Foreigner ripoffPros:People were niceCons:Doesn't matter if you booked online, they will go through the whole process from scratch and add all kinds of insurances so you end up paying way more than the online quote. Cars are old and stinky.Reviewed 6 Jan. 2017

a bustCons:I tried to find out what the mandatory insurance would cost. No one at Budget could/would tell me. Our flight was delayed 2 hrs and when we got to Cancun airport the person told us that he was out of our mid-size car and that we would have to take this tiny car for the same price that we had already paid. Or we could upgrade to a larger car and pay considerably more. Since we couldn't fit into the tiny car we chose the larger car, a Nissan Versa. A nice car, but to me that is an intermediate car. In fact it's smaller than an intermediate car. So we got an acceptable car, but paid twice the price plus the insurance add-on. If a fee is more than 100% of the cost, shouldn't that be disclosed? Other than that everything was fine.Reviewed 1 Jan. 2019

Cons:They cancel my reservation because my flight was delay, I called the company to let them now an they said I had to do a new reservation. I asked him to to Wait for me and he said i should call him when I arrived and he will take care of me. I call when I arrived t He told me he was sending somebody for me and I had to wait 2.5 hours in the airport with my family in the street, they never showed up. Horrible service, very disappointed.Reviewed 5 Jan. 2021

No cars despite a reservation months in advance.Cons:Arrived at the rental car desk only to be told that there were no cars, despite making a reservation months in advance. Was offered an SUV for significantly more per day. Others waiting in line experienced exactly the same thing. This is clearly a scam to take cheap reservations and oversell cars so that they can upsell a considerably more expensive model. I also observed another customer bribe the desk agent with cash to get a car. That seemed to work. Would not recommend Budget unless you're prepared to bribe the desk person with cash. FYI This was in the Cancun airport.Reviewed 11 Jan. 2017

OkayPros:Car was clean and had no mechanical issues - was the type of car we asked for. The shuttle driver was prompt and friendly.Cons:Went to the counter in the terminal and the woman was upset that my flight was delayed and that I didn't call - made it sound like I wouldn't get a car anymore. The cost was also a LOT higher with insurance- like 6x as much. There were other options for less insurance but then you have to be willing to put a down payment of >$1000 dollars down. We got a new car (like, no license plate yet, just tags taped in the window) which was nice there were no mechanical issues but it made us a huge target in Mexico. The line inside the actual rental place was long and literally every customer was pissed about something which made it a really unpleasant experience.Reviewed 27 Dec. 2016

Designed to take advantage of travelersCons:Hate doing this but this location is designed specifically to rip off tourist. Steer very clear and find a car rental company that is more transparent from the get-go. If you go here with a "reservation" you will find yourself: Tired from a long day of travel and possibly too weak to fight them. You will be on their turf without a reservation somewhere else and in fear that you will not be able to get a car somewhere else. And you may not want to put your family through the additional time needed to find an alternative. The latter is what happened to me. I was taking my wife to Akumal, it was late and while I can personally fight someone on principal, I looked over at my very tired wife and did not want to have her put through it all. Buyer beware. This place is specifically designed to take advantage of you.Reviewed 26 Dec. 2016

Scam AlertPros:There was indeed a reserved car for me when I arrived.Cons:When I arrived and told them my credit card would cover the insurance, they said they would have to put a $10,000 hold on my credit card. That was fine as I have a limit of 4 times that. They said the approval wouldn't go through. I told them to try again and they said it wouldn't. When I tried to call Citibank the call wouldn't go through although I had service specifically for Mexico. So in order to get the car and on my merry way - I had to pay $18 per day insurance, 16% tax on that amount and my $62 car became $192. And suddenly they could put a $1500 hold on my card. We checked the car and took pictures of all the existing damage and upon return, they tried to tell me there was some new damage. I argued vehemently and finally was told - ok - we'll take care of you. I am sure they expected a tip - but my tip is "don't rent from Budget at the Cancun airport".Reviewed 18 Jan. 2017

Way more moneh than we were quotedPros:I was glad it was possible to rent a car in Mexico. The car was clean and a familiar make and model, so driving wasn’t hard.Cons:We were quoted $15 when I made the reservation. When we went to pick up the car, we were told that was the price we would pay IF we bought $2,000 in insurance coverage. We bought the minimum we could and the rental alone came out to $130 for 4 days and a $200 hold for insurance. I feel like this needed to be indicated up front when making the reservation so we could have been prepared. Since we were renting in Mexico, we were concerned we were being shook-down for money. Knowing up-front all the details and potential costs would allow us to better plan our trip expenses. Also, it would have been nice to have been able to make an up-front payment online through Kayak or Budget’s websites and avoided handing over our credit card in a foreign country.Reviewed 15 May 2018

Pros:The staff was friendly.Cons:The car was terrible. It was completely beat up with significant dents on every panel. The right side mirror did not work. The battery connection was loose and the car didn’t start on multiple occasions. The tires had a slow leak. The car price as quoted should include the mandatory cost of insurance for non Mexicans and not just say it’s extra.Reviewed 10 Apr. 2021
