I arrived in Cancun and then was told that Fox no longer exists and it is owned by Europecar. They insisted I have insurance for their car and I had already purchased insurance online. (They said that was 3rd party and did not cover their car) They wanted me to put an $8000.00 hold on my credit card. I was going to leave and told them I will take the bus. Then all of a sudden they only had to put a 400.00 hold and still the rate I had already purchased was increased by more than double. Next time I'll use a reputable US owned rental car company!

I rent in Cancun several times a year, usually with Fox. Their fleet is pretty good, service usually OK. My main complaint with Fox is the argument we usually have about Supplementary Liability Insurance (SLI). Earlier this year, I was able to decline all additional insurance (CDW/LDW through my credit card) and the extra SLI they typically try to upsell. The policy itself states that there is $750,000 MXP of liability insurance on any car you rent. If you decline, they will charge extra as a deposit. This time (Dec. 2019) they tried to tell me that new law was implemented in February (total BS) that raised the SLI amount to $3 million MXP and it was mandatory. Their own website says SLI is 'optional. I've heard this before, many times. This time they refused to let me have the car unless I accepted this mandatory insurance (about USD $19/day). I just wish they would be consistent. The rental cost itself is extremely cheap, so basically you are paying for insurance and get the car free. I am looking into this further and hope to find a definitive answer to this issue.

I have two written quotes of 7.14 usd for rental of a car from Nov 19 to Dec 3. I spoke three times with your representatives who assured me that 3rd party was built into the car and my credit card would cover the collision. When we went to take the car back they accused us of damaging the radiator. How would we have been able to check under the car for damage when we picked it up. We had someone look under and indeed it had been damaged but appeared as though someone had fixed it previously ridiculous. When I went to pay the man assured me three times that the bill would be 4,231.50 pesos = 288.04 I just looked at my credit card bill. I was charged 297.63 dollars on November 19 and 364.11 dollars on December 3. When we picked up the car at night we couldn't even see through the windshield it was so dirty I am appalled at the level of deceit this company would stoop to. I will be taking this up with the better business bureau and my credit card. I've rented many times in Mexico with no problems. WORST company ever

What kind of rental car should I get for Cancun?
Sure, you can do Cancun without renting a vehicle. But with loads to check out here, having one would definitely make your getaway more fun and convenient. If you’re eager to get out of the city and into nature, pick a car rental with a bit of power. A larger car like an SUV will get you to the area’s coral reefs in roomy comfort. Spending most of your escape in the city center? An economical, small car will be your best bet. Maneuvering through narrow lanes and squeezing into tight parking spots will be a lot less stressful in one of these.
Should I get a luxury rental car in Cancun?
You’ll be pleased to hear that there’s a great range of both economy and high-end rental vehicles on offer in Cancun. What you end up opting for will depend on how much you want to spend and what you plan to do. Specialty and prestige vehicles often spare no expense when it comes to comfort and class. If you’re splashing out, why not pick an SUV with all the bells and whistles, or perhaps an upmarket mid-sized sedan? On the other hand, if you’re just after a set of wheels to whiz around town in as efficiently as possible, maybe go for an economy compact vehicle (or something else that won’t blow your budget).
Is it difficult to park in Cancun?
Finding a place to leave the car in Cancun is a cinch. You won’t have to circle the block in dense traffic here — and that’s what the locals love about it. There’s plenty of on and off-street parking available.

You aren’t permitted to turn at a red light in Cancun. If you encounter one, take the opportunity to enjoy a mindful moment until the light turns green.
Are seat belts compulsory in Benito Juárez?
