The staff was helpful but there was so many complications and hidden fees and my insurance purchased with Allianz as recommended by you guys wasn't valid. It took us 1hr+ to simply pick up the car...Honestly, if there are any hidden fees, please tell us beforehand, nobody likes these type of surprises.

NothingThey could have honored my reservation. It's was cancelled while I was on my way to Colombia with no explanation or warning. When I talked with them, they were of absolutely NO HELP. Could not explain who canceled or for what reason. TERRIBLE customer service. Will not use them again. And will think twice before booking thru you!!

Didn't say clearly about 1000 usd deposit!Wow! That should be clearly stated and in bold print! Who rents a car with a 1000 usd deposit for 2 days??!Really deceptive advertising on the part of budget rentacar and kayak! I am really unhappy with this and will probably never use kayak again. I always use kayak and now won't.

Car hire excess insurance in Medellín

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Medellín car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Medellín.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Medellín car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Medellín

  • If you want to make the most out of your time in Medellin, undoubtedly the best way to do it is to rent a car. There is a plethora of wonderful day trips you can make from the city that will transform your vacation into a trip you will never forget. For instance, the lakeside town of Guatape is just 85 km (53 miles) away and it is worth every kilometer driven.
  • Looking to pick up a hire car after your flight to Medellin lands? Travelers with flights landing at José María Córdova International Airport will find the hire car counters on the ground floor of the airport’s main lobby.
  • One thing to keep in mind when driving in Medellin (and Colombia in general), is that there is a strict no drinking and driving policy. It is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol content above 0.04% in Colombia, whereas in the United States the legal limit is 0.08%. To put this in perspective for drivers, just two drinks risks you being over the legal limit. So make sure to drive safely and never drink and drive.
  • Rush hour traffic in Medellin is not the most severe but it can certainly put a damper on your day if you get caught in the heart of it. Drivers looking to avoid the congestion are best off avoiding the road between 6:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. As far as traffic goes, the neighborhoods of El Poblado and El Centro are often some of the most congested areas in the city and are best visited during non-peak traffic hours.
  • Book your car hire in Medellín at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Medellín are around 32% cheaper than other car types, on average
