Why go?

Arrange Mexico car rental with TravelSupermarket and create your ideal holiday in the sun...

With a choice of airports, including Cancun (CUN), Mexico City (MEX), Puerto Vallarta (PVR), Cozumel (CZM) and Acapulco (ACA), it's easy to hire a car and tour the Yucatan, Oaxaca, Monterrey, Vera Cruz, Guadalajara and Baja California.

Mexico is appealing year-round but the beaches tend to be most popular between October and May. Although the rest of Mexico is almost always hot, some of the mountainous regions are cooler during the winter months.

In high season, Mexico car hire is the best way to escape the crowds and find a quiet area of beach of your own. It's also the only real way to see some of the more remote ruins and monuments. In most areas, the roads are excellent and you'll have no problems, but if you're planning to drive into more distant areas, it's a good idea to check the website of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for the latest advisory notices.

You can hire a car from any of the main airports and, to prevent you from having to double back on yourself, it's also possible to hire the vehicle at one location and return it to another. Many visitors choose to hire a VW Beetle, which has become an iconic symbol of Mexico's roads. As well as airport collections, you can pick up your car rental at downtown locations in Mexico's urban areas. Booking car hire in advance of your stay gives you the widest range of options and is the best way to secure a cheap deal.
