What you need to know for the road
How do I get a Jaco Hertz rental car at a great rate?
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. However, reserving your car ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What do I need to bring when I get my vehicle in Jaco?
You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Jaco?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Jaco is 21. Take time to go over Hertz's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Jaco?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Jaco. 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 on longer trips. Those looking for a little luxury on their Jaco getaway can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Costa Rica require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Costa Rica. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Hertz car rental?
Hertz does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Jaco. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Hertz rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with the needle at "F". If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Hertz. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Jaco definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Hertz offer one-way rentals in Jaco?
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
