Car Rental Prices

Rent a carbon-neutral vehicle for your perfect Costa Rican adventure

The Adventure Inn Guarantee

Adventure Inn constantly searches the car rental market in Costa Rica. By comparing all available car rental agencies in Costa Rica we guarantee for the best quality vehicles, price, insurance terms, service, and even carbon neutrality, we feel strongly that you won't find a better all-around deal anywhere else.

Even though we choose only the most reputable car rental companies, from time to time things can go wrong. In the event that the car rental agency is at fault, we will always stand up for our clients.

Found a cheaper price somewhere else?

You may find cheaper prices for two reasons:

  • The cars may be older: It is not uncommon for agencies to rent cars that have well over 150 000 km. For this reason, we always display the year of the car.
  • Hidden fees: The prices we quote (below) are final prices with no hidden fees. If you cannot talk to a real person and get a guaranteed final price, don't bother. Many of our guests have been unpleasantly surprised to discover, after it is too late, that they have to pay nearly twice what they expected.

Driving any of our listed cars is carbon neutral. The gas emission generated is compensated by reforestation projects on the Osa Peninsula meeting the requirements of the Carbon Neutral Protocol.

These prices are based on a 24 hour day, and include all taxes, mandatory CDW insurance, a second driver at no additional cost, unlimited mileage, 24 hour line service, 24 hour road-side assistance, and pick-up and drop off at the Adventure Inn or airport (same price). All vehicles have air conditioning, FM/CD and power steering. 4WD vehicles are recommended from May 15th to December 1st because of heavy afternoon rains. 4WDs or the Nissan Urvan are also recommended if you are going to Monteverde because of greater road clearance.

Most people do not take the costly full insurance coverage, and elect to pay the deductible if necessary. It is long and difficult to sue in Costa Rica and rewards are generally low. Like all car rental agencies in Costa Rica, they require a single credit card to be used for both the deposit and the total rental charges. The deposit is equal to the full deductible, which is then reversed when you hand the vehicle in undamaged.

Insurance in Costa Rica is a state run monopoly, and there is little reason to shop around. Though insurance offered by all car rental agencies differs slightly, what one agency gives in one area, it takes away in another, so it basically balances out.

A GPS installed is $10 / day with a $150 refundable deposit, baby seats are $3 / day. Cell phones are a $10 one time fee including 120 pre-paid local minutes or the equivalent value in international minutes (set by the local phone company, Kolbi). Any additional minutes you need can be purchased at most supermarkets and convenience stores around Costa Rica. Cell phones require a $150 refundable deposit.

Children's car seats are $3 per day. Luggage covers, luggage baskets and roof racks are a one time $5 charge regardless of how long you rent.

Vehicles can be dropped off and picked up at Adventure Inn between 7 am and 8:30 pm Monday to Friday, and between 7 am and 6:30 pm Saturday and Sunday. They can be dropped off at Adventure Inn or the airport at any time, but you may have to pay $20 for overnight airport parking. Please note that if you need to return the car at an earlier date than you reserve the car for, your rate will be adjusted accordingly minus a $50 early return fee. If you need to return the car later in the day than the pick up time, there is a 1 hour grace period, for 1-2 hours there is a $20 charge and for more than 2 hours, the rental is rounded up to the next day.

The above rates apply only to rentals of two or more days. If you are renting a vehicle for just one day, please fill out the form below and just ask for a price quote in the comments box.

To make a vehicle reservation just fill out the form below. We will make all the arrangements and confirm them with you. If you need to make changes later, it should be no problem up to 24 hours before you pick up the vehicle.
