Why rent a car in Mexico?

Mexico is a great country for renting a car. With stunning nature, great cultural variety, and access to two oceans, it is a fun place to explore at your own pace. Travel hotspots like Mexico City, Cancun, and Cabo San Lucas are world-famous, but visiting some of the lesser-known parts can be just as rewarding.

Mexico

Top ways to enter Mexico

  • Mexico City Airport: Also known as Benito Juarez Airport after the former president, it is by far the busiest in the country and handled more than 46 million passengers in 2022. The airport offers flights to and from a plethora of destinations in the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia.
  • Cancun Airport: Serving the popular vacation destination, Cancun Airport has flights by more than 40 airlines connecting it to destinations all over the world.
  • Guadalajara Airport: Serving the capital of the state of Jalisco and Mexico’s second-largest city, Guadalajara Airport handles about eight million travelers every year. The airport hosts tens of flights to destinations in the rest of Mexico and the United States.
  • Merida Airport: Providing access to another holiday destination in the Yucatan, Merida Airport is fairly small, but offers connections with such destinations as Houston and Miami.
  • Los Cabos Airport: Named after a popular vacation spot at the southern tip of Baja California peninsula, Los Cabos Airport is especially busy during the tourist season when it hosts the flights of more than 20 airlines, many of them connecting the area with cities all across the United States and Canada.

Top cities and places to visit

  • Mexico City. When Spanish colonizers arrived in the area of modern day Mexico City, it had already been a political and religious center for centuries. Nowadays one of the largest cities on the planet (with a metro area population of over 22 million in 2022), it is rich in both historic Aztec sites, splendid architecture, and a thriving contemporary cultural scene.
  • Cancun. A synonym for partying and beach vacation, Cancun is arguably the most popular travel destination in Mexico. The city offers both of the aforementioned activities in abundance but also provides access to the caves, nature areas, and islands of the southern state of Quintana Roo. Cancun is the starting point for those travelers wanting to visit the popular beach towns Playa del Carmen, Tulum, and Cozumel.
  • Pacific Coast. The tropical southwest of Mexico is another haven of idyllic beaches and developed resort towns. Some of the most notable spots include Puerto Vallarta in the north and Acapulco in the south, but many travelers prefer the relatively less visited coastal spots in between.

Most popular rental car

The most popular rental car in Mexico is the Kia Rio, although many travelers also go for the Chevrolet Aveo and the Hyundai Accent. The most popular rental car types are compact, economy, and intermediate.

Both manual and automatic rental cars are available. Make sure to request an automatic if you do not know how to drive a manual car.

While a smaller car is perfectly good for traveling along the main highways or exploring the cities (and might actually be preferable in some urban areas due to the remaining historic planning), getting a 4x4 might be a necessity if you plan to explore Mexico’s nature or mountainous areas.

Driver's license requirements

  • Mexico recognizes foreign driver’s licenses if they are in Spanish or English. However, some rental car suppliers require you to have an International Driving Permit (IDP). Make sure to check the driver’s license requirements of the rental car supplier before booking the vehicle.
  • If your driver’s license is in another language, you need to have an International Driving Permit (IDP) to drive in Mexico.
  • Even if you have an IDP, you still need to also provide your valid driver’s license from your country
  • You must carry your driver’s license, not a copy, with you at all times. 
  • You need to have had your driver’s license for at least two years. 
  • Some rental car suppliers charge a young driver fee for drivers between the ages of 22 and 25 and a senior driver fee for drivers over the age of 65.
  • There may be additional requirements depending on the car supplier and category, so make sure to check the rental conditions before booking.

Crossing borders

Mexico has land borders with three countries: the United States, Guatemala, and Belize.

There are very few car rental companies that permit one-way rentals between Mexico and one of the neighboring countries. When such deals can be found, typically this will include trips from destinations that are near the border (e.g., from northern Mexico to the United States or the Yucatan to Belize). You can search for car rental companies that permit international one-way rentals by entering your car pick-up and drop-off locations on our search. 

Do keep in mind that each of the countries has its own visa policy, so you may or may not be required to have a visit. Visitors from most Western countries can visit Mexico and all three of its neighbors without a visa, but there are exceptions. If you plan to visit Mexico and one of its neighboring countries on the same trip, make sure to consult your Ministry of Foreign Affairs in advance.

Toll roads

Mexico has an extensive system of toll roads due to a government program started in the 1980s to update the country’s road system. The Mexican toll road system is called Cuota. Toll booths are located along the highways at the end of sections of the road, therefore, on a long ride, you can pass through multiple toll booths. While credit cards used to be accepted, drivers can now only pay with either cash or an electronic tag placed on the car’s windshield. The electronic tags may be available from your rental car provider but usually comes with a fee. However, the fee is usually just a one-time fee for the tag, not a daily fee as in other places like many places in the United States. ATMs are few and far between along the highways, so be sure to keep plenty of cash to pay for the tolls. 

Compared to other countries, Mexico’s tolls can seem rather expensive. It is possible, however, to avoid most toll roads as Libre (or free) roads usually go alongside them, though they are much slower to travel on due to going through many villages along the way. This may make for more scenic travel on short trips but would certainly hinder progress on any long trips.

Make sure to check your gas tank before getting on a toll road. If you are on a long toll road, be prepared for there to be no gas stations or other services along the way. We suggest topping up with gas beforehand.

