The right insurance for your trip through Central America


Choose fully comprehensive insurance without excess

In Central America, roads are not always in good condition. Even if you are a competent and safe driver, accidents or damage to your rental car may occur. So that you can still enjoy your holiday despite such a situation, we recommend that you take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess. With this option you have to pay the costs for the damage in advance. However, you will be refunded afterwards. Simply submit all the necessary papers and documents to your insurance company.

Lago de Atitlán in Guatemala

Discover the impressive volcanic scenery around Lago de Atitlán in Guatemala - the undisputedly most beautiful lake in Central America. In addition to a breathtaking panorama, you will also find a unique flora and fauna. Especially when the lake is covered by fog, there is a mystical aura at the Lago de Atitlán that you should not miss.


The white sandy beaches in front of the Gulf of Mexico or the legendary seaside resort Acapulco provide pure relaxation. You will find a dreamlike beach with a fascinating backdrop at the Riviera Maya in Tulum. Here you can visit the ruins and then sunbathe on the beach. A special insider tip is the Isla Holbox, a small Mexican paradise. Park your rental car at one of the parking lots and take the ferry. Unlike Cancún, this Mexican island is ideal for relaxing. The long white sandy beach is ideal for long walks.

For this reason you can select the option additional driver with us. Take turns driving the rental car and enjoy the breathtaking landscapes of Central America as a passenger.

What to look out for when renting a car in Central America

Unterwegs in Mittelamerika

  • Central America can be easily travelled by rental car. An international driving license is required.
  • After heavy rainfall, the road conditions in rural areas can deteriorate. It is therefore advisable to choose a rental car with all-wheel drive.
  • Despite the well-developed network of petrol stations, it is advisable not to drive to the last drop. In very remote areas, petrol is also sold in canisters.
  • It should also be noted that tolls are levied on the central stretches of motorway. Keep the receipt in a safe place, as there are frequent checks.
  • In larger cities, special attention is required, as many local drivers tend to see traffic rules only as guidelines. Sometimes red traffic lights or stop signs are crossed.
