Cancun International Airport (CUN)
Car Hire / Rental
The busy Cancun International Airport (CUN) is located on the mainland portion of Cancun and is easily accessible via the 307 major road. Driving around the region is a pleasant experience yielding some fantastic sights, and many visitors choose to hire cars in the city itself, in order to make the most of their trip.
Reserving a hire car in advance of your trip to Mexico will ensure that you get the exact make and model of vehicle that best suits your driving requirements. While car rental is available on arrival at Cancun airport, we recommend that you pre-book a vehicle ahead of your arrival, so as to avoid any possible disappointment with rates or vehicle availability. Also worth noting, some car hire agencies in Cancun and Mexico as a whole do not provide on-the-spot rental, and also expect to be paid by credit card.
