    Driving in Mexico: Car Rental Tips and Information

     

    Driving Overview | Insurance Information | Rental Restrictions

    Driving Overview

     

    Car Rental Requirements

    In order to rent a car in Mexico, you must be at least 21 years old and have held your license for a minimum of two years (restrictions may vary upon the car rental category and supplier). Drivers under 25 may incur a young driver surcharge while a few suppliers harbor a maximum age limit of 75 on select vehicles. An international driver's license is recommended, but not required.

     

    Speed Limits

    Mexican speed limits are detailed below:
    Urban Roads: 19 or 25mph
    Open Roads and Highways: 62-68mph
    Rural Roads: 43mph

     

    Rules of the Road

    In Mexico, traffic travels on the right hand side of the road. In order to reduce pollution, there are restrictions on travel into Mexico City in rental vehicles. Travelers should also avoid driving at night whenever possible, as roads are dimly lit.

     

    Fuel

    Although gas stations are available in abundance along the highway and in major cities, they become scarcer as you travel into Mexico's rural regions.

     

    Tolls

    Mexico harbors numerous toll-highways. Fees are generally low and vary in accordance to the route and how long the stretch of road continues until the next major town or turn off.

     

    Parking

    Parking is extremely limited throughout Mexico. It is best for travelers to avoid parking on poorly lit streets and utilize designated parking spaces near hotels, business and other public areas to avoid being blocked in.

     

    Insurance Information

    General Information

    All of Auto Europe's car rental rates include fire insurance and third party liability insurance. In Mexico, our rates also include collision and theft coverage. The specific insurance details are printed on your confirmation voucher for your convenience. Below are Mexico's guidelines for car rentals and insurance.

    Required Coverage

    In Mexico, Auto Europe's rates include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), theft protection, third party liability (coverage on people or property outside of the rental vehicle), and fire insurance. It is important to know that our rates sometimes include a deductible, or the amount of money the client is responsible for should an accident occur. A super CDW is often offered locally to help lower this amount or eliminate it completely.

     

    Optional Coverage

    Other insurance options available with select suppliers are Personal Effects Protection and Personal Accident Insurance. The former refers to insuring the client's belongings inside the car, while the latter covers medical expenses for injuries to individuals inside the rental car. You may also request tire and windshield coverage locally for an additional charge.

     

    Rental Restrictions

     

    General information

    Due to insurance regulations, there are strict restrictions on certain rental car categories and on travel into certain countries. Please disclose all desired countries of travel during the initial booking process to ensure that you are provided with the appropriate car rental class. Contact an Auto Europe reservation specialist toll-free at 1-888-223-5555 to arrange your rental car in Mexico!

     

    Restricted Countries

    Rental vehicles in Mexico are not allowed out of the country. However, select suppliers may authorize travel into the United States with advanced notice. Travel into the US may require additional fees, or additional insurances depending on the individual supplier.

     

    One-Way Car Rentals in Mexico

    Domestic one-way car rentals are available in Mexico, and refer to picking a rental car up in one location and dropping it off at another location in the same country. Availability for domestic one-way car rentals is dependent on the supplier, the associated car category, and the length of the rental. Additional fees may apply and International one way car rentals are generally not permitted in Mexico.
