10.0 Excellent30 Jan 2020
Pros: Easy to find the downtown Cabo office and I preferred it this way, having rented from the airport prior - saved a few days of the car sitting at the resort when we didn't need it. Check it was straightforward. Nice VW Jetta.Cons: Not much. They're good. Waited a few minutes for the car, but no complaints. Easy, cost effective. See you next time.

10.0 Excellent12 Aug 2018
Remember, you MUST buy Mexican liability insurance for USD$23 / day!Pros: Jonathan was helpful and honest. He explained everything clearly and did not pressure upsell me on unneeded insurances. I printed a letter from my RBC Westjet mastercard company that declared that CDW insurance was included. I expected it to be high pressure slaes but the entire process was pleasant and i went back a second time to rent because i knew he'd be good.Cons: When i returned the car at Cabo airport i filled up right beside the Alamo office. The gas station attendant pumped the gas but when i returned it the Alamo rep (not Jonathan - he's in Cabo San Lucas) claimed it was slightly below full. Fortunately he said he'd not charge me.
8.0 Excellent8 Feb 2018
Pros: Convenient location to many of the resorts. Car was ready. and cleanCons: Even though I prechecked in, it took 20-30 minutes to get car, and I was only customer Rate was quoted in $ with high peso exchange rate, bill was charged in pesos so final cost was somewhat more than I was expecting due to exchange rate quoted.
6.8 Good2 Jun 2017
Reserved standard got an intermediate insteadPros: Nice clean carCons: Too small, not what I reserved but that's all they had left. Had to wait an extra 30 minutes to get a car.

Pick upCons: It took me almost 1 hr. to get my car even though I had a reservation. We did paperwork for 30-45 minutes and then I had to wait an additional 15 minutes for them to bring the car to me at their office. Someone could have had the car ready while we did paperwork and the paperwork could have been started in advance. I won't be using National again.

Never got the carPros: NothingCons: I thought I rented the car at SJD, but the office turned out to be 25 miles away in Cabo San Lucas. There were no cars available at SJD and when I called the Cabo office, he said he had no car for me. It ended up taking me over six hours to get to La Paz via cab and bus. I would never rent from Budget again.

Top tips for renting a car in Cabo San Lucas

  • A hire car is by far the best option to explore not only Cabo San Lucas, but also its surrounding area, with its secluded beaches and nearby towns that are well worth a day trip. The whole Tourist Corridor connecting San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas features a vast array of gorgeous beaches, so drive along the 20-mile stretch and make scenic stops as you please with your hire car.
  • All the major car hire companies, including Avis and Alamo, can be found at San Jose Del Cabo International Airport (SJD), which is about a 40-minute drive from Cabo San Lucas. Most car hire desks can be found in the Arrivals Hall area after going through baggage claim and customs, but some will have off-site offices, in which case they’ll provide a shuttle. You’ll need an International Driver’s Permit, as well as Mexican car insurance for the length of your hire contract.
  • Navigating Cabo San Lucas is fairly easy, but remember most traffic signs will be in Spanish only. The city is very popular during spring break and school vacations, which means the roads will be more crowded during those seasons. There are also several speed bumps across town. Most highways in Mexico are tolled, including the one that goes to the airport, so make sure you always have Mexican pesos or American dollars in cash with you.
  • Bumper-to-bumper traffic does happen sometimes in the Los Cabos area, especially during the summer and spring break seasons. Traffic jams in the surrounding Cabo San Lucas roads are also common, so avoid driving into town during the morning rush hour (between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m.) or out of town, particularly on weekends, after 5 p.m. If you’re heading to the airport during these times, plan your journey in advance.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Cabo San Lucas for £21 or less
  • Book your car hire in Cabo San Lucas at least 6 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Cabo San Lucas are around 49% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • For travelers who don’t require much passenger or luggage space, a small, compact car will be enough to drive to the beach and easily park downtown. A convertible is a fun option for when the weather allows you to drive with the top down, and a minivan is recommended if traveling with the whole family.

  • The speed limit in urban areas is usually 60 km/h (37 mph), but it may be lower in certain residential areas, so watch out for the posted signs. Urban throughways have a speed limit of 60-80 km/h (37-50 mph), rural highways observe a limit of 70-90 km/h (43-56 mph), and major highways allow you to drive at a maximum of 110 km/h (68 mph).

  • The average petrol prices in Cabo San Lucas are about MXN 63.53 ($3.14) per gallon. Prices can go as low as MXN 56.78 ($2.80) per gallon, and as high as MXN 71.92 ($3.55) per gallon. Petrolstations in Mexico aren’t self-service, so don’t be surprised when an attendant comes to fill up your tank. Take into consideration that petrol stations tend to be more crowded during spring break season.

  • Street parking is available within the white curb marks, while red curbs mean parking isn’t allowed. Keep an eye out for meters as some parking spaces require payment. There are also several paid parking lots across the city, such as the Paraiso Mall garage. You can also leave your car at some resorts’ parking lots, provided that you intend on using their services, such as the bar.
