KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Acapulco

  • People considering car rentals in Acapulco have the right idea. When you secure an Acapulco car rental, you are giving yourself the freedom to explore some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. You can not only drive around the vibrant city of Acapulco, but you can drive to the different beaches surrounding Acapulco Bay and drive up and down the coast to beach cities such as Barra Vieja or Luces en el Mar. You can also drive into the Sierra Madre del Sierra mountains. Whatever tickles your fancy in Acapulco, you can explore it on your own schedule.
  • The Acapulco International Airport (ACA) is about 14 miles southeast of downtown Acapulco, thus making it an ideal location for securing car rentals in Acapulco. You can easily access car rental agency kiosks on the lower level of the Acapulco International Airport, where you'll find a number of recognizable international car rental agencies. When you get car rentals in Acapulco from ACA, you will need to have a valid driver's license, a credit card, proof that you are 25 years old or older, and Mexican car insurance.
  • When you are driving around Acapulco, you should pay to drive on toll roads or cuotas when you get the chance. The free highways tend to be narrow with no shoulder and blind curves, and there can be people, burros, or chickens in the middle of the road. The toll roads on the other hand have Green Angels pickup trucks that patrol the roads with mechanics and medical aid in order to help you in case you get stranded or have an accident.
  • Make sure that when you are driving car rentals in Acapulco, you have Mexican car insurance. Car insurance is not required of Mexican drivers, so there is no guarantee of coverage in case of an accident, whether it is the other person’s fault or not. Therefore, you want to be covered in case of any mishap. Also, pay close attention when you stop at gas stations. Make sure that the meter on the gas pump is at zero when they start pumping the gas. Gas station attendants have been known to scam tourists by starting the meter at 100 MXN (around 5.8 USD) so that they can overcharge you.
  • Book your rental car in Acapulco at least 6 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Acapulco are around 58% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Acapulco?

    Since traffic in Acapulco is notorious for being constantly congested, a smaller car may be easier to navigate through the city. However, many of the roads are in poor condition, and a larger, sturdier car might be more to your liking. Also, if you are going to be driving outside of the city, many of the roads leading out of Acapulco seem to literally drive through the middle of nowhere. Thus, you might feel safer in a larger vehicle.

  • What's the speed limit in Acapulco?

    On major highways around Acapulco, the speed limit is generally 130 km/h (about 80 mph). Within the city of Acapulco itself, the speed limit tends to be 40 km/h (about 25 mph). However, on small and crowded streets, which you might certainly encounter in Acapulco, the speed limit is generally 10 km/h (6 mph). Always drive with caution, as even a fender bender can become a major headache in a foreign country.

  • Where are the best places to park in Acapulco?

    Many of the beaches surrounding Acapulco Bay have free parking. Along the Pacific to the north and to the south of Acapulco, many beaches have free parking lots as well. While parking on the streets in Acapulco is not metered, many of the streets have " owners”. This means that there are people on the street who will watch your car in order to prevent it from coming to harm or being damaged in exchange for a tip.

We did not use this rental service. When we arrived at the office the person handling the car rental was very difficult. So we left and went to another company - which was wonderful. A number if problems occurred with Europcar: -The person at the desk was incredibly difficult and had no manners or communication skills - They wanted a colored copy of my husband's passport. We only use black and white prints and never take our original copies on a road trip in Mexico. IF it is necessary to bring the original passport it should be written on the conformation. - I booked the car rental in my husband's name because he was the main driver, and if I wanted to add my name on the contract he was going to charge a much higher rate than the one we booked. He was impossible to deal with. Please cancel this booking and credit my credit card.

Nov 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Absolutely nothing. The manager, Cesar Salazar, was very pushy and rude. He didn’t accept the insurance I had purchased with Kayak and forced me to buy another insurance plan. I felt very pressured and due to the known crime in the area, he made me scared for my own well being so I caved and bought it.

Cons:

Get rid of him.

Cons:

I booked on at the “special” price of $30 US dollars. When we arrived to pickup the car, we were told it would be $249. Then the manager came out and said he could reduce the price to $175. After we refused for the second time finally he said his lowest price would be $135. We decided not to rent from this company.
