10.0 ExcellentFeb 17 2021
Pros: Friendly and helpful, from the airport shuttle driver to the desk and fleet teams.
4.0 OkayFeb 1 2021
Cons: Bait and switch. Quoted $185 then got there and all of a suden it’s $405. You guys suck
4.0 OkayJan 25 2021
Cons: Mandatory insurance and other fees took my quoted price from $155.95 to $371.74. That's more than double the price I was told in Kayak. I don't think I'll be back.
2.0 MediocreDec 23 2020
Cons: Price increased over double the amount quoted once there to pick up the car. Of course, they also claimed they didn’t have the car as described available as well. We left and went to Avis! Love Avis in Cabo.

Pros: The car was in excellent condition ride perfect no problem and was super clean
4.0 OkayJul 30 2020
Cons: It said it was included with the insurance and once we got over there they charged us 18 dollars a day for a mandatory insurance
2.0 MediocreApr 15 2020
Cons: I specifically reserved a car return location in Downtown La Paz. And I confirmed with the person behind the counter that I can return the car in downtown. La Paz Alamo downtown location doesn’t exist anymore. I was not told that in Los Cabos so they don’t loose the rental deal. I was asked to go to the airport and return the car there. Airport location was “open” but nobody was there. A person from Avis called the employee from Alamo, and I was told the employee will be there in 15 min. An hour later, still nobody from Alamo in sight, I gave the keys of the car to Avis employee and left. I rent cars all the time, will never rent with Alamo again!
6.4 GoodMar 1 2020
Cons: While staff was friendly, you were about held hostage with adding on rental coverage "required" for mexico. Even though our Costco coverage was valid. twice the amount to rent the car. never again

2.4 MediocreJul 26 2019
Pros: The shuttle to and from airportCons: Prices!!! I had a quote for $15 total rental and $11 for insurance. When I got there insurance was $30 a day. Very unsatisfied
7.6 GoodFeb 24 2019
Pros: Staff was very friendly, car was new and clean.Cons: Transparency into the insurance coverage. I reserved online thinking my car would've been $45 for the whole rental only to find out it was double the price with bare bones coverage. Better coverage would've cost $200, but my credit card covered it, thankfully. Would rather know real price up front.
10.0 ExcellentNov 2 2018
Enterprise Rental in CaboPros: Clean, relatively new car. Good price with advertised special though insurance bumped it up quite a bit.Cons: The rental company facilities are a bit down the road so you have to get their shuttle. This would be no problem excepting for the "sharks" waiting in the lobby who insist that you will need one of their guys to take you to the office. Ignore them, convincing as they are, and get the official shuttle.
4.0 OkayJun 3 2018
Very slow service at checkin. Try to upsell everything.Cons: Very slow checkin. Try to sell everything and didn’t have car we reserved. Would not recommend.
8.0 ExcellentApr 25 2018
Pros: Shuttle takes you right there.Cons: Ppaperwork takes a bit too long. By the time you buy insurance, price is quite different.
8.8 ExcellentApr 10 2018

10.0 ExcellentMar 4 2018
Solid PerformancePros: Car was ready when we arrived and was immaculate. Return was quick and easy. Would definitely use them again at SJD.Cons: Nothing.
4.8 OkayNov 25 2017
Pros: very uncomfortable and small car - did not drive well
8.0 ExcellentOct 17 2017
Pros: Friendly staffCons: Their computer kept going down during checkin.....took a long time to check in, then they wouldn't go get our car until we listened to the lady trying to get us to go to a timeshare presentation. We had traveled all night and were not in the mood!!
10.0 ExcellentSep 24 2017
Pros: Easy rental process. Courteous service. Told you all the charges upfront. No surprises

