Must have lots of patience
Pros: The car was clean, and the people were friendly.
Cons: They didn't even have a car to rent to us! When they found a temporary solution, they just kept us waiting for 4 hours while they slowly prepared the car. Multiply everything by 3 or 4. If they say it will be ready in 10 minutes, plan on 40, 1 hour = 4 hours, etc. We were eventually on our way, but very frustrated.

Terrible experience !
Cons: Car was not in a good mechanical condition. Everyone seemed to be fine until 3 days after driving the car. The breakes were not working! I considered that to be a major issue; i was afraid I'd be in a higher risk of getter no into an accident. When I called they concluded by saying "We only act when the vehicle has a rally severe damage, and that the breaks not functioning wasn't one of them. They simply told me to take go find a mechaninc and fix it myself with no chance of my getting a different vehicle, and instead they tried persuade me with a pricier vehicle. Never again!

Hidden costs
Pros: Everyone was friendly and helpful. We were shuttled to the rental agency and given a car. The car was clean and comfortable. Dropping the car off went smoothly and quickly with no delay getting us to our flight on time.
Cons: I was led to believe the price quoted online would include everything. Upon arrival we were informed of the mandatory insurance which was way more than the cost of the rental. It was definitely not what I expected to pay. They also put a very high hold on my credit card while we had the car. I would have liked to know about all of this before booking.

Horrible - Europcar México
Pros: Horrible experience they wouldn't take the insurance from rentacars.com so I had to purchase their insurance originally for $380 then miraculously after 1.5hra fighting them it went to $200 extra only. Also when dropping off the car they tried to charge me because there was no car manual which was never in the car to begin with and for a scratch on the rim, when I went to look at what they wanted to charge me for they were looking at a totally different car. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE, I will never use rentalcars.com nor Europcar again.

Good experience but make sure you read the fine print
Pros: Customer service, drop off/pick up experience, clean place
Cons: Insurance coverage for cars is different than the US so read the details before you commit. Insurance coverage is mandatory and comes with a large US dollar deposit. The lower the coverage you select the higher the deposit will be.

Pros: Overall nice, clean van; excluding one malfunctioning IP light switch which made driving in the night or in the rain (lights on) difficult. Service was personable and friendly.
Cons: My Am Ex covers car rental insurance. I checked. The person attending insisted I pay for 3rd person insurance. I declined. She would only rent me the car if she secured $18,000 on the Am EX. $18k is beyond my limit. She got an extra $130 out of me.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: On kayak the vehicle specified a vw golf or similar. A car which was able to fit two suitcases. National offered a Nissan March instead, a car which I was only able to fit one suitcase in it's tiny trunk. I had to cancel cause the car did not provide what kayak offered. Very disappointed

Wrong car
Cons: We wanted a specific car. That is why we reserved it weeks in advance. We got there and they didn’t have it. So they gave us what they wanted to give us. The car was also falling apart. We had to get a whole new rental car the day after getting ours. We also asked about shuttle service and they said they had it. When I landed I’m another country they did not..

Misleading
Pros: At least it didn't break down.
Cons: Didn't have a system of picking up from airport..no shuttle, had to call repeatedly. Car was twice the price on reservation due to insurance which I could not waive. Car which was reserved was not there. Total different car was there. Only one car available. Hold was absurdly high. Took forever to get the incredibly small car they had. Car was dirty.

DECEIVING!!!
Pros: Almost nothing.
Cons: Pretty much everything. I rented a Jeep and they didn’t even own any. Gave me a Renault suv that was low in power and all scratched up. Rental pick up isn’t even near the airport, had to use a taxi to get to location. Then the price I already paid for the rental didn’t include the insurance. Paid over $350 more when I got there otherwise I couldn’t even touch the car. Overall I wouldn’t give any stars tbh. It was a hassle and very deceiving. Don’t use kayak for car rentals period. Will never make the same mistake!!!

Pros: Only thing helping my experience was that it is an American brand. Rest were fine or just good enough. The cars were no clean like in US, lot more body damage and wear tear. Language issue was a major issue. Couldn't understand most of our the conversation. But they all tried hard and on drop off one employee was fluent in English- it was helpful
Cons: Car was not well maintained, damaged and I needed to exchange it and got that the car had to be brought from my original place of rent- 200 miles & 5 hrs of drive away.

Poor service, poor communication
Pros: Although Budget may offer a low price, I would strongly recommend using a different rental car agency. Budget has extremely poor customer service, both online and especially in the store. Agents may not always recognize your rental reservation, so consider having a plan b. Overall, I was highly disappoint with my rental and will never use Budget again.

Rip off
Pros: Nothing !
Cons: I rented the car I was given a price online. I was to pay at pick up. Once I got to Mexico to pick up the car, Europcar try to charge my credit card $9,000 US Dollars for insurance protection. I declined it online because my credit card covers any theft or accidents. The gentleman at the rental place said that he needed me to send him my visas terms and conditions which I did. He then said he still needed to place a hold. Because of the large amount the bank placed a fraud alert, and shortly after he attempted to run my card for the $9,000 US dollars I saw that they had a sign in Spanish that read that if you purchase insurance with them then there would be a $5,000 Mexican pesos hold on the card. In the end because of the fraud alert and such they ended up placing the insurance I left a $700 US dollar deposit and upon return I was charged almost $200 US dollars for the vehicle which I only rented for 2 1/2 days. They overcharged me, my initial quote was for $70 US dollars. I am extremely dissatisfied. The only good news is that I called my credit card company and explained the situation and they will submit a claim so that I only pay my quoted amount. Locals told me that yes I was ripped off and that next time I should pay ahead of time rather than waiting to pay at pick up.

