Used AutoEurope in Mexico?

Jump to last reply

I know there are positive experiences on this forum renting cars using AutoEurope, so wondered if anyone has tried them in Mexico with good results? AutoEurope is offering excellent rates in Mexico, at least a third off what the big companies offer directly. Prepaying with AutoEurope also avoids a currency scam every company uses in Mexico: they do not allow online reservations in pesos, only US dollars, and then they claim at rental time that they can only rent in pesos, converting to pesos at a poor rate they determine resulting in about a 10% markup (like DCC). Even trying to get at the reservations pages navigating in Spanish on the Mexican car rental websites (xxxxx.com.mx) will only give US $ rates. Another scam in place is they only will waive CDW insurance charges and let you use your credit card insurance if you agree to a timeshare presentation. Maybe this kind of thing could be avoided by prepaying, which AutoEurope offers.

So any good Mexican AutoEurope experiences out there?