2.0 MediocreApr 13 2021
Pros: They never brought the car. We tried to call the local office for several hours, and they didn't answer the phone. Unacceptable.Cons: Everything. The rental never even happened.
6.0 GoodJan 7 2021
Pros: car was comfortableCons: The price of insurance and also upon driving the car, we found it had acceleration problems.
8.0 ExcellentFeb 1 2020
Pros: Car was clean and everything worked properly.Cons: We were offered an upgrade at no cost then when we brought the car back, that information was not entered into the computer so the counter person tied to charge us more until the manager came and remembered that he gave us a free upgrade.
4.8 OkayNov 26 2019
Cons: Insurance is a scam. I have coverage through my credit card however they claimed I needed to present WRITTEN evidence of coverage in Mexico or would have to pay for their insurance. This was never disclosed in advance via reservation or when I called Budget to confirm reservation and any special insurance requirements.
2.0 MediocreNov 9 2019
Cons: Having the vehicle I reserved. I reserved a SUV and when I arrived at 3:30 they only had 2 vehicles available (compacts) , I refused to accept either one and had to wait and hour for the next suitable vehicle a full size sedan to be returned, fueled and cleaned. Budget and I was lucky that I didn’t slice open the oil pan or dropped the transmission on the rutted and rocky dirt roads to my destination of Cerritos Beach north of Cabo. That office needs more inventory of vehicles with basic safety features like back up camera, blind spot warning or any sensors period not available on even their premium vehicles. Then replace some of the indifferent and drag-*ss employees who contributed to the hour long wait!
5.2 OkayApr 22 2019
Pros: The car was new and comfortable and clean.Cons: Beware of Budget trying to steal your money! They bait & switched us and in the mountains of paperwork we signed had us sign for an amount we didn’t agree upon and our rental went from $130 to $788! We felt scammed.
5.6 OkayApr 4 2019
Pros: The car was nice. It made the trip seamless.Cons: Took over an hour to receive vehicle. I was under the impression that all I was paying at 141 for my 9 days. When I arrived they said I needed an insurance which added like 400 dollars. Totally unexpected. When I asked them they said I needed liability insurance.
2.8 MediocreFeb 12 2019
Cons: They forced me to pay literally ten times the original rental cost for insurance that you supposedly have to have in Mexico. Do not rent from budget.
2.0 MediocreJan 4 2019
Cons: They were overbooked. I didn't receive the car that I had reserved, nor any car.
4.8 OkayNov 20 2018
Don't trust their phone reservations with insurancePros: Car was ok, had 50k km on it but drove decent. Pickup and dropoff was fairly quick. Close to airport.Cons: I was supposed to have insurance at about $120 total for two days rental and they told me at the desk they didn't show the insurance reservation. Total ended up being over $200. Also conned me into a tank of gas when I burned < 1/4 tank driving all the way over to Todos Santos and back. Asked what the tank size was and they said that I would burn a tank of gas going and coming. Know now not to believe what they say.

10.0 ExcellentJan 19 2021
Pros: Price was good, staff was helpful. Car was clean. Mexico 3rd Party insurance was included. Able to decline CDW with credit card coverage as long as a hold was placed on credit card.Cons: Make sure you fill out the paper to mark all dings, dents and scrapes on the car before taking the car.
8.0 ExcellentNov 21 2019
Pros: The staff was helpful and efficient.Cons: Not such a big price jump to a bigger more comfortable vehicle.
2.0 MediocreMay 10 2019
Pros: Nothing to likeCons: They made me wait 45minutes to tell me that they didn't have the card I booked in advance
8.0 ExcellentFeb 25 2019
Cons: Upon return, they refused to release the hold on the credit card, saying that one of the headrests was missing. Also, there was a missing plastic cover in the passengers foot well that they want to charge me for. At check-in, they seemed very relaxed about the condition of the vehicle. Document!
4.4 OkayOct 29 2018
Not the greatest experience.Pros: The car itself was clean and functioned as expected.Cons: I show up to Pueblo Bonito Rose on the date I scheduled my rental pick-up (the date and location had already been pre-selected) and the hotel concierge tells me that Avis is closed on Sundays. Why did the website allow me to schedule the pickup on this date? Pueblo Bonito was nice enough to call Avis' other location nearby and I spoke with Avis on the phone, they sent a guy with my rental. He said he'd be there in 10 minutes, that was a lie, I waited at least half an hour. They provide a wifi box which is kinda neat, but the guy gave it to me without a charging cable and I wasn't able to charge it, so this was only useful on the first drive, after the first day of using it, it died and was useless. He told me upfront that there was no charging cable, so I was aware of this and said ok. When I returned the car at SJD Airport, Avis asks me where the cable is. I said you guys gave me the wifi box without one. They said that because there weren't any notations of the missing cable that they would have to charge me, at this point I was pretty upset. I'm just trying to drop of my car so we can catch our flight back home and now this nonsense. Long story short I spoke with the manager and flat out told them, "no, I'm not paying for a cable that we were never provided with which made this wifi box useful for only one trip" I didn't end up having to pay for the cable but then I got screwed on having to pay for a full tank of gas when I only used 1/4 of the tank, so I might as well have paid for the stupid cable. Avis never once told me anything about extra charges for gas, I guess this can be assumed but being that this was in Mexico and the first time I rent a car there, I didn't assume the rules were the same. I would've put a few bucks worth of gas to replenish the tank had i known I was going to have to pay the full price of a tank. Terrible experience!
8.0 ExcellentOct 19 2018
Perfectly good rental, but agents are too aggressive selling insuranceCons: They really try hard to push you on buying the insurance. In fact, they mislead you to the point of pushing outright fabrication (lying) that you are legally obligated to purchase insurance from them (which is not true.) This caused picking up the car to take far longer than it should, as when I got the contract, they had added insurance that I had not asked for, and I had to have them correct it, and go through the whole process again.

