The Central American Charm of Costa Rica

The small Central American country of Costa Rica has both a Pacific and Caribbean coastline, borders the countries of Nicaragua and Panama and is a popular destination for travellers looking for an outdoor adventure and to explore Costa Rica’s many areas of natural beauty. A leader in the field of eco tourism, Costa Rica has become popular due to its biodiversity, as well as its outstanding beaches and national parks. This tropical country has two distinct seasons, divided into the summer ‘dry’ season from December until April and the winter ‘rainy’ season from May until November.

Hiring a cheap car in Costa Rica enables you to visit the wonderful secluded beaches of the Central Pacific region, the mountains and volcanic areas of the Plains of the North, as well as to discover the vibrant cities of San Jose in Central Valley and Dominical in the South Pacific region. With our one-way car rental services, it is possible to drive to Costa Rica via the ‘Interamericana’ Pan-American highway that begins in Alaska in Northern America, passes through Costa Rica and continues on to Southern Panama, although to cross the border you must be able show you have a ticket leaving Costa Rica, by bus or aeroplane. If you arrive by plane, you can collect your cheap car hire on arrival at Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO) in Alajuela, which is convenient for the capital city San Jose or Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR), close to Liberia in the Guanacaste province and the Pacific Northwest coast, a popular tourist destination for beaches and surfing.

Costa RicaGetting around Costa Rica by car can be quite an adventure in itself, with poorly maintained roads making driving slow, but there have been many recent improvements and the new Highway of the Sun leads travellers from San Jose to the beaches of Orotina. Four-wheel-drive is good if you are planning to do a lot of travelling beyond the Central Valley, particularly along the Nicoya coast. Most tourists will head to the beaches of the Central Pacific region and the Nicoya Peninsula, where some of the country’s finest beaches can be found including Playa Santa Teresa and Montezuma. If rafting is your thing, Costa Rica’s many rivers provide plenty of opportunities to do so, and the town of Turrialba and the Arenal Volcano region are popular rafting destinations. Other popular activities including Sport Fishing on both the Caribbean and Pacific coasts, Surfing at the beaches of Playa Negra and Playa Grande and Golf in the Guanacaste, San Jose and Mid Pacific regions. Mountain Biking is also a popular activity, particularly near the Turrialba, Irazu and Arenal Volcanoes, as are ‘Canopy Tours’ through the treetops of Costa Rica’s rainforest. No matter what brings you to Costa Rica, make sure you make the most of your vacation when you hire one of our Costa Rica cheap cars.

Rent an Economy Compact Car in Costa Rica

A compact car, supermini or small city car… whatever name you give it, this is the most economical car you can rent in Costa Rica. Ideal for couples, small families or city driving, not only are compact city cars the cheapest rental category, you will also find that these simple little run around cars keep fuel costs to a minimum. Look out for cars that deliver a good fuel economy (65 mpg being a good return, 80mpg is excellent), such as the manual transmission Volkswagen Polo with a diesel engine that delivers 74.3mpg or the Peugeot 308 Hdi, a great little small family car that delivers an impressive 79mpg. The Peugeot 107 and the Toyota Aygo are also reliable low price small cars, so choose a supermini with excellent fuel efficiency and find out for yourself how much money you can save.

Family Car Hire at Cheaper Rental Rates

If you are travelling with a family and luggage, or are planning to travel long distances, a mid-size or full-size car is what you need. You can find cheap mid-size cars to hire in Costa Rica, including the Toyota Auris Hybrid and the sporty Hyundai i30 automatic tdi. The larger Toyota Prius Hybrid is also a good option, delivering an impressive fuel economy of 83.1mpg, saving you money on your gas. Other cheaper full-size cars include the Volkswagen Passat and the Mercedes C Class, giving you the space and comfort you need for a long journey whilst you reduce rental costs and petrol consumption.

Low Price 7 seater Car Hire

For travels with a large group, hiring a 7 seater minivan is probably the cheapest option. 7 seater cars come in a range of shapes and sizes, from the most economical 5+2 estate car up to a larger 7 seater MPV or minivan. If you are travelling with children, a 5+2 stationwagon is probably your cheapest option, such as the Peugeot 307 Wagon (with Sat Nav). The additional seats are ideal for kids, but not always suitable for adults and long distances, and you may need to consider a larger MPV or minivan. A compact MPV will be the lowest price 7 seater rental and recommended models include the Peugeot 508 5+2 TDI and the Volkswagen Touran 5+2.

If you are planning a long road trip or a weekend in the country, a Toyota Previa Campervan rental might be the cheapest option for you, providing you with the freedom to travel in comfort and style, as well as an affordable, comfortable and safe place to sleep.

SUV and 4x4 Car Rental at Budget Prices

If it is an off-road vehicle you are looking for, or an impressive sporty looking SUV, then find out what cheap deals are available on SUV and 4x4 hire. If you want to save money on fuel costs, an SUV won’t be as fuel efficient as a subcompact car, but there are some SUV’s that will deliver more than 50mpg, including the manual Volkswagen Tiguan Diesel and the crossover SUV Nissan Qashqai Diesel. For a larger 4x4, the Range Rover Evoque or the BMW X3 also deliver a good fuel economy and are both reliable, safe and practical 4x4’s, ideal for family vacations and off road adventures.
