KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in San José del Cabo

  • With limited public transportation options, a good way to ensure you get the most out of your visit is to book a San José del Cabo car rental. A vehicle puts beaches, the city center and excursions—like zip-lining—all within reach. What’s more, a personal vehicle also makes it easy to cart around whatever gear or materials you’ll need to take with you for a full day of adventure—no having to head back to the hotel to pick something up.
  • For those of you who have secured a car rental in San José del Cabo through KAYAK, you can find it ready and waiting for you at the airport when you land. At the Los Cabos International Airport (SJD) there are service desks for many major car rental companies, including Ace, Economy, U-Save, and Europcar, to name just a few. To pick up your car, head to the baggage claim area, which is located in Terminal 2, then check in at the rental car company’s service desk. The service team here will direct you to your vehicle’s location.
  • To reduce the pace at which drivers travel along San José del Cabo’s roadways, the city has implemented speed bumps and speed divots. For this reason, you’ll want to keep your eyes on the road at all times to ensure you and your vehicle aren’t jostled by these roadway features. While driving, you’ll also discover that locals may become impatient with drivers unfamiliar with the roads, so be sure you check your review mirror for any motor vehicles looking to overtake you, and just let them pass.
  • San José del Cabo is an especially tourist-focused city and, because of this, you’re less likely to encounter rush hour traffic in the timeframes before and after a normal 9am-to-5pm workday. However, you may sometimes find roadways a bit more congested around 6am to 7am, then again around 5pm to 6pm.
  • Book your rental car in San José del Cabo at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in San José del Cabo are around 33% more expensive than other car types, on average

Insights shared by verified travellers who rented a car in San José del Cabo 
Verified travelerFeb 2024
We drove North to Los Barriles. Road was in good condition. Much of Baja is dirt roads though, so an SUV is highly recommended.
GregDec 2023
Make sure your pickup time is accurate and research the agency and insurance ahead of time.
Verified travelerJul 2023
If you're comfortable and capable of driving in a large American city and have good common sense and a decent sense of direction, you should be fine. Beware of livestock on the roads at night. They can cause serious accidents.
FredrickJun 2023
Driving in San Jose del Cabo was ok, but beware of the road conditions, there can be bumps and dips that are greater than they appear.
Verified travelerJul 2023
You need to get SLI $35 a day. They’ll try and push CDW. Take your time checking out the vehicle. Document everything.

Insurance is a scam. I have coverage through my credit card however they claimed I needed to present WRITTEN evidence of coverage in Mexico or would have to pay for their insurance. This was never disclosed in advance via reservation or when I called Budget to confirm reservation and any special insurance requirements.

Pros:

The car was OK, had to jump it once because it couldn't stand the radio on and the car was very weak and sounded like it had some transmission problems. But it did it's job, can't expect much from a Renault

Cons:

I made the reservation for $70 for all 5 days, thought it was a great rate. When we got there they said there was a mandatory insurance that jumped the price to OVER $250 for 5 days. Why are we booking at such a low rate and believe that is the TOTAL price as the website says then figure out we need to pay 4x the price at the spot. Then I extended for another 2 days and it was over $120 for the 2 days. Super misleading and that is definitely Kayak's fault for quoting such low rates, I wish they would honor the rate that I was quoted before I made my way to Mexico and got ripped off because I needed a car. Literally everyone was complaining about the huge insurance rates at the store.

Pros:

They didn't push the insurance too much. The place was clean. People were very respectful and prompt.

Cons:

Nov 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Location was near the airport.

Cons:

Car was advertised as $94 for a week. I was forced (not asked) to pay for extra "mandatory" insurance of $16/day. This increased the total to $204. I was told by the representative at National Car Rental at the Cabo San Lucas airport that I could not rent the car unless I paid the extra insurance fee and that it was Mandatory. None of that information was on the site where I made a reservation. I believe the representative gave me false information and I'm going to report it to the Washington Post travel section. I took pictures of the agreement I had to sign.

4.4 Mediocre

Apr 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The price I saw on my online booking! $10/day for a 2016 Chevy Malibu! Returning the car was quick and easy!

Cons:

The ACTUAL price I had to pay when I arrived because Mexican law requires the purchase of some Mandatory 3rd-Party Liability insurance which added 200% to the price of my daily rental. An additional $20/day. Customers should really be informed about this in advancen, as this can easily be taken into consideration during the online booking process. Also, my Emerald Club number was not connected to my reservation and I really had to negotiate HARD with the agent to get them to add it to my account. Was there an option to do this during the reservation? I don't recall. As a frequent National/Emerald user this was disappointing. Finally, clearing Mexican customs & immigration was less hassle, paperwork and time consuming than renting a car which I would have found hilarious if it wasn't so annoying. Would give 0 stars if I could! Also, the shuttle bus from the terminal has back doors for a reason. The staff should f***ing use them instead of piling everyone in the side, then cramming the luggage in so all the passengers are stick inside. Let the people go in and out the back DUHHHH!!! Okay... rant finished, but seriously those are legitimate points!

