Friendly staff.Better disclosure regarding required coverage. Would have also rented a vehicle with more horse power given that I explored way outside of the city.

N/AAlamo did not honor the vehicle level i had reserved. I reserved a Kia Rio or equivalent and when i got there i was offered a Kia Picanto an told me that they were the same level. Defínete Kia Picanto is a smaller vehicle. They told me that if i wanted a Kia Rio i had to pay an upgrade. My reservation clearly said Kia Rio and i show my reservation. I didn’t pick up my vehicle and had to rent a vehicle with another agency. It was a very bad experience and had to spend more than what i had planned. I saw other custommers having the same issues, not a good practice.

Very friendly staff, but not so good carsStaff was very friendly and prompt to help methey did not have the type of car I requested so they upgraded me to a minivan, I was told that the insurance that KAYAK offered was not good enough for them and that I had to take their insurance.

Unsatisfactory limited infoMay be the drop off personnel was a lot friendlier than pick up. I was Not aware of all the fees they make you pay in order to rent..That was only revealed at the counter at pick up time (In a very imperative manner). The airport and the car rental lot is at a considerably long distance. That information was not revealed until pick up time.Counter Personnel attitude at pick time

This office was good, but the website gave an incorrect price, which was not super cool. Nothing wrong with the particular office, just the whole website.

Yes. But the charge way to much on place! The have hidden charges, I wasn’t happy about that! I paid a lot more than I expected.Be prepared to be charged your credit card with $700 as a deposit even if you already bought an insurance here!

Staff was very friendly and thorough in inspecting the car, telling us where the emergency equipment was, fluids in the car, etc.The security deposit was really high at $1600, likely because it was in a different country and a bigger vehicle. I was also not allowed to decline the insurance. There was a mandatory insurance of $13.99/day. The other option that coverage everything was $32/day.

Budget El Salvador did not have available the vehiTerrible customer service to say the least!Did not have available the type of vehicle I had reserved through Kayak. They offered me a lower class vehicle for the same price. They wanted force me to buy a local insurance policy, advising me that Allianz insurance was not valid in El Salvador. I was very angry and disappointed and did not take the car.

I just liked the staff was available and ready on time both during pick up and drop off.The car they gave me was a Hyundai smal car with mechanic transmission. Very uncomfortable and small. I understand economic cars are economic but this was extremely below the economic average.

6.0 Good24 Mar. 2021
Everyone was amazing at the store, service was great and they even picked-up my car without any additional fee since I was feeling sick and couldn't drive the car there.Car was in really poor shape, locks didn't work correctly. Could hardly get out of the passengers side, it took about 4-5 tries every time to open the door. Dangerous if we had ever gotten into an accident.

Won’t rent from national ever again!Nothing! Worst experience everRep tried forcing me to buy insurance after telling her that my credit card cover insurance. After going back and forth and I finally agreed to buy insurance cause I just wanted to get it over with. The rep refused to rent me the car afterwards. On top of that, they did not have the car I had reserve wich was a minivan. Whats the point of making a reservation if you’re not going to have the car you specifically reserved? Will never ever bother with national. And will not recommended to anyone.

I ordered a automatic transmission and when I got there they rented out my reserved van, and gave me a 5 speed which was difficult to drive with my leg injury. And I brought the van back early and they said I would have a credit instead of refunding me the $108 This is the first time I have rented with Alamo national in El Salvador and it would be my last,

Car hire excess insurance in San Salvador

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some San Salvador car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in San Salvador.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your San Salvador car rental.
