Alamo Rent a Car in Costa Rica offers you the following options of coverage:

Basic Coverage (Mandatory)

This is a combine product that includes Collision Damage Waiver and Third Party Insurance.

The maximum amount of deductible to be paid to Alamo in case of damages caused to the rented car is US$ 1.000.00 (one thousand dollars). If there are damages done to third parties properties, the deductible will be 20 % (twenty percent) of the total of the damages. The minimum deductible in case of damages done to thirds parties is US$ 250.00 (two hundred and fifty dollars). The deductible in case of theft will be US$ 2.000.00 (two thousand dollars).