A little bit of the Mexican ShufflePros: Easy pick up close-by nice new carsCons: I call it the Mexico Shuffle because it always seems It's a bait and switch I am now a custom too this business practice Obviously when I rented the car through kayak it was $5 per day not even a Mexico can you get a car for $5 a day I knew that they were going to sell me a damage waiver the know where on the website could I find that information I actually called the location and got the exact price per day which was $35 plus the $5 as advertised so is about $40 per day for a midsize SUV which are required for off road dirt road travel Just to be fair all the car companies seem to do that even if I tell him I did not want to damage waiver that American Express credit card covers me and my automobile insurance covers rental cars and in fact my homeowner's policy has a line item in it for Rental Car Coverage which is rather minimal but it is there
4.0 OkayAug 16 2017
Bait and switchPros: The car, while it was a new car, still was not the car that we reserved. We reserved a Nissan Maxima for 4 adults and got a KIA SorentoCons: This was my first use of the Kayak site and we reserved a car for a week out of Cabo. The car was not what I ordered (a smaller KIA instead of a Nissan). The real problem was that as soon as I reserved it, I received an email from an insurance company, Allianz, that offered to sell me insurance. I purchased the insurance, but ACE rental would not recognize that insurance. I had to purchase another insurance policy through them at 3 times the price or not get the car.
2.0 MediocreJul 24 2017
Misrepresentation of Rental Costs; Vehicle Not as RepresentedPros: Not much. Starting with the (initial) airport shuttle ("Ace badged"), which delivered me to a 35 minute wait, at the (wrong) office. Once we took (other) shuttle, I was offered a Kia "Forte"(instead of the VW Jetta-Full Size or "similar"). My reservation stated Then, instead of the $30.69USD, that my reservation stated, I was given a choice of $180.69USD (with a $2500.00USD "Hold", and final charge on my credit card), or $215.51USD, for an $800.00 "Hold", and final charge on my credit card.Cons: I did not appreciate the disorganization, the need to go to (2) different office locations, the waiting in line (at each of those offices), for a total of 50 minutes, the type of car that I was rented, (i.e.smaller than the car class that I reserved), or the ("Surprise!!!") additional charges that were somehow acceptable, and explained by, the "Terms and Conditions". While "Additional Charges may apply for required insurance, when the "required insurance" is 6 times the cost of the rental, something is wrong.
10.0 ExcellentJun 28 2017
as it should bePros: everything was as advertised with no glitchesCons: It is unfortunate that all the insurances need to be so expensive
10.0 ExcellentMay 30 2017
Pros: Ramona Alvarez in cabo san lucas was a great help and everything went well.
10.0 ExcellentMay 13 2017
Great bargainPros: Little yellow convertible Fiat for 6 days-231 bucks. Can't beat that!
8.0 ExcellentApr 25 2017
Pros: Mini van was clean, and everything worked well on it.Cons: The price given on Kayak for renting a mini van from Ace for a week in Cabo San Lucas was about $140. All other mini van rentals listed on Kayak were $400-$450 a week. When we got to Ace to pick up the mini van, they said that the $140 price doesn't include taxes, fees, etc, and those brought the price up to $424 for the week. So they ended up being the same price as the other car rental companies. It's a tricky way to get people to choose them.
5.6 OkayMar 18 2017
Pros: Ease of transactionsCons: They charge you 30$ a day for insurance unless you put 4000$ down
5.6 OkayMar 5 2017
Too much pressure for InsuranceCons: I get the deal - give someone a very low price to rent a car - but then heavily pressure someone to buy what is very expensive insurance. I had my own - and even then was made to feel extremely uncomfortable.
2.0 MediocreFeb 28 2017
you better buy the insurancePros: The office was clean and the car was cheap.Cons: The ACE representatives take a long time to check you in and out and it is very unclear what insurance options you need. I was under the impression that my credit card provided me insurance so declined all insurance despite the ACE representatives advising to get the full insurance coverage. Just to put it into perspective the rental was $50 without insurance and $200 with full insurance - so a 4x difference. On the highway back to return the rental car I got a flat tire which I fixed myself. When I returned the care the ACE representatives charged me $330 additional for the flat tire and dirt marks on the car. I had no choice to accept because they had a $2,500 deposit and I was late to catch my flight. I would not rent from ACE again.

