Costa Rica car rental discount FAQ
Why should we book through you? You’re a blog!
Yes we are a blog. But we’re also travelers just like you. Read our About Us page to get to know us and you’ll see that we’ve been in your exact shoes before – in fact we are now! As savvy travelers like yourself, we’re always scoping out the best deals for every one of our trips and through our blog, we have the opportunity to give back to our readers who have supported us so much.
We’re not a travel agency or tour company so we’re not convincing you to book with us just so we can get commissions like a travel agent would. From day one our goal for Mytanfeet has always been to provide the best tips and the most helpful advice to our readers and this discount is one way for us to do that and to say thank you.
Trust us, we know exactly what it’s like to plan a trip in Costa Rica. Yeison used to work in tourism and I’ve planned all the trips for my friends and family. We know it’s not easy to do! We want to help make your trip planning easier and for everyone to have an amazing time in Costa Rica!
I don’t know if I need to or should rent a car. Do you have any tips?
Yep! We have a bunch! In fact we had so many we wrote a whole article on it. You’ll read about why you should (or shouldn’t) rent a car, what kind of car to rent and our personal experiences with renting a car. When it comes down to it, if you want to go where you want and when you want, it’s best to rent a car. There are so many hidden gems in Costa Rica that you can’t get to without one!
I heard the roads in Costa Rica are bad. Do I need a 4×4?
You heard correctly! But it depends on your route because it’s not horrible everywhere. The main roads, highways and the city roads are paved but there are many places where it is not. Read our Costa Rica road conditions post to see what the roads are like for popular destinations and routes to see if you need a 4×4.
I’m worried about driving. Do you have any tips and do I need a GPS to get around?
We sure do! We wrote an in-depth Costa Rica driving tips article about rural and city road conditions, road signs and more. Yeison wrote an updated driving guide for an authentic insight into how Costa Ricans drive and how to stay safe on the road.
As for a GPS, if you are going to the major touristic destinations like Arenal/La Fortuna, Monteverde, Guanacaste, Puerto Viejo and don’t plan on exploring, a GPS is not absolutely necessary. There is fairly good signage for those destinations. However, if you’re planning on going to less touristic areas or driving in San Jose, then a GPS is highly recommended. But if you have international data or a pre-paid sim card, Waze is the best GPS app for Costa Rica.
What is the mandatory insurance?
Costa Rica has a mandatory insurance for all car rentals which is called the Liability Protection on the rental form. It has coverage up to $20,000 in 3rd party damages with a 20% deductible along with coverage of 3rd parties not in the car (i.e pedestrian) up to $100,000 with 0 deductible.
They have a 2nd insurance called Car Protection which is for damages of the rented car in an accident, collision or roll over. In case of total or partial theft of the rented car, the Car Protection also covers any financial losses due to the theft. This can be declined with a letter from your credit card company presented upon arrival.
The full insurance (Total Protection) covers $5,000,000 third parties damage, and it has $0 deductible in collision, roll over, and theft.

Does Adobe have any extra or “hidden” fees that’s not on my reservation?
Nope! This is one of the main reasons we partnered with Adobe – what you see on your reservation or quote is exactly what you pay. NO hidden fees, no last minute extra things you have to pay.
Adobe does require a $1000 deposit which will be on hold for the length of the reservation and released when the reservation is over. Please make sure your credit card limit is sufficient. *We are not responsible for this, this is Adobe’s condition.*
How do I know my rental is confirmed?
You will receive a confirmation email after you book your car. If you don’t receive the email in 24 hours, you can email us and we’ll make sure you receive it.
How do I know I’m *really* getting a discount?
Hey I totally get it! I’d want to check too if it was me. You can go to the Adobe Rent a Car Costa Rica website and compare the prices. Remember, some prices may not reflect the discount during blackout dates which are not set by us. But I assure you that the deal is real!
What if I need to change, cancel or request something specific for my reservation?
In the confirmation email, you’ll be able to modify your reservation (link is near the bottom). Cancellation policies are also on the bottom.
When you reserve a car through the widget above, there will be a section for you to add comments. If your request doesn’t get addressed within 48 hours, please contact us (include name and reservation number) and we’ll patch you through to our Adobe partners straight away. We want all our readers to have an excellent experience!
