Top tips for hiring a car in Mexico

  • Outside of major cities, parking is generally unrestricted; however you should take care to only use designated parking lots and well-lit areas if you rent a car in Mexico. Street parking can either be metered or regulated by automated machines, so carry some pesos with you in case credit cards are not accepted. Additionally, there are few assigned spots for disabled parking, so take note if you fall into this category.
  • All major highways and expressways in Mexico have toll stations, and not all of them accept credit cards; therefore, having some change on your person is a good idea. There are alternative routes around toll stations that you may choose to use, and though the drive is a bit longer, the scenery should prove more interesting.
  • If you didn’t pick up a rental at the airport when you arrive and later decide you wish to do so, there are some companies, like Alamo, that will deliver a vehicle to your door free of charge, as long as you are staying in a major city. If you wish to share driving duties while in Mexico, there are fees that apply for any additional drivers, for example around 133.75 MXN (7 USD) with Alamo.
  • For those who are serious driving enthusiasts, cross-border travel is not typically permitted when you rent a car in Mexico, so you cannot explore Central American countries like Belize or Guatemala unless you make your own arrangements. That said, some companies, like Alamo, will permit you to travel across the US border from select cities, including Monterrey, Tijuana, and Mexicali.
  • Book your car hire in Mexico at least 5 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Mexico are around 1% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Standard car hires in Mexico are around 97% cheaper than other car types, on average