4.0 OkayApr 28 2019
Pros: Staff was nice, however they had no record of our booking, and we had to rent for a higher cost than what our originally booked amount was.Cons: Careful even if you have a confirmation #, we had ours and they still didn't have any record of our rental, even after I showed the agent my confirmation # and screen shot of the booking.

Pros: Car was excellent as was service.Cons: I chose Payless because of price. Supposedly $175 for a weekly rental. That they agreed was the confirmed price. When I declined the insurance as I always do, since I have insurance on my credit card, I was told they would only allow this if I could produce a letter proving I had insurance from the credit card company. Or I could bring it later to one of their offices. Since I didn't have access to a printer this was not possible. Payless then charged an additional $18/day or $125 for the week for "insurance". This essentially doubled the cost. I have rented from Fiesta in downtown San Jose before at a much cheaper price. We only chose Payless since we arrived with heavy suitcases and wanted a rental car from the Los Cable airport. We won't be renting from Payless again.

3 dollars per day is a hoaxCons: I rented a Jetta for 3 usd per day, but it turned ou that third party insurance ( basic by the way) is 33 usd per day. I think this is how they get you yo rent with them and then hike up the price. Also I came with the tank half full and they were charging me 70 usd to fill it up. In MEXICO that translates to 3.5 times the cost of gas. I took it myself given the price.

Pros: They didn't push the insurance too much. The place was clean. People were very respectful and prompt.Cons: The sites said that the rental was in the airport but we had to take a ride. Not a big deal but it s best to be transparent.
3.6 MediocreNov 21 2018
Pros: Location was near the airport.Cons: Car was advertised as $94 for a week. I was forced (not asked) to pay for extra "mandatory" insurance of $16/day. This increased the total to $204. I was told by the representative at National Car Rental at the Cabo San Lucas airport that I could not rent the car unless I paid the extra insurance fee and that it was Mandatory. None of that information was on the site where I made a reservation. I believe the representative gave me false information and I'm going to report it to the Washington Post travel section. I took pictures of the agreement I had to sign.
4.4 OkayApr 28 2017
The more you know...Pros: The price I saw on my online booking! $10/day for a 2016 Chevy Malibu! Returning the car was quick and easy!Cons: The ACTUAL price I had to pay when I arrived because Mexican law requires the purchase of some Mandatory 3rd-Party Liability insurance which added 200% to the price of my daily rental. An additional $20/day. Customers should really be informed about this in advancen, as this can easily be taken into consideration during the online booking process. Also, my Emerald Club number was not connected to my reservation and I really had to negotiate HARD with the agent to get them to add it to my account. Was there an option to do this during the reservation? I don't recall. As a frequent National/Emerald user this was disappointing. Finally, clearing Mexican customs & immigration was less hassle, paperwork and time consuming than renting a car which I would have found hilarious if it wasn't so annoying. Would give 0 stars if I could! Also, the shuttle bus from the terminal has back doors for a reason. The staff should f***ing use them instead of piling everyone in the side, then cramming the luggage in so all the passengers are stick inside. Let the people go in and out the back DUHHHH!!! Okay... rant finished, but seriously those are legitimate points!

