Be aware, don't tell we didn't warn you.
I booked online, believing they were one of the only ones that give you true rates.
Well they don't.
The rate on the booking from was about 190 $ for a week in Cancun, baby seat, taxes and insurance included. So that seemed good to me.
Upon arrival at the airport, Dollar car rental sends out a van to pick you up and take you away from the airport and their competition counters, to their office, far away from the airport terminal.
Once there, of course there's no way back, they got you.
They tell you that you can buy extra insurance to cover all risks, and the total price suddenly rises to more than 400 $ !!!!!
So i said i didn't want that extra insurance, and then they asked me to pay 5000 $ of guarantee. Nobody carries that and few people have such spare money on their credit card (it has to be on one card), so there is no other choice than to pay !
They invoice you in dollars, even tough we asked for pesos, because we were in Mexico, and we only carried pesos. We lived in Mexico that time.
My advice: don't be tricked into prebooking Dollar Car Rental, better avoid them for life.
After one week, when we returned, they came up with the final invoice and guess what: they converted the dollar invoice to pesos at an outrageous rate of more 15 pesos to the dollar, and THEN made us pay in pesos!!! (Normal rates those days were 12.6 tot 13.0.)
DON'T RENT A CAR AT DOLLAR CAR RENTAL !!!
