What you need to know for the road
How do I get the best prices on a Playa Del Carmen National rental car?
We try to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your car. But reserving your car well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Playa Del Carmen?
You will need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Playa Del Carmen's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Playa Del Carmen is 21. Take time to read through National's policy, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Playa Del Carmen?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Playa Del Carmen. Economy or compact automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Playa Del Carmen vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Mexico?
In Mexico you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. You can buy additional insurance through National for your trip, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover you while traveling through Mexico. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Playa Del Carmen. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
National requires a deposit when you book your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National. 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 take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Playa Del Carmen?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
