im just not sure about how to go about this this will be my first time renting a car
In the case of Mexico, you must buy your insurance at the desk..
As you have no doubt read, Mexico has its own unique rules and regulations when it comes to car rental. In a nutshell, some of the cheapest online rental car deals can be found in Mexico, as low as $2 a day in some instances.
What you must factor on top of any online price quoted, from any provider, is the mandatory insurance that must
be purchased at the desk.
There are NO OTHER alternate methods of obtaining insurance. No other types of insurance will be recognised. Therefore you must budget between $ 10-20 per day extra, depending on which level of insurance you choose.
Each car type and supplier and location may offer different levels of insurance, simply click on the link IMPORTANT INFORMATION next to the photo of the car of your choice, to view the insurance options.
I hope that helps.