After 2 hours of trying to convince me to just take that one because they didn’t have an option I canceled. They tried to tell me I couldn’t because I already signed the contract etc. after more arguing that I haven’t even driven it , I canceled, called my credit card company and walked in lobby of hotel/ office and lady who happened to own a small car rental was there to use the gym at hotel. She hooked me up in 10 min and I was gone! All In car rental is the way to go in Cabo Mexico!

The attendant helping us, Cecilia, was wonderful, however and the car was fine.

5.2 OkayDec 5 2019
Pros: The car did not break down.Cons: Car was extremely dirty. Virtually no attempt at cleaning it. Smell of urine throughout car was unbearable.

Prepare to pay for mandatory insurance when renting a car in Mexico.Pros: Drop off was very simple and clear cut. Price was as expected.Cons: Pickup was slow, but I think it is because people do not understand mexican insurance. Maybe you could do a better job of making that information available when people book cars. My car was listed at $12 for the week and ended up $189 for the week with full insurance. I knew it would not be $12, that's insane to think that will be the cost. I was actually pleased with the final cost , less than I expected. People renting for the fist time i Mexico are not prepared.

Be prepared to haggle over the cost of the insuranPros: The cost of the rental car was something like $5 a day, but the insurance is where they get you.Cons: Basically traded away 3 hours of our vacation time to have breakfast and get full coverage insurance for the week. They quoted us over $500 for the insurance, if we wanted to pay it out of pocket.

Deceiving PriceCons: The price quoted online was deceiving. It said $2 a day, when in fact it was $2 for the car but mandatory $30 a day fees... Never a nice surprise. What I expected to cost $4 ended up costing $72...
6.4 GoodMar 19 2017
Pros: The car worked fine, and pick up and drop off (at the airport in Cabo) was easy.Cons: The cost--$390 for one week--is excessive. I have never paid that much for a rental car before, either in Europe or America. I understand that Mexico has strict rules concerning insurance coverage, and that's fine. I was perfectly willing to pay extra for the required insurance. But this seemed to be well over what is reasonable.
2.0 MediocreFeb 19 2017
Tried to steal from me.Cons: We ended up not needing such a big car, so we asked for a smaller rental, going from a minivan to a standard. The representative refused to give us a price for the smaller car. He wouldn't call anyone, and he wouldn't check his books. The counter person did EVERYTHING to get us in the van, so he could take us to the off site rental agency, and then we would be trapped at his rental agency. He was a scammer, and an embarrassment to Dollar Rental Car. We went to the counter two stands over, and got an extremely fair price, and rented it on the spot. Again, Dollar cannot control their desk in Mexico. I am extremely unhappy with Dollar, and will bring this up to my corporate officer in charge of rentals.
4.0 OkayFeb 5 2017
Pros: clean carCons: a car rental with Alamo at Cabo San Lucas Airport for 1/28/17. We landed at the airport yesterday, In Los Cabos Mexico, and greeted appropriately at the airport by the Alamo people, and brought via shuttle a short distance to a center about 4 blocks away. We went in there were 2 total families in the van including us. We went into the Alamo rental area and were greeted nicely. We were talking to the rental person and he informed us of a mandatory liability insurance for damage to other cars, that is not included in the already purchased alliance insurance. He showed me in the hotwire small print that some international car rentals have mandatory insurance requirements that result in additional charges at the time of pick up. I also purchased the alliance insurance offered at the time of rental that has sufficed in the past when I have rented in Mexico. My issue is that one of the people at the office then came in when we were discussing this charge of $220 for the insurance and asked if we were owners of The timeshare we are going to then the fee would be waived if we went to their timeshare at a different hotel. I am not sure how this works in general for an Alamo car rental agency but we felt the charge was now arbitrary and we ended up paying the additional $220 above our rental and the Alliance insurance. This is inappropriate and I do not think this is how a Alamo transaction and use of services is set up. If this is typical I need to know so I am not subjected to this in the future and I will not use the services of Alamo.

