Long Term Plan

Renting a telephone for more than 90 days is very costly.  We have therefore developed a Long Term Rental Plan for people who either are planning to move here and need a phone or for those who may visit Costa Rica frequently for pleasure or business and do not wish to pay the regular rental rates.

Basically, under this plan, you will own the cell phone and we will rent you the cell phone number (line).  This is by far a more economical plan than renting under regular rates. 

For more information, please CALL us at:

From the USA877-268-2918
In Costa Rica 2293-5892
From Other Countries +506-2293-5892

Other Terms and Services:  Please read carefully.

  • Important:  Free minutes are included in all plans.  These are cumulative and the total minutes can be used at any time during the rental period.

    On Plans 1 and 4, the minutes are unlimited.

  • Delivery and pickup are FREE for all rentals of at least seven days or longer. There is a drop off charge for any rental where the phone is returned at an airport area other than the one where you arrives. Example: San Jose arrival - Liberia departure. This charge is $40.00

  • Phone is delivered with accessories, including an owners manual. 

  • A telephone security deposit of $125-$250 (depending on brand of telephone) is due upon delivery.  We also require a usage deposit based on the length of the rental period.  You will receive the exact amounts in our confirmation email.

  • First Period rental is also due in full at time of delivery.

  • You must have a valid email address and phone number for all rentals.

  • You are responsible for all damages to the phone and accessories.
    We will program you Voice Mail with a message in English or in Spanish. 

  • We can add toll free 800 service to a Plan 3 phone.  This service adds an additional $1.50 per day to the Plan 3 rental rate and additional $0.20 per minute for all minutes used in excess of the free minutes provided.  If you desire a toll free number added to your Plan 3 rental, please mention this in the Comments area when you reserve the phone. 
    Note: Toll free service is NOT available to be added to Plan 1 or Plan 4 phones.

  • About 75% of Costa Rica has cell phone coverage.  We can make no guarantee if you will have service everywhere you travel. Nearly all heavily traveled tourist locations DO have coverage, but the only way to know for sure would be to call (not write) to the locations you will be traveling and ask them if there is cell coverage where they are.

  • Rates subject to change at any time without notice, but we never change rates for confirmed reservations.  You are protected!

Discounts

Note:  We offer a 10% discount from the RENTAL per minute rates only, to members of the Association of Residents of Costa Rica - ARCR.  To receive this discount you MUST provide your current membership number in the comments section of the reservation form.  You must be a paid member at the time of the rental and  at the time of the reservation!

Rental rates are subject to change without notice.

Who Needs an 800 number?

Here are the three most common reasons:

  1. Parents with children whose cell phones are blocked for international calling.

  2. Business people who want their clients to be able to r4each them but NOT pay for an international call.

  3. People with aging parents or other family who want a simple way to call internationally without having to deal with international calling and country codes
