Super hard to find. When we did find it, they told us that they had received our reservation but had no cars. They said they didn’t alert me because I hadn’t left my cell phone, but I had. Extremely disappointing.

Pros:

The staff did not have a car for me and then all of the sudden they found a car that was below what i paid for and smelled pretty bad.

Cons:

The staff did not have a car for me and then all of the sudden they found a car that was below what i paid for and smelled pretty bad. I was quoted 30$ for 9 days which seemed really low but then that was the cost was the coat for only 1 day. I went to drop off the can at the exact time i had planned and there was no one at the office. I called they number on the paperwork and the person who answered did not speak any english and told me in spanish to meet him at the aitport where they dont have an office or desk. He was 15 minites late and luckily my flight was delayed so everything worked out. DONT USE GREEN MOTION IN ZIHUATANEJO

8.0 Very good

Jul. 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff was very friendly and flexible on pickup and drop off times.

Cons:

We chose this group because of listed price. What was buried in the fine print was a requirement to purchase liability insurance that costed more than the rental itself. It was misleading to show the base price only—we would have gone with a different group had we known. If this is standard, then the listing should show that additional insurance fees may apply, and point the consumer directly to the added costs. It was misleading to be so obscure and hidden.

The cost of the rental ended up being twice what we were quoted through Kayak because of a mandatory insurance charge. Upon return they charged us an additional $40 for them to vacuum sand from the cars floor. Both pick up and return were painfully slow like the staff had never been through the process before. I would never recommend this to anyone. You failed us Kayak.

KAYAK

Cons:

The rate is very low but you have to insure your car trough them! In order not to take their insurance, which cost 10X the rent of the car, is to bring a letter signed by Credit Card company taking care of the insurance (not the Credt Card contract - a specific letter) & THEN they will charge the total price of the car until is return. It's very sad that they promote this car company - KAYAK please stop promoting them!

Cons:

They Clip you for the insurance and that makes renting three times more costly then the price per day which is quoted.

Hertz reserved a luxury car for me, upon arrival they did not have a luxury car available, They only had a compact car and tried to charge me the same as a luxury car. Additionally hertz was charging me $600 additional US dollars for a total of $1,100 for a 1 week rental. I went to save u car for a total of $400 per week rental for a VW Vento including full insurance. Plus Herrz representative was rude & unprofessional. Will never consider Hertz ever again.

Everything with the car rental was great. No lines. We arrived at airport and walked to car rental kiosk.

Cons:

If you are limited in speaking it may be diffcult.I am a Spanish speaker so it is fine. Do not buy their insurance if your credit card covers you out of the country. You will need to buy liability insurance.
