Counter staff very nice Traffic and congestion between the location and the airport
Anonymous Liberia Airport 23 December 2019
Service was awesome on both sides. Best drop off i have ever had in this country. I was given an Audi Q3 instead of a Q5, didnt realize until later. Was pretty cramped for 4 of us and luggage.
Anonymous San Jose Airport 08 December 2019
The car was comfortable and sturdy.Felt very safe driving in. It was very comfortable. The GPS was a huge help. We have an infant with us and 6 adults everyone was comfortable. We loved everything.

The car was perfect for the rough terrain of the Costa Rican roads. Main roads were paved, but bumpy. Secondary roads were dirt and gravel with large potholes from the torrential rains.

Quick transfer from AirPort to rental office. Seamless handing over of the car. Cleanliness and overall condition of the car. Swift returning of the car and immediate transfer to the airport. Exemplary service. This is what renting a car should be Non applicable

The whole experience was excellent! A great car that served me well both in town, as well as traveling highways & rural roads! No rear view camera
Anonymous San Jose Downtown 22 July 2018
Excellent service at the pick up point San José downtown. The drop off point at San José Airport was a bit tricky to find.
Anonymous San Jose Airport 31 March 2018
They did not show me completely the car, lights, spare tire, documents of the car
Anonymous San Jose Airport 10 January 2018
Everything was very good from the product to the service, staff was good, would probably use their services again Not a very big issue, but it would be nice if it were actually at the airport, it is obvious that space there is a premium and I’m not altogether sure any company is actually on the airport premises, like I said not that big an issue. If I had to pick one thing I didn’t like that would be it
Julie Liberia Airport 18 April 2017
Convenient and close to airport. Airport shuttle service. Vehicle was dependable and comfortable. Staff was professional. Car wasn't clean inside or outside.
Anonymous San Jose Airport 10 May 2016
All the add-on charges
Anonymous Liberia Airport 31 March 2016
Only thing that keeps us from giving straight 5 rating is the expense of the insurance Very nice courteous staff--we really appreciate that. They are great. Thanks.

The service, que had a trouble with our first car and they changed it immediately.
Anonymous San Jose Airport 28 March 2015
Car was very new, worked well. Signs to return car were limited. Tried to sell, upgrade, GPS, gas fill up, CDW etc. Staff seemed a little less cheery when I said no to all of them
Anonymous Liberia Airport 09 March 2014
The car itself was perfect I wonder why they always come up with last minutes proposals for additional insurance issues and of course in a country like Costa Rica you can hardely take a risk. I thought that everything was already included in my initial contract and was very surprised to pay almost +25% for unknown additional risks.
Anonymous Liberia Airport 01 March 2014
Took quite a while to organise the initial rental considering all had supposedly been pre-paid
Anonymous Liberia Airport 27 January 2014
