The Rental Car Industry relies on small print and fees to hide what it will cost you (Just like Most Banks and Cell Phone Calling Plans) As a result it is difficult for a consumer to obtain a legitimate quote for what a rental’s total cost is going to be. BBB’s policy differs in that we want you to know what your costs will be and have simplified our procedure to reflect this.
At BBB Contracts and Documents in English are shown in US Dollars* If payment is made with a Credit Card (We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express) then the payment will be converted to Mexican Pesos on the basis of the exchange rate in effect for the purchase of Mexican Pesos with US Dollars quoted by the CitiBanamex Bank of Mexico on the date that payment is made. Understand that this process is the same as going to a Mexican Bank or ATM Terminal and using a Credit or Debit Card to purchase enough Mexican Pesos to pay BBB Rent a Car the quoted rental price. We will allow payments of Cash in either USD for the quoted price or the Mexican Peso equivalent, however one of the many advantages of paying with a Credit Card is that the vast majority of them provide Collision Damage Waiver Insurance (CDW) that saves you the expense of having to pay us for that coverage. Debit Cards are accepted for payment as Credit Cards above but they do not offer any Insurance benefits. * Spanish documents are available on request and are shown in Mexican Pesos.
BBB Does Not Charge for: Child Seats, Additional Driver’s,10% Airport Concession Fees or associated Charges or Taxes, Mileage Restrictions, Vehicle License Fees, Vehicle Registration Fees, City, County, State, or Seasonal Surcharges. Please note that No deposit or credit card information is necessary to reserve and book from us BUT please respect the fact that Cancellations and No – Shows cost us money, the more time you give us if you have to cancel the better off we are.
BBB Does Not Rely on small print to increase your rental cost, Refuse to acknowledge or accept your Credit Card Damage and Theft Coverage, Insist on Huge Deductibles secured with frozen deposit charges on your card account, Gouge you on Peso Dollar Exchange Rates and last but not least No Timeshare Hustles or Referrals.
BBB Only Charges for 2 things, the car rental charge per day and the insurance coverage you choose. All rental contracts in Mexico are then subject to a Federal IVA tax which we collect.

When shopping Rental prices in Mexico the Per Day Rental **
Estimates . . . mean very little. If you do not have the time or desire to read all the small print in a Mexican car rental website you may want to use the following ***Triple Formula. . . . if you fill out their forms and select a vehicle for a time period and the estimate is $400.00 and you agree, when you arrive the real total charges out the door could be $1,200.00 (Triple the Estimate)

Total Rental costs in Mexico will cause “Sticker Shock” to Canadians and Americans but believe me when I say that it is as competitive here as it is there, but there are definitely higher governmental expenses and industry specific charges imposed on the rental car industry here in Mexico. Any legitimate business in any country must then pass those expenditures on to their consumers !Bienvenidos!
No business can always be the lowest for any comparable product or service. Please note and appreciate that BBB however does guarantee the accuracy of each and every cash quote that we issue and we make an effort to make it as easy to understand as we can. We also monitor the Rental Car Franchise competition’s posted prices and always charge a fraction (approximately 50%) of their average charges. You do not have to be a mathematician, an insider, relative, friend, coupon holder or a detective to get a good honest, inexpensive car rental. Just rent from BBB where we take the work and worry out of the rental of a Car, SUV or Van.
**Estimates are what everyone else offers on their sites as there are so many fees and charges that could be added it is absolutely impossible for them to tell you or for you to figure it out . . . @ BBB what we tell you - is exactly what the cash price is to rent one of our vehicles.
***Triple Formula A secretary who books many trips to Cabo told me “Hey it’s easy” just triple whatever the online booking site says. Many customers have reiterated this over and over and say it can easily exceed the Triple Formula.
