4.0 OkayJun 8 2021
Pros: No the person who attended was very very arrogant he don’t give us any opportunity to make arrangements for the rental
6.0 GoodJun 5 2021
Pros: El staff muy amables en todo Momento y hace si trabajo bien y rápido en todo momento Muy atentosCons: Lo que pueden hacer mejor es decirte el Total desde que reservas tu carro y q la aseguranza q ofrece kayak no es válida y vas a tener q pagar el Doble del total que te dieron al reservar por la aseguranza q tienes q comprar con la compañía
4.0 OkayJun 1 2021
Pros: They don't respect the reservation
2.0 MediocreMay 26 2021
Cons: Tell me beforehand if you’re going to charge double extra for insurance. (I even called to confirm.) Ended up not renting the car.
10.0 ExcellentMay 16 2021
Pros: Fast processCons: The pricing on insurance
8.0 ExcellentApr 18 2021
Pros: Staff very friendly and easy and fast drop off!Cons: The price!!!! It was a little to expensive for the time of the season and the type of car I rented and how there is no set price to rent a car. I recommend my nephew to rent a car from there too and he got a smaller car, for fewer days and more expensive than my rental.
6.0 GoodJan 27 2021
Pros: Staff was good but not very helpful, they gave me a quote over the phone and then try to change me over $300 dollars more of the original reservation o had made. We came to a "negotiable" price but still paid more than expected from the phone quote.Cons: I honestly think they should stick to their prices it's no the first time this happens to me, not by Alamo but all the time is the same. Prices are rediculously higher when you are there to pick up than over the phone or even from the kayak app.
2.0 MediocreJan 5 2021
Cons: Car was not available at pickup, staff were unhelpful and blamed me for using third-party booking site
2.0 MediocreMar 17 2020
Cons: The car I reserved was not honored for me at pick up, instead they gave me another car that was not ready to be released. Halfway through my trip the oil warning cane on, checked the engine oil level and it had almost nothing so I HAD to BUY oil for this car to keep the engine from blowing. Not happy at all.
10.0 ExcellentMar 2 2020

Pros: Nothing. I arrived with a confirmation number and was told there was not a car available for me. I was left on the side of the road with no transportation in a foreign countryCons: Everything!

5.2 OkayFeb 3 2020
Pros: Customer service representatives were friendlyCons: The company making you purchase additional insurance was annoying when I had already purchased it through a third party company. Additional 260 was not necessary
3.2 MediocreJan 2 2020
Cons: The vehicle couldve been in better conditions. The driver’s seat was broken and the seats were dirty. Also, I reserved a Jetta and they gave me a Vento. They would not honor my reservation for the vehicle I reserved.
2.0 MediocreDec 20 2019
Cons: The whole experience was a mess! Ordered a Suburban, got a dated minivan. Took 2 hrs to prepare the car. People before us had waited 3 hrs. Most unorganized and disappointing experience with a rental I’ve ever had.
4.4 OkayNov 8 2019

6.0 GoodJan 10 2021
Cons: Letting customers know the real price, and telling them that is now required to buy full coverage insurance, and the price for it doubles the price for the rental,
2.0 MediocreJan 3 2021
Pros: Do not rent here!! They lied to us about the car rental. Want more money (3x more). They blame all the to Kayak website do not have their inventory and intend of a full size car they want to have me a mini compact manual car from early 2000’s with a lot of damagedCons: No not offer this company anymore I contact Hotwire and cancel this reservation. They told me that they try to scam us. I prefer to rent my own vehicle with budget
2.0 MediocreDec 24 2020
Cons: I had made a reservation for a vehicle with plenty of time in advance and when I show up to pick up the car, they said they no longer had the car available. They couldn’t respect the reservation price or anything.
2.0 MediocreJun 24 2019
Cons: I reserved the car with an 11AM pickup time. I called the local office to confirm that this was correct. I reached the airport and the person working there said that they didn’t have anything available, and that their system showed the reservation as 11pm. We were not able to rent the car.
5.2 OkayApr 2 2019
Pros: The vehicle I rented was availableCons: Insurance costs were not disclosed and turned up to be three times the rental cost.
8.4 ExcellentSep 18 2018
Hidden costsPros: Everyone was friendly and helpful. We were shuttled to the rental agency and given a car. The car was clean and comfortable. Dropping the car off went smoothly and quickly with no delay getting us to our flight on time.Cons: I was led to believe the price quoted online would include everything. Upon arrival we were informed of the mandatory insurance which was way more than the cost of the rental. It was definitely not what I expected to pay. They also put a very high hold on my credit card while we had the car. I would have liked to know about all of this before booking.
8.0 ExcellentMay 11 2018
CarPros: The car was ok.Cons: The insurance price was triple the price of the car.
2.0 MediocreDec 15 2017
Cons: Price was not accurate
10.0 ExcellentJul 27 2017
Great servicePros: Got a brand new car and staff was very helpful
2.0 MediocreJul 7 2017
Terrible experience !Cons: Car was not in a good mechanical condition. Everyone seemed to be fine until 3 days after driving the car. The breakes were not working! I considered that to be a major issue; i was afraid I'd be in a higher risk of getter no into an accident. When I called they concluded by saying "We only act when the vehicle has a rally severe damage, and that the breaks not functioning wasn't one of them. They simply told me to take go find a mechaninc and fix it myself with no chance of my getting a different vehicle, and instead they tried persuade me with a pricier vehicle. Never again!

