I know this has probably been covered, but I need a good rental car company recommendation.
My husband and I are going early July for a week and I have heard horror stories from friends and family members about breaking down and excess charges.
We are only going to one hotel in Arenal and doing small day trips. I heard the road to Arenal does not require a 4x4, but was maybe considering renting one.
Right now I am tossing up between a 4x4 through Budget Rental and a compact car through Toyota Rental. Budget seems cheaper even with the mandatory insurance at $307 for a week. I am just not sure if I can pay in advance- which has been recommended. However, I heard Toyota has reliable cars...
Any advice would be appreciated.
