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..

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.

Cons:

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.

Pros:

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.

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.

May 2021

KAYAK

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 Excellent

May 2021

KAYAK

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.

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:

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...

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.

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.

The price that was quoted, was NOWHERE near what I paid. They offer you different coverage options, I picked the cheapest that still had coverage, and it was almost double the price quoted by Kayak. Even if I’d picked no coverage at all, it was still $100 more total.

This location rarely actually has vehicles and they're incredibly unhelpful. We were stuck (along with dozens of others) who showed up with reservations, only to be told that there are zero cars available and there wouldn't be any available for days. Oaxaca airport car rental companies are a scam.

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

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.

Top tips for renting a car in Oaxaca

  • Renting a car on your visit to Oaxaca is highly convenient for when your aim is flexibility while moving around the city and getting a feel of the rich Mexican culture. Oaxaca is known for being the capital, and one of the largest cities in Mexico therefore can get quite busy and crowded especially when using public transport. The airport is located in the outskirts of the city around 20min away from the city center. You should consider getting renting a car in Oaxaca to be able to visit some of the popular tourist attractions located outside of town, such as the Monte Alban, which is a 2500-year-old archaeological ruin and houses the Monte Alban Ruins Museum.
  • There are several Oaxaca car rentals conveniently situated at the Xoxocotlan International Airport such as Alamo, Sunnycars, Economy Rent a Car, Thrifty, Keddy, Dollar, Firefly, and Rhodium, whose agencies can be found at the terminal. Off-site car rentals in Oaxaca, such as Hertz, Europcar, and NU Car, are accessible via airport shuttles and taxis.
  • Like many major cities, visitors are advised to be cautious when moving through the streets of Oaxaca, which can get busy at times, with a few traffic violators. Motorists should be vigilant while driving as there are a few jaywalkers who may jump on the road without warning. Drivers are also warned to observe traffic rules while driving by not going over the speed limit or double parking on busy streets. It is also recommended that visitors opt for car rentals in Oaxaca with cars that have built-in GPS, to be able to maneuver through unfamiliar roads.
  • Since Oaxaca is known to be congested, visitors should expect to spend some time on the roads especially during rush hour, between 7am to 10am, and picks back up again at around 3pm to 6pm when people are heading back to their homes. The roads are sometimes filled with vendors and windshield cleaners who are known to contribute to the length of stay in traffic.
  • Book your rental car in Oaxaca at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Oaxaca are around -18% cheaper than other car types, on average
