KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Guanajuato

  • Using car rentals in Guanajuato comes with various advantages. The city's intricate layout and diverse attractions make having a car rental in Guanajuato convenient for exploring at your own pace. Unlike relying on public transportation, a Guanajuato car rental provides flexibility, allowing you to reach off-the-beaten-path destinations and attractions that might be challenging to access otherwise. With a car, you can efficiently navigate the city's hilly terrain and explore surrounding areas, maximizing your travel experience and convenience. With Guanajuato car rentals, you can visit areas like the stunning Mummy Museum, the historic Alhóndiga de Granaditas, and the picturesque town of San Miguel de Allende.
  • If you fly to Guanajuato, you'll likely land at Bajío International Airport (BJX). Bajío International Airport (BJX) houses many car rental companies within the airport premises. Upon arrival, proceed to the baggage claim area, and you can find the car rental desks of different companies in the international hallways. Some car rental companies will also offer complimentary shuttle services to the rental facility. To settle on the best deals, consider visiting the KAYAK website for the airport's car rentals and compare the rates before your flight.
  • Driving car rentals in Guanajuato is an unforgettable experience due to the city's beautiful scenery. Navigating the roads in Guanajuato requires a balance of caution and adaptability. The driving style can vary, but generally leans towards calm and patience. While rules are respected, they might be interpreted more flexibly. Expect a mix of bicycles, pedestrians, and occasional jaywalkers, particularly in the city center. Common vehicles include compact cars and taxis, with fewer trucks than in other Mexican cities. Embrace the local driving culture, exercise patience, and stay alert to enjoy your road experience in this vibrant city fully.
  • Driving car rentals in Guanajuato can pose challenges due to narrow, winding streets and limited parking options in the historic city center. Rush hours, typically from 8 am to 10 am and 5 pm to 7 pm, can be congested, especially on avenues like Alhóndiga and Calzada de Guadalupe. Navigating through tight spaces might be daunting for those unused to such conditions. Additionally, the intricate road network can lead to confusion. Opting for alternative transport during peak traffic times or exploring on foot within the city center can ease these difficulties.

Cons:

When we arrived late evening in Leon and went to the Europcar counter, our "reservation" didn't mean anything. The people in front of us were dealing with the same issue - there was one car, two of us with reservations, and both of us had a price quoted that was DOUBLE what our reservation said. (they added in insurance, a different location drop off fee and a commission, even though none of that was mentioned in our reservation). We ended up walking away and taking cabs for the week. DO NOT RENT FROM EUROPCAR and don't think your reservation means anything.

They wanted to charge $900 for insurance which is more than double the rental amount. So we cancelled but they refused to give us our money back for the reservation. A total ripoff!
