3.6 Mediocre

Felt ripped off
Pros: The drop off service and the gps service were great.
Cons: When I got to the airport and showed the person at Economy my reservation he said that the confirmation was a estimate. I did arrive late and he said that the car I reserved was given away. I don't have a problem with that. He asked me if I had insurance and I told him yes I did. He asked if it was through Allienze and I said yes. He said that since we are renting. 4 wheel drive vehicle that the policy I chose was not good and would have to get a policy from them. He also tried to sell me a car seat for my 10 year son. So he continued to up sell me at every turn. I didn't feel comfortable in leaving that desk and trying to go to another rental company. I had my wife and three kids there and decided that I was going to pay for the rental instead of trying another company without English being the language spoken. The confirmation through Kayak was at 280 dollars or so I ended up paying close to 700 with additional insurance that I am not sure I even needed.

Insurance Scam in Costa Rica
Pros: Our vehicle was available upon arrival and drove fine.
Cons: We booked our Economy rental car through Kayak for about $120 total. However, when we arrived we were informed that we were required to purchase insurance for over $400 extra not including a $1000 security deposit on the vehicle. In total, we paid about $520 for a two week rental which isn't too expensive, but it was very upsetting initially when we walk in expecting to pay a little over $100 and end up paying over $500. So either Kayak or Economy should be a little more upfront about international car rental insurance.

Worst Car Rental Ever
Pros: Car was ok
Cons: HIDDEN FEES GALORE! On top of that, I have asked the company for a breakdown of the fees, since what they charged my credit card is more than what the estimated receipt stated. I still have not heard back from them a week later. I can't believe this company operates like this, especially seeing all the other horrible reviews about them.

Insurance is the cost
Cons: There was no information on the cost of the insurance in the booking information. Insurance, the compulsory portion, not the one paid by your credit card company (worth about $3), ends up adding 5 times the cost paid for the car. $8/day for car, $38/day for insurance. It would have been nice to know the costs up front!

Terrible customer service
Pros: Near the airport.
Cons: Both picking up and dropping off the employees were the slowest I have ever seen. Dropping off took over 45 minutes and in the end I had to ask for a ride to the airport from a competing company as economy's van never arrived.