10.0 ExcellentJan 14 2018
Good experience in mexicoPros: Courteous staff. Good car. Very pleased with the turn-in inspection of the car condition. Car was spotless at pick-up. (Alas, I could not turn it in as clean - washed the car the evening before turn-in, and the dusty Mexican dust took away the shine. I wanted to make it look. Better)Cons: Did not like the explanation of the cost. At sign-in, they left me totally confused about the pricing, with the insurance. Then entered about US$400 on my credit card, as “deposit”?. When I turned the car in, they said, pay the new “bill” and your $400 is cancelled. At least that is what I think they said - I will see when I get my credit card bill later this month. If, indeed that $400 is cancelled - then National was truly excellent - the price was very reasonable (ie, very competitive). If not, kind of a rip off.
2.0 MediocreJan 2 2018
Bad ExperiencePros: NothingCons: On kayak the vehicle specified a vw golf or similar. A car which was able to fit two suitcases. National offered a Nissan March instead, a car which I was only able to fit one suitcase in it's tiny trunk. I had to cancel cause the car did not provide what kayak offered. Very disappointed
6.0 GoodAug 29 2017
Pros: The employees are very nice, and helpful I have a broken SUV in the road. They very nice bring me another SUV. Take time but arrivedCons: The first SUV interior seat looks duty to many spots on the seat.. not clean very well. Plus broken on the road in Mexico? And the second SUV looks ok, but star driving and feel vibrations so alignment and later the light engine come on
6.8 GoodAug 15 2017
Pros: Overall nice, clean van; excluding one malfunctioning IP light switch which made driving in the night or in the rain (lights on) difficult. Service was personable and friendly.Cons: My Am Ex covers car rental insurance. I checked. The person attending insisted I pay for 3rd person insurance. I declined. She would only rent me the car if she secured $18,000 on the Am EX. $18k is beyond my limit. She got an extra $130 out of me.
2.0 MediocreAug 10 2017
RidiculousPros: They wanted a $1500 USD Deposit to take the car. We walked out. False advertisement.Cons: They tried to take our vacation money... nothing compared to renting a car in the states. Never again.
4.0 OkayAug 8 2017

8.0 ExcellentJun 29 2017
Good experience but make sure you read the fine printPros: Customer service, drop off/pick up experience, clean placeCons: Insurance coverage for cars is different than the US so read the details before you commit. Insurance coverage is mandatory and comes with a large US dollar deposit. The lower the coverage you select the higher the deposit will be.
2.0 MediocreApr 18 2017
Horrible - Europcar MéxicoPros: Horrible experience they wouldn't take the insurance from rentacars.com so I had to purchase their insurance originally for $380 then miraculously after 1.5hra fighting them it went to $200 extra only. Also when dropping off the car they tried to charge me because there was no car manual which was never in the car to begin with and for a scratch on the rim, when I went to look at what they wanted to charge me for they were looking at a totally different car. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE, I will never use rentalcars.com nor Europcar again.

