Top tips for renting a car at Liberia airport

  • A car rental at Liberia Airport (LIR) will efficiently cater to your transit needs in Guanacaste. Public transportation from the airport is inadequate since bus services are not frequent. Also, taking a taxi from the airport can be relatively expensive, especially if you wish to explore attractions in this area. Alternatively, having your own set of wheels will enable you the freedom to explore outside the typical popular beaches in Guanacaste. Moreover, you will skip the delays and waiting periods associated with public transportation from LIR.
  • For renters on a tight budget, consider going for the cheaper cars, such as an economy or compact. You should check out all the onsite car rental providers at LIR and compare the rates to find the best deal available. Also, if your credit card covers all your insurance needs, you can decline the optional insurance cover offered by your car rental at Liberia Airport. Confirm whether you are eligible for discounts to save up some money. You can also have your rental provider remove the charged extras you don't need from your car.
  • When picking up your car rental at Liberia Airport, consider inspecting your car for damages and have them documented. You can also take photos or a video of the vehicle as proof in case you need any. Also, be on the look for possible safety issues when inspecting your car. Ensure all door locks are functional and ask for the airbag service report. If anything is amiss, request another car. Moreover, inquire about the type of gas your vehicle uses and the gas policy the car rental operates. Finally, read through the rental agreement and analyze the terms and conditions before signing it.
  • For Liberia Airport car rental payments, credit cards are the primary payment method accepted. Major credit cards such as MasterCard and Visa are typically accepted, but they must bear the renter's name. However, some rental providers at LIR accept debit cards but demand a security deposit. The security deposit varies with the car rental provider. Also, additional charges and restrictions apply for renters with a debit card.

Pros:

Cons:

I wasn't told I needed 3rd party car insurance in Costa Rica (not just collision insurance; apparently it's the law) until I was at the Alamo office trying to pick up my car. This was a complete surprise and about doubled the cost of my rental car. Also, the Alamo office next to San Juan International Airpirt was VERY difficult to find. We spent about an hour driving around and talked to 3 different professionals (and got 3 different locations).

6.8 Okay

Jul. 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The car we got was exactly as described online and worked great for our needs. The people we met at the Alamo location in Libera for pick up and in San Jose for drop off were very helpful and extremely accommodating with providing maps and recommendations.

Cons:

The rate we were quoted online was vastly different from the end price we paid. When we made our reservation online the price was around $150 for our full reservation and once we arrived at the airport in Liberia to pick up the car we were quoted 3 price options that we could choose from ranging from $450 - $660 depending on the insurance coverage we wanted. If we went with the $450 option the car rental location would put a $1,000 hold on our card that would not be lifted for at least 7 business days after we returned the car (and left the country!). We did not feel in any way comfortable with this option and the only way to not have the hold placed on our card was to go with the $660 option, so we did. At the time of pick up we were told these were required insurances/fees put in place by the country of Costa Rica that we had to pay in order to rent the car. At this point, had just traveled 10+ hours, were in a foreign country and had no other means of transportation for the duration of our vacation so had to accept the fees. In my opinion, it was still not an unreasonable total fee for the time we had the car; however, it was extremely misleading to be quoted one price online for our confirmed reservation and then required to pay another upon arrival. I suggest that if possible, this should be rectified so travelers aren't caught off guard in the future.

Pros:

Alamo has a desk in the airport and a quick shuttle that takes you to the offsite location where the cars are. It's about a 5 min drive in the shuttle. Quick drop off when you're leaving and quick shuttle back to the airport.

Cons:

The required insurance. I bought insurance from Kayak assuming this was in conjunction with Alamo. It was not. I was required by Alamo to either put a $2500 deposit on my credit card or pay $500 for insurance for the week. I was not allowed to cancel my insurance through Kayak either.

near airport; fast shuttle; air conditioned office while checking in; insurance requirements are expensive but worth it for the peace of mind; return was super easy; shuttle back to the airport was quick with only a few minutes wait time. overall great experience -- especially since the car I got was basically brand-new, used diesel and therefore cost almost nothing, and supported Android Auto for access to my music and maps.

