Important information about Cancún car hire

Rental cars in Cancun are an attractive way to navigate the city’s attraction sites, like the Scenic Tower & Xcaret, Urbano Kabah Park, and El Meco Archaeological Site, all of which are a few minutes from Cancun. Hence, Cancun car rentals are your top choices for easy mobility to these and other sites. The commonly used road is Highway 180 that connects to other roads like Interstate 63E. Coming from major airports like Cancun Airport and Cozumel Airport, you can use a cheap car rental, like a people carrier rental, to drive yourself around the city. Parking in the city is easily accessible. Preferably, use safe street parking near facilities like a grocery store or hotel for temporary parking. For long-term parking, consider Cancun Airport parking or iPark. In a beautiful city like Cancun, drive yourself for an up-close and easy-going trip, and there are more than 50 car hire locations in Cancun that you can choose from.

While visiting, is it worthwhile to rent a car while visiting Cancun?

Cancun is among the most visited destinations globally, particularly during holiday seasons, for its sunny weather. Consequently, traffic increases during these seasons. On normal days, traffic in Cancun is congested during rush hour, so you want to avoid mornings, late afternoons, and evenings. Cancun is largely spread out but still walkable, especially due to the comfortable pathways leading to restaurants and shopping malls. However, most leisure attraction sites like the Mayan Ruins of Chichen Itza and beaches like Chac-mool are long-distance. You can rely on a cheap car rental in Cancun for flexibility and convenience.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind while driving in Cancun?

There’s a lot to explore apart from the obvious archaeological sites, and hired cars in Cancun are a suitable option for easy navigation. Before you embark on driving in Cancun, it’s helpful to keep out of trouble by knowing some road rules. For instance, the speed limit is controlled in kilometres. Be vigilant of highway speed limits because they change regularly, and ensure not to go over the assigned speed limit. Also, note that it’s legal only to make left-side highway exits on Cancun highways. If you’re planning to travel with a child, legally, they need to be in the back seat with proper seat belt fastening. You can request children’s car seats at any hired cars in Cancun. Like in many cities, drunk driving in Cancun is unlawful. If you get involved in an accident due to drunk driving, your insurance will become invalid. The blood alcohol limit in Cancun is 0.04%.

Can I across country borders with a rental car from Cancun?

Rental companies will not restrict you from driving rental cars in Cancun around Mexico. You can also go outside of Mexico, but you need to uphold some restrictions. One restriction is that you cannot cross the border into South or Central America with a vehicle rented from Cancun car rentals. Some rental companies allow you to cross the border into Central American countries like Belize. In such a case, you will need to make an additional deposit on the rental car, which is refunded when you return the rental in good shape. Crossing the border to the United States is permitted by some rental companies, depending on the company’s location. You will need to inform the rental company that you will drive into the United States with the rental car at the time of booking. For companies that permit you to cross into the United States without restrictions, you will need to pay an additional fee and daily tax.

Can you hire a car in Cancun without a credit card?

Car rental locations in Cancun require insurance coverage before you can rent a car. Your most suitable payment option is a credit card. Credit card issuers like Visa and American Express provide rental car insurance coverage. The coverage is, however, limited to economy car rentals, limiting your rental car options. It’s recommended that you confirm with your insurer about the type of hired cars in Cancun they can cover. You do not need credit cards when reserving hired cars in Cancun with many rental companies. If you do use a credit card, you only need to present the card when you pick up the rental car. The name on your credit card should match with the name indicated on your driving license, and you will need to provide both these documents on the rental counter. The signature on the rental agreement form should match that on the back of the credit card. You will also need to make a damage responsibility deposit on your credit card. This amount will be refunded at the end of the renting period when you bring back the car in a good state. Debit cards are generally not accepted for rental cars in Cancun.

What documents does an international traveler need to rent a car in Cancun?

You can only rent any cheap hired cars in Cancun if you are older than 18 years. The age restriction varies on the type of car you wish to rent. You can rent higher category vehicles like an electric car rental if you are at least 25 years. Ensure that your driving license is at hand when you want a car rental in Cancun. If your license is not in English or Spanish, you will need an international driver’s permit. You will also need a passport that bears a coloured photograph for identification purposes. Present both these documents on picking up the rental car. The papers should not be expired; they should be valid for the complete renting duration. You will also need to show a temporary Mexican travel visa, which you will receive upon your arrival in Mexico.
