Hyundai Grand i10
March 20, 2022

Pros: Quick, easy, hassle free

Cons: They advertise their rates as comprehensive but there was still another type of insurance to be purchased to cover part of the excess that external insurance supposedly doesn't cover. In total - more expensive than renting a car in Europe or the US.

United States of America (USA)
Mitsubishi ASX
December 28, 2021

Pros: Adobe tried their hardest to fix the problem that they said was caused by discover. Dropping off the car was much easier than the pick up.

Cons: Lost reservation, two hours of dealing with a problem that should have been compensated for the customer better. Per discover it was Adobe’s fault for booking the reservation at a different location and per Adobe it was discovers fault for moving the location without notifying the customer.

United States of America (USA)

May 8, 2021

Pros: Overall great experience. Costa Rica has certain insurance requirements for car rentals but booking through discover cars, the minimum was already included in the price (although, not required, but I ended up getting full coverage through Adobe in country just for peace of mind. The roads aren’t the best down there) Car was fairly new and clean. The employees are bilingual (Spanish/English). The shuttle service to the airport was quick. Again, overall great experience.
