Cancun Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Why not get your rental car right at Cancun Airport? Cancun is all about the beach, and many beautiful public beaches are just a short drive from the airport. Besides swimming and working on your tan, you can try out scuba diving, surfing, and other fun water sports and activities.

When you want a break from the beach, how about driving your rental to the amazing MUSA museum of contemporary art? It’s fully underwater and features Cancun’s symbiotic relationship with the marine life surrounding it.

If you’re up for a longer drive, take your rental to Chichen Itza—these ancient ruins of the Mayan civilization are a must see. On the way back to the city, be sure to visit the Parque de las Palapas in the center of Cancun. There you’ll find a great selection of local handicrafts and delicious Mexican food.

Cancun is fascinating, but Mexico has lots more to offer. Get a long-term car rental and explore the Yucatan jungle, head north to Mexico City, or cross the border to the lesser known, but equally fascinating Belize and Guatemala. You can even pick up your rental car at Cancun Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your Mexico adventure today!

FAQ

Will I still be required to purchase insurance from the rental company when I arrive or will this be the final price?
Whether you will be required to purchase insurance at the rental desk depends both on which rental company you choose and in which country you reside.

Many rental companies do not include collision damage waivers (CDW) for customers from the United States and Canada. If your car insurance or credit card does not cover rental cars in Mexico, you will be required to purchase a CDW at the rental desk.

A CDW is almost always included for international customers. However, some companies (particularly MEX) do not include third-party liability insurance in the price and you will have to purchase it at the rental desk. Look at each offer carefully to make sure both a collision (or loss) damage waiver and thor-party liability insurance are included to avoid having to purchase them at the rental desk.
Can I drop off the car at Merida International Airport?
Yes, it is possible to drop-off for you to drop off the car at Merida International Airport. You need to request this in advance. The easiest way to do this is to search for a rental with pickup at Cancun and dropoff at Merida International Airport. The results will show what cars are available and the total price shown will include the one-way rental fee.
Can I rent a child seat from the rental company?
Yes, it is possible to rent a child seat at the rental desk. In many cases, customers can also request a child seat during the booking process.
Is it possible to drop off a rental car in Mexico City?
Yes, customers can drop off their rental car in Mexico City for an additional fee. To see which rental companies offer this, make sure to use your preferred drop-off location when searching. The results will include the one-way rental fee in the total costs making comparison simple.
Can I rent a car with a debit card?
Yes, a few companies accept debit cards. Customers wishing to use a debit card might need to purchase extra insurance from the rental company in order to do so.
Can you confirm that car will be a diesel car?
If the car’s description states that it is a diesel vehicle, it is guaranteed to be a diesel vehicle. If you have problems at the rental desk, please contact our Customer Support team.
