Car rental location Puerto Vallarta International Airport

Location information for Puerto Vallarta International Airport

Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport is a refurbished facility which serves the Mexican coastal resort of Puerto Vallarta. The airport is located a little north of the city and handles more than two million passengers each year. Most international flights depart for the USA, but there are also direct flights to Canada and the Netherlands.

Puerto Vallarta Airport facilities

Taxis are readily available on arrival, but it can be difficult to distinguish official providers from the more annoying touts. As such, car hire in Puerto Vallarta Airport is a good option. The airport has improved security clearance facilities since its refurbishment, but queues can still be quite lengthy when two flights arrive at the same time. Porters are available at the airport.

Puerto Vallarta Airport excursions

Puerto Vallarta's best-known attraction is the Vallarta Botanical Gardens, located on a hillside 12 miles from the resort. Besides enjoying the gardens, guests can visit the on-site restaurant and visitor centre, or even go swimming in the river. Farther afield, car rental in Puerto Vallarta Airport allows guests to reach the beaches at Punta del Burro and Veneros.

Best time to visit

Puerto Vallarta's main festival takes place in November each year and features concerts, wine tastings and gala dinners among its high-brow events. It's worth looking up the major Mexican holidays before booking a trip, as Puerto Vallarta is just as popular with local tourists as it is with visiting foreigners and can therefore get overcrowded at these times. Diving is best from June to December due to better water visibility at this time, but as temperatures hover between 21 and 28°C year-round, it is possible to visit Puerto Vallarta at any time of year.

Car rental in Puerto Vallarta Airport

Taxis are plentiful in Puerto Vallarta, but speeding drivers and unsafe vehicles lead many guests to compare car hire before landing and then to self-drive on arrival. Well-maintained toll roads connect key locations in this part of Mexico, but lesser roads waiver in quality. Avoid night driving here altogether.

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 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?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

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).
