What you need to know before you go
How do I get a Playa Del Carmen Economy car rental at a great rate?
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. But booking your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I get my rental car in Playa Del Carmen?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Playa Del Carmen's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Playa Del Carmen set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Economy's policies to find out if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Playa Del Carmen?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Playa Del Carmen. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room for everyone's suitcases and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Playa Del Carmen trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Mexico?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Mexico. You can buy additional insurance through Economy for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover you while traveling through Mexico. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Playa Del Carmen. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Economy car rental?
Economy does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Economy will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Playa Del Carmen. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Economy?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You should get your vehicle topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Economy. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Playa Del Carmen?
Playa Del Carmen certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Playa Del Carmen.
Does Economy offer one-way rentals in Playa Del Carmen?
Economy usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
