April 7, 2024

Pros: Nothing. Nos entregaron un coche con numerosos desperfectos (tantos que no se podían detallar en documento de entrega de vehículo), no obstante , nos indicaron que no había ningún problema ya que la compañía ya era conocedora de los desperfectos. Al devolver el coche nos los atribuyeron y nos hicieron pagar 850USD (bajo la amenaza que si no los pagábamos nos retendrían la fianza completa). Les pedimos las fotografías o documentos que avalaran su versión, no los tenían, evidentemente.

Cons: Aprovecharon que no habían recogido los numerosos desperfectos existentes en el coche en el momento de entregárnoslo en el documento de entrega, solo los habían marcado genéricamente, para atribuírnoslos en el momento de la devolución. No nos permitieron hablar con la persona que nos había hecho la entrega y nos cobraron por unos desperfectos que NO HICIMOS un total de 850USD. Además las formas con que nos atendieron fueron muy desagradables, negándose a a tendernos.

Pros: Much less expensive that what seen at other car companies.

Cons: Hours of operation. We put that we would return the car at 5 am and they do not open until 7 am. Car was in poor condition and we were surprised it made the week. They tried to say a pre-existing window chip was our fault, but we were fortunate to have a video showing the chip was already there.

February 19, 2024

Pros: Friendly staff, location close to airport. Drop off was great, quick and efficient.

Cons: Hard to find rep at airport. Given automatic car but manual was requested. No parcel shelf in vehicle making it unsafe to leave anything in boot even for short periods. Old vehicle with lots of marks that all had to be identified at collection.

United Kingdom
Hyundai Tucson
February 16, 2024

Pros: Efficient in arranging the car and dropping it off.

Cons: The car chosen was not available and the “similar” was not similar, but an old Suzuki Vitara with over 150k kilometres on the clock, with warped brake disks and the brake pads were on their way out. Started squeaking on the second to last day. The car had a few bumps and knocks e.g. the front bumper was not sitting correctly when we collected it and the trimming inside the car was tired. This was noted on collection and no issues were raised when dropped off.

January 2, 2024

Pros: Nothing - booked months in advance and upon arrival their shuttle bus driver told us discovercars had cancelled our reservation and that they had no cars for us. We were left stranded at the airport during high season and spent 4 and a half hours extra to try and organise a rental car with the unofficial guys standing around on the street. Still didn’t receive back the $212.17 down payment made to discover cars despite already being in contact with them since the day this happened.

December 19, 2023

Pros: Good value for money, very quick handling of the rental when picking up / dropping off the car (once we actually got to the agency office), polite staff and comfortable car, just as described.

Cons: 1) Finding the Staff at the airport was tricky as the sign said "USave Rental" and not "MEX Rent", so we went on a few rounds until we found the representative 2) Be aware that the car office is not at the airport (which we knew about), but despite close distance the traffic there is terrible so it took us +1h to get to the rental place after we found the agent, and also to get to airport after we dropped the car.Just be aware and incorporate that in your planning!

November 27, 2023

Pros: It was a horrible experience, my flight was slightly delayed, just a couple of hours for a long 11h flight across from Europe just to find out that because of my delay the car had been attributed to someone else and there were no more cars available from this rent a car for me. Hard to believe and extremely disappointing. Also they charged me. So now I’m going to take legal action against rent a car and discovercars.com. Overall avoid both services.

Cons: They didn’t give me a car or a replacement or any solution. Totally disappointing and requiring legal action.

October 13, 2023

Pros: I landed at San Jose airport and I had to call the staff to ensure I’d get picked up but they stayed after closing time to make sure I received my car! Check in process was very smooth and they accepted my credit card rental car insurance (CDW) so the rental ended up being extremely cheap! Checkout process was also very smooth and they dropped my off to the airport afterwards as well. Very kind staff. I loved that 3rd party liability insurance was included thru DiscoverCars.com.

Cons: The gas tank was at 1/8 so it was a little troublesome giving it back at 1/8 but was fine.

Pros: Car was of good quality (new car, ran well), no hidden charges, no fake charges on pre-existing damage to the car. Price was ok

Cons: In the discover car rentals, I booked full coverage for the car, however when I arrived, the agent explained that the full coverage booked was with Discovercars and not the car rental company. Meaning if something happened, I would be charged by the rental car company and then would need to take it up with Discovercars. It would be helpful if signage of this would be more clear

January 12, 2023

Cons: Provided a car with a poor clutch that gave out to me and took hours for roadside assistance then charged me $2,000 for towing and a new clutch. They assured me they would provide all documents and invoices that week so I could file an insurance claim but it took multiple emails insisting to received the proper documents to file the claim. It seems like they charge $2,000 which is much higher than the actual expense with hopes of making more money from the insurance company.

Pros: Professional agents, short time for picking up and dropping off the car. The rental price and the car was exactly the one at the time of booking. I had additional insurance from Discover Car and the agents from Mex did not try to sell me another insurance. The 2500 USD safety deposit was returned at the desk after dropping off the car and it was immediately available on my card. I definitely recommend Mex Rent a Car San Jose and will rent again from them on my next trip to Costa Rica.
