Does Cancun require rental car insurance?

Insurance is always required, wherever you rent a vehicle. That said, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full using your credit card, the card's policy may also insure you. Keep in mind, those policies may not provide 100% coverage, and you'll have to add it to your booking for Cancun. Check in advance and, if it is necessary, you can easily add it at the CarRentals.com checkout.

What is the difference between all the fuel policies?

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.

You will have to find an open gas station close to the drop-off location
Policy TypePolicy DescriptionAdvantagesDisadvantages
Full to FullThe tank will be full when you pick up your vehicle. Use as much gas as you wish and then refill the tank when you drop the vehicle off at the rental office. If you refill the tank before you return your car, you won't be charged a refueling costYou only pay for the fuel you use. If you only use half of a tank, you'll only have to refill half of a tank, and therefore avoid paying for any you don't need. You won't pay more than local fuel prices and you'll only pay service fees if you don't fill up the tank
Full to empty (pre-paid)You pay for a full tank of fuel when you pick the car up and bring the car back with the tank empty. Some providers offer a refund for any unused fuel. Be sure to check with them beforehandThere will be no need to go searching for a gas station before you drop-off your carThe supplier usually charges a higher rate for the fuel than a local gas station
Empty to emptyYou will not have a full tank of fuel when you pick up your vehicle, and you don't have to refill the gas when you drop it back offYou fill the tank yourself, so you can shop around for the cheapest local pricesYou'll have to fill up before you do any serious driving

What fuel policy should I get?

Most suppliers provide you a full to full tank policy. We encourage returning the car with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, find a gas station before returning the car rental.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.

Before you leave the lot

Before you get going on your Cancun vacation, be sure you check out a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot. You should:

  • Look over the car and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
  • Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new area
