Top tips for hiring a car at Managua Augusto C Sandino airport

  • Car rentals at Augusto Cesar Sandino International Airport are ideal for getting to Managua and other locations. They are convenient, particularly for travelers with arrivals at the airport, as they save travelers the hassle of waiting for public transport means. With car rentals at Augusto Cesar Sandino International Airport, travelers can quickly drive to all the attractions in the city. 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. The car rental counters are a short walk from the arrivals and area travelers can follow signs of the car rental center to the facility. There is no need for shuttle rides since the distance is an easy walk within the terminal. There are 14 car rental agencies located at the airport with vast options for car categories. Some car rental agencies offer 24h services, but most companies open from 5 am to 9 pm.
  • 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. Travelers can also book online with major car rental companies to skip the counter and pick up the car rentals from the parking lot upon arrival.
  • Book your car hire at Managua Augusto C Sandino airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Pros:

Cons:

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.

Pros:

Service was quick and easy.

Cons:

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.

Cons:

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.

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.

Pros:

Do 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.

The drop-off attendant delayed my arrival at the airport because of his vehicle inspection. He insisted the front bumper was loose and in need of repair, but provided no proof that any evidence of pre-inspection or damage occurred. After conversing with his manager. I was allowed to leave and shuttled to airport. His behavior is a poor example of how to treat customers in a competitive space that utlize his company service as a convenience. Next time i will consider using a global brand instead of a local company.

Pros:

Didn't have to pay extra for all the dings driving in Nicaragua. Pretty cheap rental for 2 weeks.

Cons:

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.
