Important information about Mexico City car rentals

For getting around Mexico City, you’ll need a car. Whether it’s a car rental in Mexico City or a taxi, both are accessible and the easiest ways of seeing the iconic sights like Zócalo plaza and the beautiful Palacio de Bellas Artes. There are over 30 car rental locations in Mexico City. Take your rental car in Mexico City down the Paseo de la Reforma boulevard and to the famous colorful Frida Kahlo Museum on the outskirts of the city. Having your own car will allow you to get around and take day trips from the Mexican capital. Parking in downtown Mexico City isn’t easy but you can reserve spots at garages online. Driving around Mexico is safe, but we recommend just avoiding taking your rental car around at night.

Is it worthwhile to rent a car while visiting Mexico City?

Apart from the main city attractions, there are so many sights to see on a short drive out. The Teotihuacan Pyramids are an important site dating back to the Aztecs. You can get there in your Mexico City car rental in a little over an hour. Along with the pyramids, the Xochimilco canals, built by the Aztecs, are under an hour away from the city center. Finding a cheap car rental in Mexico City should not be a problem. The only difficult part may be finding parking in the city. Nonetheless, having a car rental in Mexico City will allow you to take day trips from the center and make sure your trip to Mexico City is complete. The city is walkable within the different neighborhoods; the difficult part is getting around between these areas. Keep in mind Mexico City-Querétaro 57D is the busiest highway in all Mexico. It’s the most direct way into the capital from the north.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind while driving in Mexico City?

We’ve compiled a series of laws and tips for when you’re driving your car rental in Mexico City. We recommend you drive mainly while it’s light out, especially if you have a luxury car rental in Mexico City. Nighttime drives in Mexico can get confusing, especially when not in the city center. In Mexico they use the metric system so all speed limit signs and distance indications will be in kilometers. If you’re traveling in Mexico City from the United States, bear in mind that right turns on red are not legal. Many intersections in the country are replaced with traffic circles, so avoid distractions and yield to the cars already circling. If you plan on having a drink, we recommend not drinking and driving. The legal blood-alcohol content while driving is under 0.08%. Bear in mind we suggest checking in with Mexico City’s department of motor vehicles to be sure there aren’t any changes in the traffic laws.

Will I need a special driver’s license or permit to drive a rental car in Mexico City if I’m visiting from another country?

You shouldn’t be required to present a special permit like the International Driver’s Permit when renting your car in Mexico City as long as your driver’s license is in English. If not, you should have an IDP just in case. Depending on the car rental agency, you may have trouble picking up your vehicle.
