Pros: All good
9.6 ExcellentApr 13 2018
Thrifty Came Through In A Pinch!Pros: I had a vehicle reserved and paid in full from another rental agency but when we arrived there was no car so we went over to Thrifty. The Lady at the airport counter was very helpful and worked with me book a car with the best discount. Once we got to the car the associate who did the walk around was very polite and helped us pack our luggage. The car was clean, ran well and we had no problems with it. At first I was not sure since the car was smaller than what I was looking for so I only rented the car for 1/2 of our trip but ended up extending for the full time.Cons: Insurance was way too expensive! It was much more than the daily car rental price and is mandatory. All rental Agencies in Nicaragua are the same way.

Surprise!Pros: The man in the lot was personable and very helpful. The office folks were good.Cons: There was a required insurance that came as a big and expensive surprise.

IrresponsibleCons: The vehicle i reserved was given to somebody else. When i came to pick it up they didnt give me a good reason as to why. They just didnt have it anymore.
5.6 OkayFeb 23 2018
In Nicaragua they force a $14 insurance per day on top rental priceCons: Took forever to get our car. Then they forced us into paying $14 a day for added insurance. I had called my auto insurance and credit company and was well aware that we didn't need it and that if we got added insurance they wouldn't cover a thing. Yet, they wouldn't let us rent the car without adding that. So the price I thought I'd pay for two weeks was going to be great.... After all that we ended up paying quite a lot! Really frustrating! Then the "economy car" was pretty much a mini car. ;/ Could have been the country we were in, but they could have spelled these things out much more clearly so we'd know what we really owed when we got there.
10.0 ExcellentJun 28 2017
Pros: Everything was so good by the agents who took care of me in their
9.6 ExcellentApr 18 2017
Nice car. Goid servicePros: The car was ready, very clean and handy and we were expected at the airport. I am quite satisfied. Dollar company quite easy to locate in Managua airport. People quite kind and helpfull. Kayak answered promptly to my question. However I would prefer a telephone number which could be easier.Cons: Very difficult to reach the company dollar from France. Impossible to have a phone number. It would be highly appreciated to have the exact total amount of the rental before getting to the airport. The taxes and additionnal fees are a really bad surprise and almost double the initial announnced cost.
2.0 MediocreFeb 3 2017
they didn't want to take my credit card insurancePros: good carCons: they lied to me when i got to the airport they told me to get daily car insurance I told them that I got my credit card insurance (amex) with a letter for them in hand. they didn't accepted it and didn't want to give me the car until I accepted the other insurance I never happen to me I never gonna get a car from them again

Suzuki Grand Vitara rentalPros: Car worked well, we did use the 4WD on two occasions and we're glad to have it. Previous rental in Nicaragua did not have 4WD, so we learned from that. You must be OK with manual transmission. Main roads are fine but to get to hot springs, some beaches, waterfalls roads are rough.
8.8 ExcellentDec 13 2016
great experiencePros: easy to book great staff at pickup/dropoffCons: we were charged a mandatory Nicaraguan 'insurance' fee that was not noted at time of online booking... the fee added almost $200 to our booking which is a lot, and the agent at the pickup said it should'be been on the website as it is a nationwide policy. not very impressed to fork out additional $200 because of an oversight on your part

Not goodPros: The car was clean and in good shapeCons: -It took 2 hours with the ''representative in training'' to have the car -The ''insurance'' available on KAYAK is not good in Nicaragua, you have to take one from the renting company, so don't pay 70$ for nothing. Overall experience was not good.

2.0 MediocreJan 1 2017
Cons: They didn't have the car I requested. They offered a different car but it was to big for me to store it. I called back the next day to check and sss told they couldn't help me.
2.0 MediocreDec 26 2016
Didn't have the car I reservedCons: I got to Managua and went to the Alamo counter in the airport. I had reserved an automatic car and all they had were manuals. I had to cancel my reservation and spend the next hour and a half trying to find an automatic car. I won't use Kayak again for an international rental car.
10.0 ExcellentNov 28 2016
Great service!Pros: Everything. Service picking up and dropping off were both great.Cons: Nothing.
6.0 GoodJul 26 2016
Didn't have car originally reaervedPros: Friendliness, professional attitude of employees, car rented did the job and saved some moneyCons: I had reserved a large SUV but they only had pickup trucks. I ended up getting a small crossover SUV which was cramped with the luggage we had.
8.0 ExcellentJul 21 2016
Nicaraguan prices quoted online are not accurate.Pros: Ease at airport, ease of return, quality car.Cons: Long check in time initially, prices are double to quintuple what quoted on site. They force you to buy insurance in country, which is somewhat understandable, but unlike in the states it can make the price quoted by Kayak go up by 500%. We got a rental on Kayak for $90. When we got there it was $541 for full coverage. Luckily we were able to do something for $227, but that is still more than double the quoted price. Need a system to incorporate insurance add ons in advance or ppl will continue to feel duped as we did.
