Rental car insurance and credit card coverage

In general, are car rental agencies in Costa Rica accepting credit card insurance for collision and loss coverage? I seem to remember some companies being very insistent on requiring customers to purchase CDW. Anybody have recent first hand experience? Thaanks.

Sunrayeh, if you would ask that question an answer will be given to you. By now you have surely read all the relevant info. Suspect nothing, come prepared. I wish you an excellent holiday in Costa Rica.

well, they should! Most of the car rental companies will try to sell to you their own insurance.

My recommendation is always call directly and ask for a total price including taxes and quoted with the insurance provide by your credit card.

My contact Luis from Dollar Rent a Car can help you, you can contact him by phone or hoteles@dollarcostarica.com.

I just posted on this as well! I was trying to rent with Mapache, and they told me they required a CERTIFIED (yep, all caps) letter from Visa to allow me to waive their CDW coverage. I emailed them the letter Visa provided, and was told they still couldn't authorize waiving their coverage. Maybe when I arrived it would be ok, but maybe not... That's not good enough for me, so I'm looking elsewhere.
