Be preparedCons:We booked our vehicle online through Kayak and also purchased insurance. Upon arrival at Thrifty, we were told that they would not accept the insurance and that we would have to purchase our insurance from Thrifty at a cost of over $700. It was basically "take it or leave it". Why does Kayak allow insurance to be sold through their website when it is invalid? We are very upset with this transaction and I would not recommend anyone to book through Kayak. Book directly with the car rental agency so you will know your final cost beforehand. Be prepared.Reviewed 5 Mar. 2017

Embarrassing service. Never renting from Thrifty aPros:Nothing. They didn't show and didn't answer the phone. Even after I called to confirm before we let.Cons:No shuttle was at the airport. Nobody answered and we ended up having to pay $600 and rented a car all week that we didn't want. Thanks thrifty- you made me spend almost half of my budget for the week on a car we didn't want- all because you lied to me.Reviewed 25 Mar. 2017

They were not there when we arrived.Pros:NothingCons:I called their international number to provide my flight information and was assured that someone's would be there to pick me up when I arrived even if my flight was delayed. I was left stranded at the airport with no car and had to rush make alternate araingements. Scary and unfrofessional treatment.Reviewed 25 Apr. 2017

Good car. Beware insurancePros:4wd vehicle is necessary on anything but major roads. Our manual Terios SUV was a little bumpy but handled very rough dirt roads without any problems in first gear. No joke, the dirt roads near and in two national parks in Guanacaste were extremely steep and rocky, and were only one lane in some areas. Also GPS is indispensable because many roads aren't signed. Easy shuttle from Liberia. They met us just outside the terminal and called a day or two before to confirm (showed up as 516 area code).Cons:They made us buy collision, theft, damage insurance, etc even though we had a letter from our credit card company. They didnt like the wording. Said we needed letterhead, specified dollar amount of coverage (ours had no limit), specify Costa Rica (ours only listed countries not covered). Also third party liability coverage is mandatory. We also had battery issue with GPS unit which kept shutting itself off. Overall cost was lower than competition even with their deluxe insurance. Insurance, gps, extra driver, taxes, fees, etc will be double or triple cost of the car itself.Reviewed 12 Feb. 2017

Blindsided by "Required Insurance Coverage"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!!!Reviewed 13 Apr. 2017

Refused to honor my Visa collision insurance and forced me to overpay!Pros:Car was fine, and I was able to drop it off at the airport before they opened.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.Reviewed 31 May 2018

Insurance Scam and damage scam--awfulPros:Our vehicle was fine and available but had many scratches and a dented bumper.Cons:We were forced to pay for full coverage insurance from thrifty at the counter by the agent. We had already purchased insurance thru Allianz when we booked online. This was refused. We had to pay an additional 45$ per day on top of our plan we already paid for. We refused and they wouldn't give us a car or lesser basic option. Since it was late at night with a child and we were offsite we felt very vulnerable with no great options. Our quote of 301$ became 698$ plus 90$ we already paid. When we returned the manage told us there was a basic package for 17$ per day. Also they blamed us for a dent in bumper which was another scam. We had photos to dispute. We were not charged since we had full coverage but if we hadn't they planned to hit us up for that too. Still waiting to hear back from management at Thrifty Liberia. Stay away and document any damage w photos when checking out. Always worth it.Reviewed 4 Apr. 2017
