenience to go where you need to at a fantastic rate, then you are in the right place. CarRentals.com works with some of the best rental car companies. Alamo opened its doors in 1974 and introduced the concept of Unlimited Free Mileage. Alamo strives to provide high-value, low-cost rentals to leisure and family travelers.

Frequently asked questions about renting a car

How do I get an Alajuela Alamo rental car at a great price?

CarRentals.com always strives to get you the best deal. However, there are ways to get an even lower price on your upcoming rental:

  • Compare vehicle pricing before you book
  • Try to avoid airport pick-ups and drop-offs, which usually cost more
  • Know ahead of time how much fuel/mileage you may use
  • Search and reserve in advance

A bit of knowledge goes a long way to increase your savings.

What documents should I bring when I pick up my vehicle in Alajuela?

You'll need to bring your credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What is the minimum age to rent a car?

Most suppliers, like Alamo, require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. However, you may find that there is an additional fee if you are under the age of 25 or for larger or higher category vehicles in particular. Go through Alamo's to figure out what the exact rate will be before you book your vehicle

What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip?

That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Alajuela. If you are having difficulty picking the right car, make sure to read over the chart below. We've compared the most popular vehicle categories for you:

Car TypeBest forCategory includes
LuxuryWhen you really want to treat yourself on your trip to AlajuelaMercedes C-Class, Cadillac XTS, or similar
SUVBig groups that need room for all their suitcasesToyota Rav 4, Dodge Grand Caravan, or similar
HybridThose that want a quiet and comfortable ride with great fuel economyBMW i3, Kia Optima, or similar

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Costa Rica?

Many countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy interim insurance through the Alamo. Most credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) will cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you travel to San Jose.

Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Alamo car rental?

Alamo, like several other rental car agencies, requires a deposit upon reservation. The amount can vary greatly based on the size of the car. Additionally, make sure you have enough on your credit card to cover a deposit.

Do I have to fill up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?

At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle topped off. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Alamo. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Can I get unlimited mileage when renting a car in Alajuela?

Many suppliers provide unlimited miles, but you want to ensure it's part of your package that you are purchasing. It's useful to know how much you want to drive so you can plan your trip in advance. Although most rental car suppliers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your rental agreement, you could face additional cost. You may want unlimited miles if you are thinking of taking some road trips to explore everything that is in San Jose.

Reserve Your Ride Today!

With everything there is to do in San Jose, having access to your own auto lets you sightsee at your own pace. When you are ready to check out more of Costa Rica, you can drive wherever you want, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or memorizing a bus schedule.

Before you head out of town, book your Alamo Alajuela rental car and take off to all the items on your itinerary. Go with CarRentals.com and hit the streets in San Jose, Costa Rica.
