We explain how Costa Rica Car Hire is different when it comes to insurance
It might be easy to think that car hire around the world is based on similar rules and regulations - but it's not - and Costa Rica is a prime example of how an easy assumption can result in a crippling bill at the end of your rental.
Costa Rica is different because many of the car rental firms not only impose an excess on damage to the car you are renting but also on third party claims as well. And that excess is normally an uncapped 20% of the bill. That means an accident which has a life changing impact on a third party could end up costing you tens or even hundreds of thousands of pounds.
To help our users avoid this we have a filter - unique to quotes for Costa Rica - which means you can ensure you book a car with full third party cover.
Once you have selected this filter we will show you cars which include third party cover without an excess - this can either be included automatically within the prices or be already added into to cost of the car as an extra - but either way it means you can quickly compare prices knowing you are covered. You will also be able to add excess insurance to cover your rental vehicle as well.
