Pros:

Staff were helpful and tried to fix the issue with pick up caused by one of their colleagues.

Cons:

I was offered a pick up at a different location but the vehicle was not there when I arrived. I had to wait 30 mins to get the car. This caused a delay with my travel plans for the rest of the day.

KAYAK

Pros:

The car

Cons:

The agent lied that we needed insurance and the credit card insurance doesn't work in Mexico. This was a waste of money. Upon return, no agent available. He was out for a walk and someone else had to call him back to the airport. This wasted a half hour

KAYAK

Pros:

Price was very low.

Cons:

The airport we landed at did not have a National booth. They brought the car to us. The car was a car way bigger than the one I requested and he didn't bring it around until after we signed everything. The car was dirty. When it came to drop off they were not waiting for us at the airport the way they said they would. Instead they told us to park the car in the airport parking lot and to leave the keys under the mat. They said they would go get it shortly. Like wth. They weren't even going to honor the reservation until I said no this the price I reserved the car for and then they changed it.

Pros:

Very clean and reliable car. It was also good on gas.

Cons:

After paying through kayak prior to my arrival and once you’re at the rental spot to pick up the car, they offer you different options for “coverage”. First option is over $200 USD for full coverage with a $100 deposit. This is in case anything happens to the vehicle and any injuries to parties involved in an accident up to a certain amount. Second option is roughly $115 USD for third party coverage, sort of like liability insurance coverage in the US which only covers the other involved party. It also requires a $100 deposit. If you decide to not chose either of the options, then you’ll be required to give a $2500 USD deposit. From my understanding, other car rentals do not require this and you’ll already have some sort of coverage from your credit card already for the rental, so my advise would be to check in with them first.

, The problem is with the insurance provider provided by kayak. Mex rent a car doesn’t like it so they requiered a $4,000 deposit 💸 against anything that might happen. If you use kayaks insurance. Also if you use a third party insurance they will hold you liable first.

I made my reservation online and when I went to pick up my rental there were no available cars. I had to go with another company and paid more than double the price for the rental. I filed a complaint and no refund yet.

I bought a price online, only to find out that this was not the price, because, after all, they must add a bunch of out of nowhere add-ons making it as expensive as everyone else's. Never mind that. Your insurance is too expensive and does not cover the car 100% without a deductible. Ah, not to worry, we will give you an upgrade on the car, one more expensive. Does the 100% deductible apply? No. That means if the car is totaled, I'm paying even more! So I went to Avis right in front. 100% coverage, no deductible, less costly overall. Sorry, I felt scammed by Europcar by them hiding real costs. Not again.

Worst experience of my life! Not only did they NOT honor the price on the reservation, WE NEVER GOT THE CAR WE RESERVED.EVER. I was told I was to be put on a waiting list and they were going to call me whenever a vehicle was available. I never got the call. Alamo could care less about their customers, let alone delivering upon what they promised. I HOPE KAYAK STOP DOING BUSINESS WITH ALAMO.

We were directed from Thrifty to Hertz, don't know why. We were upgraded to a Mercedes Benz van. That all sounded good but...center console (Radio, GPS. Screen, etc.) not working. Gas gauge didn't work. Tire pressure indicator warning light always on, windshield cracked, interior lights didn't work. When we rented the vehicle they acknowledged all of that AND we wasted over an hour waiting for them to find registration papers. Upon return they tried to charge me for gas, even though it was full. With all the defects I should have gotten a discount. It was worse than rent a wreck. Worst rental experience ever.

The worst experience we ever had. Upon arriving at location we were being told that they don't have the we reserved and ask us to upgrade for way high cost. In his wording it doesn't matter if you have reservation or not.They purposely want you to pay more at the counter.

Top tips for renting a car in Santiago de Querétaro

  • Mexico is very similar to the U.S. in that automobiles reign supreme in many municipalities. Santiago de Queretaro is no exception to that rule. As a visitor to Santiago de Queretaro, it is highly recommended that you rent a vehicle during your time in the city as it will provide the easiest and most efficient means of transport in the city. This is because buses are the only option for public transportation in the city and, although these bus lines are extensive, in the evening hours and on weekends they offer limited service and are ill-suited for visitors trying to get the most out of their time.
  • Travelers looking to pick up a hire car upon arriving at Querétaro Intercontinental Airport will find the hire car counters in the Arrivals Hall of the main terminal.
  • No trip to Santiago de Queretaro is complete without a visit to the town’s historic center, but one thing to keep in mind is that many of the old colonial streets and alley are car-free. Visitors planning on taking in the sights should keep this in mind and plan accordingly.
  • Santiago de Queretaro is popular among both Mexican residents and visitors alike; this means that there is occasionally some congestion and traffic on its streets. The usual rush hour traffic starts shortly after 7:00 a.m. and lasts until 9:00 a.m. most mornings. In the afternoon, rush hour congestion picks up at about 4:00 p.m. and cools off at around 6:00 p.m. One of the main roads to avoid during rush hour is Highway 57, as it is one of the most popular outlets to and from the city.
  • Book your rental car in Santiago de Querétaro at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Santiago de Querétaro are around 60% cheaper than other car types, on average
