Choosing a Car Rental Agency in Cancun

We need to rent a car in May and would like advice on which agency to choose. We will be flying into Cancun and staying at Soliman bay just north of Tulum. I have seen some posts that suggest renting off site to avoid airport fees. I have also read that we should get a quote online beforehand and purchase all insurance. I have also seen various posts regarding certain agencies but the bottom line is that I am more confused than I was before I started. If any of you could give my an unbiased recommendation on who to rent from I would really appreciate your input. Thanks in advance!

We rent a car every year when we go. We have used Thrifty car rental and Cancun car rental. No problem with either. Be sure to get the insurance. Sometimes it is cheaper to rent off airport, you have to check the prices on line. Either way, they will come and pick you up at airport and bring you back for free.

I've rented a couple of times from Avis and Thrifty with no trouble whatsoever. I suggest you look for some way to get a discount ie ask for corporate rate, check your credit card benefits, etc and that you put the rental on a credit card that will cover the insurance. Just be sure to go over the car with a fine tooth comb when you pick it up and have them make note of every liitle defect inside & out.
