Top tips for hiring a car in Nuevo Leon

  • Nuevo Leon is a state in northeastern Mexico. Travelers coming in will arrive at General Mariano Escobedo International Airport (MTY), located near the capital city of Monterrey. Car rentals in MTY are located at the first level of the terminal building close to the baggage claim area. You will follow the signage leading to the car rental section. Providers like Alamo, Budget, Europcar and Avis offer car rental services. You can also book your car rental in advance to secure availability and get discounted prices on your car.
  • Car rentals in Nuevo Leon give you the convenience of exploring surrounding cities and countries. Nuevo Leon car rentals acquired at MTY airport can travel within Mexico and cross the border into cities like Tijuana, Mexicali, Chihuahua, and Hermosillo. There are no additional charges for travel within Mexico. You can also drive into bordering countries like the United States and Guatemala with rentals from most agencies.
  • When driving car rentals in Nuevo Leon, it’s important to carry your tourist permits or vehicle permits, as police often set checkpoints on highways looking for drivers who don’t abide by road rules. They are usually quick and very efficient, and if you have all the credentials, you will simply be waved on. Also ensure you drive on the right-hand side and always overtake on the left. Seatbelts are mandatory for all occupants of the vehicle, and driving under the influence will involve hefty charges.
  • Driving in Monterrey, the major city in Nuevo Leon, you can experience heavy traffic during peak hours. From around 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., major highways like the Nuevo Leon State Highway 1 Spur (NL 1), Avenida Morones, and Avenida Constitucion tend to experience high traffic congestion. During the months of June and October, the city experiences heavy rainfall that may lead to reduced visibility, slippery roads, and potential flooding. Drivers should exercise caution during this season.