Feb. 2024

Borderline scam, and I place about 60% blame on Expedia/carrentals.com/kayak. When I came to pick up the car, the price suddenly doubled due to the “mandatory” liability insurance that was not at all disclosed in any of the previous communications from CarRentals.com or Avis. Moreover, I had to reach out to the (superb) Amex support team to get a letter of coverage (at night in a foreign country) to avoid having to buy optional CDW insurance from Avis as well. Again, this was in no way disclosed at any time between the booking and the pickup. A terrible way to start a great vacation! I recommend looking up an independent car rental company and skipping both Avis and these middlemen.

Used a credit card that has full coverage insurance for 30 days. However once we arrived the agent wanted a letter with our name and card number stating the coverage. Credit card company could not provide the letter in a day therefore we were charged an extra $40 per day for Avis insurance coverage. We witnessed serval people with same problem. We did not have the same problem last year when we booked with another car rental company.

I wish we were warned that they do not allow you to use your own USA insurance. We were forced to purchase theirs for the car which essentially doubled the quoted price. We were told we could avoid this with a print out from our credit card company, but seeing as we were in a line of several customers, this was not realistic.

Our plane arrived in Liberia, Costa Rica at around the time we had informed the agency. When we came in front, there were numerous vendors holding signs from the other car agencies, but no one from Payless. More than one of those vendors called Payless for us but no one answered. One of the vendors had an office near Payless and they told us that no one was in that office. We had to rent a different car.

Pros:

The people were friendly and (thankfully) spoke English. The "Large SUV" (a Suzuki Grand Vitara) met my needs perfectly although I originally got a smaller vehicle not realizing how small it was going to be. I asked if I could get a manual transmission and they did that for me too, which was great. The SUV performed great on dirt roads along the Guanacaste coastal region.

Cons:

I opted out of insurance when I booked it, and that was probably a mistake. I think it was a lot cheaper if I had booked it online, and without this I had to buy there and it was almost twice the price of the car. That SUCKED.

Pros:

The vehicle was exactly what was advertised. It was a Diahatsu Bego, automatic, all wheel drive, with no bells or whistles. Despite the worst roads I had ever driven on (Monteverde), the vehicle ran like a champ. I was very nervous about check in and check out. We took video of the SUV at checkout. The return was very smooth. They had many vehicles to check in so I'm glad we arrived early.

Cons:

We used our credit card for collision and paid bought the mandatory liability through National. They insisted it was $24/day (required), when I was told over the phone $12/day. Only when I told him this did he show the options for the two. Ultimately we did go with the 0 deductible $24/day over the 80/20 liability.

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.

Pros:

The car itself was fine, I got the exact model I reserved, aside from a couple dings was in very good shape and fairly low mileage. Airport transfer was easy enough, they pick-up curbside and didn't keep me waiting very long.

Cons:

Aggressively try to upsell you on their insurance plans. Keep in mind, Costa Rica DOES have some fairly strict liability insurance requirements for rental cars. That said, I know the laws in CR and had purchased a full zero-liability insurance policy for my trip. At the time of pick-up, they "maneuvered" their figures when trying to get me to use their insurance plan, which was shady from the get go. My biggest issue was that they DID end up changing me for $78 in insurance (and several other fees) without my permission! I am currently contesting the charge with AMEX, but I ended up being charged over $100 more than the quote from Kayak, without my permission. Shop elsewhere.

The vehicle was compact and conducive to very questionable roads throughout our stay in Costa Rica. We were disappointed to find out upon arriving to the area where we were staying that the USB port in the SUV did not work. Since most individuals renting are relying upon their phones for GPS in a foreign country (as was the case for us), we could not have made do without having the ability to charge our phone. As such, it resulted in us buying a power bank that cost us over $80 USD. A functional USB port in any rental is of high priority. In our minds, this should have resulted in a discount after the fact, especially in light of the additional expenditure that resulted for us.

A little surprise when we discovered the quoted rate did not include mandatory local liability insurance for Costa Rica. Yes it was addressed in the fine print of our confirmation, but could have been made more clear up front. Nevertheless great car and great value overall.

Terrible check in experience. Charged 3 times the cost of car for insurance at pickup. Took nearly an hour to get checked in with only two customers in front of us. Other customers left unhappy too due to hidden fees and not having 4x4 vehicles that were requested. Beat up car but mechanically sound. Definitely avoid!

