Cons:Skip this place. They didn’t have a vehicle even though it was booked weeks in advance. They wanted a previously undisclosed deposit that happened to be outrageous. I couldn’t get a refund because I purchased in advance. They said they had a pickup and drop off at the airport, and didn’t find out it was 5 miles out until arriving back at the airport. This whole process was a disaster. I went with Europcar rentals instead, they were transparent, they had an airport location, and they had vehicles available.Reviewed Nov 2 2019

Don't waist your time or moneyPros:Nothing, the place just tries to scam you.Cons:They didn't have a car available when we arrived at the time of our reservation. We were told it would be available 8 hours later. We were then told that if we were willing to pay significantly more (like 5x the originally quoted price) then, alas, they did actually have the car we reserved available. After wasting a long time trying to negotiate something close to what our original quoted price was we eventually gave up and used one of the name brand rental car companies instead. Bottom line, don't waist your time with economy rent a carReviewed Nov 29 2018

Pros:Staff was helpful and pick up and drop off were good.Cons:The price quoted on Kayak website is not accurate. The cost of about $5/day is really about $23/day because of required insurance, even though other websites covering car rental is Mexico say the insurance is required to be included in quoted prices. Note that they will put a $1500 hold on you credit card for possible car damage even if your credit card covers any damage to the car. Also note that what they call an intermediate car is really a compact. Otherwise interaction with car local company is good. Rental date April 2021.Reviewed May 7 2021

Pros:Car was clean and price was relatively inexpensive.Cons:The car had a dying battery which we had to replace ourselves out on the road. They reimbursed us for the battery and cables (that we bought to try to jumpstart the old one), but they didn't reimburse our taxi and time costs. Also, insurance prices are very high and they all came upon signing papers.Reviewed Jun 29 2021

Pros:Unfortunately, checked in early to receive a car! There were no cars to be had.... this was around 830am, told me she should receive one by 5pm in the evening! That did not work as were driving 5 hrs away to the beaches! Will not rent from this company again! Very disappointed....Cons:Offer the car that is promised to the guest!Reviewed Jun 3 2021

Pros:Despite our many problems (see below), the staff were relatively friendly and helpful. (For example, the manager provided us with his personal cell number when we called to express our concern that the engine light had gone on and we were afraid of breaking down on a remote road somewhere.)Cons:Our problems were many. Kayak linked us to carrentals.com which announced on their website that the rental price included the liability insurance required by the Mexican government. However, there was nothing mentioning this on the confirmation documents that we received and Economy Rentacar told us that we needed to buy our own policy @ $18 US per day. (They did lower it to about $16 per day after we complained.) They told us that the car we rented was a 2019 model but the registration said it was a 2015 and it looked and ran like it was even older. It had not been cleaned in a very long time and was filthy inside. It had dents, scratches and peeling paint on almost every square inch, really a piece of junk. We have rented cars all over the world and this was by far our worst experience. A bad mark for Kayak and car rentals.com as well, we felt ripped off from beginning to end.Reviewed May 30 2021

Pros:Nothing what so ever. The price of the vehicles entirety should be included with the pricing when checking out. When arrived the price of the vehicle was triple more than initially paid for online. I got scammed for my money. I would never recommend this to anyone. Never again.Cons:To put the price of the vehicles entirety when purchasing the rental.Reviewed Sep 7 2019

Not an airport pick up - misleadingCons:Rental office is not at the airport and hasn’t been for about 3 years apparently. This is misleading and causing your website users wasted money in a non-refundable deposit and wasted time getting a rental from the airport. First and last time I’ll use your website for car rental search and will certainly never use carrental.com again. Massive disappointment.Reviewed Mar 11 2018

Not helpfulCons:The office did not open at 8am like it said it did online so I called and waited awhile had breakfast and finally called the HQ in Costa Rica. They must have called someone because finally they opened. The car was terrible. I did ask for a vehicle that no one would steal but this was pathetic. Before I left I asked about the lights on the dash - like the engine light, the oil light and two others were always on. Whats up with that? If this was my car it would be at the shop. The water to clean the windshield was full but it did not work, The only thing automatic about this car was the transmission everything else was not. The car had over 110,000 K or 68000 miles. Then the brakes. One time I hydro-planed to a red light. : ( I kept calling and asking for a different car - I even came back in and asked for a different car. The excuses went from we don't understand you to we will have one tomorrow to this is the only car. I finally just returned it after the hydro-planing and decided I would take taxis or walk -- it was not worth it to end up dead.Reviewed Nov 9 2015

Horrible ExperienceCons:They rented us a car with NO BREAKS after a HUGE HASSLE and UPSELL at the counter. They were not at the counter when we arrived, it took almost 12 hours to finally get a car (which was of a lower class than reserved but they did not offer any concession), then they forced us to buy optional insurance (so we got less car for a lot more money than our reservation), and then when we started on our way the car's breaks failed after 5 miles!!!

It didn’t happenPros:We didn’t rent the car because liability was more than the rental and when we told them liability was supposed to be included in the rental they didn’t budge.Reviewed Mar 24 2018
