Pros:The van was comfortableCons:What we paid was much, much more than the quote on kayak. There were many hidden fees, the GPS was extra and the back bumper was loose.Reviewed 29 Jun 2016

Pros:Staff were easily accessible and helpful. Pickup and drop-off were both efficient in our experience.Cons:Be prepared for hefty insurance fees added on to the booked rental price. Costa Rica driving is really crazy so I understand the need for insurance, but just be aware of these added costs (unless you have foreign car insurance available from another source).Reviewed 20 Feb 2021

awfulPros:nothingCons:It would've been nice to know that the insurance i bought online was worthless in almost every way. If you get the online insurance, the rental agencies will accept it but put a huge hold on your card (in my case, 2500). There is also ANOTHER personal liability insurance imposed by the government, which I verified, which makes the price jump EXPONENTIALLY. Kayak needs to do more research and ensure that users have all of the information that they need because my so called "$65" car rental was actually $650, and the "Allianz" insurance is worthless unless you can spare a ridiculous hold on your card.Reviewed 15 Sep 2016

DisasterPros:I had a SUV car rental with Budget planned to pick up in Liberia, Costa Rica. They wanted us to pay 3 times as much and said they don't accept the prepaid/arranged car rental. They tried to put me in a manual car which I can't drive and charge me $1000s of dollars as insurance and then told me they wouldn't rent me a cart bc I needed automatic Etc. I had to walk over to enterprise and pay full fair there for one!! Disaster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please call me to straighten this out. Valanna Reed 8322478903 thanksReviewed 4 Jun 2016

Cons:The liability insurance was mandatory. If this cost is mandatory then it should be included in the daily rental cost comparison when booking. The insurance cost was $211 and the daily rental was only $66.Reviewed 2 Mar 2019

Pros:NothingCons:I never got the car because I wasn't told about a 2500 dollar deposit on top of another 300 dollars for insurance that they wanted me to pay. No thanks to economy and no thanks to kayak. I will take my business elsewhere.Reviewed 27 Jan 2020

beware the cost of insurancePros:decent car, hassle free rental once you resolve yourself to almost 500$ a week in total costCons:the rental on kayak was for a 4wheel drive, similar to a Suzuki. once we got there, by the time I paid full coverage insurance, which was 15$ more per day than a very basic policy, the price was almost 500$ for a monday to sunday rental. I felt and feel ripped off. I wanted the peace of mind of not worrying about anything car liability related,but feel that this was ridiculous. Otherwise, from a service perspective this was a fine experience and we ended up with a Hyundi Tuscan which was fine.Reviewed 20 Mar 2017
