Traveler’s Tip: The use of baby or child booster seats are mandatory in Costa Rica for all children under 12 years.

Car Protection is separate and covers damage to the rental car. This can be declined only if you can show proof that you have collision damage waiver coverage through your credit card supplier.[/read]
