Important information about Tamarindo car rentals

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

When you book a car rental in Tamarindo, you will have the right to drive your vehicle throughout different regions of Costa Rica without having to worry about any specific limitations or rules. However, it’s important to keep in mind that you typically are not allowed to bring a Tamarindo car rental across the border to another country, such as Nicaragua or Panama. If you would like to travel between different countries by driving, you will instead have to arrange to switch out your car rental in Tamarindo with a vehicle from a different country at the border of your choosing. It’s important to keep in mind that many companies may charge you an additional fee for returning or renting a car directly at the border.

Can you rent a rental car in Tamarindo without a credit card?

When you reserve a car rental in Tamarindo, there are many companies that will require you to pay for your rental with a credit card, even for cheap car rentals in Tamarindo. However, there may be some solutions if you do not have your own credit card to pay for your reservation. For example, some companies allow individuals to use a family member’s credit card to pay for their rental vehicle, as long as the family member is present, able to provide certain documentation, such as proof of residency, and can sign documents stating that they will be paying for another individual. In addition, you may be able to find a few rental companies and branches that accept debit cards rather than credit cards, but this is typically rarer and will vary substantially depending on each office.

What driving laws or regulations are important to know in Tamarindo?

Whenever you’re operating a car rental in Tamarindo, it’s critical that you’re up to date on regional driving laws in order to stay as safe as possible. For example, it is not legal to pass another vehicle on the right in Costa Rica. If a child is under the age of 12, they must be in a proper child’s seat. If your blood alcohol content is more than 0.05%, you are considered to be driving under the influence. It is strictly prohibited to drive on a beach unless there are no alternative roads connecting two cities or towns.

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

Even if you do not have a driver’s license issued by Costa Rica, you usually can still rent a car in Tamarindo, including an electric car rental and a passenger van rental. To successfully reserve a vehicle, all you will need to provide is your original passport, along with your original driver’s license, whether that is from a foreign country or is an international license. Both of these documents should always be valid for the duration of your rental period. Your selected rental company will make photocopies of each of these documents in order to keep them in your official file, then they will return the original copies to you. You may be asked to pay an additional fee or a larger deposit for being an international traveler that is renting a car. While most companies usually ask that their customers be a minimum of 21 years old to rent a car, you will find that there are some companies and branches that require international customers to be at least 25 years old in order to successfully rent a vehicle.
