FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

You'll find dozens of spots to soak up the sun all around the Riviera Maya, but the one unmissable beach is Playa Delfines.

Tip

Hoping to spot sea turtles? They're a protected species and local environmentalists take them very seriously. Egg laying season runs between May and October, when you might see turtles coming ashore at night to lay their eggs. To see them in the water, pick up a car rental in Cancun and head south to Akumal Bay where you can snorkel among the turtles.

***

Getting to Chichén Itzá

When you find cheap car rentals in Mexico, you'll be able to discover this magnificent country at your own pace. Make Cancun your base to explore the surrounding region and be sure not to miss out on Chichén Itzá, where you'll see an ancient Mayan pyramid.

It takes about two hours to drive to Chichén Itzá, so pick up your Cancun car hire and hit the road. Leave early so you'll be able to spend a full day exploring this historical site before returning to the city in time for dinner.

There's something to suit every taste and every budget, whether you're an adrenaline junkie or looking for something a little more sedate. With your car hire in Cancun, you'll be able to comb the coast looking for the best activities.

Some of the more popular water sports that you'll find around the beaches of the Riviera Maya include paddleboarding and snorkeling. You can also learn to scuba dive or hire a jet ski for a faster paced trip around the water. The truly daring might even experiment with flyboards or jetpacks!

Nightlife in Cancun

You already know that this city is a top spring break destination. If you want to party with college kids, you'll have plenty of options – but there's another side to Cancun, too.

In your cheap car rental in Cancun, you'll be able to head off the beaten track and find jazz bars or enjoy some Latin salsa rhythms. If you really want to have an authentic Mexican experience, there are mariachi bars with traditional bands playing. Whatever you want, it's on offer in Cancun.

What's the best way to travel around Cancun?

Rental cars in Cancun will help make your vacation easier. If you're just staying within the city limits, you can get by without a vehicle – but low cost car hire in Cancun will open up a lot more opportunities. You'll be able to visit the stunning beaches of the Riviera Maya as well as historical sites like Chichén Itzá or nearby villages. You'll also have a safe spot to keep your belongings while you hit the waves!
