Inform that the price you pay does not include insurance and that is a mandatory thing for Mexico. This added $350!!!! to our rental costs

Bait and switch. My rental went from $100 to $1200 with all the extras they added without telling me. They didn’t have the class of vehicle I reserved so they charged me $200 more for the next size up. Charged me $85 for something called premium service which was NOTHING. Vehicle was beat up, and had over 100km on the odometer. Won’t rent from hertz again. I truly felt scammed.

Staff was friendly, but it would be nice if someone could speak a little English. My Spanish is not too good.Signs for dropoff are very confusing. Hertz should put its own sign out on the airport highway.

Car brakes made a loud noise. Very uncofortable, but I was too far away to go back and exchange the car. Office hours start at 7:00 so, if you have an early flight on your way out, you may have some troubles returning the car.

Missing / Misleading informationThey gave us a speedy ride to the proper terminal when dropping off the car.There are three terminals in Monterrey where we arrived. There was no way to know which terminal the rental location was located. The very inexpensive rental price did not include insurance and they insisted that my insurance would not cover the vehicle so I ended up paying a regular rental rate of aroun $35 USD per day. The parking lot where we returned the car was flooded after rain and there was no safe place to get out of the car. Very difficult with large luggage.

I made the reservation one month ahead of the trip, received my confirmation number and some remainder the day before my flight. Pick up time was 11 pm but when I arrived at 11:20 pm they were closed. The explanation I got 2 days later was : We close at 11 pm but our website needs to be updated.

They didn’t even have the car we had booked or any other SUV whatsoever. We had to go to the counters of every car rental company at the airport to find a car last minute and we have 3 little children. Unacceptable.

5.2 Okay2020 Jan 24
Drop off was easy but pick up was awful.They lied on pickup that having rental cars insured was a law when I asked not to get insurance. They said they would not give me the car without insurance. So I paid more than the original amount.

The cae, the serviceIt’s a scam to offer $6 for a week with the car and when we got there we had to pay $400. It should have said $400 from the beginning. Horrible experience

Couldn't find the rental company, I asked around, Google the name, see the address and the phone number on the reservation and phone didn't work, address there was no way to go clearly It was in the mty airport
2.0 Mediocre2021 Dec 31
We waited at the airport for more than an hour to get picked up after speaking with an agent and being told multiple times someone would be there within 5 minutes. Calling the rental agency took multiple attempts because the line would disconnect. We told the agency we had 5 passengers and they sent a driver in a sedan to pick us up so we had to sit on laps in the backseat to fit. It would have been faster and cheaper to wait until our flight landed and go through Avis or another airport rental agency (we know because after an hour of waiting we began the process of renting another car but stopped because the pickup managed to arrive). When we spoke with an officer at the airport to figure out where we should go, he and another shuttle driver said they had never heard of this rental agency and that we were being scammed. Once at the office to sign the paperwork, they added on an additional $140 USD charge that was not communicated previously.

Good experience, BUT only after locating actual car rental company--which is not under name Economy. No sign or anything at Monerrey baggage claim. Instead had to ask around where are, how get to pick up.
8.0 Excellent2021 May 07
Car was great, and staff were helpfulOn arriving in Baggage Claim, there was no set up at all for Economy...no contact phone for pickup (only in my booking info a local telephone number to call...and on arrival my phone didn't work for Mexico). When was able to call, turns it Economy operates under another name.
2.0 Mediocre2019 Jan 02
False advertisingDid not pick up carThey advertised as ‘in terminal.’ Only after I booked They clarified they are actually far from the airport. I had a short time so couldn’t risk the long shuttle. When I asked for a refund they were entirely unhelpful and I ended up wasting $50 because of their bait and switch advertising.

Pick-up took too long. There were unexpected (negative) surprises such as a costly insurance necessary to rent. Ultimately paid twice what I expected. Return was swift but they wanted to charge for gas (luckily I had a picture of the gas reading at pick-up).

Nobody was at the counter to direct anything nor did anyone pick up when the airport information desk called the agency. Needed to rent with someone else. Unbelievably poor service
6.4 Good2016 Oct 04
Hidden feesThey were helpful when explaining the fees.The Insurance turned out to be triple what the car cost. And I had already purchased the $10 protection. If I did not purchase the insurance, the company was going to open a credit card voucher for the total cost of the car - about $35,000.That seemed risky too.

The staff was not helpful at all with my experience. The clerk at the counter refused my reservation because he claimed the system read my licence to be less than one year old and when I explained here it was a renewed licence he just said there was nothing he could do. When I explained to him I had just rented a car in the US with national and that I am 40yo, that in Canada licence are renewed periodically he just refused to do something to help on the situation. Then I requested him to use his land-phone to call anyone in Avis Corp to help he simply refused. When I asked to talk to his supervisor he refused and proceed to cancel my reservation.Train the Clark to help the customer. Make modifications to the Avis rental system to understand what a renewed licence is

their counter was closed when we arrived so we were forced to get a car from Hertz at a higher price.

Budget and $3000 DepositWe ended up not renting a car due to the deposit amonut.The agent was not clear that they would be holding a $3000 US depost on my credit card on top of the rental car fee. After charging the fee he ran my card again and it declined. We understood it would be 3000 pesos, so we were confident it would be approved. Due to them being unclear, we told them to cancel all transactions. They said they did but a $2900 hold remained on my credit card. For my whole trip in Mexico my only credit card was maxed out and I couldn’t use it for anything. This was my first time out of the US and purposely brought my credit card for emergencies, as of today the charge is still showing as pending.

LocationThe location was not at the airport as stated in the confirmation. I got there and asked around and only two others were there but not budget. When I called support while I was looking for the place, I couldn't speak to anyone as some sort of password was needed (the call would auto drop)

Top tips for renting a car in Monterrey

  • From the airport in Monterrey you’ll have just a short drive to the city’s center, so why not rent a car? Along with being able to visit attractions like the Macroplaza or Cerro de la Silla, you can also drive to the city of Guadalupe or Santa Catarina (home to several beautiful caverns and caves).
  • Monterrey International Airport is one of the busiest airports in Mexico. This large airport has an array of hire car companies for travelers to choose from, including Thrift, Sixt, and Dollar. Once you land and have your bags in hand, simply go to Terminal C to get your car. Rent a car from here for a day, a week, or even a month.
  • There are many toll roads around Monterrey so you’ll want to have plenty pesos on hand. When driving in smaller cities, you might see a difference in traffic lights. That is, although red is still for stop and green for go, a blinking green light will serve as a warning to let you know the light will soon change so do not proceed.
  • Many commuters ride the bus or take the train to work in Monterrey. However, traffic can still be heavy during peak travel hours around the city. Peak hours in the morning are typically from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the evenings. It gets the busiest around the downtown area and business districts.
  • Book your rental car in Monterrey at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Monterrey are around 78% cheaper than other car types, on average
