Cons:Total scam. You think $150 for the week, and the scammers hassel you to $500. Some people were $1,000 for the week.Reviewed Mar 10 2019

Misrepresented on KayakPros:Customer service at DollarCons:Kayak misrepresented the vehicle. I booked a vehicle that could fit 7 with insurance. When I got there I found out the vehicle only seated 5 and the insurance I paid for through Kayak wasn't even basic insurance for this country. Ended up paying 400 more than originally quoted!! Could have saved almost 200 going directly through Dollar.Reviewed Oct 29 2016

Pros:Staff friendlyCons:The price was completely different to what we booked on the website. About three times as much - an absolute ripoff and obviously I had no choice but to pay the difference once I was at the desk. The car was nice but I expected more than a Mitsubishi when ordering a premium SUV.Reviewed Jan 18 2019

Pros:Car -- drop offCons:they sold me insurance I did not need. Very aggressive - overall I paid $30 more than I should have.. Rechecked when I got home and the original amount was correct on advice from your U.S. telephone rep. They gave other renters the same treatment.Reviewed Sep 29 2016

Above and beyondPros:The crew was great all around. We were traveling with 5 kids. The guy at the counter radioed the van then existed us to the right place at the curb for pickup, helped with bags and made sure everything was loaded. At the office, they had the car (SUV) waiting out front. I needed to tie some luggage to the roof, so they got ripe for me, put my luggage in plastic bags because there was a chance of rain, and tied it to the roof for me. Service was fast and friendly. Great job. Drive all over and with the diesel, got incredible mileage.Reviewed Jun 26 2016

Cons:Pricing was misleading. $160 rental turned into a $250 rental due to extra fees. Dollar would not accept 3rd party insurance and put a $2500 hold on my account. Cost structure and fees were not made clear up front. Dissapointing.Reviewed Jan 28 2019

They will hit you with extra charges any way they can!Cons:We got stuck in traffic because of construction in Monteverde. It was beyond our control. They shut down the only street in or out for hours. We called Dollar Rental to let them know and they told us NOT TO WORRY and that we would NOT BE CHARGED EXTRA for running late as long as we got there before they closed at 11:30 PM. We got there at 10:30 PM and the guy that was checking us back in said, "Don't worry, you won't be charged extra for being a few hours late." However, when we went to pay, the guy at the front desk charged my credit card for an additional $60.51 for the few hours we were late. I told him that both the guy on the phone and the guy who checked us back in told us we would not be charged extra. He gave me a funny look and said, "Oops, they didn't tell me that and I already ran your card, so I can't reverse the charge now. You'll have to email corporate when you get back to the US and they will fix it for you." I emailed corporate over a week ago and never heard back from them. I will never be using Dollar Rental again.Reviewed Mar 30 2018
