Pros:Absolutely no pressure for upgrading or anything else when I checked in. Very friendly staff & couldn't have asked more.Cons:There seemed to be a miscalculation with the airport tax. I'd recommend really looking at the paperwork before you pay. For me, it was a little over $10 difference, but for others with a more expensive rental, may be much more. GOOD thing is that they were more interested in figuring it out than with arguing with me. Did not get to the bottom of it, but they did offer me a discount for a second driver that made it about even.Reviewed Dec 30 2020

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 Feb 12 2020

Pros:Represenatives were polite and understanding.Cons:We selected an alamo rental from Kayak to accommodate for 5 people and 4 bags with additional Allianz auto insurance that was provided as an add-on on the Kayak website. When we arrived in Costa Rica, we learned that despite a visual proof via receipt from the Kayak website, an 'Intermediate SUV' by Alamo in Costa Rica is defined as an SUV that accommodates 4 people and 2 suitcases. In addition, the Allianz auto insurance that we selected would not cover the SUV rental as Allianz does not cover SUV's in Costa Rica.Reviewed Feb 3 2017

Beware Alamo/National could give you an older car in high seasonPros:The car (a Suzuki 4x4) worked well and did the job but did not have the mod cons of a new car (no usb connection for eg.) The drop off person was very good.Cons:The car was much older than we were led to believe - at least 10 years older (it was sold as 'type was Jeep Patriot' with an image of a new car). When I mentioned this to the salesperson they said that it was high season and they had none left. I think that I should have had a reduction in price. Plus, the car was not very clean when we picked it up.Reviewed Jan 16 2018
