Pros: yesCons: they make you buy insurance. it cost more than the rental
10.0 Excellent25 Jan 2020
Cons: It was a worry free experience. Got the car and dropped it off with no worry. Just be aware of the time and day of the experience. I went on a slow week and there was just one person doing all so I had to wait a bit . I understand this..
2.0 Mediocre6 Jul 2019
Cons: The price I was quoted from the kayak wasn’t honored and I was charged four times the price when picking up the car.
2.4 Mediocre5 Feb 2019
Pros: The person I dealt with at the counter was friendly and helpful. It's Europcar's policies that are the problem.Cons: I reserved a car months in advance at a good price. However, Europcar would not honour that price saying that CDW was compulsory. The first offer was $50 US per day which would have meant the total would be 4 times what I reserved. This input box isn't big enough to express my disgust.
2.0 Mediocre3 Apr 2018
Europcar was a shell - they did not deliver - avoid in Oaxaca, MexicoCons: Europcar's car was not ready in Oaxaca, Mexico. They promised a car, but it did not show up. They then found a car from another agency that wound up being more expensive, a huge hassle to get, and had issues. I will never trust Europcar again.
2.0 Mediocre20 Dec 2017
scamPros: The real rate was 10 times what was quoted due to insurance. I've travelled to a lot of places and my credit card has always been accepted for insurance purposes. Made me not trust them.
8.0 Excellent16 Nov 2017
Pros: Everything went well customer services was helpful, the car was good I do, being the first time I use their services.Cons: One think I don't like is the time it's taking a lot of time to refound the co-pay /insurance that's charge on your credit card. Is that normal.
5.6 Okay8 Nov 2017
Pros: The car was brand new, compact, and perfect for the Mexican roads.Cons: The online booking price was very misleading. When we landed we were quoted a total rental price of over seven times our online booking price, once the mandatory Mexican insurance had been factored in. We balked at this and then the operator miraculously adjusted the price to only three times our online rental price, making the whole transaction feel arbitrary and opportunistic. When returning the car (Nov. 7, 2017), there were union blockades of all major highways into and out of Oaxaca (https://www.garda.com/crisis24/news-alerts/77446/mexico-major-protest-in-oaxaca-november-7) and gas stations along the road to the airport were closed or inaccessible. This made it impossible to refill our tank, while the 15 minute drive from town to the airport took almost two hours, and we made it to the airport only half an hour before our scheduled flight. Not only were Europcar staff completely unsympathetic, but they insisted on charging us a refuelling price five times higher than the normal fuel price. When I protested and, given the circumstances, offered to pay the gas station price, the staff suggested the price would change if I paid in cash, once again leading to feelings of opportunism. We paid the full quoted refuelling price using credit card and will take up this whole situation with Europcar.
2.0 Mediocre6 Jun 2017
SuckedPros: NothingCons: The staff was so rude, I didn't rent the car, cuz the dude was so stupid, and careless

Pros: this place is a scam. the cost was doubleCons: see above
2.0 Mediocre6 Jan 2021
Pros: NothingCons: We showed up day before to confirm and we’re told to come back next day. Arrived on time following day and were simply told, “there aren’t any cars to rent. Goodbye.”
4.4 Okay11 Nov 2020
Pros: The car ran.Cons: They gave us a different car than asked and charged us $490 instead of $260. I’d like to dispute this.
2.0 Mediocre2 Aug 2019
Pros: Friendly, but not helpful.Cons: When we arrived to Alamo to pick up our reserves car, they informed us that they had no vehicles. Nor did any other Alamos in the city. Even thought they had my email and phone number, no attempt was made to tell me that there were no vehicles. We would have made other plans, but by then it ws 2 lat
2.0 Mediocre25 Jul 2019
Pros: We missed our connecting flight from Mexico City to Oaxaca where we were suppose to pick up our car. We called that were going to be 6 hours late picking up car. Only to get there and the staff not being able hang on to a car for us. Never ended get car, none available for us.Cons: Maybe allowed the extended pick up time do to unforeseen circumstances. Offer options.
5.6 Okay11 May 2019
Cons: There was no one at the drop off location and no instructions of what to do in that situation. Alamo customer service was not helpful and kept me on hold for 20 minutes before I hung up. We had to catch a flight so just ended up parking in a lot and leaving the keys at the counter.
2.0 Mediocre19 Apr 2019
Cons: We went to pick up our rental. Not only did they not have a car for us but the staff were not helpful at all. NO VEHICLE WAS RENTED.
