Top tips for hiring a car at Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Intl airport

  • Car rental at Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Intl Airport is a convenient way to leap into Guerrero right away. As with most car rentals in international airports, you have a broad array of choices from economy cars, compact minis, premium, and luxury vehicles when you book through KAYAK. Pick your best ride depending on your needs. Minivans and midsize SUVs come in handy for family vacations, while convertibles are more appropriate for romantic getaways to Ixtapa.
  • To book a car at Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo International Airport (ZIH), enter your pick-up and drop-off location in our search toolbox (and the travel dates). Select a different drop-off location if you need a one-way car rental. Note that most one-way trips come with a surcharge. Once you hit the search button, you'll get a list of the available cars based on price, proximity to the airport, and our recommendations. Scroll through the agencies listed on our site to see what works best for you.
  • The best part of booking an Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Intl Airport car rental through KAYAK is that you can refine your search results by capacity, mileage, fuel policy, and payment type. The capacity entails both the number of passengers and bags that the vehicle can accommodate. As for the payment type, you can choose between the 'pay now' and 'pay at the rental counter' options. If limited mileage doesn't meet your travel needs, just tick the box with 'unlimited mileage'.
  • Thanks to the convenient location of the return areas at ZIH Airport, you should drop off your rental car with minimum fuss. The parking lots are situated next to the national and international arrivals halls. What if your travel plans suddenly change and you have to rethink when and where to drop off the vehicle? It would be wrong to assume that the rental company will refund you for the unused days or fuel. On the other hand, late returns will simply add an extra cost to your car rental bill.
  • Book your car hire at Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Intl airport at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Friendly, didn't try to gouge me on price

Cons:

Maybe offer all the insurance options rather than start with the most expensive. either way he wasn't pushy

2.0 Poor

KAYAK

Cons:

The rate is very low but you have to insure your car trough them! In order not to take their insurance, which cost 10X the rent of the car, is to bring a letter signed by Credit Card company taking care of the insurance (not the Credt Card contract - a specific letter) & THEN they will charge the total price of the car until is return. It's very sad that they promote this car company - KAYAK please stop promoting them!

Cons:

They Clip you for the insurance and that makes renting three times more costly then the price per day which is quoted.

The cost of the rental ended up being twice what we were quoted through Kayak because of a mandatory insurance charge. Upon return they charged us an additional $40 for them to vacuum sand from the cars floor. Both pick up and return were painfully slow like the staff had never been through the process before. I would never recommend this to anyone. You failed us Kayak.

The car was fine I just don’t like getting extorted on insurance. I have my credit card insurance that covers everything but they would not let me leave unless I paid there insurance which is extremely high. I realized it was a scam once the started to negotiate on there price as it was not a fixed price.

Pros:

Car was newer and in ok shape.

Cons:

Please be aware that taxes are an extra 35% on top of the agreed to price. Plus the very expensive insurance they make you buy. You might as well double the rate on the rental.

8.4 Very Good

Apr 2017

KAYAK

Cons:

They don't tell you the insurance cost 5 times the rental fee. In other words, I was quoted an online rental fee of around $106. Then I was told at point of purchase, the counter that the insurance on top of that would be an additional $400.

Hertz reserved a luxury car for me, upon arrival they did not have a luxury car available, They only had a compact car and tried to charge me the same as a luxury car. Additionally hertz was charging me $600 additional US dollars for a total of $1,100 for a 1 week rental. I went to save u car for a total of $400 per week rental for a VW Vento including full insurance. Plus Herrz representative was rude & unprofessional. Will never consider Hertz ever again.

If you are limited in speaking it may be diffcult.I am a Spanish speaker so it is fine. Do not buy their insurance if your credit card covers you out of the country. You will need to buy liability insurance.
