Car Hire in Costa Rica - How picking the wrong car hire deal could mean you are hit for thousands!

We guide you through Costa Rica car hire to save you money

Costa Rican car hire is almost unique in that, along with an excess on their own rental vehicle, customers may also be liable for an excess on damage to third parties or their property. With claims possibly running into thousands of pounds, this could leave you with a serious problem. With excesses on third party claims set at 20% of the total, a large claim for $100,000 would leave you with a bill for $20,000 - not the way anyone wants to end their holiday. You can avoid this unwanted scenario by using our sister site, Clarify Car Hire. They offer car hire in Costa Rica without a third party excess.

Clarify Car Hire are specialists in car hire in Costa Rica. They know the pitfalls that can arise and seek to provide their customers with the best possible experience with their Costa Rica car hire. Clarify Car Hire offer customers a solution - a way of avoiding a massive debt which could ruin an otherwise idyllic holiday in this breathtakingly beautiful country. When searching for car hire in Costa Rica, customers can use a filter to select companies that offer third party insurance with no excess. Combined with an independent car hire excess insurance through the MoneyMaxim comparison service, car renters in Costa Rica can relax and enjoy exploring on their holiday.

An alternative solution, if your car hire includes a third party excess, is to purchase an independent SLI (Supplementary Liability Insurance) policy through MoneyMaxim Excess Insurance Comparison service. This will certainly save you money compared with facing a bill for repairs but these are reimbursement policies. That means you will need to pay the bill at the end of your car hire period and then reclaim through your chosen insurance provider.
