Partner and I are looking to rent a car for 13 days to drive around Yucatan. Budget appears to be the cheapest by far and that includes yucatancarrentals.com/easywayrentacar.com (almost identical websites) They're "asking" $144 for 13 days (cheapest car) and I know that's the base rate. Add $15.00 a day for mandatory insurance and tax it comes to $411. Is that an "ouch"?
The proprietor of the hotel we're staying in, warned me to be careful of "hidden charges" that Budget nails people with. I'm wondering if anyone has any knowledge of fees beyond insurance/taxes that rental places use. I'm wondering if people are getting a "bait/switch" on the insurance. When they get there, they're (me) told they (me) must have the most expensive package or they (me) can't rent a car. Do I need anything beyond liability insurance. It's annoying to start with $144 and watch it zoom to $411 (at least)
