Top tips for hiring a car at Tijuana Rodriguez airport

  • Two major advantages of getting a car rental at Tijuana Rodriguez Airport (TIJ) are convenience and flexibility. In contrast to traditional public transportation options like buses and trains that follow fixed schedules and routes, renting a car from one of the Tijuana Rodriguez Airport car rental companies would allow you to drive to your destinations on your own departure timings and routes. Some of the destinations to consider visiting with your rented car are Avenida Revolución, the Tijuana Wax Museum, and Parque Morelos.
  • If you plan to get a car rental at Tijuana Rodriguez Airport (TIJ), take note of the minimum age requirements. Most Tijuana Rodriguez Airport car rental companies have adopted 21 as their minimum age limit for renting a car with no maximum age limit. You should, however, note that some car rentals such as Hertz, Avis, ACE, and Enterprise have adopted a young driver’s surcharge for drivers aged between 21 and 24. They may also limit the type and models of cars young drivers can rent to include only compact, economy, and minivans.
  • To ensure a smoother rental experience with more options to choose from, it's advisable to plan your visit to the car rental counters at Tijuana Rodriguez Airport (TIJ) on normal weekdays. During major holidays like Easter (Semana Santa) and weekends, there are often long queues at the car rental counters, resulting in frustrating delays. Additionally, the high demand during holidays and weekends may lead to limited availability of car types and models. At times, the onsite car rental at Tijuana Rodriguez Airport (TIJ) may also increase their car rental charges based on the high demand.
  • If you intend to return your rented car from Tijuana Rodriguez Airport car rental companies urgently, maybe due to the emergency that forces you to cut short your vacation in Tijuana, take advantage of the after-hour return policy that has been adopted by most car rental companies including Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz. The policy allows you to return your rented car outside your Tijuana Rodriguez Airport car rental company’s regular operating hours. You should, however, remove all your belongings, record the fuel and mileage levels, drop a copy of your car rental agreement on the driver’s seat, lock the car, and drop your keys in the designated after-hour drop box.
  • Book your car hire at Tijuana Rodriguez airport at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Pros:

Only the car.

Cons:

When I made the reservation it said protection was included, but at the pick up time, they charge me an additional cost for insurance at almost the price of my three day rental. It was 70 dlls more than the 28 for the rental price. Please notify this before when you announce a price.

Our pick up time was 11am and after having trouble crossing the border in a timely manner we got to rental agency at 12:30. They said we were too late to get a car at the agreed upon price and that it would be another $160 to get a car, after prepaying $128. My guess is they pull this switch all the time if you’re not a fluent Spanish speaker.

I went to the Hertz rental place that was on the Kayak website and it wasn't the correct rental place. The place Kayak setup was in Mexico not the Untied States so I had to call Hertz to change my rental. Then the price doubles + for the rental because it was the Hertz rental at the Airport. I was not happy at all. And the car they offer me is a Dodge Journey and they are junk too many buttons in bad places, very bad design. But I take it because I am all ready leaving and hour late. No I was not happy and will look else where next time I go.

My reservation with Hertz called for the car to be picked up at San Diego Airport on Saturday at 3PM. When I got to the hertz pick up location I was told that someone had changed my pick up location to another Hertz office on the US side of Tijuana, Mexico, some 30 to 40 minutes away from the airport. Furthermore, there was no shuttle service to the alternate location. This was unsatisfactory to me and did not meet my requirements. As a result, I was forced to rent with some "no name" agency that normally services high risk customers. The rental from them was significantly more expensive, the car, although it ran well, had over 220,000 miles, had numerous scratches, a cracked windshield, worn upholstery and the cruise control didn't work. Furthermore, one of the tires kept leaking air and I had to put air in it on 3 different occasions. Based on this experience, I would not recommend Hertz or KAYAK nor will I use them in the future.

Robert at the pick up office was not at all helpful. Apparently this rental was for San Diego airport in Tijuana even though I entered San Diego Airport and my flight information. Robert said oh did you use Kayak? This happens often and was going to charge 2X what my original rental was saying the taxes were higher. Almost $600 for 5 day rental. I told him I was a Hertz gold member he didn't even try to look it up. This was 8pm at night stranded at the airport with luggage etc. I declined and went next door to Enterprise and payed a bit more than my original reservation from Hertz. Disgusting customer service and trying to overcharge whe someone was in a difficult situation. I went.

You need to change your survey form - these guys DID NOT HAVE OUR CAR - AND I PRE-PAID. My wife and I were left stranded, with all of our luggage, after a lengthy journey, at the time we said we would be there....standing on the curb at Tijuana Airport...where the Green Motion clowns TOLD us to stand, and to call them so they could pick us up to bring us to our car. They gave us BS stories about staff not showing up, were going to call us back (but didn't), told us to get on some bus at the airport... We had two Mexicans trying to help us with the jerkwads at Green Motion. The whole experience seemed like a scam operation. They claimed to have not charged us, but I haven't yet sorted the bills for my recent vacation, which went fine with the flights, cruise, whale watch, hotels, etc. Everything on the 25 day trip was fine, except for the goons at Green Motion. If it turns out I have been charged, I will be in touch for a refund.

Cons:

Mexico has a long way to go in meeting US standards, even for US brands. No matter what you call to confirm, the extras accumulate. We reserved and PAID for a larger, newer Jeep SUV. We got a smaller, dirty, dented, old Nissan SUV. Despite calling ahead and confirming the details, they told us that despite my PLATINUM Mexican insurance, I would have to give a $15,000 USD deposit if I didn't purchase their third party insurance, billed separately, for 100% of the cost of my rental - doubling my cost. Additionally, they wanted a $1000 USD deposit - which i talked them down to $350 - also unplanned. And on return, they found about 10 hairs in the car where a dog sat on my lap for a few minutes outside my house. That was a $50 charge. Keep in mind that in Mexico, a premium car wash at a modern facility is $3-5 tops. I asked them for a brush and they refused. We then argued about the mileage, which was unlimited - he slipped a gas charge on that i had removed - since i returned the tank at 100% - filled just outside the location. Then he tried to charge for every scratch he found - which was all found on the pre rental check. It was a 30 minute return of arguing and gauging - very unpleasant and of course, you're in a rush to catch your flight.. Then he tried to tell me the charges were in USD and gave me an absurd exchange rate - 15.5 instead of 17. The rate is always in pesos - with your bank doing the conversion - so he would have reconverted back to pesos anyway. Very, very disappointing.

Pros:

The car was clean and it got us from Tijuana to Loreto safely.

Cons:

This was my first time using Thrifty to rent a car. They wouldn't be my first choice in the future, though the workers at the store were nice the car wasn't great. It didn't do well with any road that wasn't in perfect condition so the car ride was bumpy and loud. In addition the car didn't do well on gas. The bathroom facilities at Thrifty were disgusting as the toilet didn't work (left over bathroom waste was left in the toilet) and there was no running water or hand sanitizer so I'm not sure how coworkers washed their hands.
38 travellers who hired a car in Tijuana Rodriguez Airport gave the car agency they used an average rating of 3.4
