If you want to see everything Playa Del Carmen has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Thrifty. Stop wasting your vacation waiting on the bus, or wasting money here and there with ride-shares or taxis. When you have access to your own ride, you can go wherever you want to go, when you want. Make your next getaway to Mexico even better with a Thrifty car rental.
With all there is to do and see in and around Playa Del Carmen, you'll want to take in more than the block your hotel is on while on your stay. Whether you have to try that well-reviewed chophouse across town or see some of the local hot spots, you'll want your own auto to explore as much as you can while on your vacation. Wherever you drive to in Playa Del Carmen, if you want to get the most out of your time in the city, having access to your auto is a must.
We work with some of the finest rental car dealers, like Thrifty, to not only get you the auto you desire for your future business trip, but also the best price. Thrifty is well-known for their successful track record in supplying travelers with the best autos on the road. We can help you and your trip get off on the right foot.
We strive to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, booking your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Make sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Playa Del Carmen is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Thrifty's policy to know what the total cost is before you book.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Playa Del Carmen. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Playa Del Carmen vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
In Mexico you do need to have insurance before you rent. You can buy additional insurance through Thrifty, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Playa Del Carmen. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Thrifty requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Thrifty. 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 in Playa Del Carmen.
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different Thrifty. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Playa Del Carmen, having your own ride lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to explore more of Mexico, you can go when you want to, without having to wait for the bus or wave down a taxicab.
