Advantage / Economy Car Rental In San Jose, Costa Rica Bait and Switch on the Price - overcharged for insurance - car cost double of inernet promised rate San Jose, CostarSan Jose Costa Rica
When all was said and done (and since I was desperate for a car) I ended up wasting an hour at their rental counter and then paying exactly double the rate I had from my Travelocity reservation.
Another couple in the "rental car van" behind me said that they had charged him an extra $150 for a day fraudulently.
I felt trapped since I needed a car and very violated. They charged double of the rate I was promised.
Oh - and by the way -- the car they gave me had the Engine light on the whole time. It wasn't till I was 50 miles away that I noticed this. They said I could bring it back if I wanted -- thus wasting the entire day for me. I chose not to & took my chances. Luckily it paid off.
Very scary and horrible experience. I wonder if the other car companies in Costa Rica are similarly deceptive.
