KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Cabo San Lucas

  • A hire car is by far the best option to explore not only Cabo San Lucas, but also its surrounding area, with its secluded beaches and nearby towns that are well worth a day trip. The whole Tourist Corridor connecting San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas features a vast array of gorgeous beaches, so drive along the 20-mile stretch and make scenic stops as you please with your hire car.
  • All the major car hire companies, including Avis and Alamo, can be found at San Jose Del Cabo International Airport (SJD), which is about a 40-minute drive from Cabo San Lucas. Most car hire desks can be found in the Arrivals Hall area after going through baggage claim and customs, but some will have off-site offices, in which case they’ll provide a shuttle. You’ll need an International Driver’s Permit, as well as Mexican car insurance for the length of your hire contract.
  • Navigating Cabo San Lucas is fairly easy, but remember most traffic signs will be in Spanish only. The city is very popular during spring break and school vacations, which means the roads will be more crowded during those seasons. There are also several speed bumps across town. Most highways in Mexico are tolled, including the one that goes to the airport, so make sure you always have Mexican pesos or American dollars in cash with you.
  • Bumper-to-bumper traffic does happen sometimes in the Los Cabos area, especially during the summer and spring break seasons. Traffic jams in the surrounding Cabo San Lucas roads are also common, so avoid driving into town during the morning rush hour (between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m.) or out of town, particularly on weekends, after 5 p.m. If you’re heading to the airport during these times, plan your journey in advance.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Cabo San Lucas for $253 or less
  • Book your rental car in Cabo San Lucas at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Cabo San Lucas are around 61% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Cabo San Lucas

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Cabo San Lucas?

    For travelers who don’t require much passenger or luggage space, a small, compact car will be enough to drive to the beach and easily park downtown. A convertible is a fun option for when the weather allows you to drive with the top down, and a minivan is recommended if traveling with the whole family.

  • What’s the speed limit in Cabo San Lucas?

    The speed limit in urban areas is usually 60 km/h (37 mph), but it may be lower in certain residential areas, so watch out for the posted signs.

    Street parking is available within the white curb marks, while red curbs mean parking isn’t allowed. Keep an eye out for meters as some parking spaces require payment.

Pros:

Easy to find the downtown Cabo office and I preferred it this way, having rented from the airport prior - saved a few days of the car sitting at the resort when we didn't need it. Check it was straightforward. Nice VW Jetta.

Cons:

Not much. They're good. Waited a few minutes for the car, but no complaints. Easy, cost effective. See you next time.

Pros:

Jonathan was helpful and honest. He explained everything clearly and did not pressure upsell me on unneeded insurances. I printed a letter from my RBC Westjet mastercard company that declared that CDW insurance was included. I expected it to be high pressure slaes but the entire process was pleasant and i went back a second time to rent because i knew he'd be good.

Cons:

When i returned the car at Cabo airport i filled up right beside the Alamo office. The gas station attendant pumped the gas but when i returned it the Alamo rep (not Jonathan - he's in Cabo San Lucas) claimed it was slightly below full. Fortunately he said he'd not charge me.

Convenient location to many of the resorts. Car was ready. and clean

Cons:

Even though I prechecked in, it took 20-30 minutes to get car, and I was only customer Rate was quoted in $ with high peso exchange rate, bill was charged in pesos so final cost was somewhat more than I was expecting due to exchange rate quoted.

Prices listed at websites Kayak offers are not true at all! We thought we were paying $283.00 but in reality, it was around $1000 with the insurance taxes etc. when you go to pick up the car. We canceled. Please get it right. This can completely ruin trips!

I thought I rented the car at SJD, but the office turned out to be 25 miles away in Cabo San Lucas. There were no cars available at SJD and when I called the Cabo office, he said he had no car for me. It ended up taking me over six hours to get to La Paz via cab and bus. I would never rent from Budget again.
