Top tips for hiring a car in Los Cabos

  • Los Cabos is a small municipal town found south of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico. Renting a car in Los Cabos is pretty easy. All you need is a driver’s license to show your driving proficiency. The good news is you don’t need an international driver’s license to rent a car. Your driving license issued by your country of origin is sufficient for driving within the city. However, to avoid conflict with the law, ensure your driver’s license is valid and not expired.
  • Before you rent a car in Los Cabos, you should also have an idea of the type of car you wish to travel in. Your car rental company may not have an exact model but will give you an option whose features and design match what you want. Some common types of rental cars available in Los Cabos include sport utility vehicles, open-air all-weather vehicles, passenger vans, small family cars, minivans, and classic convertibles.
  • Mexican auto insurance is mandatory for all foreign drivers. So, before you rent a car, you should have liability insurance purchased from a licensed insurance company in Mexico. This protects you against any claims that may come from injury or damage to people’s property. However, your liability insurance doesn’t cover any intentional damages you may cause while driving.

FAQs about hiring a car in Los Cabos

  • Should I hire a car in Los Cabos?

    If you stay in an all-inclusive hotel during your visit, you may not need a car, as the hotel will make travel arrangements for you. However, if you wish to explore some of the most amazing destinations within the town alone, you’ll surely need to rent a car. This will help you travel efficiently and quickly between various towns and tourist attractions. Los Cabos is one of Mexico’s top tourist destinations, known for unique aquatic parks, scuba diving, nice weather, excellent accommodation, and sandy beaches. To save on transport costs, only rent your car for the actual number of days you’ll use it.

  • What is driving like in Los Cabos?

    It is generally safe for first-time visitors to rent a car and drive across the town of Los Cabos. The town is a secure city for visitors who choose it for their vacation. Safety on the road is enhanced by speed limits that should be followed by all motorists. Ensure you drive within the recommended speed limit for your safety and to avoid being fined for reckless driving. The average speed limit for driving in Los Cabos is 55 mph. Safety on the road is also enhanced by speed bumps installed randomly. As you drive, you’ll come across warning signs that tell you if you have a speed bump ahead. As you drive, be sure to watch out for animals like cows that may cross the highway occasionally. Most of the cattle that cross the road move slowly, so you have little to worry about. However, you still need to slow down in animal crossing zones to reduce any chances of hitting an animal.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Los Cabos?

    In Los Cabos, the minimum age requirement for renting a car is twenty one years old. Despite this, some car agencies still allow car renting for underage drivers aged twenty one to twenty four years old. So, if you are below twenty one, you can still rent a car at an additional cost. You will pay a young renter’s fee on top of the normal rental charges. Car agencies prefer levying an additional fee to underage drivers because they are considered inexperienced. They are, therefore, likely to be involved in an accident, unlike older, experienced drivers. The young renter’s fee varies with the renting agency and is charged on a daily basis. In addition, if you want a premium or larger vehicle for your trip in Los Cabos, then you should be over twenty five years old. Los Cabos also has a maximum age limit set at seventy four years old for all car renters.