Most popular types of rental car

The most popular type of rental car in Mexico is an economy, followed by intermediate and compact. Manual cars are typically cheaper than automatic, and, therefore more popular.

Top driving routes

  • Jalisco. A large state in central Mexico, Jalisco has a decent stretch of the aforementioned Pacific coastline — but the inland parts can be just as interesting to explore. The state is the birthplace of Mariachi music and Tequila, the location of the country’s historic second city, Guadalajara, and has a number of well-preserved pre-Columbian sites, not least of which is the circular pyramids of Guachimontones. 
  • Baja California. A long and narrow peninsula separated from the rest of Mexico by the Gulf of California, Baja California is distinct from the rest of the country both in terms of culture and nature. The region boasts some of Mexico’s nicest beaches which are dotted with resort towns and surfing hotspots, but it also offers unique desert and volcanic landscapes. 
  • The Yucatán. A large peninsula physically separated from the rest of Mexico, the Yucatán is much more than just the beaches of Cancun. Made up of five states, the region has a wealth of historic Mayan sites, and is also known for national parks, ecotourism, cenotes, less popular beach towns, and a thriving indigenous culture.

The best part of my trip was meeting Enny Vera - an Avis employee who most likely saved my life by not letting me drive in the middle of the night on a highway without my phone and made me stay that night in Cancun. I was absolutely exhausted from having a rough day filled with flight delays and hours of searching for my stolen phone with the airport security. She lend me her old phone for the duration of my stay in Mexico and helped me get in touch with relatives in NY. It is thanks to her that one of the worst days I could have had turned into one of the most beautiful ones. She showed me that in today's world filled with wars and injustice there are still people who care about others and offer kindness when it is most needed without expecting anything in return. She gave me hope, the most precious gift we can ask for these days. People like this are true gems and deserve to be recognized. I hope that you will have a chance to meet her.

Renting a car is a great idea for exploring the Mayan Riviera at your own pace. We at times changed plans during the day and made detours as desired. Roads are decent and toll roads are in excellent shape. Police are present throughout the area. We hit cenotes, ruins, beaches, shopping markets, lagoons, landmarks, snorkeling and many restaurants. We’ll be back!

If you intend on renting a car in Mexico make sure you get a vehicle with plenty of height clearance. The number of speed control bumps (Topes/reductors as they are called in Mexico), the pot-holes and general condition of many of the roads made this easily the most stressful car rental experience I have had in a foreign country. Proceed with caution - but if you are renting a car in Oaxaca, Thrifty are the way to go.

Definitley rent a car if staying in Tulumm especially if staying in the town center and not the hotel zone. You can then drive to restaurants becasue walking from Alda Zama is hard since is it sooo dark (no street lights). You can also drive to other places. Chicken Itza then Ik Kil Cenote and Casa Tortuga and the canal float out of Muyil are must dos.

I am horrified at the environmental destruction of the construction of the Mayan train and all the fat American tourists that go to the golf clubs and all inclusive Disney-esque hotels. We tried to avoid that and experience true Mayan culture and leave-no-trace visits to the biosphere reserves to view nature and wildlife. Mexico shouldn’t try to be like America. It’s awful here. Please protect your wildlife from being exploited.

Las Grutas de Tolantongo is a one of a kind place you have to see! Go on weekdays when the crowds aren't crazy. Stop through wine and cheese country between Tequis and Bernal on your way back.

The car was great and the service once we got to the rental facility was great. No hidden costs. And they upgraded us due to the annoyance of waiting for an hour to be collected. Overall a good experience.

We spent a wonderful month traveling around the Yucatán with our 4 kids, and made lots of memories. Wish we had spent more time in and around Valladolid, and maybe a bit less time in Holbox (it’s priced like a US resort). And Bacalar was incredibly beautiful! Definitely worth the 3 hour drive to get there. Tulum was definitely overrated, although Akumal was nice and Xel-Ha was a perfect way to spend a day with the family.

Ask for nearest gas station at pick up so when you do drop off you can add petrol to car just before returning (because of trafic in MC we spend to much fuel)

Always purchase the insurance ahead of time, get the best insurance you can if it's at a good rate. In Mexico, they will try to push insurance down your throat, in a way intimate you into getting their insurance. Take a walk around video of the car upon delivery. Do not negotiate on another vehicle, simply say you want the one you paid for and expect to receive it soon. Do not fall for their continuous extortion, keep asking for your vehicle and have a print out ahead of time of your rental, that comes in handy and is very useful to prove them you already have insurance, you paid for it and that's the vehicle you expect to get. The return was a lot easier, no issues there.

if staying at an all inclusive resort & don't mind making your tour reservations through the resort, a vehicle is not required. But if want to control your time, save money, don't mind driving and using your GPS the car is not needed. It's very hard to get lost since the area has 1 main road.

Look out for speed bumps in unusual places, they are not painted so you can't see them from a distance - the signs showing there is a bump is not always there

There’s so much to do in the Mayan Rivera you’re costing yourself time and money not renting a car. A car is everything there, you have to do it or you miss out, period.

The people at the car rental desk were friendly and helpful, the issue we had was that they only had stick shift available. They did end up bringing an automatic transmission in. But it took time. Also the windshield wipers were torn and it started raining about a half hour after we left. Other than those two issues I would say it was a mostly positive experience. Would I rent again? Yes. The convenience of having our own vehicle was wonderful.
