Important information about Jacó car rentals

Can I drive to other states, regions, or countries with a rental car from Jaco?

Getting a car rental in Jaco is a convenient way to explore the Puntarenas province as well as the rest of the country, but there are basic qualifications necessary to make this happen. You must be at least 18 years of age with a valid driver’s license whether you’re using a major provider like Enterprise and Avis or a local one such as Zuma or Adobe Rent a Car. At most of the car rental locations in Jaco, surcharges apply for drivers under age 25 (who will also need about 2+ years of experience on the road). Costa Rica is bordered by Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the south and it’s possible to drive your Jaco car rental across both borders. Policies differ according to the agency, so be sure to ask a few questions when reserving a vehicle. At Enterprise, for example, a change of vehicles is required at each border, in effect closing one contract and starting a second one for travel in the foreign territory. Additional fees also apply in both instances.

Can you rent a car in Jaco without a credit card?

To secure a cheap car rental in Jaco, you’ll need a credit card whose credentials (name and signature) must match the owner of the driver’s license. Major firms like Enterprise will authorize a $500 hold plus the full cost of the rental as security, but at others like Avis the minimum hold can be as much as $2,000 plus rental costs. In each case, Enterprise allows the additional flexibility to settle your tab using a debit card (MC/Visa, AMEX, Discover) whereas Avis doesn’t accept debit cards of any type for car rentals in Jaco. Finally, the use of credit cards with/without raised numbers varies from agency to agency. Avis is one that does not accept credit cards without raised numbers in Costa Rica.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Jaco?

While driving an economy car or passenger van rental around Jaco, there are some basic road rules you should remember. Driving is done on the right side of the road and you may encounter a fair share of one-way roads/streets so knowing how/when to yield will be an asset. Also, all road signs in Costa Rica are in Spanish and many don’t have English translations. To get around this we recommend brushing up on local signage and carrying a few notes with you before commencing any road travel in Jaco. On the town’s main roads, the maximum allowable speed is approximately 50 mph and about 37 mph on secondary roads. This is reduced to about 25 mph in residential zones and around 15 mph near schools and hospitals. The seatbelt laws pertaining to children are very strict in Costa Rica, so it is essential you are familiar with the specific height and weight references when traveling with kids aged five and under. The BAC limit is 0.05% and operating a car rental in Jaco under the influence of any substance is strictly prohibited.

What documents does an international traveler need to rent a car in Jaco?

Costa Rica is one of the countries that don’t require you to hold an International Driver’s Permit (IDP) as a condition to rent a car if you’re spending less than three months in the country. At the very least, therefore, a valid passport with a proper visa, an unexpired domestic driver’s license and a good credit card are sufficient to get you on the road. Learner’s permits and other temporary licenses are not eligible to operate a rental vehicle in Jaco under any circumstances.
