Rental Car Agency in Cancun, Q. R. / CUN

I was planning on renting via Hertz in CUN but on seeing some feedback on here and elsewhere have cancelled my plans.

Can anyone recommend anyone decent to go with at CUN, or am I simply better hiring a driver/ paying for transfers on any days I want to travel? Enterprise seem well reviewed on Yelp

Its mad that Hertz let such an operation run under their name when you read some of the tales on the internet!

What's so bad about this location?

I rented from Hertz in CUN about 18 months ago with no problems. Yes there were no benefits I am accustomed to with rentals in the US but I didn't expect them either.

Given this thread isn't really Hertz specific, I'll move this to the Mexico forum.


Thanks

Check Avis.mx and use a discount code (e.g. costco) - usually cheaper and includes the third party liability required. Avis is my go-to at CUN and has always been good - never an issue or hard sell. Another option is to rent nearer your hotel. Hertz PDC is quite OK.

I've just been going through this for an upcoming trip. Most of the name brand companies show absurdly low rates (intermediate for $33 a week at Hertz) but apparently then load the back-end up with mandatory insurance at the rental counter, or so the internet says. I read mostly positive reviews about Easyway so that's who I went with, so I shall see.

Book with Avis. They're the only company we know of in Cancun that doesn't play those insurance games.

I use Avant in Cancun. I have never had an issue with them. All insurance is included, so what you see is what you pay. Cars are new, clean and safe.
