This company has some bad reviews so we were a bit nervous but everything went very well. Great car exactly as described and really very minimal complaints.
It does take a while to get the car as you have to take a shuttle bus (same for all car hire companies) and then the paperwork took a while. But I think this is fairly standard. Returning the car is very quick.

Missed me rear sensors riding in the back and could have been a stronger engine

No instruction on gps, which is useless in Costa Rica and essentielle was unnecessary. Slow proces when picking up car.

Staff was really helpulf
Cost of insurance was high

The car condition was okay The car rerurn was easy
The cost of the insurence was very high. I think that you should be involved at this part as the insurence cost is higher than the renting and you do not know what to expect and how to refer to it

Wait at airport to get to rental place was long. Wait at rental place to get car was long.
