What you need to know for the road
How do I get the best prices on a Guatemala Dollar rental car?
We try to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. However, getting well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I get my car rental in Guatemala?
You'll need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Guatemala's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Guatemala require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Dollar's policy to determine what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Dollar rental car should I get for my trip to Guatemala?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Guatemala. Compact or economy cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Guatemala trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Guatemala?
In Guatemala you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Dollar. Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically offer coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Guatemala. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Dollar car rental?
Dollar requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Dollar will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Dollar car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle with the needle at "F". If you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Dollar.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Guatemala certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Guatemala.
Does Dollar offer one-way rentals in Guatemala?
Dollar offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
