Cons:Beware - The counter reps will try to sell you the prepaid petrol, stating it is cheaper at Budget than at petrol stations. This is not true. Also decline the damage insurance even if they claim it is 'mandatory'. They're running a scam at this location. The San Jose location clearly advertises that you can decline the insurance if your credit card covers rental insurance - just make sure to have a document from your credit card company (all it takes is a quick phone call) clearly stating that your rental will be covered in Costa Rica.Reviewed 1 Feb. 2017

Costa Rica car rentalCons:Be careful in Costa Rica if you are quoted $300 for a week it will end up to be at least $600. Lots of hidden feesReviewed 28 Mar. 2017

Location descriptionPros:The vehicle was good, just as booked.Cons:Location description is wrong. Listing says airport location for both pickup and drop off. Off location- drop off location was difficult to find.Reviewed 3 Dec. 2016

Pros:car itself was ok. customer service was fine in costa ricaCons:the insurance should be listed when you order the car. or at least provide an estimate. its unfair to blindside the consumer and charge them double. ridiculous as a matter of fact. and if only manual transmissions are available, that should be made clear also. i was stuck driving the entire trip because my girlfriend has never driven manual transmissionReviewed 22 Jan. 2017

Hidden mandatory Insurance charges and BS Gas CharPros:Car was in good shape and did well on roads.Cons:Kayak quoted a price that did not include the mandatory $20/day insurance so there was a perception that Budget was less than others when that was untrue and misleading. At inspextion I was charged for 1/8 of tank when barely 15 miles were used from full. Never using budget or Kayak again.Reviewed 15 Dec. 2016

Pros:Car was in good shape and cleanCons:Budget in Costa Rica slapped on a $20 per day tax despite the fact that we had 2 kinds of insurance already. The website said "SUV" large car that would seat 6 people with seat belts and when we arrived they said gave us their version of a large car- a smaller car that seated 5 people. One of us had to ride without s seat belt. Very frustrating!!! We tried to safeguard against both of these and feel very taken advantage of!!!Reviewed 1 Jan. 2017

Terrible!Pros:The car was nice, but the price went up and up...Cons:There were too many fees at the counter. They even charged us $40 for pickup/dropoff from airport which is like 2 minutes away...Reviewed 6 Sep. 2016

Hidden FeesPros:The car was clean and the staff was friendly.Cons:I booked the car for a total of $76 - I even confirmed this over the phone with an agent. When I arrived, they added $19/day for insurance that was "required" in Costa Rica. This was NOT STATED ANYWHERE. I declined coverage twice and they still insisted it was mandatory. I would like my money back. Also, it was listed that this location was onsite at the airport - it was not. I had to wait 15 min for a shuttle and it was a 5 min drive offsite.Reviewed 1 Aug. 2016

Gutless wonderPros:Car was clean and full of gasCons:We rented a Diahatsu Terios 4x4 because we would be taking many very hilly, dirt roads. This car has a small engine and barely made it up many hills. We had to put it in 1st gear all the way up. It was truly a gutless wonder and would recommend renting a 4x4 with a larger engine.Reviewed 2 Feb. 2017

The damn insurance got me againPros:The car itself, as well as the pickup and dropoff were easy.Cons:Every time I travel to Latin America, I try to avoid the inevitable Insurance hassle at the counter. I never win. This time I purchased the insurance from Allianz that Kayak suggested. I thought that would cover the mandatory 3rd party coverage in Costa Rica. False! It did not. And when I arrived at 11pm, I was forced to accept a $28/day insurance charge—more than the cost of the car rental! Having to pay an extra $250, plus the extra 90 I dropped on the useless insurance I bought from Kayak/Allianz, will never leave me satisfied. For $500, I could have had private drivers for the entire week.Reviewed 6 Aug. 2016

Cosata RicaCons:Kayak didn't inform us of all the added expenses there are to renting a car in Costa Rica. What should have been $192 was $424. Very disappointing.Reviewed 3 Jan. 2017
