A Good Car Rental Company in Costa Rica, Solid Car Rental
I would like to tell you about a car rental company in Costa Rica that I have twice rented from and have been very pleased with their services. The name is Solid Car Rental company. I rented from their main office near the San Jose International Airport. A young man named Jonathan, who speaks very good English, was assigned to help me. He was courteous and prompt.
I rented a small vehicle, a Suzuki Jimmy 4×4, for my husband and me. There was room for 2 more passengers in the back seat, plus a couple pieces of small luggage in the area behind the back seat. But is was just my husband and me so we had ample room. I choose the 4×4 because we planned to drive outside the central valley and some of the roads have potholes. The vehicle was a 2008 with all new tires.
They delivered the car to me at my hotel located about 12 minutes outside Alajuela, the town located right near by the San Jose International Airport. Rates for car rentals are very similiar among all the many car rental agencies in Costa Rica. But do look on the car rental web sites for any specials that might be offered, and do ask for specials if you call and speak to a sales person.
Please read my article “Guide to Renting a Car in Costa Rica, Saving Time and Money” It’s under that same name in the categories. There I talk about, among many other things, the importance of obtaining collision insurance through you major credit card company BEFORE you depart from you home country.
Solid Rental Car company has satellite offices in Liberia at the Liberia International Airport and in most of the other heavily trafficked tourism destinations. All these are listed on their web site.
