The agents in Belize were excellent and very patient with us. We appreciated the tips they gave us and the time they spent making sure all was well.

I am a repeat customer at Alamo in Belize City, because they have always taken good care of me. They have also provided the most competitive prices. Several trips back I took a "better offer" from a competitor which ended up sending me to a third company, which in turn doubled the stated price. I went back to Alamo the next trip, and now for this trip.

The staff at Alamo was really helpful and made me feel really at ease about the rental process in a country I hadn't been to before.

Great car with fast friendly service. Worked well for our trip around several locations in Belize.We needed a car seat and there was not one on site. Fortunately the representative was able to get one for us quickly at another rental company close by.

The car was actually kind of a piece of garbage. The AC got mediocre cool and the back passenger door wouldn't shut. I ended up having to rent from another car rental because the site.location couldn't fix the problem.

The car had the service engine light on when I rented it. They said it was because of the quality or lack of quality of gas available in Belize. Every time you started the car it said routine maintenance was due. The ASB lights came on from time to time while driving. When starting the car the next time it was cleared out. The car has an awful vibration when you reached speeds just below 50 mph. It was not in the steering wheel so I assumed the tires were out of balance. This was the forth time to rent a car from the airport in Belize. We have never seen such poor quality of a rental car and we have never seen the service engine light on because of the quality of the gas put in the car.

Great staff very courteous and friendly.The car was less comfortable than expected, the radio reception picked up nothing after we left the airport area and we rented other cars in the past that did work. All in all it was still a pleasant trip.

There was no car reserved as expected although they did find us a car, albeit with 167,000 miles and a back door which did not open. We had no problems with the car for the most part but then dropping off, the office was closed.

Staff in Placencia was helpful.Car was unsafe to drive and even had to be removed from road after we encountered problems part way to our destination.

didn't have our carWe had to rent through another company because Avis didn't have the car we reserved. It ended up causing us a ton of hassles.

Only a couple of international flights arrive in the evening in Belize City and everyone knows their schedule. Our flight was delayed leaving Houston, it arrived an hour late and when we got to the AVIS place at 5:30 we found the the person working there had gone home at 5:00. Other rental companies were open and waiting for passengers. We rented a car from one of them.

HORRIBLE - no cars available at pick-upNothing.Well, they didn't have a car for me so I waste don't $25USD on a cab to the airport from Belize City and then had to spend another $25 to get back into the city. I'm a go with the flow travler so it didn't ruin anything persay , but my entire plans had to change that day. Horrible service, call ahead and make sure they have a car ready for you!!!! Belize was incredible though:)

Was closed when we landed at 5pmI reserved this car a month in advance since I was traveling in a party of 6 and wanted to be sure to have a vehicle large enough to carry us all. Our plane landed at 4:45, it was 5 by the time we went through customs and retrieved our luggage, Avis was closed. We had to find another rental company. We were lucky that the other rental company had a vehicle large enough for us, but it was a 15 passenger van and cost alot more. I will never rent through Avis again because of this.

Bait and switchRented a car from Avis through kayak for my trip to Belize. Once in Belize airport Avis I was told no cars were available and sent to another company that would honor the rental price. However I ended up having to pay about US $150 more for the car. Also I was told the third party rental car insurance I bought through kakak's site would not be honored and was pressured into buying the local rental company's insurance.

Kayak Avis Rental ScamUpon arriving in Belize Avis did not have a car reserved for us and thecrental sgencies would not honor the insurance purchased through Kayak on line. We did end up getting a rental though another angency but the entire transaction through Kayak turned out to be worthless. You are better off working through the rental car agencies themselves as we were told.

Belize trip car rental at AvisThe trunk of the car could not close, that was a slight inconvenience due to the fact we had luggage and it had to be placed in the back seat of the car but overall the rental was great.Trunk of the car could not close.

The agent was great - there just wasn't a car available. And the insurance I had paid for online was not showing up in Belize and could not be transferred to the local rental the Avis rep put me in touch with.

The agency we originally made a reservation through did not have a car available when we arrived. They were kind in asking other agencies if they could assist us, but the vehicle we managed to secure was in very very poor shape mechanically. The trip across the country for the nearly two weeks was very difficult with such an unreliable and dangerously maintained vehicle. It was an adventure.

Top tips for renting a car at Belize City Philip S.W.Goldson Airport

  • You can get around Belize City more comfortably and easily with a car than with other public transport options. A car rental at Belize City Philip S.W. Goldson Airport is an excellent means of traveling comfortably on a budget, especially if you are accompanied by friends or family members and you are planning to explore different spots in the city, which may not be accessible using public means. Bus, shuttle, and taxi services follow a predetermined route to the city, but driving by yourself allows you to move freely, visiting your desired POIs, such as the Mayan ruin of Altun Ha, whenever you please. Besides, it saves you the time you’d spend waiting for a bus or shuttle.
  • One practical tip for getting cheaper rates with a car rental at Belize City Philip S.W. Goldson Airport (BZE) is to book while still in your country of residence. It's advisable to rent the car online about a month or two before your flight date. There's a limited number of rental vehicles in Belize City, which means the high demand during the high season may lead to slightly inflated car rental prices.
  • Do you have auto insurance coverage or a credit/debit card to stow on your rental agreement? An effective means to alleviate extra insurance costs is to check whether your auto insurance also holds in Belize City. Most car insurance policies exclude off-road and 4X4 WD cars, but most rental operators at Philip Airport consider off-road coverage. Some on-airport car rental agencies sell additional insurance to reduce your deductible.
  • Once you start the engine of your rental vehicle, remember motorists are required by law to steer on the right-hand side of the road like in the US. In Belize, there's an unusual driving policy that motorists can make a left-hand turn when moving on a highway. In that case, they'll first have to pull over to the right-hand side and wait for following and oncoming traffic to clear, and then make the turn. On highways, the maximum speed is 55 mph, while motorists can reach a maximum speed of 25 mph on city roads.
  • Book your rental car at Belize City Philip S.W.Goldson Airport at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
