  1. I used the AA rental car portal back in September for a trip to Cancun, they had the best rates of various I compared on that trip, in that case through National.

    Be aware of the mandatory liability insurance imposed by the government that can as much as double daily net cost. Not all agencies list that at time of reservation but it will be waiting to greet you at pick up.

  2. I used a same promo for CUN in May 2011. I declined all insurance since I had AMEX PLAT premium insurance $19.95/rental. They let me take the car without insurance. They did not honor rate plus Hertz Gold Upgrade, one or the other, you do not get point for rentals in MX.

    Information about insurance in MX is very murky, blogs present contradicting info, at the end, people get confused and just pay for it. IMO it is a cash cow. When you speak spanish they figure it is harder to convenice you to get insurance, it is a lot easier to “convince” gringos to buy insurance.

    • @ ORD-TGU – Thanks for the info. I would have assumed that I could take the upgrade and earn the rate.

      It’s good to know that the insurance isn’t mandatory if the customer has other coverage. That’s probably something most people don’t know. I didn’t. And in Mexico, the rules can be a little opaque.

      Appreciate the comment!
