Stuff and all was outstanding.The insurance that is offered by the third party makes no since because when you pick up the vehicle they make you take their insurance or else they won’t rent you the car. So don’t offer the third party insurance.

Good value rental value not offset by police corruption and harassmentService was quick and easy.Due to police harassment of tourists, identifying them by the rental decal on the car and personal appearance, I turned in my car after one day, rather than keeping it for my entire 10-day visit. I was stopped for no reason within 2 miles of the airport the day I rented the car. I was able to persuade the officer not to ticket me, pleading that I had only picked up the car five minutes before (he claimed I had "illegally changed lanes," a favorite, unproveable local police charge). I confirmed later that day with local friends that police harassment in search of bribes was now rampant in the country. I returned the car as soon as possible and plan never again to rent a car in Nicaragua.

Personnel at airport were very helpful in making the vehicle available earlier than requested. As soon as the vehicle was returned by previous user I was called to go pick it up.After driving the vehicle I noticed a noise and took it to a close by location. I was told that I could take the car to their service department to get it checked the next day, drive it and call for road assistance if something went wrong while driving, or return the car since they did not have other vehicles available. I was scheduled to go to a nearby town and had hotel reservations for the night. I had to cancel my plans for that day, returned the car the next day and had to find another company to rent from at a higher rate.

Hello? I bought it saying "Jeep Wrangler or equivalent". It was in reality a Suzuky Jimmy! which is basically a lifted Smart to me. I had to bargain to get a Toyota 4wheels drive. The places I needed to reach in Nicaragua sometimes know 2ft of water. I didn't pay for a Jeep to be fancy... On top of that, I paid twice the liability insurance: one time to you, and another time to Budget once picking-up the car. I had no other choice if I wanted them to give me the key. It was a mediocre experience and I would like my $12/day liability refunded if you expect me to go back with Kayak again in the future. Best Regards, Guillaume Venturino.

The customer service agents at the airport desk were pleasant and helpful.The Suzuki truck we rented was in very, very bad shape. To make matters worse, upon inspecting the car one of the tires was completely flat. Not surprising as they looked like the original tires - 50,000 miles ago. The representative proceeded to fill the flat tire and tell us it would be fine. Well - of course, a day later, we were changing the tire during the middle of our vacation. The most disappointing part of all, is when we returned the car: we notified them of the issue, they checked tire, found the hole but put it back in the truck as the spare tire. We repeatedly tried to tell them the tire needed to be replaced or at the very least repaired but they told us it was fine. Most unfortunate for the next person who rents that car.

Thrifty Came Through In A Pinch!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.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.

Good valueDidn't have to pay extra for all the dings driving in Nicaragua. Pretty cheap rental for 2 weeks.The fact that the price on the National site did not reflect the extra $12/day I had to pay for obligatory "no fault" insurance. Thus doubling the cost for the rental period.

Not goodThe car was clean and in good shape-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.

Didn't have the car I reservedI 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.

8.0 ExcellentJul 21 2016
Nicaraguan prices quoted online are not accurate.Ease at airport, ease of return, quality car.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.

5.6 OkayFeb 23 2018
In Nicaragua they force a $14 insurance per day on top rental priceTook 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.

Nice car. Goid serviceThe 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.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.

Suzuki Grand Vitara rentalCar 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.

great experienceeasy to book great staff at pickup/dropoffwe 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

False pricing by Kayak and AceDo not be fooled by the price shown. ace makes you a buy some “mandatory” insurance adding almost 16 bucks a day. This despite buying the insurance offered by Kayak. And good luck getting any help from Kayak. Do not recommend at all! Rent from the company directly. And definitely not from ACe.Misl adding prices s by Kayak.

Car rentals offer travelers comfort and privacy that they can’t find with public transport. Travelers can save up on time and money with car rentals by avoiding fare hikes and schedules that come with public means.
  • Picking up car rentals is easy for travelers with arrivals at the airport. This is because Augusto Cesar Sandino Airport features plenty of car rental companies on site.

  • As soon as you are ready to drop off Augusto Cesar Sandino car rentals, drive back to the airport. Almost all car rental agencies have the same pickup and drop-off areas. If you picked the car rental at the airport, it is better to drive back to the airport to avoid extra charges. If your car rental has a full-to-full policy on fuel, remember to fill up the gas tank to prevent the additional unplanned cost. For travelers unsure of the exact address, input address Km 11 Carretera Norte, Managua, Nicaragua on the GPS and drive to the facility. Companies that do not offer 24h services offer after-hour returning options. If you opt to drop off car rental during after-hours, leave the contract and the keys at the dropbox near the car rental counters. Ensure you have taken out all your stuff from the vehicle before returning the keys.
  • Various seasons, holidays, and days of the week can be hectic at car rental companies. This is because of many customers waiting in the front of car rental desks. They include Mondays, Fridays and Sundays, Christmas, and the festive season. If you need to pick up car rentals and do not want to wait at the car rental center, consider picking up car rentals at off-site locations. There are offsite companies with free shuttle rides to and from the airport, but travelers must make prior arrangements for these services.
