Top tips for renting a car at Cozumel airport

  • You can make your vacation on the island of Cozumel an exciting one by renting a car at Cozumel Airport. A car rental will enable you to hit the road to your destination shortly after landing at CZM and on your own schedule. Apart from that, a nice rental car in this part of Mexico will give you an added advantage to drive to places that public transportation may not reach. With your rented car, you can enjoy endless road trips around Cozumel Island while taking your vacation experience to another level.
  • To enjoy your stay in Cozumel, you’ll definitely need a car that suits your taste and budget. A car rental at Cozumel Airport will definitely provide you with the right car for your travel needs. However, you must be at least 21 years of age to rent a car from one of the car rental companies at CZM. Bear in mind that if you’re below 21 years old you will be subject to the usual daily young driver fee. Make sure to confirm your eligibility with the specific rental car agency before you book.
  • Once you land at Cozumel Airport, proceed to collect your luggage and go straight to the Shuttle Rental Car Area located outside the baggage claim section of the airport. You’ll most likely find an agent who will direct or arrange for the shuttle bus to take you to the car pick-up location. Ensure that you get clear instructions about the car return time from your car provider before you drive off to your destination. The pick-up and drop-off hours at CZM are from 8 am to 8 pm from Monday to Sunday.
  • The best day for pick-up or drop-off of your car rental at Cozumel Airport is on Saturday because this is the least busy day at the airport. Avoid peak hours, which start from 5 pm to 6 pm to save yourself from spending time waiting in line. This means that you should be at the car pick-up point or car return area a few hours before 5 pm on weekdays.
  • Book your rental car at Cozumel airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Cons:

I bought the insurance online when I reserved the car but when I went to pick up the car the employee said the insurance I bought online was worthless. He said I need to buy insurance from him or I wouldn't have any, or very little liability coverage. I didn't appreciate having to buy insurance twice.

Location was not in the airport as described. After trekking across a parking area and field to the location we discovered our car had been given away because we missed the reservation time by about 1/2 an hour. (I had tried to change the pick up time on line multiple times prior to arrival but the website wasn’t working properly.) Our friend’s reservation was still good, but the proposed car looked sketchy and the employee who met us tried to force him to pay a bunch of previously hidden fees. We walked back to the airport and booked with Hertz, who were very professional and kind.

Pros:

Very friendly staff and very thorough. It's a great car to get around Cozumel if you're exploring the island.

Cons:

First off, it wasn't called Ace rental anymore on Cozumel, its Fox Car Rentals now. And secondly I wasn't expecting any more fees based on the price I reserved the car for. I was confused that the company charged me an extra fee for insurance, and I thought that was included in the price that I reserved it for. It would of been nice if they programmed their address in the GPS for an easy way to get back to the drop off. Or showed us how to some of the features work.

Pros:

The representative was helpful under very disappointing circumstances.

Cons:

Kayak had a reservation for 2, 7 passenger vans. When getting to the airport and the hot trailer of Fox rental car, we found that they do not rent vans. We were able to rent a very small car with poor air conditioning for 1 day, then the following day we were able to pick up a 15-passenger manual stick shift van. Don't know where they got this van, but Fox rentals is very limited in their automobiles. Very unhappy with the entire process. It took forever (2 1/2 hours) to get things straightened out. Never again will we use Kayak or Fox Car Rental.

Cons:

The on-line info said that the counter for rental was in the terminal. It was three blocks away. My wife and I like the convenience of in-the-terminal rental. We had several pieces of luggage and "lugging" these around is not how we want to spend our time in paradise. Also, the price quoted on-line did not include $35/day mandatory Mexican insurance. We ended up using Avis that did have a counter in the terminal and cars immediately outside.

Jan 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

This was our second attempt to rent from Fox Rental in Cozumel. Last March we arrived in Cozumel at Fox Rental to be told it was a $50 us per day charge for the insurance. We walked away and rented with another car company. This time I did my homework and printed the cost of insurance per day and the deposit fee from Fox's website. The cost for CDW is $21.99 us per day. You have no choice. Do not take the insurance from a third party, when you arrive in Mexico, Fox rental won't accept this. This is how they make their money.

Cons:

My first question when we arrived at Fox's office in Cozumel, is how much is your CDW insurance ? I was told $25.00 us a day. Not true I said to the Fox representative. Produced a copy of the insurance costs. Then I told him I had a reservation. Would he like a good review or a poor review? He honoured the reservation price and the insurance cost of $21.99 us a day. A deposit for mid size cars is an additional $300 us. When you return the car intact they give you the visa imprint back. We saved at least $300 us for our car rental. You have to be prepared to stand up to Fox. I was told by Fox USA, in Mexico; Fox Car Rental is independently owned; they have frequent complaints. The car we received was very basic. Was an automatic and had air conditioning. Otherwise, no power windows or locks. For the price we were happy and would rent again from Fox. It's unfortunate you have to do so much preparation to rent a car.

Pros:

I think all cars are newer now so you should get a good one. Price with minimal insurance is about $210 USD for a week. Don't think you get the price on the web cause you must add $17.00 per day insurance and this is not complete insurance! Always book exactly the car you want like size and transmission as they will not upgrade unless they charge a huge amount. Also don't hit the tires against the curb or they charge fir damage...the slightest tiny ding or scratch is mega money. If you get a ding have it fixed before you take it back and you'll save hundreds as body work is cheap if dine by you vs. them. They are along with their sister company Dollar the best on the island I think.
