Cons:

Plane arrived late, there was no one at the Alamo counter in the airport despite still being within hours of operation. I was told they close at any time if they no longer have cars to rent, but then my reservation was not honored. Will never rent from Alamo again, poor customer service in puerto Vallarta.

Pros:

Terrible staff. Location is NOT in airport, it’s miles away. Made us wait for 20 minutes for pick up. Once there they did not let me deny insurances although I am insured by Amex. The forced insurances were more expensive than the car rental itself. I tried talking to the manager but he was equal or worst than the employees. When we checked the car for damages I tried to do a video but the employee would not acknowledge the date, name or name of the company. Left my Amex cc open for a couple thousand dollars only to fin out one day later that “someone” tried to use my card for internet purchases upwards of $3,000 usd. TERRIBLE COMPANY

Cons:

Honesty. Service. Timing. Acknowledging and actually charging me what I reserved.

This company is a time share front. Extraordinary "mandatory Insurance" cost. Felt like extortion. Then they offer the refund if you attend a time share presentation for Vidanta Resorts. Value of rebate seems to be the value of the insurance. SHAME on KAYAK for representing this company. You will be finding more detail coming soon on a facebook and trip advisor post naming all involved. MEXC car rental is absolutely dishonest and your stuck at the counter in a foreign country when you discover this.

Many hidden fees!! They force you to purchase insurance even though most credit cards cover this. It is at minimum $20/day. Also lots of taxes. It ended up being about $200 more than advertised on Kayak. Complete BS.

Kayak hooked me up with a midsize car for me , my wife and my parents who are larger people so we need a midsize vehicle for our trip and there's luggage too! First off we couldn't find the enterprise on FRANCISCO MEDINA ASCENCIO 141, Puerto Vallarta, JA, MX which doesn't exist. So we went to the airport enterprise- to grab our Nissan Xtrail, they proceeded to tell us that they don't have a car for us even though we have one reserved prior to coming. Arguing with the enterprise rental person no apology or anything, which is ridiculous. So we cancelled our rental reservation due to no car and no help from enterprise at all. We tried to get a car at Alamo at the airport who also didn't have any cars for us. They took us to the big Alamo outside of the airport. They told us they had a midsized car and they gave us a Nissan Micra clown car. This is the smallest car and we all had to sit with luggage on our laps and at our feet it was so small. Whatever we get the car do our trip to Mazatlan and go to return the car. They won't give us our deposit back so we sat and waited. They were super unhelpful and didn't know a goddam thing about anything at all. This was the WORDST RENTAL CAR EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!!!! I am not at all impressed with PRICELINE, KAYAK, ENTERPRISE OR ALAMO!! You have all gotten this review because none of you are helpful or even care about your customers. I will never ever use PRICELINE, KAYAK , ALAMO OR ENTERPRISE EVER AGAIN! I would like this issue to be rectified.

Pros:

Liability only insurance was $28 per day. There is no sign at the airport directing you to this company. One staff member in the office to process the paperwork for cars going out and coming back. Between trying to find the company 30 minutes and the one staff in the office it seemed to take an hour and half to rent the car. To top it off I have never paid so much for liability insurance only. The girl said the rate was higher because of the holiday season. Usually I am out the door with ins and car for $250. This was $375 for 6 days in a Jetta. Seemed like a scam.

By far the worst rental car experience of my life. We were charged much more the the rate advertised on Hotwire and the “insurance” charge made my total 3x more than what I found online. $360 USD for a 2 day rental, MORE than I paid for an entire week rental with a different agency in the area the week before. On top of that, the agents tried to charge us an extra $1000 pesos to clean out a little dog hair that was in the car for “extra work” they would need to do. The manager tried to negotiate with us when we argued, and lowered it to $500 pesos, as if it was some kind of deal that we had to negotiate. There was nothing about dog hair in the contract, and when we pointed that out, the agent pointed to a different section about smoking in the car, claiming that it also applied to dog hair. Anyway, we didn’t want to pay this absurd fee so We took the car and cleaned it with OUR HANDS and it took 10 minutes. We read terrible reviews online but decided to risk it since it was only a 2 day rental. It was way overpriced, a horrible experience, and honestly the whole company seems like a giant scam. Knowing the reviews, we were cautious on everything: we brought the far back a day early, full tank of gas, got the 100% insurance coverage, and they still tried to rip off a client like us. Hertz should be ashamed to be associated with this company, and they should also be investigated for fraud, based on our experience and others I’ve read. I will never be renting from Hertz again and I will be sharing this review with everyone I know.

Cons:

The pick up and drop off process was like going back to the early 1990s. Definitely could be much more streamlined. Also, our car was not clean when we got it (sweat stain on the passenger seat). We watched a couple guys wipe it down and spray some cleaner in the car right before we took delivery of the vehicle for the rental.

By far the worst rental car experience of my life. We were charged much more the the rate advertised on Hotwire and the “insurance” charge made my total 3x more than what I found online. $360 USD for a 2 day rental, MORE than I paid for an entire week rental with a different agency in the area the week before. On top of that, the agents tried to charge us an extra $1000 pesos to clean out a little dog hair that was in the car for “extra work” they would need to do. The manager tried to negotiate with us when we argued, and lowered it to $500 pesos, as if it was some kind of deal that we had to negotiate. There was nothing about dog hair in the contract, and when we pointed that out, the agent pointed to a different section about smoking in the car, claiming that it also applied to dog hair. Anyway, we didn’t want to pay this absurd fee so We took the car and cleaned it with OUR HANDS and it took 10 minutes. We read terrible reviews online but decided to risk it since it was only a 2 day rental. It was way overpriced, a horrible experience, and honestly the whole company seems like a giant scam. Knowing the reviews, we were cautious on everything: we brought the far back a day early, full tank of gas, got the 100% insurance coverage, and they still tried to rip off a client like us. Hertz should be ashamed to be associated with this company, and they should also be investigated for fraud, based on our experience and others I’ve read. I will never be renting from Hertz again and I will be sharing this review with everyone I know.

