- Rental companies often expect you to return the hire car with roughly the same amount of fuel as when you left. Protect yourself from any possible scams by taking a photo of the fuel gauge before you hit the road.
- Look out for topes, Mexico’s somewhat torturous equivalent to speed bumps. The big ones feel like small mountains, while the little ones can send your car slipping all over the road. Keep your eyes peeled for humpy signposts and go slow. If you take these bad boys too fast, you’ll give yourself whiplash.
- If you break down, there’s a heart-warming and completely free service called Green Angels (Angeles Verdes) on hand to help. These guys cruise the highway on the hunt for drivers that have run into problems. There’s a phone number too, so if you find yourself stranded call 078 from any phone in Mexico.
