Would not honor reservationCons:Despite having reserved, I and several others were told they had no cars. Outrageous.Reviewed 4 Jan. 2017

Worst Place to rent a car in Playa del CarmenPros:Mechanically the car has no problem. They have good localization.Cons:I felt disrespected by Budget on my previous rental at Playa del Carmen, it was the worst customer service I have ever received in a car rental company.... (even been a loyal customer renting with you guys in Canada, US, Brazil and Mexico)... I arrived to pick up my 8am reservation around 8:20am and there was no car, the store was full with more than 5 customers waiting and it took very long, till here is acceptable, however the problem begins here - Budget staff said that my car was cleaning and was going to take 30min more (so, my 8am car was going to be ready 8:50am), time was passing and at certain point, the customer that was behind me in line have got the same car I booked (the attendant said that I said to her to let then pass in my front... this was ridiculous, I would never said to someone pass in my front after waiting for so long), when I realized that they got the same car I went to her and she said that was going to take around 30 minutes more to have my car ready (1 hour waiting), in the end I started to get up said and asked that was ok to don`t clean the car at all, so they offered me a dirty car as I said it was ok (but the passenger seat was soaked) so there was no chance to get that car, and she offered me a downgrade or wait).... I was so up said that they drove me to their garage and I picked one car over there at 10:30am (2 hours latter). There are many lessons on this situation: 1- Training better your staff. 2- If you are totally booked or sold out, don`t offer cars till you have they available. 3- Have two computer terminals available (I left with out my contract printed, just a piece of paper with numbers and noting specific about car or price description). 4- Have a place to clean your cars that it is not in a sand area (concrete floor will help to make the clean more effective). 5- Please buy and use a vacuum (there was no internal cleaning at all). 6- Clean the Clots in between wash cars (they guy was trying hard to clean, however his clot was too dirty and he was only spreading dirty around the car). I think this branch at Playa del Carmen needs some attention in order to deliver at least a standard service.Reviewed 28 Feb. 2017

Pros:Nothing, we arrived and the unhelpful man working at the counter told us that there were no cars available and didn’t know when there would be again. I asked him how I was able to make a reservation if there were no cars available for rent and he simply shrugged his shoulders and told us to go across the street to Hertz. He was clearly not interested in assisting us and didn’t seem to care at all that we booked online in advance. Kayak should not route their customers to this company for booking.Cons:Nothing, we arrived and the unhelpful man working at the counter told us that there were no cars available and didn’t know when there would be again.

Pros:The staff were friendly.Cons:The car wasn't there. There was no rental, the reservation wasn't honored. And even if they had had a car they would have demanded an extra $22/day in mandatory insurance that was never indicated in the rental agreement and would have priced them out no matter what.Reviewed 4 Apr. 2021

Pretty easy process through and throughPros:After booking on line, we made our way to the office. The translation was at times a bit rough, but everything was settled rather quickly. The car was new, clean and ready to go (only had 3/4 of a tank of gas - make note of this). We purchased the Full coverage insurance for safety measures - well advised for many reasons! Over all the experience was a good one.Cons:We purchased the Full coverage insurance - no deductible. When you park in Mexico, door dings are a very, very common occurrence. When we took the car back, the inspector picked them out and I have a feeling if we didn't have full coverage, they would have wanted us to pay for them. See my point regarding full coverage!Reviewed 27 Jan. 2017

Absolute rip offPros:Air conditioned officeCons:They tried to quadruple the price with hidden costs when we went to pick up our car! We cancelled as we couldn’t afford it and ended up with no car.Reviewed 4 Apr. 2018

Pros:When we booked it online we were asked if we wanted insurance. I declined, because I know my auto insurance covers rentals. I was told at the rental place that I needed to buy insurance, that was quite expensive. I was told that if I didn't I needed to put 8,000 dollars down. Because of that we ended up not renting the car. We made a lot of plans around getting that car. We decided to book it online because we believed it would cost a certain price. We were mislead.Reviewed 24 Dec. 2016

Hidden chargesPros:I could drop off at airport.Cons:Radio didn't work, too large hold on credit card with forced insurance purchase. They wanted to hold $1000 on my credit card. No joke!!Reviewed 2 Feb. 2017
