Welcome to Alamo Rental Car Costa Rica!

Please browse for rental cars by clicking on the yellow button below. Before you proceed, please double-check that the information you input (e.g., pick-up location, dates, times, etc.) is correct and suitable for your needs.

⚠️ Mandatory Insurance Notice:

  • Collision Damage Waiver-Theft Protection (CDW-TP): The CDW-TP is mandatory and can only be declined if you opt for a wider Protection Package or an Extended Protection option that already includes it, such as the Alamo Protection Package (APP). Alternatively, you can decline CDW-TP if you already have coverage through a credit card under your name (the driver’s name). Many credit cards offer this benefit through their card agreement. If you want to confirm if you have insurance coverage for CDW-TP in Costa Rica, please contact your credit card company. Otherwise, we advise purchasing this insurance as it is mandatory; if not, you will be charged for it at Alamo’s counter during check-in.
  • Third Party Liability (TPL): The purchase of Third Party Liability (TPL) is required by the rental location for all vehicles in Costa Rica unless you purchase the Alamo Protection Package (APP), which includes TPL.

Note: Other protection products like Alamo Protection Package (APP), Deductible Protection (DP), Roadside Assistance (RSP), and Tire and Windshield Protection (TWP) are optional.

Navigating the Booking Software:

  • Once you input pick up location, dates & time, and driver’s age, please click on the yellow “Browse Vehicles” button, and you will see a list of available vehicles with images and rates. You can filter vehicles by type, transmission, and fuel type as needed. Note that while these rates include taxes and fees, they do not include mandatory and optional insurances, which you can add in the next step, “Add Extras.”
  • After selecting your vehicle, proceed to the “Add Extras” step. Here, make sure to add the mandatory Protection Products: Collision Damage Waiver-Theft Protection (CDW-TP) and Third-Party Liability (TPL). Additionally, you can choose optional extras such as a booster seat, baby seat, GPS, or mobile phone. Click “Continue” to proceed.
  • If you did not select the Alamo Protection Package, a message will prompt you to purchase it. However, if you have added the mandatory insurances, purchasing the Alamo Protection Package is optional. Click “Continue Without Adding” to move to the next step, where you will enter the driver’s information.
  • In the final step, “Review and Book,” ensure all information is correct, including Dates & Times, Location Details, Vehicle Details, Package & Extras, Protection Products, and Driver’s Information. If anything needs to be corrected, click the “edit” button. Once all information is verified, including the total price to pay on arrival, click “Reserve.”
