Long wait for pick up after insurance rip offPros:Upgrade for delayCons:I couldn't complete the online insurance from the UK (because i was not in the US). I had to take out when i arrived at San Jose to be faced with an outrageous take it or leave price of $40 per day for comprehensive cover. Outrageous. I pay twice as much to insure three cars for a year as I did for a month in one car.Reviewed 5 Feb. 2017

Pros:10/10 would reccomend the Alamo in Belen near the San Jose Airport. Customer service was amazing, staff was super friendly and helpful, and facilities and cars are clean and well-maintained. We upgraded for a small extra amount per day and were so thrilled with our vehicle (Toyota Fortuner). Upon returning our car to Alamo at the end of our trip, we had no wait at all before our car was checked out, receipt confirmed, and our friendly driver dropped us off at the airport. Will absolutely be return customers for our next trip.Cons:Everything was super!Reviewed 12 Feb. 2020

Be carefulPros:The car was nice. had no problems with it the four wheel drive saved my butt a few times. Returning the care was quick and easy, done in five minutes, and the shuttle took us to the airport no problems.Cons:Unfortunately when we got to the car rental place they refused to let us use our third party insurance and forced us to take theirs, which made the price go from $150 to $557 total also they required a 1,000 usd deposit for the time that they withdrew from my credit card for the time that we had the car. (I guess this is standard but it would have been nice if they let us know ahead of time.)Reviewed 14 Feb. 2017

HUGE hidden fees, SCAMPros:We rented an SUV for 11 days in Costa Rica. The online price for a 5 person/4 bag SUV was $196. We figured that we couldn't say no at that price and planned our trip based on having our own vehicle. When we arrived, they conveniently had misunderstood that we wanted a smaller SUV that could hold 4 people/1 bag and wanted us to pay an large upgrade fee to get the vehicle we had actually reserved. They also failed to mention that the insurance is $56/day and insurance is mandatory. There is also an additional unmentioned daily rate for each additional driver. All in all, the total would have been $900-$1000, about 5 times the price we had been quoted. They know they have you in a tough position and take advantage of that vulnerability. You either have to give into their scam or totally rehaul your vacation on the fly and miss things you were really looking forward to. Will never rent from ALAMO again.Reviewed 27 Jan. 2017
