There is no better way to see everything Cancun has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Thrifty rental car. Stop spending your vacation waiting on the bus, or wasting money here and there with ride-shares or taxis. Having your own car allows you to go to the places you want to see the most, whenever you want. Make your next getaway to Mexico more enjoyable with a Thrifty car rental.
With all there is to do and see in and around the Cancun region, you'll want to take in more than the block your hotel is on during your visit. Whether you are dying to check out the chophouse that has received rave reviews across town or check out some of the local hot spots, you'll want your own vehicle to take in as much as possible during your trip. Wherever you drive to in Cancun, if you want to get the most out of your visit, having your auto is key.
We work with some of the finest companies, like Thrifty, because they are well-known for their success in supplying visitors with the best autos. We can help your visit get off on the right foot.
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your car. However, getting ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
You'll need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Cancun is 21. Take time to review Thrifty's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Cancun. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Cancun getaway can choose a higher-end model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In Mexico you do need to have insurance before you rent. You may also buy additional insurance through Thrifty, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, offer 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 company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Thrifty does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Cancun. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
We suggest a full tank policy. You should get your car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Thrifty.
Cancun definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Thrifty typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Cancun, having the keys to your own car lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to discover more of Mexico, you can drive when you like, without having to spend time waiting for the bus or hail a taxicab.
Before you head out of town, book your Thrifty Cancun rental car and zip off to take in all the items on your itinerary at your own pace. Go through CarRentals.com and drive the streets in Cancun, Mexico.