This is a scam. Rental car is asking separate insurance through them which they quoted $980.00 despite me buying comprehensive insurance through Kayak/ Allianz. Also they wanted $3000 deposit. Ended up not renting the car. Please read reviews from other travelers and save vacationers being scammed in a foreign country. Thanks.

Loved the ease of rental, but did not love the rep telling me one price over the phone then the very next day, trying to swindle me out of $50 by telling me a different price. The second I pointed it out he changed it back to the original price but he sure did try

Oct. 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was friendly

Cons:

Price is incredibly misleading. What I reserved was a week long rental for a SUV. When we finally got to the rental counter, they surprised us with government mandated insurance, which caused the price to skyrocket. By the end of it, the cheapest option we had, which was “insurance” that still has us liable for all damages and expenses to the sum of $500+ for a week. Had I known the total price before booking, I wouldn’t have even bothered. Look elsewhere for a car rental.

6.0 Okay

Pros:

Car was relatively new, drop-off was easy

Cons:

WAY More expensive than online quote. They fail to mention that even if you purchase insurance you still need to buy another 3rd party insurance at almost $40/day. Brakes squeaked all week

Pros:

Pros:

By the time we arrived to Hertz in Costa Rica, we already purchased an insurance policy via Allianz, a reputable company that we have used for medical coverage as well. Hertz would not accept this policy and forced us to purchase their own at a higher value. From $99 to $245 dollars. I thought that was not acceptable and at this moment pursuing a reimbursement.

The advertised/agreed-upon price is not the same as the price presented by hertz/firefly when you show up to the store store. The google reviews are poor for this store and are correct. The company forces you to provide an insurance letter from your credit card company and forced us to purchase 3d party collision insurance and more than doubled the agreed-upon price.

Cons:

I showed them the letter from Wells Fargo stating that my Visa covers collision damage "up to the entire value of the vehicle" but they refused to accept it because it did not show a dollar limit. Never had this problem before with any rental company in my last 15 Costa Rica rentals.

Apr. 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Kayak- is a good rental place, the only issue was the car on the picture (Toyota RAV 4) is the bigger modle than the one offered (Daihatsu Terios). I must admit, this is confusing, so upon arrival we had to upgrade. (5-people and luggage) For people who want to rent cars to travel Costa Rica!!!!!! Just rent the car and get the insurance locally. Original offer $97.72 (car) + Allianz insurance $117 = $216 Officiall end total = $745

Cons:

Allianz Travel Insurance policy - One receives an offer for a travel insurance policy from a renown company, this is a scam. This insurance policy is not valid in Costa Rica. Third party insurances are not accepted in Costa Rica. I dont understand why this happens in 2017 and why Kayak does not mention this. Please find attached a copy of my mail to Allianz who have not responded so far and to file a claim as we all know becomes more and more difficutl to put people off to file claims. Dear Ladies and Gentlemen Upon arrival in Costa Rica I was deeply alarmed and shocked that this kind of scam still exists. This was a rather negative start to the awaited holiday. It gives the country a negative touch, although you are the ones that should know better and are responsible. The rental car which I booked is fine, but the Insurance which you sold me is not accepted. There is only one insurance accepted here and this is the Costa Rican one which is Government designated! The car rental companies do not accept 3'rd parties into which category you are. Please kindly clarify and state why you as a worldwide operating insurance company sell customers these insurance policies.I was required to buy a new insurance (local) otherwise they would not have given me the rental car. I have documents proving that third party insurances are not valid in Costa Rica. In the year 2017 issues like this should not occur to a renown company like yours. Kindly awaiting your response and the reimbursement of the insurance costs. Best regards

Cons:

When I made my online reservation for a vehicle in Liberia, Costa Rica I was quoted a rate of $112 USD. I also checked with my credit card company to verify that I was covered for insurance, liability and collision, when using my credit card as the payment form for the transaction. When checking in to pick up my vehicle at the Liberia Thrifty location I was told that the government of Costa Rica requires renters to purchase this insurance which more than tripled my rental price from the quoted $112 to $375!!! No where on the online reservation site was there any mention of the required insurance coverage or the outrageous cost of this coverage! Thrifty should make more of this ripoff!!!
