As you know, for the past few days I have been offering a Costa Rica cheap rent a car service on the site to rent a 4×4 vehicle in Costa Rica . Why that ? How did the idea come to me?
I set up this Costa Rica car rental service on the website because I know it’s still a bit difficult to rent a car. We have all gone through unpleasant experiences during our holidays and not necessarily at the other end of the world, it even happens in France.
I rented a car for my personal needs at the base, the reception of my family on vacation more exactly, and it went so well that I then contacted the head of the agency to realize a partnership with Green Costa Rica.
I therefore tell you below, in text form or audio version, our experience cheap car rental in Costa Rica .
I will tell you a bit about my trip to Costa Rica when we rented a car with my parents and their friends. First, we went out of the airport and the gentleman was there waiting for us, with the sign and our name on it, knowing that we were 1 hour late
After making the presentations in a very friendly atmosphere, with a touch of French who gave for the little story: ” Hello mom ” instead of ” Hello ma’am “. We had a good laugh too … He accompanied us with the rental car to the agency which is less than 10 minutes – a little more with the traffic jams, it was a Friday nigh
And at the agency, we took the time to review everything, he explained everything gently, including insurance, the signing of the contract and the print of the bank card on carbon paper for the deposit and to pay the fines if there is any during the stay. But I will explain in detail all this before – in French – so that it is even simpler for you and if you rent your vehicle by means of our site, it is taken into account in the French support. He explained to us in particular the steps in case of breakdown and especially in case of accident: do not move the car, call him directly, either at the agency during office hours or on a mobile phone in case of a problem at night, and he even gave us his personal phone ..
We also had advice on safety, the roads in Costa Rica, the operation of GPS (very useful because in Costa Rica, there are very few signs), set in French mode and programmed for tourist places, by example Poas volcano. Once OK, we paid
Finally, we checked the condition of the car with the gentleman, very quickly because it was in excellent condition, and he gave us all the explanations, the fuel to put, the operation of the lights, the spare wheel, the triangle and mandatory safety vest …
It’s a lot of information but they are not in a hurry: we had to put 1 hour to do everything but at least everything is seen, you take the car knowingly. And I really liked that
We then took the road and we enjoyed our trip for 15 days, from the highway to the country road via the ferry from Puntarenas and going towards Rio Celeste, Monteverde, on horrible roads with huge holes , at 20 km / h average over more than 10 km. And really, we were very happy to have rented a good 4 x 4 vehicle that goes everywhere. And when you think you’re lost in the middle of nowhere, the GPS is really very useful.
For gas, no problem either, it is possible to pay in dollars or colones … And then, the Costa Ricans are very friendly, really, always ready to help you. We really enjoyed and it seems to me more than 1000 km in 15 days anywa
On the last day, just before getting on the plane, we returned the car to the Costa Rica car rental agency: no problem of time either to make it. Really super nice, the guy went around the car and tore the bond sheet directly. And he took us to the airport with all our suitcases and wished us a good trip and back to Costa Rica.
