Important information about Mérida car rentals

Can I drive to other states, regions, or countries with a rental car from Merida?

With car rentals in Merida, Mexico, you may want to cross over state lines as part of your trip. It is vital that you check policies with your car rental company before you set off though, as there are conditions that will need to be agreed upon at least 48 hours beforehand. Larger companies such as Avis, Budget, Hertz, Dollar and Thrifty do allow such a service with the correct documentation arranged beforehand. Smaller rental companies will be restricted in their pick-up service and may not allow for cross-state or border travel. You will need an extension of protection contract and a letter from the car rental locations in Merida stating this nature of travel is allowed. Additionally, you may also be limited in your car choice, as many companies do not allow luxury car rentals to travel across borders.

Can you rent a car in Merida without a credit card?

Although car rentals in Merida will favor payment by credit card by most companies, there are ways that you can pay by debit card and, in a few cases, even cash. The reasons credit cards are favored are mostly insurance and deposit-based, and the rewards for you when looking for a Merida car rental will be greater. However, many large, established companies will allow debit cards with a few additional conditions. Avis allows debit card payments depending on location, so airport-based rentals will be better as tourists will have proof of return with flight tickets. Alamo also likes to see return tickets for tourists with cheap car rentals in Merida and will therefore allow debit card payments. Budget allows debit cards but may request an additional refundable deposit. You will also have luck with the car rental companies Dollar and Enterprise. Please note that most of them will want the driver to be over 25 years of age and additional identification may be requested too, so check beforehand with your car rental provider to ensure you can get the payment method you need.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Merida?

With car rentals in Merida, you will be driving on the right-hand side of the road. If you are used to being on the left side, go slowly until you feel confident. Ensure all passengers in the car, even in the backseat, are wearing seat belts. Drinking and driving is strictly against the law in all parts of Mexico; there is a 0.08% blood limit. If you see oncoming vehicles flashing lights at you, it is a local way of warning you about an upcoming obstruction. You will find that streets can get extremely narrow and it is not uncommon for one car to drive on the pavement to allow another through. Animals also roam quite freely in Mexico, even in suburban areas, and you may find them hard to see at night. Look out for speed bumps, known locally as ‘topes.’ Not always marked, they sometimes appear unexpectedly and can do damage to the underside of a fast-traveling vehicle.

What documents does an international traveler need to rent a car in Merida?

If you are looking for economy car rentals in Merida, there will be certain official documents that you will need to take along when collecting the vehicle. Government-approved identification, such as a passport or identification card, is a must. You will need a valid driver’s license that has been held for no less than one year and the appropriate driving permit if driving in Merida as a tourist. If you are paying by debit card, you may need to show proof of return flight; alternatively, a credit card with enough credit for the deposit, insurance and cost of the vehicle rental should be enough to see you on your way.
