Driving in Mexico

Driving in Mexico

Before you pick up your Sixt car hire in Mexico, you should be aware that the rules of the road may be different from what you are used to.
  • For example, when entering or leaving towns or villages, look out for ""topes"" or speed bumps. These can be hard to see and may not be signposted, so be sure to slow down when approaching a town.
  • When in towns, be aware that traffic rules might go against your expectations - sometimes at a three-lane junction, vehicles from the two right-hand lanes may cross the left lane to make a left turn. The left-lane driver should give way to the drivers making the turn.
Finally when driving in Mexico you should be alert to animals in the road, especially in the countryside - you could be sharing the road with cows, horses or even donkeys.

Small operation, but the staff is super friendly and helpful and they don't go over the car with a microscope looking for scratches they can charge you for like Hertz in Cabo does. And the rental fees and insurance are reasonable! They have a van for transport between the store and the airport. Check if your car insurance covers rental car damage in Mexico and you can get by with just Mexican liability.
Best place to rent a car at SJD. They have a small staff and you might have to wait a few minutes for a ride, but it's worth it. Once at the office it only took 10 minutes to get our SUV (versus 2.5 hours at the rental place next door). They didn't try pressure tactics about the insurance like the neighboring rental company either. FYI, all rental companies put a ~US$2,000 hold on your credit card if you use your own insurance. The return process was also very smooth and prompt (thanks, Francisco!).

I had an exceptional experience with these guys. They made our vacation a lot smoother, so had more time to enjoy it. They accommodated our every need and helped us find a gas station to fill up before our flight back home. I highly recommend booking a rental car through Sixt if you’re ever in Los Cabos!

Recommended! As soon as I arrived I talked to Julio who gave me all the details and pricing with no BS. Process was quick and I was able to ride out of there in less than 15 mins. Car was clean, new, and equipped. Came back turned it in and closed out. Got my deposit back within 4 days no extra charges. Definitely using them again! Gracias Julio - Isaías

We rented a car for 9 days. This is my second time in three years renting from Sixt. David is awesome. He speaks 4 or more languages. He is super friendly and reasonable. Most rental agencies in Mexico pressure you into buying CDW insurance, which doubles your rate. My Visa covers the CDW if I use it to pay and the rental period is not longer than 12 days. It cost me $400 for 9 days which i thought was fair. I will call David directly next time I'm in beautiful Guadalajara to set up my rental from Sixt.

Great customer service! Cesar is amazing! We had a terrible experience with a reservation at America Car Rental, had to walk away from it. Cesar and Sixt were there to help us out and save our vacation.

SIXT is, by far, the best rental car facility in Cabo. We have been using SIXT for several years after being burned by several other companies for our earlier visits to Cabo. There are no 'surprise' tactics with extra charges like many other rental places in Cabo. Just get the insurance you need. It is not forced upon you. They even stayed open past their closing time just for me because my flight was delayed 3 hours - AND texted to make sure the shuttle was there to greet me. Marcos is absolutely fabulous in terms of customer service and Victor was a delight as my shuttle driver and very heavy suitcase lifter. We own a rental property in Cabo and recommend SIXT to all of our guests who want to rent a car.
Easy to rent a car. No line. Called for shuttle to pick up at airport as rental cars are across the street but too far to walk. Great rates and mandatory Mexican insurance included in price.

Just returned the car. Nothing was damaged and I returned it with same gas amount as received. No issues or additional charges. There was a large hold on the card for not paying additional insurance, but I didn’t mind it. If booked with Sixt website, required third party insurance is included. Since I was skeptical, I did take photos of all documents, and photos and videos of the car in case I was charged wrongfully. Car conditions - it did have the engine light on the whole time, and it had 113k miles, but it worked well driving to La Paz and Cabo Pulmo. The only thing I wasn’t pleased about is the various airport desk folks trying to get you to spend money on their “deals”. You’ll see them after the location where you submit your customs form. Just ask them for the car rental company pickup location and leave. Once you get there, you’ll see they have a car with a small Sixt sticker and the driver will be holding a laminated Sixt logo. It’s like a 5 minute drive to the car rental spots, free of charge.