The car itself was clean and functioned as expected.

Cons:

I show up to Pueblo Bonito Rose on the date I scheduled my rental pick-up (the date and location had already been pre-selected) and the hotel concierge tells me that Avis is closed on Sundays. Why did the website allow me to schedule the pickup on this date? Pueblo Bonito was nice enough to call Avis' other location nearby and I spoke with Avis on the phone, they sent a guy with my rental. He said he'd be there in 10 minutes, that was a lie, I waited at least half an hour. They provide a wifi box which is kinda neat, but the guy gave it to me without a charging cable and I wasn't able to charge it, so this was only useful on the first drive, after the first day of using it, it died and was useless. He told me upfront that there was no charging cable, so I was aware of this and said ok. When I returned the car at SJD Airport, Avis asks me where the cable is. I said you guys gave me the wifi box without one. They said that because there weren't any notations of the missing cable that they would have to charge me, at this point I was pretty upset. I'm just trying to drop of my car so we can catch our flight back home and now this nonsense. Long story short I spoke with the manager and flat out told them, "no, I'm not paying for a cable that we were never provided with which made this wifi box useful for only one trip" I didn't end up having to pay for the cable but then I got screwed on having to pay for a full tank of gas when I only used 1/4 of the tank, so I might as well have paid for the stupid cable. Avis never once told me anything about extra charges for gas, I guess this can be assumed but being that this was in Mexico and the first time I rent a car there, I didn't assume the rules were the same. I would've put a few bucks worth of gas to replenish the tank had i known I was going to have to pay the full price of a tank. Terrible experience!

Pros:

The car, while it was a new car, still was not the car that we reserved. We reserved a Nissan Maxima for 4 adults and got a KIA Sorento

Cons:

This was my first use of the Kayak site and we reserved a car for a week out of Cabo. The car was not what I ordered (a smaller KIA instead of a Nissan). The real problem was that as soon as I reserved it, I received an email from an insurance company, Allianz, that offered to sell me insurance. I purchased the insurance, but ACE rental would not recognize that insurance. I had to purchase another insurance policy through them at 3 times the price or not get the car.

Pros:

Not much. Starting with the (initial) airport shuttle ("Ace badged"), which delivered me to a 35 minute wait, at the (wrong) office. Once we took (other) shuttle, I was offered a Kia "Forte"(instead of the VW Jetta-Full Size or "similar"). My reservation stated Then, instead of the $30.69USD, that my reservation stated, I was given a choice of $180.69USD (with a $2500.00USD "Hold", and final charge on my credit card), or $215.51USD, for an $800.00 "Hold", and final charge on my credit card.

Cons:

I did not appreciate the disorganization, the need to go to (2) different office locations, the waiting in line (at each of those offices), for a total of 50 minutes, the type of car that I was rented, (i.e.smaller than the car class that I reserved), or the ("Surprise!!!") additional charges that were somehow acceptable, and explained by, the "Terms and Conditions". While "Additional Charges may apply for required insurance, when the "required insurance" is 6 times the cost of the rental, something is wrong.

You are forced to purchase third-party liability insurance as your credit card coverage or your regular insurance policy is not valid in Mexico. We were aware of this coming down and we were prepared to purchase the insurance. However, $500 for third-party liability for 10 days is ridiculous. The neighbour in the condo we were staying pays $300 for the whole year for his liability insurance .

They were scamming customers. They force you to purchase their insurance for $99-150. I saw them find random things wrong with multiple cars that were being returned — it was almost like they already knew where the damage was. Don’t believe the prices, just go to enterprise or some other reputable company.

The rental price is provided in USD, with an exchange rate of 20-30% higher than the official rate. That's not the main issue. But, the fact they make you pay in Mexican pesos with the conversion rate they provide. Is not possible to pay in cash (USD/MXN), nor in the currency of your credit card (USD). Thus, they overcharge you with at least 20% more than the original price announced/agreed. This is an abusive practice, and I would recommend find another place where to rent a car, as there are plenty not doing this.

Read the reviews for MexRentACar. The same thing about the pickup/dropoff reverting to noon happened to the couple in front of me. The insurance per day happened to me. they wanted $28 per day, but I told them I had called and it was $18 dollars per day. So I ended up getting $0 deductible for any damages to the vehicle. Regardless of this, I still took detailed video of all the car, specifically in areas of prior damage. Sure enough, during inspection, they found a "new" scratch. I showed them the video and that was enough to get them off my back. Would NOT recommend MexRentACar. Another this is that I did not know I had booked with Priceline, I thought Kayak was booking agency, it's not.