Pros: drop off was easy and when shuttle was going late, the guy offered to drive me to terminal, but then the shuttle showed up.Cons: 1. They forced me to buy the more expensive insurance. They wouldn't rent the car unless I did. Another lady refused and they let her go, so my rental ended up costing 3x. 2. It took forever to get the car because they kept forcing the up-sell, while the family was waiting. It felt like a mafia run rental agency. 3. The car didn't have a front license plate and instead had this big piece of paper pasted to front windshield that obstructed passenger view.

3.6 MediocreNov 12 2019
Cons: Terrible service! They said it was mandatory to buy their insurance and that my card wasn’t enough. I asked Juan (supervisor) to show me where in their policy it stated this and he went to reach for it but then he said that the paperwork was moved by someone and he couldn’t show me. The folder with all their company policies was right in front of us but he refused to open it and show me. A total scam by these workers there!! I rented with Ace and they didn’t force anything on me 3 days before. Terrible customer service! Never rent here again!
2.0 MediocreOct 31 2019
Cons: I never got the car, they tried to get me for more money when I arrived. I have rented several times and used third party insurance to cover the car. They insisted that the purchased insurance would not cover anything, they really tried to scam me. They started quoting insurance in the excess of $1300 until I was fed up with their approach and they tried to offer me coverage for$100 walking out the door. Internationally I will rent from My resorts from this point forward!!!! Word to the wise! Had I not rented before I probably would have believed them like I seen many others do!

Pros: They didn't communicate price very well. We were originally told $25-30 per day when we called them. When we got there it was almost twice that, plus they wanted a $500 deposit they didn't tell us about. They ended up giving us the car for close to what they originally said plus a $300 depositCons: Communicate pricing more clearly from the start next time and mention the deposit. I also blame kayak for not posting pricing through the app. It originally said our trip would cost $4, which obviously isn't accurate.

Pros: Price was excellentCons: When picking up the rental salesman was very pushy on wanting us to purchase additional insurance. Since I am already covered by other means, I usually declined additional insurance but it was very tough to do so this time.

Thrifty used the opportunity of a flat tire (on their car) to gouge meCons: I rented a car from Thrifty recently in San Jose del Cabo. When I received the car, I was told that it was a brand new car and they quickly hustled me through the inspection process. While I was there, they tried extraordinarily hard to sell me on full coverage insurance. While I was driving the car on the highway (going more than 100 kph), the car experienced a flat tire (right passenger side front tire). It was extremely dangerous and I was able to cross the median and move to the frontage road to change the tire. When I returned the car, I was told that there were minor “scrapes” on the underside of the car and that the tire was damaged (although, there was no apparent visual evidence of damage to the tire). I was charged $US 85 for the scrapes and WAS ASKED TO PAY FOR THE FLAT TIRE ($US 50) !!! To say that I am surprised that I was asked to pay for a wear and tear item and then asked to pay for “scrapes” that may or may not have been there when I rented the vehicle (way up UNDER the front of the bumper) or could have happened when the tire went flat and I had to exit the highway in an umarked spot may be an understatement. I believe that Thrifty is not actually in the rental car business – but rather the insurance scam business. It is clear that the business model is to get people in with low rates, try and upgrade their insurance, and then charge them for faulty equipment all the while claiming ignorance.

