WE were told by National representative in Quepos that we could leave the keys at the front desk of the San Jose Hampton Inn and the car would be picked up by National. However, the Hampton Inn refused to take the keys. Just for your information in the future. We were very happy with the flexibility of National to our needs, and all of its representatives.- James R. Bonar

The National online reservation system is excellent as one is able to determine which insurance options are required, with concise explanations and once selected are included in the final cost as are other options like additional drivers, GPS etc. You always know what your final price is at the time of reservation. Highly recommended.- Philip Davson
The National team at SJO was top notch. Super friendly. One of the women gave us toll money as we only had USD, that's going above and beyond. Bravo!- John Price
People really friendly and helpful. GPS worked well. Would definately rent there again.- Paul Roberts
I was a little worried about renting a car in Costa Rica (that I would be stuck with astronomical hidden fees, for example), but my experience with National was a breeze. I was able to make a change to my reservation online with no problem. My car was waiting for me, clean and spotless, at the pick-up point, the agent was extremely friendly, and I was on my way within 15 minutes. The only difficulty I had was trying to find the drop-off location in San Jose (the map on the rental brochure listed an outdated location), so I spent 30 anxious minutes driving around and wondering if I was going to miss my flight! The agents there quickly completed my paperwork (no hidden fees or difficulty) and got me on my way. I'll definitely rent from National again. Just update that map!!- Caitlin Quade

Unfortunately, I forgot his name, but the gentlemen that assisted me in your Costa Rica office(Penas Blancas) at the border of Nicaragua was excellent! In a time where customer service has given way to profits, I must say he is the SOLE reason why I will choose National again. He went above and beyond in helping me navigate an issue with my passport, was extremely courteous and professional. I hope these comments make there way to his superiors as he is well deserved of any accolades he may receive. Thank you.- Michael Hanney

Excellent Service!!! R. Macricostas-
Both I and my friend had reserved vehicles and I was easily able to cancel my reservation by phone about a week before I arrived, as we only needed one vehicle. When we picked up the van I asked if they could remove the back seat, because we needed it for luggage space, which they did in just a few minutes. Everyone at National was very courteous and helpful. There was a problem with a rear brake, which locked up whenever I even touched the brake pedal. I reported this to the person on duty when we returned the van. I have rented from many different car rental companies in Costa Rica. I think our experience with National is the best we have had.- Steven Johnson

While in Costa Rica, my husband left his sunglasses in the car when we returned it. We took a shuttle from the rental office to the San Jose airport. While we were at the airport, a guy from the rental company, with copies of our passports in hand, found my husband and gave him his glasses, telling him he had left them in the car. Before we could properly thank him he was gone. We were speechless that he would go to such extremes to return something that we had left in the car. I wish we knew his name so that we could personnaly thank him and tell him how much that meant to us.- Regina Lane
Your personnel were very friendly. Thanks!- Donald Buttermore

The attendant at the counter was very helpful. This was our first time in Costa Rica and he was able to give us great directions and tips.- John Lebron
Extremely friendly and helpful staff in La Fortuna.- Steven Wisniewski
We choose National because the insurance options were by far the easiest to understand about what you were truly getting. I was a bit worried about how we would communicate renting a vehichle as we do not speak spanish very well. However, the staff at the San Jose facilty were very helpful and spoke English very well. The car was in good condition and although a bit small for American standards, it was able to go on every road that we took it on. Based on this experience, we would definitely rent from National Costa Rica again. BB, Tampa, Florida, USA- Rebecca Brown