Pros: You have to call to comunicate to them of your arrival, so you have to keep trying until you get them.

I spent a lot of time worrying this thing would break on us.
3.2 MediocreMar 10 2019

2.0 MediocreDec 7 2018
DECEIVING!!!Pros: Almost nothing.Cons: Pretty much everything. I rented a Jeep and they didn’t even own any. Gave me a Renault suv that was low in power and all scratched up. Rental pick up isn’t even near the airport, had to use a taxi to get to location. Then the price I already paid for the rental didn’t include the insurance. Paid over $350 more when I got there otherwise I couldn’t even touch the car. Overall I wouldn’t give any stars tbh. It was a hassle and very deceiving. Don’t use kayak for car rentals period. Will never make the same mistake!!!

False Advertisement, I will never recommend ACE car rentalPros: Nothing;Cons: horrible customer service it took over 2 hrs to get a vehicle, the vehicle I paid ACE was never carried by MEX rent a car (false advertisement), when I asked for a full refund the representative claimed she could not issue a refund, a supervisor from Mex rent a car told me to temporarily take a Toyota Camry (after making me miss an important meeting) and that they would deliver an SUV to me, as soon as one became available (empty promise).
2.0 MediocreAug 19 2017
Worst company in townPros: Nothing at allCons: I made my reservation from this site for a full size sedan preferably a Optima since that is what the listing said, OPTIMA. A few days after reservation I purchased the insurance through the website since it was a pretty decent deal. Well at my arival apparently a Kia Optima means a small VW Jetta with bunch of scratches and the airbag light on. I showed her the listing and it said Kia Optima or similar full size, welll to them, a Kia Optima is not a full size but a Luxury category which costs waaaay more. The teller did not want to take the insurance I purchased prior but gave me two choices, I either purchase their insurance since for them the insurance I purchased was not a valid insurance or leave a $5,000 dollar deposit in guarantee if something happens to the car they will fix from those $5,000 dlls. Really? My first and my last rental from this company, hands down. P.s. The insurance they charged me was almost $300 dlls. Awesome!!!

Pros: Horrible experience my rental was given to someone elseCons: If someone rents a car it should not be given to anyone else regardless if there’s a lot of people asking for cars, you took my money you should save me the car I rented.

Pros: NothingCons: They did not honor the voucher. Wanted us to pay an exorbitant amount, and claimed it was not for a rental but for excess mileage. A total fraud. And very frustrating to arrive and be defrauded by this scam. Now another battle to get my money back.
4.0 OkayMar 29 2021
Pros: Not much really.Cons: Better customer service from staff. Car smelled like urine whenever you turned in the ac. Seats and carpet were stained. Car was delivered with an empty gas tank.
2.0 MediocreMar 22 2021
Pros: Nothing they did have my van at the time of my pick up. And wouldn’t give another one so I had to get service else where. I would never recommend this place to anyone imagine getting there with a family of 6 kids are tired.Cons: If they would of giving me the car I made a reservation for.
4.8 OkayDec 30 2019
Pros: How quick it was to arrive and pick up the car.Cons: The insurance cost was too expensive and the cost should be transparent. The car had issues, I think it was involved in an accident.

Pros: NothingCons: They didn’t have any car available at the time I reached the car rental office. They even told me that my only solution was to go to other car rental companies, however same day reservations are usually more expensive. I found another place nearby from the company Mex Rent a Car, however I had to Pay more than double the price of what I reserved on Payless. I will never choose Payless again.
4.0 OkayNov 19 2019
Pros: When I arrived to pick up vehicle the Payless Rental Agency had no office inside the airport or shuttle that takes you to pick up the office. You have to walk three blocks towards there office!!!! With a family of three small children and four suitcases.....Once I arrived to the office there was a line of about 15 people in front of me, which was not a problem because it was a Friday and I could understand the rush. Once it was my turn after one hour and half of waiting they informed me that the vehicle I had requested was not available even though I had reserved it with more than a week of anticipation. That they could offer me a regular car but that it would cost me about double what the original reservation would be. They informed me that because I did not do the reservation directly with them that I had to call you're office to change anything ……..I tried many times calling you're office but with no luck...….This has been the worst experience me and my family have had …..We have never been treated like this …...We will never you you're service and will definitely recommend to any one we know or meet never to use this service ever.Cons: Everything..........When I arrived to pick up vehicle the Payless Rental Agency had no office inside the airport or shuttle that takes you to pick up the office.

