Credit Card & Safety Deposit

Credit Card & Safety Deposit

No, you cannot.

Safety deposits will only be accepted thru a valid credit card. Cash, checks or traveling checks are not accepted.

It will depend on the protection option you choose to cover our car.

The standard security deposit amount is US$1,500.

At the time you pick up the car, we process a hold to your credit card that works as a security deposit plus the estimated rental amount in another hold.

If the car does not have any physical damage, it will take up to 10 days to have the hold released by your bank.

In AVIS Costa Rica we accept: American Express, Mastercard and Visa.

Note that only CREDIT cards are accepted.

The credit card is to guarantee the rental at the time you get the car at our office.

Debit Cards and credit cards without raised numbers are not accepted in Costa Rica.
