Guatemala is a thriving tourist destination. Travelers who want to explore as much as they can during their stay may opt to arrange cheap car hire in Guatemala online before they arrive in order to take advantage of discounts.

The best vehicle to use around Guatemala is a 4 x 4, especially if you intend to go on driving trips during the rainy season (around April to October). Provincial trips also necessitate 4 x 4 vehicles as many roads are unpaved; you may also encounter a lot of dirt roads. This is why it is essential to book car hire in Guatemala ahead of time, to ensure that you can get the vehicle of your choice.

Driving is easy because the rules and regulations are very similar to US and European laws. All you need is your valid driver's license; however, if you can secure an additional international document, you can avoid discussions with the police.

The driving style of locals here is quite easy to adapt to. Guatemalans are known for being able to handle traffic situations well; in fact, there are few serious road accidents here. Car rental in Guatemala typically comes with free towing and roadside assistance, so there is no need to worry should the vehicle fail.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Car-Rentals.com the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
