Renting a car in Los Cabos for your vacation? Here are some tips!

When you’re visiting Los Cabos, a car rental is a great idea for sightseeing and getting around. Whether you’ll be visiting local golf courses, doing some shopping, visiting local beaches or heading to historic San José del Cabo or charming Todos Santos, nothing beats the convenience of getting around the area on your own schedule. If you’re planning on a car rental in Cabo during your vacation, here are few important things you should remember: 

1. Hidden Fees Can Really Add Up
If you see a car rental deal that seems too good to be true, it probably is. Some car rental agencies advertise astonishingly low daily rates, only to bundle a staggering number of add-ons and fees at the end. Xavier de la Fuente Acuña of AVIS Mexico says, “unfortunately some Los Cabos visitors book the lowest looking daily rate only to be unpleasantly surprised by a lot of hidden fees. We prefer to be transparent about our fees up-front.” Furthermore, some car rental agencies will place a substantial hold on your credit card for the duration of your stay – placing an unwelcome damper on your vacation funds. 

2. Insurance and Loss & Damage Waiver Protection
Many Cabo visitors don’t realize that their U.S. car insurance will not cover them abroad. That’s why it’s a very wise choice to opt for coverage. But not all coverages are made the same. Some low end car rental agencies will provide high deductible plans that, should anything occur, will end up costing more than the peace of mind of taking the better coverage with a reputable dealership like AVIS Mexico in the first place. Save yourself the stress, and go with the coverage. Car Rentals In Los Cabos, Mexico
