Real bummerPros:Surprise mandatory charge of 300$ for insurance?!!!Cons:UndisclReviewed 31 Dec 2017

Be aware of insurance difficultiesPros:The car itself was great for getting around Costa Rica, I don't recommend anything less than an SUV for that. The problem we encountered was paying for the insurance through Kayak via Allianz. When we arrived at Budget having insurance already, we were told that if we wanted to use our third party insurance (Allianz) we had to put down a $3,000.00 hold on a credit card that we weren't prepared for and was not easy to resolve. We ended up having to cancel the Allianz insurance and purchase insurance through Budget which brought our total from $140 (car rental + Allianz at time of booking through Kayak) to $400 (rental + Budget insurance). Not a cost we had prepared for, plus we had to spend over an hour resolving the issue once we arrived at Budget.Reviewed 15 Jan 2017

Unhappy customerCons:The price that we got from budget through kayak was completely different then what I actually ended up paying. Instead of it being a few hundred it was over a grand. Never using kayak to book again or budget.Reviewed 28 Feb 2016

Gave my rental awayCons:Reserved a mid-sized suv for 7 days, 1/14 (1:00 pm) to 1/21 (1:00 pm). The airport shuttle took over 35 minutes to pick us up and when we arrived at the Budget rental office we were informed that our rental vehicle had been given to another customer. There where no other vehicles available to rent. So we rented a vehicle from another company.Reviewed 23 Jan 2016
