Cancun Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

A mecca of nightlife and beach parties, Cancun is one of the tourist trademarks of Mexico. But while the city itself undoubtedly has lots to offer, getting a rental car will give you access to a number of other interesting destinations of the Yucatan peninsula. With that in mind, these are three of the most fun day trips from Cancun:

  • Chichen Itza. Located a good two-and-a-half-hour drive southwest of Cancun, Chichen Itza is nonetheless worth the long trip. The largest Mayan site in Mexico, this pre-Columbian city is best known for the impressive Pyramid of Kukulcan (also known simply as El Castillo) and its sculptures of feathered serpents, but the rest of the temples and sites are just as awe-inspiring.
  • Cozumel. Another very popular tourist destination, the island of Cozumel is known for its beautiful coastline and as a hub of scuba diving and snorkeling, chiefly thanks to the reefs that surround it; the island is also home to the Chankanaab Beach Adventure Park and Arrecife Alacranes National Park (also called the Scorpion Reef). A drive south from Cancun takes about 2 hours and 30 minutes and includes a ferry, so ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit it. 
  • Sian Ka’an. One of the most beautiful nature areas in the region, Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is known both for its diversity of flora and fauna and for its ecologically conscious tours. Made up of a tropical jungle, mangrove forests, and even a barrier reef, the area is home to unique wildlife species like kinkajous, ocelots, and coatis. There are tours you can join, but it’s possible to also visit the reserve independently, although, depending on the areas you want to access, you might need a 4x4 vehicle. The drive from Cancun takes about three hours. A trip to Sian Ka’an can be combined with a visit to Cozumel or to the nearby Mayan site of Tulum.

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.
