Scam
Cons: I thought I had a rental reservation until I walked into the Hertz office in Playa Del Carmen. I was informed they had no cars, reason given was customers were keeping cars longer than their original return date. Literally next door is a rental company called Firefly. They had cars at double the Hertz price. I did rent from them. They got the car from Hertz. My contract is a Hertz contract in a Firefly envelope. The lady at Hertz who said no cars available gave Firefly the car. The key was on a Hertz key chain. Hertz personal checked out the car for me. They have no shame. I wanted to keep the car an extra day. So I called Firefly and got there main office. They told me no one was answering the phone in Playa. I drove over to it and found the office closed. I walked into Hertz and he said he could check the car back in. I asked for an extra day. He said it would be very expensive to do so. I returned the car to Hertz staff who closed out my contract. While I was there more than a few persons walked in with reservations and were told no cars were available. I have always dreaded renting cars in Mexico but this experience was an all time low. Does Hertz car at all about there name?

Very bad experience with Hertz!
Cons: They didn't give me a car bcos I was 30 mins late. I had to find a different car rental company. I was delayed by 3 hrs because of Hertz. Kayak it was the worst experience ever, though I have booked flights and cars/ hotels from your site for years and never faced such an issue.

Why make a reservation?
Pros: Nothing. Made reservations and left hotel at 5am for 7am rental pickup. No cars were available. The lady working the counter at Hertz was there for the day, so I don't who was running hell at the time.

Be careful and do take pictures of the car
Cons: The pick up was quite easy. Although we booked the car for 8 am and it was only ready for us at 10am (they were finishing cleaning it and then we reviewed the contract/car state etc). My issue was at drop off. They tried to make us liable for a scratch that was already there before pick up. We were very lucky to have pictures of the car we took on pick up day to prove it wan't us. But even with that it was a struggle to prove it was the same scratch. I am used to car rental companies so I expect those types of issues (hence the pictures) but still, this is a stressful and unpleasant experience for anyone who doesn't want to be charged hundreds randomly.

Pros: When we booked it online we were asked if we wanted insurance. I declined, because I know my auto insurance covers rentals. I was told at the rental place that I needed to buy insurance, that was quite expensive. I was told that if I didn't I needed to put 8,000 dollars down. Because of that we ended up not renting the car. We made a lot of plans around getting that car. We decided to book it online because we believed it would cost a certain price. We were mislead.

Pretty easy process through and through
Pros: After booking on line, we made our way to the office. The translation was at times a bit rough, but everything was settled rather quickly. The car was new, clean and ready to go (only had 3/4 of a tank of gas - make note of this). We purchased the Full coverage insurance for safety measures - well advised for many reasons! Over all the experience was a good one.
Cons: We purchased the Full coverage insurance - no deductible. When you park in Mexico, door dings are a very, very common occurrence. When we took the car back, the inspector picked them out and I have a feeling if we didn't have full coverage, they would have wanted us to pay for them. See my point regarding full coverage!

DON'T EVER RENT WITH BUDGET - worst decision of my
Pros: I would have liked the low upfront cost, but the final cost ended up being so much higher that it actually just makes sense to go with a rental car company with better cars, a slightly higher price, and better customer service.
Cons: Choosing Budget rental car for my business trip was the absolute WORST idea I made my entire trip. This is the review I left on the Budget website so that you get a sense of what we had to deal with: It took over an hour for us to pick up the car in Playa del Carmen (despite having made an online reservation), and when it was finally brought around- your staff did a super lenient inspection, simply glancing at the car and then letting us know that it "looked fine to them." We had to tell your staff that the radio wasn't working, to which your staff laughed and came into the car and poked around with a paper clip, saw that it still didn't work, said they would mark the paper accordingly, and sent us on our way. Upon returning the car at the airport in Cancun (without getting into any accidents), your staff at that location decided to do a super thorough inspection- inspecting both the inside, the outside, and even the bottom underside of the car. We were then told that we would be charged for a small scratch on the underside of the car near the tire (where your Playa del Carmen staff didn't even remotely check) as well as for a missing antenna because despite the radio not working and the antenna clearly being missing from the beginning, the Playa del Carmen staff didn't go back and mark the paper like they told us they would for the missing antenna. My biggest problem, however, comes with your staff that I had to deal with on site in Cancun. They were absolutely unqualified and disrespectful. Each time calmly asked them to explain the charges to us, they continued to laugh and speak over us to each other. We asked to speak to a supervisor and were told that we would have to wait another hour because our issue wasn't a priority. None of your staff was able to explain to us why we were being charged and yet we were told that we "had to wait" and were denied access to your company-provided shuttle to get to our flight. I almost missed my flight back to NY because of your staff essentially holding me hostage at your Budget counter for over 45 minutes. My experience with your company was horrendous. Super unprofessional. And I left feeling frustrated having to deal with staff that was overly UNqualified to man a customer service counter. Do you not have customer service training at your company? Do you not have any staff training at your company? Do you know how to run a company? As a business owner myself, it's clear that you don't. I absolutely want to help anyone avoid having such an excruciatingly painful customer service experience with such an incapably-ran joke of a company.

no car given. TWICE
Pros: I dont know how the car rental thing works here but if they offer a online service which allows to book a car like any other ordinary service then it should follow through. You turn up for the car and No car.. Come back at 12pm. No car. Come back at 8pm. No car. Come back next day 8am. No car. Guaranteed 100% car will be there. Bullshit. No guarantee of anything. Wasted two days of this car rental useleas system. And they are prt of thrifty. So thrifty can go screw them selves.. Poor customer service poor everything. Promise the world and dont deliver. Do your selves a favour. Book someplace else or buy a car...

