KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Mexicali

  • Car rentals in Mexicali offer several advantages over relying solely on public buses or trains. With a rental car, you'll navigate the region's popular tourist destinations and off-the-beaten-path gems without being constrained by fixed bus or train schedules. Moreover, car rentals in Mexicali grant you the freedom to set your own pace, create your own itineraries, control the climate inside the vehicle, and travel with your group or family without the hassle of crowded buses or trains. Some of the accessible attractions via a ride from Mexicali car rentals are the Institute for Cultural Research Museum UABC, Bosque y Zoológico de la Ciudad, and Museo Sol del Niño.
  • Mexicali International Airport (MXL) is the main airport serving Mexicali and its neighborhood. Upon arrival at this airport, exit the luggage claim area and proceed to the car rental counters located on your left. The rental counters feature friendly and trained staff who will guide you through the rental process. The minimum age to rent a vehicle from Mexicali car rentals is 21. Moreover, some of the car rental suppliers will subject drivers between the ages of 21 and 24 to an additional daily charge.
  • The driving culture in Mexicali is characterized by a mix of adherence to traffic rules and a degree of informality. The city's roads are well maintained. However, there is a tendency among some drivers to be less vigilant about following traffic rules. Speed limits are often treated as suggestions rather than strict limits, and it's quite common to see drivers exceed the posted limits on the city's wide, straight roads. Stop signs and red lights are usually obeyed, although some drivers might engage in rolling stops. However, it's crucial to be cautious of occasional reckless driving behaviors and be prepared for unexpected maneuvers from other motorists to ensure your safety and that of other road users, including pedestrians and cyclists. It's recommended that you check with the city's DMV in case of any traffic law updates before getting car rentals in Mexicali.
  • Rush hour in Mexicali occurs during the early morning and late afternoon on weekdays. The peak hours are from around 7 am to 9 am and then again from around 5 pm to 7 pm. During these hours, major roads such as Avenida de los Presidentes, Boulevard Benito Juarez, and Calle Quinta feature heavy traffic congestion. To avoid rush-hour congestion, consider alternative routes such as Calle Novena or Calle Octava. Driving can be challenging during Mexicali's hot and dry months, especially during the summer. The scorching desert temperatures can lead to discomfort and increased vehicle stress. It's advisable to ensure that the vehicle is equipped to handle high temperatures during these months.
  • Book your rental car in Mexicali at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Mexicali are around 74% cheaper than other car types, on average

Cons:

We made our reservation to pick the vehicle up at about 10am for a 5pm pick up from the airport. When we arrived at 4:15. We landed a little early and there was no one at the Payless booth. We waited about 25 minutes and still no one showed up to we had to get someone from Hertz to call them for us. They said they’d be there in 25 mins so they should have arrived at 5:15. The guy did not show up until 6:15. He brought us a dirty car w a broken side mirror housing, two cracks in the windshield, and the car had less then a quarter tank of gas, so before I even got to my hotel the fuel light came on. We didn’t leave the airport until after 7pm. When we came back to return the car the same thing happened, there was no one at the booth and we had to have Hertz call them. They did arrive much sooner this time but it put us as risk of missing our flight.