Pros: Woman at counter was courteousCons: Price, insurance was $110 per day. I had the car 30 hours and had to pay 2 days of rental and 2 days of outrageous insurance. I used to pay $67 dollars for insurance in the past. As I have been a long time customer. The car had a terrible smell of burnt motor oil coming from the engine. Called the number provided by them to let them know if the issue and never got an answer. Never going back.
2.0 MediocreApr 28 2021
Cons: I was not given an option to decline insurance coverage not needed or wanted. My reservation would not have been honored and they would have declined car rental. I had 8 pieces of luggage and 94 and 92 year olds with me. I had no choice but to accept very expensive insurance, not needed as my credit card covers it. Also, no car available on location for me and I had to wait a full hour for the car. I was lied to, being told it was being cleaned. I walked over to the cleaning bay to check and no caravan was there. I asked again and was told it was a few more minutes while they finished cleaning it. I confronted them and explained there was no car there and to give me an honest answer. They finally said it was coming from a different location. They still had to clean it when it arrived. Poor customer service and dishonest.

6.0 GoodOct 1 2019
Pros: I did NOT like that I was not able to use the insurance I purchased through Kayak with this rental company. I WASTED MY MONEYCons: A whole lot. How about you don’t offer insurance when the rental company is not going to accept it, requiring you to purchase additional insurance.
2.8 MediocreJan 29 2019
Pros: The car was niceCons: They did not honor the price that I booked with you guys, although I showed my confirmation for the booking they said I booked for a smaller size car (which was not true) we had car problems and got stranded with a broke down van, plus they stole some of our gas. Worst experience with a car rental
2.0 MediocreJul 16 2018
Rip offPros: Nothing !Cons: I rented the car I was given a price online. I was to pay at pick up. Once I got to Mexico to pick up the car, Europcar try to charge my credit card $9,000 US Dollars for insurance protection. I declined it online because my credit card covers any theft or accidents. The gentleman at the rental place said that he needed me to send him my visas terms and conditions which I did. He then said he still needed to place a hold. Because of the large amount the bank placed a fraud alert, and shortly after he attempted to run my card for the $9,000 US dollars I saw that they had a sign in Spanish that read that if you purchase insurance with them then there would be a $5,000 Mexican pesos hold on the card. In the end because of the fraud alert and such they ended up placing the insurance I left a $700 US dollar deposit and upon return I was charged almost $200 US dollars for the vehicle which I only rented for 2 1/2 days. They overcharged me, my initial quote was for $70 US dollars. I am extremely dissatisfied. The only good news is that I called my credit card company and explained the situation and they will submit a claim so that I only pay my quoted amount. Locals told me that yes I was ripped off and that next time I should pay ahead of time rather than waiting to pay at pick up.
2.4 MediocreJun 7 2018
I had the worst service and i got the worst car, it smelled awful on tCons: I had the worst service and i got the worst car, it smelled awful on the inside and it was so dirty and it wouldnt run more then 40 km. I was also given the car with an empty tank in a city that i dont know and i didnt have any nearby gas stations. With the conversión of dollars to pesos i could have gone to a junk car place instead and gotten a car of better conditions. Lastly, i do not understand how RentCars can have such a nasty company like Eurocars. I am extremly disappointed that i spent my money for such poor service and experience.
2.0 MediocreMay 20 2018
Did not honor reservation price. Tried to scam for a lot more!Pros: Nothing. I left without the car.Cons: Iended up leaving without the car. They did not honor my reservation and prepurchased insurance. They argied that Kayaks reservation was just a booking fee that was not shared with the rental agency and that they did not accept the prepurchased insurance. They wanted to charge 10 times more likely what I was quoted and I prepaid. This company is a horrible scam!

2.0 MediocreFeb 19 2018
Pros: NothingCons: Everything. Tried to charge me for a car I had already prepaid. Then the rate they quoted me was double what I had booked. They didn't care and didn't try to fix or check the mistake. They completely ignored me and went back to playing on their phone. Walked out and rented from another agency (much more credible, larger chain) for a much better price and WAY better service.

