What you need to know before you go
How do I find the best rates on a Tijuana Budget car rental?
We strive to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. But getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my vehicle in Tijuana?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Tijuana's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Tijuana is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Budget's policy to know what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Tijuana?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Tijuana. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Tijuana vacation can choose the premium category to get a car 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 from Budget. You can purchase additional insurance through Budget, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Many major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually offer coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger 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 Tijuana. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Budget car rental?
Budget requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Tijuana. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Budget rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Budget. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Tijuana certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Tijuana.
Does Tijuana Budget offer one-way car rentals?
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another Budget. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