Cons: I had the worst service and i got the worst car, it smelled awful on the inside and it was so dirty and it wouldnt run more then 40 km. I was also given the car with an empty tank in a city that i dont know and i didnt have any nearby gas stations. With the conversión of dollars to pesos i could have gone to a junk car place instead and gotten a car of better conditions. Lastly, i do not understand how RentCars can have such a nasty company like Eurocars. I am extremly disappointed that i spent my money for such poor service and experience.

fraud!
Cons: Picking up the car took an hour because it was so slow to verify that our credit card provides insurance on our rental. I had checked ahead with our CC and printed out the information they sent in anticipation of this, but they wanted to see a policy with our name on it. After two international calls we were able to get them what they wanted. This should have been more clear ahead of time. The real problem came when dropping off the car. We told them that it had leaked some oil on my grandmother's driveway, so they could fix it for the next person. On noticing the oil, we monitored the oil level and decided to call it in if it got low. It was never too low so we enjoyed our trip. However, they accused us of damaging the car and causing the leak ourselves. My mechanic husband got below the car and saw one dent with rust on it (old damage, not due to us) and a loose bolt on the oil pan (also not our fault) with dirty oil junk that had accumulated over a long time. Within one minute of arriving, they told us the charge would be over $200 from the damage. They decided to charge us before a mechanic had looked at the car. What a pain! They obviously prey on people that don't know any better and are rushing to catch their flights. We had driven very little and had in no way damaged the car in the 30 minute drive to our destination. They were ridiculous! Avoid this company at all costs!

Pros: Despite making a reservation, they had no cars available. They did not apologize at all for it, did nothing to help us make other accommodations, and so we were stuck without a car.

Horrible experience
Pros: NOTHING
Cons: The car that we reserved and had confirmation for was not available upon arriving to pick up. This caused a lot of chaos and nerves as we were left without transportation. How can this happen when you have a confirmed reservation and are counting on having a vehicle? I've never experienced something this horrible and their customer service associates were horrible and didn't care we were left without transportation.

Never again
Pros: Made a reservation in advance but they didn't have it when I got there. Took an hour and a half to get a car which is longer than the plane ride to get to Guadalajara. The physical appearance of their facility is very poor, it's dirty, unkept. I was told to wait in a certain area for a van and waited there for 30 minutes. Finally got their facility and they sent me back to the terminal saying that I had to go upstairs. They said they didn't have a car for me. I think they overcharged me but it was Christmas, so what could I do!

Worst company in town
Pros: Nothing at all
Cons: I made my reservation from this site for a full size sedan preferably a Optima since that is what the listing said, OPTIMA. A few days after reservation I purchased the insurance through the website since it was a pretty decent deal. Well at my arival apparently a Kia Optima means a small VW Jetta with bunch of scratches and the airbag light on. I showed her the listing and it said Kia Optima or similar full size, welll to them, a Kia Optima is not a full size but a Luxury category which costs waaaay more. The teller did not want to take the insurance I purchased prior but gave me two choices, I either purchase their insurance since for them the insurance I purchased was not a valid insurance or leave a $5,000 dollar deposit in guarantee if something happens to the car they will fix from those $5,000 dlls. Really? My first and my last rental from this company, hands down. P.s. The insurance they charged me was almost $300 dlls. Awesome!!!

False Advertisement, I will never recommend ACE car rental
Pros: Nothing;
Cons: horrible customer service it took over 2 hrs to get a vehicle, the vehicle I paid ACE was never carried by MEX rent a car (false advertisement), when I asked for a full refund the representative claimed she could not issue a refund, a supervisor from Mex rent a car told me to temporarily take a Toyota Camry (after making me miss an important meeting) and that they would deliver an SUV to me, as soon as one became available (empty promise).

Top tips for renting a car in Guadalajara

  • Planning on picking up a rental car for your trip to Guadalajara? If your flight lands at Guadalajara International Airport then you will find the airport’s various car rental desks in the main hall of Terminal 1.
  • One of the more unique features of parking in Guadalajara is that you are often expected to tip for parking. Specifically, you will commonly see people guiding drivers to parking spaces nearby and, although they are not a professional service, they still expect a tip for their work.
  • Traffic circles, or glorietas, as they are known as in Mexico, are a key feature of driving in Guadalajara. They are very common and can be quite intimidating for new drivers because traffic may be moving quickly and apparently dangerously through them. However, they are simple enough affairs as long as you drive defensively and know ahead of time where you are going.
  • Rush hour in Guadalajara, like in many major cities in the world, is no joke. Drivers not wanting to get stuck in traffic are advised to avoid the daily rush hour if possible. In general, the morning rush hour goes from 6:30 a.m. and lasts until 9:30 a.m. or even 10:00 a.m. As for the afternoon and evening peak, it starts at around 5:30 p.m. and finishes up at around 8:00 p.m. One of the main avenues to avoid during rush hour in Guadalajara is the Anillo Periferico, as it is among the worst roads hit by congestion.
  • Book your rental car in Guadalajara at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
