KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in León

  • Renting a car during your stay in Leon City in Guanajuato can be a great first move to explore different places within and outside the city. From car rentals in Leon, you can get a car that can smoothly enable you to explore Guanajuato in less time than other transportation options.

You can as well explore other cities like Irapuato easily with a car.
  • You must provide your rental company with a few documents to get cheap car rentals in León. Bring a driver's license that has been used for a minimum of 12 months. Also, you must show an international driving permit if your driver's license is not written in the Latin alphabet. Ensure your credit card has sufficient credit to cover the overall cost of your automobile rental, i.e, security deposit, insurance, and additional items you might hire from the agency. Finally, if you reserve a car online, you must show the confirmation voucher the agency will send to your email. You might also need to present other papers, such as your passport and ID card.
  • With Car rentals in Leon, you can get a car that can take you to Leon Airport, which is approximately 16 miles. The airport has a car rental center that offers a variety of vehicles.

  • Renters who want to cross the Mexican-US border with cheap car rentals in León must inform the rental staff first to receive a letter of authorization and proof of automobile insurance. You must carry proof of citizenship, a valid Mexican driver’s license, and the rental agreement form. The few rental companies that allow you to drive into other countries like Guatemala will need you to sign additional paperwork and provide special permission – they will most likely limit the mileage you can cover in Guatemala. You must carry a passport or international visa, an original birth certificate, and an international driving permit.
  • Leon city, like many other cities, experiences challenges, especially on the roads, due to its high population visible on the streets. With narrow streets in the city, it may be challenging to drive through, especially if you are new. With the high number of pedestrians on the roads, you need to be extremely careful as you watch out for them, with some crossing the road unaware of approaching cars.

Some outlets like Porsche Destination Charging are within hotels (Hotel GlowPoint, next to Starbucks Puerta Bajio),
  • Leon City, being a big city, has many vehicles on the highways. The many cars on the road sometimes lead to traffic congestion that may slow the movement of the cars. On many occasions, driving during rush hours, generally in the evening, is the main reason you end up in traffic jams. Rush hours are known to have many cars as people rush to get home from work. The city's main highways are usually full of cars during these times. If you are in a hurry, you must avoid the main roads such as Section 2 to reach your destination in time.

The staff at the car lot were helpful. Car was clean and great.

Cons:

Too many hidden fees, it cost double the price once you got there, they make you get an insurance, they make leave a insane amount of deposit, like between 2000 US dollars to 10k US dollars. So if ur renting a car in Mexico, make sure you know u will have to buy a rental insurance, the price quoted is not the price you will pay, and be ready to leave a big deposit, make sure you have 10k cleared on your credit card.

The staff were helpful and the rental vehicle was fine, a lot of miles on the car, but it drove well. My only surprise was the cost. I was quoted $187 for 4 days rental, but in the end, it cost over $330 with a lot of extra charges not included in the quoted price, including mandatory insurance of $20 per day and all sorts of taxes and fees. I would have preferred they included all of the expenses up front so I wouldn't have gotten sticker shock. El personal era amable y el vehiculo bien, llevaba muchas millas de uso, pero se conducia bien. Mi unica decepcion fue el coste. Me dieron un precio de 187 USD por 4 dias de alquilar, pero al final pague mas de 330 USD gracias a tarifas, impuestos y seguro de auto supuestamente obligatorio. Me hubiera preferido que me indicaran el precio total al principio para ahorrarme el susto.

When we arrived late evening in Leon and went to the Europcar counter, our "reservation" didn't mean anything. The people in front of us were dealing with the same issue - there was one car, two of us with reservations, and both of us had a price quoted that was DOUBLE what our reservation said. (they added in insurance, a different location drop off fee and a commission, even though none of that was mentioned in our reservation). We ended up walking away and taking cabs for the week. DO NOT RENT FROM EUROPCAR and don't think your reservation means anything.

Ended up not renting the vehicle. When we went to the counter, we were told the insurance (full coverage) Kayak/Expedia included in the fee was not valid, and a separate fee was required to cover driving in Mexico. This added significantly to the cost, almost doubling it. They suggested we rent the car and get our money back from Kayak/Expedia. We declined to rent the car. Not sure where the issue is, and which side is right or wrong. We decided to take Uber for all transportation.

I usually go with Hertz because is a well known company and it gives me security. Unfortunately, this time Hertz was a disappointment the car that I rented was in an unsafe state. The tires where in such a bad condition that he refused to take the car. The other car they gave him had no cap in one tire. I just want to say that who ever is in charge anywhere they should take into consideration the safety and have all there cars well maintained.

Smaller than what I had chosen, I reserved ahead of time and I was under the assumption based on my confirmation that I would be getting a Dodge Avenger or something as big but when I got there the lady told me all cars were rented already and had to get a small car. The insurance was crazy high. The car itself to rent was only about $40 for the week but yhe insurance was over $400 and to only cover 20% if we do get in an accident. Total ripoff. Will never rent from thrifty again.