Total trick to upsell you insurance.Pros: Not muchCons: The good deal turned into an opportunity to upsell over priced insurance and screw you.
2.0 MediocreApr 19 2017
They said we damaged the carCons: We didn't damage the car, we missed a scratch on the orignals damage inspection. Then they charged us for it.
6.0 GoodApr 2 2017
Cons: Car was tiny. It was clean and economical on gas but very small. The Agency tried to charge $2500 on my credit card and when I refused they lowered it to $500 but raised the rate by $30. I expected to pay $20/day insurance over the $3/date rental but they charged over $30/day. I know it is the Mexican rip-off.
2.0 MediocreMar 29 2017
ScamPros: Nothing.Cons: We showed up with a reservation costing us $141. They told us we'd have to purchase insurance there(we expected this due to Mexico law) with full insurance it was going to be $650. Too much. We asked about just liability, and they told us we could but it would be a $2000 hold on our card. After arguing with them, one guy leaned over and told us he'd be willing to work it out to be $371 if we gave him $60 in cash, which was obviously for him. Totally a scam, so we took our business somewhere else. We ended up with Budget and they were totally legit!
4.8 OkayMar 17 2017
Over priced old carPros: The car was clean and the staff extremely friendly, however someone took our luggage either intentional or by accident at their store and they had no camerasCons: They lost our luggage. They gave us an old Nissan Tiida and charged us around $65/day

Pros: The staff was friendly and drop off was quick and easy.Cons: There needs to be more information for future customers on additional fees NOT mentioned in the advertising when booking a rental car in Mexico. Although my credit card covers collision, it did not cover liability in Mexico. It was not known to me and to other customers to my left and my right at the counter, while I was working on getting the contract worked out. The daily advertised prices are steep and will cut into peoples budget. I understand that I have to play the game, but it is very disappointing that I find this out at the counter and not before.
4.0 OkayApr 24 2021
Pros: The staff was super awesome and friendly, wait time was insanely ridiculous- we waited over three hours from the time we got dropped off by the shuttle until we we drove out. I’ve rented cars in other countries and this one by far one of the slowest processes ever. And remember the price kayak quotes is just for the car-not for everything else they throw in at the counter. My price on kayak was $188 and I ended up paying $572 all said and done. In the end it was kinda worth it all.
2.0 MediocreJan 9 2021
Pros: The overall experience was horrible. I booked the car for $284 when we arrived to pick up the car they tried to charge us $1,200. They said we had to have full coverage on the car and could not take it unless we paid full coverage. Everyone that was trying to pick up their cars was experiencing the same thing. They were trying to raise the price on everyone, then saying there was a $600 cancellation fee, and saying you could not opt out of insurance and that the lowest daily price was $88 per DAY! We finally talked them down to $545 for full coverage and the car. Once we returned the car we signed off on a contract for $545 when I checked my credit card they charged me almost $700. DO NOT RENT FROM THEM THEY ARE SCAMMERS!!!!
6.0 GoodJul 22 2019
Pros: Friendly staff. Ease of drop-off and pickup.Cons: I was given an estimated price of $105 USD on my reservation. When I arrived to rent the car I had the choice of an ADDITIONAL $170-$250 or having an $18,000 USD hold on my card with no insurance. This was misleading and frustrating. I want to reiterate how great the staff at Firefly were.
2.0 MediocreJan 6 2019
Avoid if at all possiblePros: The car did run for the entire trip.Cons: Minivan had 63k miles, horrible value for money, office was full of people on their mobile phones, earphones in, shady insurance upsell, will never use again. Car had mismatched tires, cv joint was going, ac fan screaming, missing trim...you get the idea...run away

Beware the hidden extrasCons: Lots of "required" extras not reflected in price on kayak Much more expensive than other vendors.
2.0 MediocreSep 4 2018
TERRIBLE - will never use againPros: Check-in person was friendlyCons: SO MANY HIDDEN FEES. Told me I would be charged $40 a day for insurance but with fees it was more like $80. Company refused to budge on the fees, which isn’t a surprise because I’m sure that’s how this horrible, cheap company makes its money.
2.0 MediocreApr 24 2017
AwfulCons: They Make everything to increase the price, the service was awful, fx rate 20% more than in the banks, and they push you to take the insurance even do your credits card has one, really a bad experience
3.6 MediocreJan 18 2017
Missleading promotionCons: No warning that a extremely expensive insurance purchases would be required or show proof of insurance. Required documents in promotion did not include these, nor specified the additional substantial cost.