Kayak or Payless did not even book any van or car.

They try to scam you
Pros: Nothing to like.
Cons: I booked a one day car rental for 10$. When I got there, internet was down and the agent told me that there was no way I could rent the car for $10. He said the rental would be much more, and that insurance was required and it was 78$ USD. He was not willing to honor the booking details at all.

Do not rent from here.
Pros: Absolutely nothing.
Cons: There was a language barrier which normally isn't a big deal and is to be expected. But they told me the final contract could be printed in English which was the only reason we decided to go with them. After payment and a $250 USD hold on our card for the car, they said it can't be printed in English. Too late now, had to go through with it. It was a 3 hour ordeal to get the rental as well. After we turned it back in they said the deposit would be back in our account within 2 days. 5 days later and we're still not seeing the money hit our account. Go with a reputable company. Hertz was right down the street and would have been a much better option.

One of the worst place to ever rent
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Three of us with families reserved three vans at plays del Carmen, Mexico to drive to chichen itza. We have confirmed reservation numbers from kayak. When we went three to pick vans the didn't even know that we are coming. He had no vans cars or anything to rent to us. All three families stranded middle of no where with kids. Avoid at all cost. Kayak should ban them.

HORRIBLE
Pros: This was a complete joke. I asked my boyfriend and roomate, while booking my car rental on Kayak if it was legit, and they assured me it was. Well... It wasn't. I arrived to the car rental shop 'Pay Less Car Rental' to a very rude man, telling me he didn't have my reservation. Even though I had a confirmation number. So after digging he tells me the Luxury SUV we rented, they have never had had in stock. And all that was available was a low end small car. Considering I had 5 people waiting on me to take an 2 hour road trip, I had no choice but to take the car. This car should not be on the road, its old, rusty, dented, and dangerous. The seat belts don't work, It is standard and it barley switches gears, the windows leak, the lock on the drivers door barley unlocks, the wipers don't work, the lights are so dim I can't drive at night, and SO much more. This vehicle is an absolute JOKE and should be taken off the road. At this point I am under the impression that Kayak is not even close to legitimate, and it is a waste of time to book something, that doesn't even exist.
Cons: Everything

probably won't book a car on kayak again
Cons: The place did not exist! We wandered around for hours and asked many locals and they said the place does not exist. My husband called Ace for us and they told us where it was supposed to be. We already were on that street and walked back and forth and it wasn't there. When they connected my husband to the "local branch" it took forever for someone to answer and when someone did it wasn't Ace. What a waste of hours of my trip! Finally I had to rent last minute from another company for a really high rate. Absolute nightmare of a car rental experience.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Showed up at 9 and was told there were no carsc and the local branch couldn't cancel the reservation. That we had to call ace directly, which did not route me to anyone helpful. So I couldn't cancel it. Went back 1 hours later, was told I had to wait 3 hours more for a car. By the time I got that car, it was Manual and we didn't know how to drive it. the only automatic they had was $93/ day. They ended up giving me a refund, which they say they couldn't do in the beginning. Also their lot was full of cars!

Additionally, I had made a reservation with a different return location than the pick up. They decided to charge an additional fee for that as well. The whole process was very difficult and uncomfortable. They make you sign too many papers, more than any other company I used in the past, and they they make copies of your credit card, passport and Driver's Licence.

Top tips for renting a car in Playa del Carmen

  • Playa del Carmen, Mexico is a beautiful vacation destination for many people, but it is also a remote place which is easiest explored and discovered on your own four wheels. Rent a car for your time in Playa del Carmen to benefit from the flexibility and freedom it can give you. Also bear in mind that the nearby Theme Park and Amusement Park are best reached by car in less than a quarter of an hour and cannot be reached by public transport easily.
  • Even though International Airport Cozumel is closer to Playa del Carmen in miles, the best choice is to fly into Cancun International Airport and rent a car from their on-site car hire center, which features the most car agencies in the vicinity including Alamo, Thrifty, and Avis. The drive to Playa del Carmen will take about 45 minutes and goes along the coastal 307 road.
  • Driving in Mexico can be daunting for some travelers at first, with safety concerns and the Mexican police who are known to be especially strict with tourists from abroad. However, as long as you adhere to the speed limits, check the car is properly insured, and have all the right documents in place, driving in Playa del Carmen should be no problem; travelers will get to explore the beautiful Tulum Ruins and more within their own time frame and with peace of mind.
  • During the morning hours, traffic mostly keeps flowing in Playa del Carmen, but there is some increased traffic during lunch time, around 11am-1pm, when the Cancún/Mexico 307 can get especially clogged up. In the afternoon between 3 to 6pm, traffic also increases regularly during the weekdays so, if possible, try to avoid going out during these times, or circumvent the traffic via the many little side alleys.
  • Book your rental car in Playa del Carmen at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
