We just rented from Antonio at Cactus. But its still not a deal breaker as long as you know you will pay it for a rental with any company. Some of the other companies have more hidden fees that you don't find out about until you pick up the car. Last year we rented from Europcar because of the low prices and regretted getting talked into committing to an aggressive and time consuming time share presentation stressful and not worth the token gifts in consideration for a vehicle upgrade, discount, and passes for the glass bottom boat. Best cars, service and rates! If you are the thick-skinned type that likes to get free stuff you can muscle up and wheel and deal with Europcar for a vehicle upgrade, attraction tickets, cash etc in consideration for appearing at a full-tilt time share presentation. . What a rude and shocking start to our vacation! Avis is by far the best car rental agency at the airport in.
When it was time to leave, we just dropped the car off at the same lot where we picked it up and locked the keys inside. You should check rates and see if it is better to take the shuttle and then pick up the car at the resort. Dominic makes it so easy. Cash or credit and a slightly higher price, but folks rave about the personal service. He met us at the airport and helped us carry our luggage a short distance to the car.
Just walk straight outside and find the shuttle driver then be prepared for the upsell at the counter after you confirm that they have cars available. He is the manager of Alamo at the airport. If you rented through Travelocity or Expedia your confirmation should include an explanation of what is included with the price mandatory liability insurance is usually included - there are extensive posts on this topic elsewhere. Any suggestions as to which rental car company would be best: Budget, Avis, Alamo, National, Dollar? I think Kevstang rented with Europcar. He has a new email address that now goes directly to him. There were there waiting for us when our plane landed and Antonio drove us directly back to the airport. Its always better to prebook a car and have them quote you the walk out the door cost including all taxes and insurance.
I don't think that the fact that you already have a time share will disqualify you. Got shafted big time in Feb 2012 by Europcar. We rented a very nice small Hyundai four-door sedan for eleven days. That way you can compare prices. Otherwise, best advice is to not talk to agents at airport, walk straight outside, take shuttle to counter, and brace yourself.
No hastles with the price. He used to work for Alamo but has recently changed to Cactus Car. We took a shuttle to our hotel and are getting by without a car this time. Help available any time lock yourself out, lose the key, get a flat tire, get lost on the way to , whatever. He is a local businessman with a slightly older fleet of cars as well as some brand new ones.
There is probably no penalty for cancelling your res with Europcar unless it it pre-paid so I would suggest booking with one of the more dependable companies. I would highly recommend him. It will raise your rental cost. Avis includes most of those. Just be aware of the mandantory mexican insurance that you must get. Ask for a TripAdvisor rate that includes required insurance. .
