With all there is to do and see in and around the Playa Del Carmen area, you'll want to explore more than just the area surrounding your hotel during your trip. Whether you have to try the cafe that has gotten rave reviews across town or see some of the local favorites, you'll want your own car to explore as much as possible during your visit. Whatever you end up doing in Playa Del Carmen, if you want to get the most from your trip to the city, having access to your own vehicle is a must.
CarRentals.com works with several of the best companies in the industry. Avis was the first rent-a-car company to be located in an airport and have over 70 years of providing rentals to visitors from all over. With over 5,000 locations all over the world and an assorted fleet of automobiles, Avis is sure to offer you a great experience from when you pick up your car to when you drop it off.
We strive to get you the best price, whether you book. But getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Be sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Playa Del Carmen is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Avis's policy to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Playa Del Carmen. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Playa Del Carmen vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Avis in Mexico. You can purchase additional insurance through Avis, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Playa Del Carmen. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Avis requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Playa Del Carmen. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Avis. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Playa Del Carmen certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Playa Del Carmen, having the keys to your own auto lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to discover more of Mexico, you can go wherever you like, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or figuring out a bus schedule.
Before your next vacation, book your Avis Playa Del Carmen car rental and take off to all the must-see sights at your own pace. Reserve with CarRentals.com and speed along the highway in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.
