Car hire in Cancun

Mexico is a great place to indulge in a car rental as you will be overloaded with choices in regards to natural attractions, iconic landmarks, exciting activities and romantic hideouts. The local Sixt office is located at the airport, meaning you can fly and drive into the stunning country that is Mexico. Off road vehicles are available, allowing you to explore some country terrain and by utilising unlimited mileage, you will be able to drive until you get lost. However if you are likely to miss the home comforts of your hotel, you can always request satellite navigation to ensure you find your way back to your base. Your car hire in this part of Mexico can be tailored to suit your personal desires and as well as being able to include additional drivers on your rental agreement, you can request LDW insurance too. The local office is open until 11pm every day, including bank holidays.

Cancun and its most exciting roads of adventure

More than a millennium ago, Mexico was inhabited by the Maya people and one of the most outstanding creations they left behind was Chichen Itza. This stunning sight is well worth driving to and the Underwater Museum will also give you an insight into this country's heritage. If you wish to really treat your eyes to some local scenery, visit the underwater caves of Sistema Dos Ojos, the Belize Barrier Reef or the Ik Kill cenote, a natural feat of immense beauty.

Renting a car here was a breeze. No surprises with insurance etc. as Sixt has all the options listed on its website. Good communication over whatsapp prior to landing. Retrieving and dropping off the car was very swift as well and the employees were very friendly! Would rent here again!

Best online rate including the third party liability insurance, which is required in Mexico. Excellent communication upon arrival (whats app) for pick up at airport. Car was in good condition. Staff was courteous and explained everything clearly. Was presented with quotes with extra insurance and with just the required one. No issues at all when I declined additional/optional insurance. Credit card hold as expected and was released within 24hrs. I will definitely rent again at Sixt next time I visit Cancun.

Make sure you book directly through Sixt’s website (avoid all 3rd party sites like Orbitz).


We learned our lesson earlier in the day when we booked at another rental car spot through Orbitz & they tripled the initial price. Thankfully Sixt saved the day, we booked online through their website, they were prompt to pick us up, kept to the online agreement (which was a better price than our original through Orbitz) & were quick in getting us a car.

They also were very thorough in checking the car before & after pickup with no hidden fees.

We were skeptical with renting a car in Cancun. Sixt had good rates–they were not as low as Fox, but they were reasonable and high enough where it was not "too good to be true." We had insurance through our AllState policy and AMEX credit card. We declined all insurance. They didn't push any insurance on us but they did place a 42,000 peso ($2,000+ USD) hold for damages. From what I've heard, this is normal for Mexico. National does this, and we received the entirety of our deposit back at the end. SIXT put us in a Volkswagen Vento. It was nice and $19 USD a day. The car was not spotless when we returned it. I cleaned it out a tiny bit but they were ok with the dirt and light sand. Note that you have to call for the shuttle or communicate via Whatsapp (as a courtesy they'll reach out to you the day before).The SIXT airport shuttle was prompt picking us up from CUN T3 (15 mins after we got our bags), however it took 30 minutes for us to be dropped off for our flight home. Leave additional time for the shuttle. Take lots of photos of your rental car – interior and exterior, before and after. Pay for gas in pesos when @the PEMEX stations. Our SIXT clerk/rental associate gave us a great tip for counting out the cash when paying the clerk at the pump, "I am handing you 200, 400, 600, 800, etc.." We will rent from SIXT again, thank you!

Great experience with Sixt. The nice thing about them was that the third party liability insurance was included in the rate I booked at. They asked if I wanted to purchase additional insurance. When I said no they did not push the issue and did not try to upsell. There was no wait at the counter. Wait for the shuttle was also minimal.


Only negative is that the car was not new and it showed. Car had 55,000+ miles on it but I had no issues with it. They will take a large deposit on your card but you will get it back.
