There is no better way to see everything Mexico City has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Budget rental car. Stop spending your vacation waiting on the bus, or wasting money here and there with ride-shares or taxis. When you have the keys to your own vehicle, you can go anywhere you want to go, when you want. Make your next getaway to Mexico more enjoyable with a Budget car rental.
With all there is to do and see in and around the Mexico City region, you'll want to explore more than just your hotel room while on your stay. Whether you have to have dinner at that new chophouse across town or see some of the best local favorites, you'll need your own vehicle to explore as much as you can while on your vacation. Wherever you drive to in Mexico City, if you want to get the most out of your visit, having your own car is a must.
CarRentals.com works with several of the top car rental companies in the world. Started during Los Angeles, California around 1958, Budget always strives to provide the best prices for customers. With a name like Budget, you know they'll try to get you the lowest rate.
We try to get you the best price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, getting your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Be sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Mexico City is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Budget's policy to know what the total cost is before you book.
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Mexico City. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room for everyone's suitcases and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Mexico City vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
In Mexico you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Budget. You may also purchase additional insurance through Budget, if you know your insurance won't cover you while traveling through Mexico. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Budget does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
We encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Budget. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Mexico City definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different location. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Mexico City, having access to your own ride lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to discover more of Mexico, you can go wherever you like, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or looking through a bus schedule.
Before you head out of town, book your Budget Mexico City rental car and zip off to take in all the must-do activities at your leisure. Go with CarRentals.com and speed along the road in Mexico City, Mexico.
