KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Chetumal

  • A hire car in Chetumal offers more flexibility compared to other methods of transport like a bus, train or taxi. This is due to the fact you can depart when you please, rather than waiting on public transport timetables. For instance, you can drive to Bacalar in about 40min. There aren’t any public transport options for this journey, so the alternative would be to wait for a taxi.
  • Chetumal International Airport (CTM) provides you with a wide range of car hire agencies to pick from, such as Europcar, which can be located quickly in the terminal. For instance, you will find the Europcar office after the luggage reclaim area, in the arrivals hall of the small terminal. You will then need to fill out some documents before being taken to your vehicle in the car park.
  • When you get a hire car in Chetumal, you’ll find that it is a popular resort town in Mexico. Lots of tourists visit to go to the beach and see the local Mayan history. As it’s a busy town, you need to remain vigilant when driving, especially with lots of people crossing the road at points that are not designated for pedestrians. There are also lots of mopeds and motorcycles in this region, so you need to make sure you regularly check your mirrors when turning and when on roundabouts.
  • When you get a hire car in Chetumal, you’ll see that there is a lot of traffic, especially during rush hour. This tends to be from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. To avoid the roads when they’re at their busiest, it’s advised you stay clear of them during these times. One of the roads that can get particularly busy is Avenue Insurgentes, which goes through the centre of the city. If you can complete your route without taking this road, then it’s recommended you do so.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Chetumal?

    The city is popular with holidaymakers and locals, so the roads can be very busy. It’s therefore advised that you choose a compact car, which will make navigating busy roads and parking easier. If you want to take a trip into the Mexican countryside, to an area like Central Flores, then you will probably want a car that is better suited to (and allowed to travel on) off-road terrain. For instance, an SUV is a good choice as it provides 4x4 capabilities, which is good for uneven and steep terrain; just check with your agency whether this type of activity is permitted.

  • What’s the speed limit in Chetumal?

    When you’re driving in Mexico, you need to stay within the speed limits or you may receive a fine or be at an increased risk of accidents. When you are on the motorway, the speed limit is usually 100-120 km/h. This differs depending on which road you’re on, so it’s important that you adhere to the signs. When you’re on rural roads which are not motorways, the speed limit is 90 km/h, whereas in Chetumal and other urban areas, the maximum speed is 30-70 km/h, depending on how built up the area is.

  • Where are the best places to park in Chetumal?

    There are lots of parking places you can park your Chetumal hire car. You can park your vehicle at Estacionamiento Independencia, which is located close by to the Palacio de Justicia, on Avenue Independencia. This costs about Mex$ 30 (A$ 2.15) for the whole day. There is also a free parking area on the seafront called Playa Artificial 1, which offers great access to the beach. If you want to visit some of the top sites in the area, like Chetumal Zoo, you can typically park at Estacionamiento Zoologico for free as well.

5.2 Fair

Feb 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

2018 Kia was a good car overall and promoted as much better than an older Volkswagon model.

Cons:

CarsRental.com sold us prepaid insurance online for about $100 and then the local National office would not honor the insurance and charged over $50 per day for full coverage in Mexico, which we were forced to buy out of fear of noncoverage. Final charge was three times the anticipated amount for 5 days. Plus, lack of English speaking staff caused excessive mutual frustration and time in the office as well as having to call a cell phone to get staff into the office upon our return to Chetumal. We will now need to figure out how to get a refund for double insurance coverage through our credit card company. Next trip we will not buy coverage online and scour our personal insurance and credit card companies for rental car coverage.

Cons:

When presented my credit card with collision coverage, Europcar staff told me that to make it valid I needed to have a letter of proof of insurance signed/stamped by some kind of Mexican authority.... really?? How they expect foreigners to get that?? At the end I payed double of my quote for all this tricks and hidden fees

5.6 Fair

Nov 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Chetumal is a small airport and the pick up drop off is convenient and easy.

Cons:

Be aware of insurance requirements in Mexico. If you have a credit card that provides rental car insurance they will require a letter for confirmation from credit card company. If you do not have a letter they will not rent you the car without purchasing insurance. The cost of insurance depends on the value of the car and is minimum $200 USD. They do not indicate that in the listing or the general terms. You have to go deep into the T&C to find that.

Me obligaron a comprar otro seguro extra de lo ya contratado para poder tener acceso al auto. El seguro extra fue mas caro que la propia renta del auto.

I booked my car rental and when I showed up to the airport they said no cars were available. The guy at the airport said not to book with third parties as they don’t have their car inventories. I was not able to get a refund since kayak has no refund policy. I was scammed. Do not book with kayak. I had file a claim with my bank.

I wasn't able to rent the car because they have a stupid policy that having a dirving license is not good enough. It has to be at least 1 year old.

The “optional” additional insurance was not optional. I had to purchase their insurance which turned out to be almost double of what I had pre-paid for the rental and basic insurance. So the great deal offered was not so great after all. It turned out to be almost triple the cost

They didn´t respect the rate neither the vehicle we reserved, finally we had to take what they have and small car for 6 persons instead of a SUV, the small car was vey dirty... didnt respect the rate price of our reservation an we had to pay more than twice the original price. Finally we returned the car one day after the rental and we went to NATIONAL when we get a better car a SUV with lower price and excellent service. Many people were suffering the same that we suffered with DOLLAR.... Please avoid to use/reserve with this guys, the Manager in Duty (a women) is more concerned on get more money from customer that provide a better service.
