5.2 Fair

Oct. 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Car (Hyundai Tucson) was clean and worked great for the 3 days I had it.

Cons:

My experience with Economy Rent-a-Car was great at first and awful at the end! In the Quepos office, the attendant took care of all the paperwork, and we reviewed the car for dents and scratches that were already present so I wouldn't be responsible for them upon returning the car. The car, a Hyundai Tucson, worked great throughout the trip and I had zero problems. 3 days later, when I returned the car to the airport location in San Jose, the attendant opened the trunk and reviewed the spare tire. I had no flats or any problems with the car, and never looked at the spare. Lo and behold the spare, while still 100% inflated, was dirty and had a big gash on it. The attendant says "looks like you changed the tire after putting this gash in it!". This was all to my dismay, as I had no problems and NEVER looked at the spare or was shown it by the Economy attendant at the pickup location. I explained this to him to which he replied "No, we always show the spare to our clients prior to delivering the vehicle". I said "well, no one showed it to me!" He didn't believe and said I would be responsible for paying $231 to replace the spare as I had only bought the cheap insurance and not the comprehensive one. Further details: after checking with several Costa Ricans, they told me the cost to replace the tire would be $50, not $231. I asked several other people on my trip who had rented cars from different agencies if their attendant had shown them the spare prior to releasing the car. Universal answer: NO! The icing on the cake: from the window of the office, I watched as a different attendant showed a customer their car and reviewed it for scratches and dents. Did they open the trunk and look at the spare? ABSOLUTELY NOT. I pointed this out to the attendant who replied "yes he did show them the spare on that model is not in the trunk but under the car" LOL, I'm almost positive that was not true. Learned my lesson! Review the spare I guess! Make sure it's not dirty or gashed! What a joke. Avoid this company if possible. Be extra aware if you are picking up in a remote satellite location. Awful return experience but the car was fine and did the job. I also filed two complaints against the company and have yet to hear back on any process/resolution 3 days later. I have not been charged yet for the spare - they say they are going to review my case before charging me so yet to be seen if I actually have to make the payment. In the end, an awful way to end an otherwise amazing trip to Costa Rica!

4.4 Mediocre

Jan. 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Flexibility w/ confirmed pick up time after issue w/ travel and getting there on time. Staff there tried to help a little bit w/ insane hidden fees that don't even match the carrentals.com contract terms.

Cons:

insane hidden fees of $33/day for liability coverage. they offer cheap rental rates knowing that the liability cost is hidden and only hits you when you pick up car in their office. would have rented for fewer days IF we knew UPFRONT about hidden fees. Very shady by economy rent a car, carrentals.com, and KAYAK.

8.8 Very good

KAYAK

Pros:

Easy pick up and drop off, good location, nice staff. Cars were on the newer side and very clean.

Cons:

A loose wheel housing component fell off within about 15 minutes of driving. However, the staff handled it well when we brought the car back.

The car I had reserved was not available. Ended up with an ok sedan. A little underpowered for the hills in Manuel Antonio and bare bone options. Seat was uncomfortable after an hour and a half driving.

Cons:

Even though I paid insurance on the budget rent-A-Car website, I was told I didn't have any coverage at all and was pressured to buy $40 more in insurance. I think they call it, highway robbery!

Pros:

Friendly staff. Fair value for basic rental

Cons:

Lots of little extras that you had to pay for or sign away a big hold on your credit card for up to $3000!! Even if you have taken & have proof of CDW insurance booked through Kayak...
