Nothing. We didn’t end up renting the car because when I got to the Hertz counter at the airport they didn’t have my booked rental available. They only had a few Chrysler Minivans available and those fell into a higher rental tier hence they wanted to charge me an additional amount per day for it. They didn’t want to honor the booked price and wanted to charge me more for what was available. Not a good experience.

Kayak allows you to book the reservation outside the hours of operation. Check locally for the actual hours and you will have the best experience.

Hertz in Puerto Escondido will charge you an additional 30% on your rental with all of these tourism and local taxes. Insurance is also way too expensive, avoid this place if you can.

Do not use Europacar in Puerto Escondido. I was forced into taking extra insurance, the original attendant was making sexual overtures and it was extremely uncomfortable. They gave us a sub-standard car which had very little gas in it. Then, upon my return, they tried to charge me 2200 pesos because the seats were slightly wet. It is a town of beaches !!! When I tried to work this out they were rude and short with me. It was a HORRIBLE experience. DO NOT USE THEIR SERVICES. Have extreme caution!

Not one thing.A more clear price for the rental, to include deposit prices and additional required coverage prices. In the end the rental cost 3x as much as indicated on Kayak. Also, I was given a car with multiple existing scratches and dings. Luckily I took a video of all of the damage and was able to get my deposit back. The staff attempted to say that I caused the scratches and thus keep my deposit.

Staff was great, car was clean and worked greatDeceptive pricing online, total cost was double once it was all said and done. Also, the car started with 3/8s of a tank of gas instead of full so returning it with the same amount of gas involved extra work.

Nothing, they add fees and will not accept American cc insurance coverage even though it is not mentioned anywhere.Everything, do not rent from here they will try to scam you for more than double your quoted rate.

The staff was friendly and patient. The car was clean and in good working order. The rental location was close to the airport terminal.I was surprised at the counter by the requirement for a liability insurance letter from my credit card company. Because I didn't have that, Europcar's liability insurance more than doubled the price of the rental I reserved through CarRentals.com. A required credit card deposit of 10% of the value of the car was also an unwelcome surprise. These requirements could have been made more explicit in Europcar's and CarRentals.com's terms when making the reservation. Also, the rental agent spent a lot of time going over every little nick and scratch on the car before leaving the lot and upon returning the car; it felt like they were looking for a reason to charge me even more. This is not appreciated in a region with a lot of bumpy and rocky roads.

A total scamFirefly does not exist in Puerto Escondido. We planned to drive around the area and wound up being stranded at the airport and then stuck in our hotel. Firefly had no explanation and kayak was not reachable. We spent 30 min on the phone trying to sort this out. There was no other way to get a rental and this messed up our whole trip.

Top tips for renting a car at Puerto Escondido Airport

  • For easy, flexible travel plans booking yourself a car hire at Puerto Escondido Airport is a great first step. You can get straight into the city centre in a matter of minutes after you leave the terminal as the airport is located roughly 2.5 miles away. With your own vehicle, you can also visit other nearby cities such as Huatulco and Oaxaca all at your own pace, and you'll be able to stop wherever you want on the way. By booking your car for the airport you can have your own vehicle from the beginning of your trip right to the end, dropping it off just before you leave.
  • Double-check your provider's returns policy as different providers may have different requirements around when and where you return your vehicle. Some may offer one-way hire if you aren't leaving via the airport, this is more common at major providers like Hertz and Europcar. After-hours returns may be available, in these cases, you can return your vehicle and leave the keys and paperwork in a drop-box located outside the service desks. This option is very useful if you have a late-night or early morning flight.
  • Remember that you will also likely need to return your Puerto Escondido Airport car hire with a full tank of fuel. Luckily there are multiple petrol stations near and on the way to the terminal that you can use to refuel just before returning it. The exception to this is if you opt for a prepaid fuel option offered by some companies. This means you pay in advance for the full tank of fuel, usually at a slight discount, and don't need to return it full, this is useful if you think you'll go through at least one tank.
  • The best time to return your vehicle will likely be in the early morning or in the evening. Between 16:00 and 21:00, the terminal tends to be fairly quiet, as well as between 07:00 and 09:00. Tuesday is usually the quietest day. In general, however, simply avoiding the peak hours of 12:00 to 15:00 will likely be enough to avoid long queues.
  • Book your rental car at Puerto Escondido Airport at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
