Driver's License in Mexico

To rent a car in Mexico, most car rental companies require a full driver's license held for a minimum of 2 years with no major endorsements.


If your domestic driver's license is not in English (Arabic, Japanese, Cyrillic etc), an International Driving Permit (IDP/IDL) or an official translation in English is required when you drive in Mexico.


Please note that an International Driving Permit (often referred to as an International Driver's License) does not replace the requirement for a regular driver's license. And you must carry your current overseas driver’s license, IDP or translation with you all the time when driving in Mexico.


*Attention! Some car rental companies would have different requirements. Please check Terms and Conditions during the booking process.

8Very Good

Reservé un vehículo Full Size (el modelo de referencia era un Passat) pero no lo tenían disponible en la sucursal. Me dieron, en cambio, un Cavalier, considerablemente más austero, pequeño y limitado con respecto a lo que originalmente reservé.

6.7La peor del mundo

Me rentaron un carro con falla, me dejo tirado en la carretera y si asistencia vial tardo más de 5 horas para auxiliarme y a final del día me quieren cobrar a mi las averías del carro. No cumple con el seguro que además de estar más caro que en otras compañías otras compañías si te reembolsan el pago del seguro y está no. Además de exponer mi vida dejándome varado en la carretera me dan un vehículo que no revisaron mecánicamente solo estetica y eso casi hace que tenga un accidente

El precio me parece elevado para un auto como el que solicite y el tramite del seguro , no me agrado en lo absoluto, no me siento confiado en manejar seguros separados, costos separados, cobertura dispersa

9.7Cheaper than a bottle of water, for 2 days (incl. damage).

Someone reversed into me, and the dent/scrape across two doors only ended up costing £40 to repair (which I claimed back on Amex ins.) but Hertz took 2 months to provide the damage invoice, so if I hadn't been able to stop back at the airport office again a couple of weeks after returning the car, it might have been too late to claim.

5.7VERY BAD

The car they wanted to give me (Aveo) was smaller that the one I rented. Had to pay more for a bigger more (Kia Forte). They didn't recognize the insurance I bought from easyrentacar (AXA) ; tried to call the phone number AXA gives for this kind of situation but didn't get any answer ; so I had to pay 1,100$ US for their own one (third party liability). They tried to screw me at the drop off pretending damages to the car that were already there and when I argued strongly they backed off (the list of the pre-existing damages to the car they gave me at the pick up was very long and included the damage they pretended I was responsible for !). But then they said I had to pay for another damage, this time to the first car I brought back the day after the pick up because the passenger door lock wouldn't let the key in so it was impossible to lock the car. They tried to make me pay 800 US$ plus taxes for this even though they didn't say anything about that when I brought the car back six weeks before. I was in a hurry, because this process took time and we were afraid of missing our plane. So I said ok I'll pay but give me a copy of the repairs that were done for my insurance. But then they admit that they had not repair the lock of the car, six weeks later ! I gave them shit (politely) and they again backed off. Frankly, It was a clear extorsion attenmpt. I know Mexico well and know that there is corruption everywhere. But I thought that with a renowned compay like Europcar I would be safe from that kind of tactics. I was wrong.

9.3Good car, good service, insurance issues

We experienced very good service and the car was in excellent condition. However, we were surprised to learn that since we didn't purchase insurance in Mexico (our US insurance covered international) we had to put a deposit of $8,000 down on our credit card in case we didn't return the car. Luckily we had a high enough credit limit to do this and they never actually charged our card.

Fue el único lugar que di la targeta y a los pocos días había un intento de uso fraudulento para sacar USD (estaba en Mexico). 100% que hubo un intento de clonaje de la targeta. Mal uso dadas privadas por parte de algun trabajador o zero confianza en la protección y privacidad de los datos de los clientes.

8.7Very unsatisfactory with the Hertz experience

We were pressured into additional insurance even after showing we had comp and collision, as well as insurance through my credit card company. They would not let us have a vehicle without singing on for more liability insurance. A complete shakedown. Very unsatisfied.

7Good experience but much unclarity when it comes to insurance policies (Hertz vs EasyRentCars)

Overall I think that the experience was okay but I was shocked that they were not aware of the extra-insurace we paid for with EasyRentCars. Therefore they tried to convince us to pay extra money to get an insurance that we have already. It’s probably also due to the lack of communication or clarity between EasyRentCars and Hertz

4.3Hertz Guadalajara not very organized and the cars are not in a good shape

The process to get and return the vehicle is terrible, they try to force you get additional insurance even if you already have one. The car was very dirty and in terrible condition, scratches and dents everywhere and a larger hit in the front bumper. The inside wasn't any better, a broken handle to open the trunk, stained and dusty seats, I even had to clean the inside of the windshield because I couldn't see with the sunlight reflecting on the dirty windshield. The car return was also a problem, first to find the right place because Hertz is not with the other car rental companies and I didn't see any sign that showed the correct path, when you get there you have to wait until their personnel goes to your car and verifies the gas level, condition of the car and keys which took a little more than 10 minutes, and after that you have to head into the office, make another line and close your contract, another 15 minutes. In general, not a good experience

6.3Trying to have you pay insurance coverage twice - Rest was OK.

Initially wanted to charge a "safety deposit" of 12,000 USD on our American Express Platinum card. No kidding. Then want to charge us $140 extra for LIA coverage. Lists displayed publicly were showing a different price (lol). Agent told us listings were outdated just to have us pay more. We found the listings were perfectly valid, so he made up another excuse (lol). After showing detailed coverage included with the card and losing almost one hour, agent "mysteriously" discovered an insurance package for half the price (he entered manually a 60% discount... which means he knew exactly what he was doing). Borderline scammy. Drop off went super well with a nice lady but pickup left a bitter taste.

el único problema que tuvimos fue que cuando en Hertz nos ofrecieron seguros adicionales, al darnos el precio no especificaron que era por día y nosotros pensamos que era el precio para el total de la reserva. Por lo que, una vez firmado el contrato y darnos cuenta del asunto, tuvimos que volver a la sucursal de Hertz a cancelarlo porque era un precio muy alto. Además, todos los teléfonos de atención al cliente que tienen terminan derivándote a la web y no puedes hablar con nadie...