7.2 Good30 Dec 2018
Pros: Car was nice, drove well.Cons: Insurance coverages more than doubled the initial price
4.4 Okay24 Sep 2017
Get what you pay forPros: The price was the best that we found. It is located right inside the Oaxaca airport.Cons: They give a full press about insurance. I have automotive insurance personally as well as special rental coverage that comes with my credit card. But they pressed to a point that we almost went to the booth next door. When we finally agreed that we would take the responsibility for the car they tried to insist that they would keep the entire worth of the car as a hold on our credit card. We ended up talking them down but they still put a hold on the card that was more than what we agreed upon. At the end of the day, we were only charged the initial amount that was advertised and agreed upon that brought us to the company. So, it worked out. But it felt like we had to be on guard throughout the entire experience.

2.0 Mediocre30 Nov 2020
Pros: Staff was very rude and does not care about anything but money, I am a member of the U.S. armed forces and I was born in Oaxaca and this place does not represent Hertz at all. I’ve had better experience in other Hertz locations but this one only cares about money and how to weasel more out of you. I received a really scratched vehicle and was charged more than what I originally booked it for and was forced to sign a contract because I had no other choice since I had an ill family member.Cons: I just honestly wish they had clear pictures with the customers they work with and not try and weasel a bigger a higher price for cars that in the U.S.A. You would get for 40$ a day and there they are asking 100$ a day
4.4 Okay18 Feb 2020
Pros: Good sized carCons: Price online did not reflect actual price of rental car. Poor signage and instruction for car return.
2.8 Mediocre3 Jan 2020
Pros: The staff told me "the wheels are broken" on the car I reserved and forced me to pay an additional 100.00$ US upsale on a larger vehicle.Cons: It would be nice to have available the car and price seen on Kayak. Hertz at this location should not be able to use online reservation services, it seems they are using them as a bottleneck to force travelers to pay premium prices
2.0 Mediocre8 May 2018
Bad they did not treated me wellPros: NoneCons: Too much money they charged me
2.0 Mediocre18 Apr 2018
WARNINGCons: The roads are death traps, third world country roads at its finest. Animals on the road to Puerto escondido from Oaxaca city, it was a terrifying experience, wouldn't recommend it to no one. PLEASE do not drive these roads, no reception, ambulance, or any kind of proper medical attention in case of an emergency. You have been warned.
2.0 Mediocre10 Apr 2018
There was no car available. Was this a scam?Pros: NothingCons: The total lack of car availability was extremely inconvenient. The very low price of the daily rental should have been a tip-off to me that it was not a real deal. I cannot really fault Hertz for this, I believe Kayak has no idea about doing business in Mexico.
2.0 Mediocre3 Jan 2018
They gave my reservation awayPros: Nothing as I was not able to rent a car through Hertz... since it is the high tourist season they gave my reserved car away to someone else because I arrived 10 mins after the time i said I would arriveCons: Everything.. they gave my car away and there were no others to rent since it is the high season
2.0 Mediocre29 Dec 2017
ExperienceCons: Hertz was unable to respect my reservations because I was late due to my flight being delayed by a half hour. Hertz should have found another accommodation for my family of 5, instead they said I would have to take a car that was 4 times more expensive than the initial quote.
2.0 Mediocre2 May 2017
Cons: When I arrived I was told they had no more cars. Besides this, the man working at the desk was rude and mocking.
6.8 Good20 Mar 2017
Cons: Pick up was great! Drop off was more difficult. We had let the agent know we needed to drop off the car between 6 and 6:30AM. He gave us instructions to park in front of the airport. When we got to the airport there was no agent. We approached a number of people to assist us, nobody knew quite what to do. We had to check in for our flight, so were unable to sit with the car. The agent arrived just before the car was towed (thank goodness!). But everybody was very nice! The 7:30 flight to Houston is a regularly scheduled flight from that airport. It would be helpful to have the desk staffed earlier than 7:00.

Pros: Unfortunately, checked in early to receive a car! There were no cars to be had.... this was around 830am, told me she should receive one by 5pm in the evening! That did not work as were driving 5 hrs away to the beaches! Will not rent from this company again! Very disappointed....Cons: Offer the car that is promised to the guest!
2.0 Mediocre30 May 2021
Pros: Despite our many problems (see below), the staff were relatively friendly and helpful. (For example, the manager provided us with his personal cell number when we called to express our concern that the engine light had gone on and we were afraid of breaking down on a remote road somewhere.)Cons: Our problems were many. Kayak linked us to carrentals.com which announced on their website that the rental price included the liability insurance required by the Mexican government. However, there was nothing mentioning this on the confirmation documents that we received and Economy Rentacar told us that we needed to buy our own policy @ $18 US per day. (They did lower it to about $16 per day after we complained.) They told us that the car we rented was a 2019 model but the registration said it was a 2015 and it looked and ran like it was even older. It had not been cleaned in a very long time and was filthy inside. It had dents, scratches and peeling paint on almost every square inch, really a piece of junk. We have rented cars all over the world and this was by far our worst experience. A bad mark for Kayak and car rentals.com as well, we felt ripped off from beginning to end.
