HEAD UP ON LIABILITY COST, CREDIT CARD INSURANCE WILL NOT COVER
10.0 Excellent25 Jul 2016
Vacation in ZihuatanejoEverything with the car rental was great. No lines. We arrived at airport and walked to car rental kiosk.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.

They tried to charge double the entire quote for bs “mandatory” insurance. I would not book a rental in Mexico this way ever
2.0 Mediocre25 Mar 2021
Upon arrival to the airport, I was notified that my reservation couldnt be filled as the car was already rented out to another customer. I had to scramble to find the last car available at the airport and ended up paying a ton!

Drop off took to longNot keep on asking for a tip. Safety. One tire on the left rear was cracked on the sidewall very bad.
5.6 Okay7 Jan 2020
Car was newer and in ok shape.Please be aware that taxes are an extra 35% on top of the agreed to price. Plus the very expensive insurance they make you buy. You might as well double the rate on the rental.
8.4 Excellent12 Apr 2017
They don't tell you the insurance cost 5 times the rental fee. In other words, I was quoted an online rental fee of around $106. Then I was told at point of purchase, the counter that the insurance on top of that would be an additional $400.

Horrible ExperienceThe car was dirty with multiple areas damaged at pickup. They marked all the damaged areas and told us we wouldn't be responsible for any of it. Since we rented in Mexico we bought all the extra insurance offered. When we returned the car they blamed us for some of the preexisting damage and told us the insurance didn't cover it. We have rented in Mexico many times before, never from Thrifty, and have never had issues. The cars were clean and damage free. The rental and insurance cost more than what was quoted at time if rental, but unfortunately when you are in Mexico you have no recourse to dispute.

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.

Friendly, didn't try to gouge me on priceMaybe offer all the insurance options rather than start with the most expensive. either way he wasn't pushy
2.0 Mediocre23 Apr 2017
IT"S A SCAM!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!

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.

Too much selling and not enough concern for the customer.The person we dealt with was very nice.Car was in pretty poor condition. Person who handled our rental was very nice but seemed to work on commission and therefore tried to up sell us by literally 800 hundred dollars.

Never got the carEven though I had a reservation and confermation #, when I got there they told me that they are out of cars - never got to rent the car and had to take taxi. This is going to be the last time I will rent from Hertz!!!!

We didn’t like anything. The product offered was inferior and the whole operation is a bait and switch. Extremely dishonest.

guys at the counter tried to charge me another $160 for the rental. I had the paperwork with what we were to pay. Told them no way. Went across the street and got a car from a private party.Honor what our paperwork says.

Top tips for hiring a car at Ixtapa Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Intl Airport

  • Car rental at Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Intl Airport is a convenient way to leap into Guerrero right away. As with most car rentals in international airports, you have a broad array of choices from economy cars, compact minis, premium, and luxury vehicles when you book through KAYAK. Pick your best ride depending on your needs. Minivans and midsize SUVs come in handy for family vacations, while convertibles are more appropriate for romantic getaways to Ixtapa.
  • To book a car at Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo International Airport (ZIH), enter your pick-up and drop-off location in our search toolbox (and the travel dates). Select a different drop-off location if you need a one-way car rental. Note that most one-way trips come with a surcharge. Once you hit the search button, you'll get a list of the available cars based on price, proximity to the airport, and our recommendations. Scroll through the agencies listed on our site to see what works best for you.
  • The best part of booking an Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Intl Airport car rental through KAYAK is that you can refine your search results by capacity, mileage, fuel policy, and payment type. The capacity entails both the number of passengers and bags that the vehicle can accommodate. As for the payment type, you can choose between the 'pay now' and 'pay at the rental counter' options. If limited mileage doesn't meet your travel needs, just tick the box with 'unlimited mileage'.
  • Thanks to the convenient location of the return areas at ZIH Airport, you should drop off your rental car with minimum fuss. The parking lots are situated next to the national and international arrivals halls. What if your travel plans suddenly change and you have to rethink when and where to drop off the vehicle? It would be wrong to assume that the rental company will refund you for the unused days or fuel. On the other hand, late returns will simply add an extra cost to your car rental bill.
  • Book your car hire at Ixtapa Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Intl Airport at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
