I am considering to rent a car in México and found some reasonable fares online.

I saw a couple of videos though that mentioned that to those prices a fee was added when picking the car. Apparently the insurance (that's what I understood, but it can be something else) is not included yet.

Is that the case? Are there hidden fees that I should be aware of before renting online?

  • There could be a myriad of extra fees depending on your circumstances eg Collision Damage Waiver, additional driver(s), excess mileage, refuelling before returning the vehicle – Traveller Jul 5 '19 at 8:31
  • Generally, the insurance you will be offered is the minimum legal cover, so third party only. If so it is prudent to pay extra (and it can be quite a lot extra) for comprehensive cover. At one airport on a small island, a well-known franchise rental charged me for a full tank of fuel and told me to bring the car back empty. Wonderful scam on a captive customer. – Weather Vane Jul 5 '19 at 8:31
  • When I rented in Mexico all was included. They did give me a smaller car than promised though. Of course YMMV. – ugoren Jul 5 '19 at 14:21