8.0 Excellent7 May 2021
Pros: Staff was helpful and pick up and drop off were good.Cons: The price quoted on Kayak website is not accurate. The cost of about $5/day is really about $23/day because of required insurance, even though other websites covering car rental is Mexico say the insurance is required to be included in quoted prices. Note that they will put a $1500 hold on you credit card for possible car damage even if your credit card covers any damage to the car. Also note that what they call an intermediate car is really a compact. Otherwise interaction with car local company is good. Rental date April 2021.
4.0 Okay12 Nov 2019
Pros: Stuff was good, thanks Marco for understanding, but when you return car 1:30 hours later, because its hard to predict traffic-jam in new city in festival day + serpentine 8 hours road before and rental ask you for additional day (but the day before in this great rental was NO cars, despite my booking was 1 month before and only 1 option from rental was - wait please 8 hours! 8 hours !!! ou, and even no appologies or of course compensation) So bad experience at all.Cons: Try to help me to answer after you read previous message
2.0 Mediocre2 Nov 2019
Pros: The original price. False, turns out you also have to purchase insurance on top of your insurance (don’t do it), an undisclosed deposit was required, vehicle wasn’t even there to rent even though I booked it weeks in advance, booked in advance and couldn’t get a refund, and if it says there’s an airport location think twice, because it was incorrect. Avoid this place!!!Cons: Airport location, full transparency on pricing, available customer service, vehicles to be available when you pay in advance. It goes on...
2.0 Mediocre2 Nov 2019
Cons: Skip this place. They didn’t have a vehicle even though it was booked weeks in advance. They wanted a previously undisclosed deposit that happened to be outrageous. I couldn’t get a refund because I purchased in advance. They said they had a pickup and drop off at the airport, and didn’t find out it was 5 miles out until arriving back at the airport. This whole process was a disaster. I went with Europcar rentals instead, they were transparent, they had an airport location, and they had vehicles available.
2.8 Mediocre9 Sep 2019
Cons: Economy car rental in Oaxaca is not at the airport as it says online, have to go downtown to pick up car. There were a number of things wrong with the car, speedometer did not work, one of the front lights didn't work, engine light on. There is an $18/day mandatory insurance added to price. Do not r
2.0 Mediocre29 Nov 2018
Don't waist your time or moneyPros: Nothing, the place just tries to scam you.Cons: They didn't have a car available when we arrived at the time of our reservation. We were told it would be available 8 hours later. We were then told that if we were willing to pay significantly more (like 5x the originally quoted price) then, alas, they did actually have the car we reserved available. After wasting a long time trying to negotiate something close to what our original quoted price was we eventually gave up and used one of the name brand rental car companies instead. Bottom line, don't waist your time with economy rent a car
4.8 Okay28 Nov 2018
Pros: The car was ok. Not great, but overall they charged us properly.Cons: They didn't have the car we ordered on the day, so we had to wait a day to get it. They then told us there would be an extra charge of $18 per day for liability insurance only which was mandatory but not stated on our initial contract. Overall we ended up paying $50 per day, including the one day I didn't even get a car, and I signed up for $19 a day through the site. Total rip off.....
2.0 Mediocre7 Nov 2018
Don't know who to blameCons: I picked a rental company based on presumed availability from the Oaxaca airport. Whether the website was unclear or just plain wrong, there was no kiosk at the airport, no shuttle at the airport, and calls to the company to ask about either were met with strict 'No' answers. Carerentals.com (an Expedia company) was likely, unable or unwilling to help. I had to swallow the entire rental cost (as of now) and rent through a company on-site as a result.

2.0 Mediocre2 Apr 2021
Pros: The car was functional enough for the trip.Cons: The pick up was a mess. I game to pick up the car and was told a total different price and I got it down to around $340 when they told me it was going to be around $1100. Also Kayak told me a way lower price. The people took about 45mins to get my car as well. Very unprofessional. Lastly I was asked to leave $1400 as a deposit and was surprised because I was never told anything about that. I’m still figuring out to this day if they even returned my money to my account. Lastly, when I came to drop off the car, no one was available and I was close to kissing my flight cause of nobody expecting my car to be dropped off at the time I said. Very dissatisfied with the service and how things turned out. I honestly was stressed.