Cons: The site we chose to pick up our car had a sign taped to its door instructing us to call a number. We waited for 20 minutes for someone to appear, who brought us to a different location 15 minutes away in the rental car we would be renting. They shouldn’t have made us go out of our way by advertising a false pick up location, it added unnecessary time and confusion to the whole experience. It was very pricy and there was a 4.5% hidden fee for using a credit card when we returned the car.
2.0 MediocreJan 17 2017
Horrible experiencePros: NOTHINGCons: The car that we reserved and had confirmation for was not available upon arriving to pick up. This caused a lot of chaos and nerves as we were left without transportation. How can this happen when you have a confirmed reservation and are counting on having a vehicle? I've never experienced something this horrible and their customer service associates were horrible and didn't care we were left without transportation.
2.0 MediocreJan 10 2017
Pros: Despite making a reservation, they had no cars available. They did not apologize at all for it, did nothing to help us make other accommodations, and so we were stuck without a car.

The guy at the reception wasnt even nice; he was giving all types of excuses.

We didn't even get the car.Pros: NothingCons: We got to the Hertz and they didn't have a car for us. Their excuse was "sometimes people don't return the cars on time, sorry!" And we had to scramble last minute to get a rental elsewhere so we could still go on our trip.

5.2 OkayJan 2 2017
Never againPros: Made a reservation in advance but they didn't have it when I got there. Took an hour and a half to get a car which is longer than the plane ride to get to Guadalajara. The physical appearance of their facility is very poor, it's dirty, unkept. I was told to wait in a certain area for a van and waited there for 30 minutes. Finally got their facility and they sent me back to the terminal saying that I had to go upstairs. They said they didn't have a car for me. I think they overcharged me but it was Christmas, so what could I do!

Top tips for renting a car in Guadalajara

  • Planning on picking up a rental car for your trip to Guadalajara? If your flight lands at Guadalajara International Airport then you will find the airport’s various car rental desks in the main hall of Terminal 1.
  • One of the more unique features of parking in Guadalajara is that you are often expected to tip for parking. Specifically, you will commonly see people guiding drivers to parking spaces nearby and, although they are not a professional service, they still expect a tip for their work.
  • Traffic circles, or glorietas, as they are known as in Mexico, are a key feature of driving in Guadalajara. They are very common and can be quite intimidating for new drivers because traffic may be moving quickly and apparently dangerously through them. However, they are simple enough affairs as long as you drive defensively and know ahead of time where you are going.
  • Rush hour in Guadalajara, like in many major cities in the world, is no joke. Drivers not wanting to get stuck in traffic are advised to avoid the daily rush hour if possible. In general, the morning rush hour goes from 6:30 a.m. and lasts until 9:30 a.m. or even 10:00 a.m. As for the afternoon and evening peak, it starts at around 5:30 p.m. and finishes up at around 8:00 p.m. One of the main avenues to avoid during rush hour in Guadalajara is the Anillo Periferico, as it is among the worst roads hit by congestion.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Guadalajara for $5 or less

  • Fortunately for travelers, all sizes of vehicles are found on the road in Guadalajara. So whether you prefer an SUV or a two-door coupe, you will be comfortable driving here no matter what. However, if you plan on exploring the older corners of the city, it may be worth renting a smaller vehicle as the lanes and alleys can become a bit narrow at times.

  • Speed limits in Guadalajara, and in Mexico as a whole, usually are 60 km/h (37 mph) on roads with no posted speed limited, 60 to 80 km/h (37 to 50 mph) on larger arterial roads such as beltways and freeways, and 100 to 110 km/h (62 to 68 mph) on major highways,

  • Gas prices in Guadalajara are around 20.80 MXN ($1.02) per liter of gas, which is 78.73 MXN ($3.84) per gallon of gas. While this is a fair bit more expensive than the prices seen in the U.S., compared to prices in Europe this is still quite affordable.

  • Private parking garages and lots are certainly the best options for travelers visiting Guadalajara. Though theft and crime are not an issue in most of the city, it still pays to stick to secure parking lots just in case. Additionally, such lots and garages are widely available in the popular districts of the city.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why KAYAK has produced the ultimate guide to renting a car to help you cut though the jargon and make the right choice for your rental car.