Pros:

Once we got the vehicle we wanted it served it’s purpose

Cons:

We were completely scammed from the minute that we walked into the Hertz office in Mexico. They took advantage of us and it was very sad. Even though our taxes and fees were including the rental price they forced additional taxes and fees which we knew was incorrect. They forced us to get insurance when we wanted to waive it and we had already confirmed that we had insurance with both our auto company and through our credit card before hand. We were also forced to pay for the full tank of gasoline when we have only usedLess than half. The entire experience was very unfortunate and wrong. They also wouldn’t give us the keys to our vehicle until we sat through a seminar on excursions and “” discounts because we got a car rental. We should not have been forced to do that.

I picked this company because they had an airport location; thinking I would not have to shuttle offsite to get the car. That wasn’t the case; I had to take a shuttle to an offsite location. FYI. Also, the $322 weekly rental turned out to be $714 because of the required insurance. Over double the amount we anticipate spending.

Pros:

The car was fine and the people in the Puerto Vallarta office spoke English which was nice. It was nice to be able to pick up in Puerto Vallarta and drop off in Guadalajara.

Cons:

The one way fee of $200 seemed excessive but the fact that the mandatory insurance cost even more was totally unexpected. Although Mexican drivers are crazy so while expensive, the insurance is probably worth it if you get in an accident. It would have been nice to know the cost of the insurance ahead of time. It was unanticipated and cut into our budget.

They refuse to rent you the car, unless you take the minimum insurance 3. They hold your CC hostage for many thousands of dollars, unless you take their insurance. 4. Rent from: Gecko or SIXT - honest and good people who INCLUDE the cost of the insurance in the price per day!!!

Pros:

If you want to pay more.....Payless!

Cons:

Reservation was made for an SUV to fit 4 people plus golf gear. Upon arrival, they did not have an SUV available so offered us a Jetta. They also don't include mandatory insurance in their quote (doubled the price of the rental). As we could not fit all the people + gear in the Jetta, 2 people had to take a taxi to our destination. +80$. The office was not open early enough before our return flight which again meant another 2 taxi's from punta mita to PVR. The (child?) manager Jaime was openly rude, unhelpful, and unwilling to compromise despite us paying out of pocket for three 40 minute taxis due to their screw ups. He even told us that the taxi we booked through the 4 seasons was "not a real taxi" then suddenly he went back to not being able to speak english. Huge waste of time and money on our vacation. Could not urge you to look elsewhere strongly enough.

Cons:

We made a rental reservation online prior to arriving in Mexico. The rental rate was very, very inexpensive, but we figured that was because the region didn't have many renters. When we arrived at the rental facility after 6 hours of travel, burdened with our luggage, we were told that there was an additional $38/day rental cost to cover liability insurance. The fact that I have individual auto insurance and rental insurance through my credit card company didn't matter. What a complete and total ripoff. Because the car wasn't absolutely essential, we ended up calling a taxi and paying 1/3 of what we would have paid for the rental. When I make a booking that tells me all taxes and fees are included, I expect that to be true when I arrive to pick up my vehicle.

2.0 Mediocre

Mar 2017

KAYAK

Cons:

You get offered a very low rate for the car. But, upon arrival you are forced to buy required minimum insurance, which was quoted at oaver $300. They even lowered it to "negotiate". I've rented cars in Mexico before and I'm well aware 3PL insurance is required in Mexico and your insurance and your credit card insurance does not cover this. It normally ranges $10-15 a day MAX. So for a 7 day rental a $300 charge for this insurance was a total scam and makes it feel very timeshare like game playing. When I rent a car, show the price of the car to me and don't hike the cost of ancillary insurance to make up for the low cost of the actual car rental. It is a very shady way of operating a business and I walked out of the rental place, took a taxi and called it a day.

Top tips for renting a car in Puerto Vallarta

  • Perhaps the top reason travelers should rent a vehicle during their time in Puerto Vallarta is that there is no better way to see the beautiful coastline. There are many gorgeous beach spots that dot the coastline near Puerto Vallarta and many of them are a quick drive from town. Some of the options include Playa de los Muertos (7 km or 3.4 miles away) and Playa las Gemelas (16 km or 10 miles away).
  • Excited to begin your trip in Puerto Vallarta? You can pick up your hire car as soon as you arrive. For travelers with flights to Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport, the hire car counters can be found in both the National and International Arrivals Halls.
  • Francisco Medina Ascencio is the main road in Puerto Vallarta and is often a key part of any itinerary. It is a very large road with four lanes of traffic on each side and can be a bit confusing for first time drivers. For instance, to take a left turn off the road you must exit onto one of the parallel running access roads and from there you can exit onto other streets.
  • Rush hour in Puerto Vallarta, like in many cities in Mexico, is no joke. In general, the morning rush hour goes from 7:00 a.m. and lasts until 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. As for the afternoon and evening peak, it starts at around 5:00 p.m. and finishes up at around 7:00 p.m. Highway 200, one of the main thoroughfares in Puerto Vallarta, experiences the bulk of the city’s congestion and should be avoided during peak hours.
