Where is the pick-up station for the rental car at Cancún Airport?

Rental car stations - convenient located

Rental car stations - convenient located

Whether you arrive at Terminal 1 or Terminal 3 depends primarily on your airline or your country of origin. Most likely, however, you will enter Mexican soil in Terminal 3 and, depending on the car rental company, you will be able to pick up the documents for your rental car either at the airport in Terminal 2 near the baggage carousel or in Terminal 3 near the exit. However, since some car rental companies do not have their own pick-up station in the airport building, it is possible that an employee of the car rental company is already waiting for you at the exit and will drive you to the company's offices outside the airport building in a shuttle.

Driveboo tip:

Our tip: Use the free shuttle bus between the terminals to get to your destination faster.

What do I have to consider with the rental car in Mexico?

⌃
  • Check the rental car when you pick it up to make sure it is in good technical condition.
  • Since there are few gas stations, especially in rural areas, you should fill up the rental car immediately after pickup, unless you have booked a full/full fuel arrangement.
  • As a rule, a normal driver's license is sufficient in Mexico. However, we recommend that you carry an international driver's license with you, as this will keep you on the safe side in case of a police check or an accident.
  • In principle, you can move freely in Mexico with a rental car and explore the country on your own. However, in some areas you should refrain from driving at night.
  • Also, make sure that you park the rental car only in designated parking areas to avoid unnecessary trouble with the police.

Can I book a rental car without excess at Cancún Airport?

⌃

A rental car without excess is available from 12 $ per day. In case of damage no further costs come on you then. Simply check the box "Without excess" in the search mask. If you plan to spend a lot of time outdoors and off-road, glass, tire and underbody insurance is also recommended. In any case, read through the rental conditions to see if driving on off-road roads is permitted with the rental car.

In addition, we always recommend booking accommodation with a supervised parking lot, as this way you do not have to worry about the rental car.

What extras are included in the price of the rental car at Cancún Airport?

⌃

Extras and inclusive services such as a navigation device, an additional driver or unlimited kilometers are already included in the rental price, depending on the offer. Additional extras such as a child seat can be specified when booking in the reservation form under the item "Additional equipment" or alternatively in the field "Message to our service team". The applicable fees for this can be found in the rental terms and conditions and are usually payable upon acceptance of the rental car on site.

In addition, the price of the rental car always includes liability insurance. On Driveboo you will find the right rental car for every occasion and you can easily book extras.

Can I pick up the rental car at Cancún Airport and return it at another location?

⌃

You can also return the rental car at a car rental in another location in Mexico, such as Playa del Carmen or Tulum. To do this, simply change the return location in the search mask. There are additional fees for the so-called one-way rental. Thanks to the one-way rental, you can go on an exciting road trip in Mexico with friends or family without having to return to the place of departure.

Be aware that some roads in Mexico are subject to tolls (quota). These are usually precisely marked on signs, and you can pay at small houses for the respective section of the road.
