final car rental selection question?

WE are looking at three car rental companies for our 3/10 trip.

Pick up and return to Liberia.

Companies are National, Dollar and Tricolor.

Does anyone have anything good or bad to say about these choices or does it matter?

Other advice in regards to car rental in CR would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Ted NC Coast

I haven't worked with Tricolor or National yet, only with Dollar. I highly recommend them.

As far as I had heard, Tricolor is not in Guanacaste any longer, only in San Jose, so check with them first on this (and update me please!). I have never booked with the others. I always use Europcar.

Good luck!

i did get an e-mail quote from Tricolor. I told them I was needing a car in Liberia, so unless there is a misunderstanding they are still there. Their website also still shows a Guanacaste location also.

Thanks for input

I have heard good things about Tricolor in San Jose, I assume they are reliable in Liberia, too.

crpuravida you are right, Tricolor no longer has an office in Guanacaste. Apparently they overlooked Liberia in my request e-mail. In the end they wanted 75.00 extra for p/u and drop off ( 150.00 total ), which put them out of consideration price wise.

We decided to go with Dollar.

Thanks again to all for info / help.
