Stop wasting 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 areas you want to see the most, when you want. Make your next getaway to Mexico more enjoyable with an Alamo car rental.

What you need to know about car rentals in Cancun
How do I get a Cancun Alamo rental car at a great price?
We try to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your car. But reserving ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Cancun?
You will need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Cancun?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Cancun is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Alamo's policy to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Cancun?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Cancun. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have more room for everyone's luggage and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Cancun vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Mexico require car insurance?
In Mexico you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. You can purchase additional insurance through Alamo for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, 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 purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Alamo require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Alamo does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Cancun. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You should receive your car topped off. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Alamo.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Cancun definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Alamo offer one-way rentals in Cancun?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different Alamo. However, there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
