Top tips for renting a car in Tijuana

  • Just along the United States-Mexico border, Tijuana is the perfect place to explore with a rental car. Ditch the unreliable public transportation and drive around the city at your own pace. Not only that, you can also head south along the Baja California peninsula for some stunning views, including a chance to see the whales in Guerrero Negro.
  • You’ll find that most of the major rental car agencies operate at Tijuana International Airport (TIJ), also known as General Abelardo L. Rodríguez, including Hertz and Enterprise. The car rental desks are situated in the Arrivals Hall of the airport’s terminal. You’ll need an International Driving Permit to rent a car in Mexico, as well as insurance.
  • While Tijuana isn’t hard to navigate, a GPS always comes in handy. Because of its warm temperatures, the city sees a rise in tourism in April as well as in August, so beware that Tijuana will be more crowded during those seasons. Avenida Revolucion is the main avenue, so avoid driving there if you want to skip the crowds, and simply explore the area on foot instead.
  • Rush hour traffic in Tijuana is heavily influenced by its location near the border. If you want to cross into, or out of, the United States, avoid Friday and Sunday evenings as you will likely encounter heavy traffic jams. Evening rush hour traffic, starting from 5 p.m., can result in heavy congestion along the 5 and 805.

  • Book your rental car in Tijuana at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

If you need to go to the gas station, avoid going during evening rush hour as you will likely get stuck in big lines.

  • The best option is to find accommodation that can provide parking, as street parking in the city center can be challenging, and it is usually time-restricted. You can park at the border cross parking lot, with rates starting at $8 per 8 hours. You can also park at the airport for long-term stays, with rates ranging between $12 and $16 per day.