Price is good, that’s the trick…..!!!!! They pick you up at the airport, is actually vans from mexcar at the airport in San Jose del cabo. When I do my reservation I paid $130 for 5 days. I ended pain $400 because insurance is not included you never know what can be wrong or what’s the condition of the car so they tell you if something went wrong with the car you are responsible for paid any damages. Full caber is $2$$ on top of what you paid on the reservation. I consider they need to be more clear with the insurance policy, they won’t take your insurance at all it even if your credit card has one.

First of all - do not buy the insurance that is sold either on this platform, or any other. It simply does not work. It meant that they denied my pre-purchased insurance, and made me purchase their absurdly expensive insurance on the spot (what choice did I have!). It's a scam! Thankfully Kayak did refund me the insurance cost after the fact, which means I'd book through this service again. But buyer beware - the insurance costs triple what the actual car rental costs, so the deal is crappy when you review it all together. My supposed $300 rental turned into almost $1200 when all was said and done (not including gas of course).

We booked a car for $140 for 6 days. I checked several times to make sure the car rental was at the airport, not with a shuttle. When we arrived, and finally found an attendant for U-Save amongst the crowd when you exit SJD (Cabo) airport, he indicated we would take a shuttle to the car rental office. We still waited 5-10 minutes for the shuttle. When we finally arrived, they said there were mandatory insurance fees of nearly $60/day, which would bring my total closer to $500–that’s more than triple the price I had reserved with. That was supposed to be the total cost. After much back and forth, they said there’s nothing they could do and that this 3rd party insurance is required in Mexico. We were almost going to agree, about to start the paperwork, then they said they would have to charge $1500 as a deposit for incidentals. This was NOT a hold, this was going to be a charge that they would refund. I’ve rented cars before and I understand a deposit for incidentals. But this amount seemed outrageously high, especially in light of the forced insurance. We decided to skip the car rental altogether and just used taxis/Uber to get around. It cost us much much less, and definitely less headache. I would never ever book with U-Save ever again. And generally be wary of renting a car in Cabo for that matter, as they just try to impose additional costs and triple the anticipated cost.

Did not rent car due to they are scammers. Get you in the door then make you buy extra insurance or you do not get car. Required purchase of extra third party insurance even though the rental details said it was optional.

You guys should no longer list them as rental options. Please do something about it. Ken Burger

Car was excellent as was service.

Cons:

I chose Payless because of price. Supposedly $175 for a weekly rental. That they agreed was the confirmed price. When I declined the insurance as I always do, since I have insurance on my credit card, I was told they would only allow this if I could produce a letter proving I had insurance from the credit card company. Or I could bring it later to one of their offices. Since I didn't have access to a printer this was not possible. Payless then charged an additional $18/day or $125 for the week for "insurance". This essentially doubled the cost. I have rented from Fiesta in downtown San Jose before at a much cheaper price. We only chose Payless since we arrived with heavy suitcases and wanted a rental car from the Los Cable airport. We won't be renting from Payless again.

We had a mechanical breakdown 70km from the rental location. Checkin was tedious with many forms and contract pages to read if one was fluent in Spanish and had an extra hour, staff was completely unhelpful and said we were “on our own” because we made a short trip on a sand road which was stated not to do, but we didn’t see this disclaimer in the contract. NO NELP AT ALL is what they told us. We managed to have a very helpful local get the car started again some problem in the system which staff of this company said was completely and totally our problem to fix. We did with the local and got back to Cabo after being stranded for 5 hours. Car did not start again and we contacted the agency who again said it was our fault and responsibility. Had another mechanic come to the hotel in the morning and managed to get it started (no promise if it would start again) and drove to airport, leaving car running while filling up the gas, and returned it. Agency stated we would be billed for this repair. Cheap agency that overcharged for insurance, had a car with 64000km, bald tires, damaged interior a/c controls and management with attitude! Strongly suggest NOT USING THIS AGENCY Routes or sister company. We won’t use this again! Very displeased to say the least!!!

They forced me to buy regular Liability Insurance (not SLI) for 20 dollars per day. This is supposed to be included in the car rental price as per car rental regulations in Mexico.You can add SLI if you want more coverage. I initially refused to pay so they would not rent me the car. I went to Budget car rental down the street and they verified the car rental fee includes the basic Liability Insurance as required by law. Of course Budget would rent me a car but at “walk-in” prices which was substantially more than the on-line deal I was supposed to get at Routes. So, I returned to Routes, told them what Budget said and they said I still had to buy Liability Insurance which I had to do. My opinion is Routes is a sham company in business to extort travelers illegally and should be shut down. I will be challenging the MasterCard charge for the car rental. Ken Burger
