My kind of thread! So many useful nuggets here, thanks everyone for sharing.

I have a question regarding car rental for an upcoming trip to Cancun, Mexico. I’ve read horror stories about car agencies there (including the big ones e.g. Hertz & Avis), especially with things like upsell, cars not being available, arbitrary decline of non-rental agency insurance, etc. When factoring in the insurance (on Hertz and Avis) prices get a bit crazy.

Does anyone have any recommendations on which agencies to use? Ideally we’d like to pick-up/drop-off at CUN airport (~19th of April to 1st of May = 12 days), but if there are more trustworthy agencies off-airport we could consider this.

For what it’s worth, I have an Amex Platinum – I presume the insurance is valid in Mexico?

Any help appreciated!!!
