    So confused. I heard Thrifty and Hertz are no longer at Airport but they still show up on there websites. Heard Budget is there but when booking it states not at airport.

    Any realtime info would be appreciated.

    Alamo and Budget are outside the airport on the avenue in front of the airport.

    Fox and Thrifty are outside the terminal but on airport property, to the left as you exit the terminal building.

    Avis and Hertz are inside the arrival terminal.

    I believe Ace Rental is Thrifty.
    Missing from list is Mex Rent a Car - located in terminal?

    Thrifty closed its location inside the airport parking lot recently. Now, only Fox is in the parking lot. Avis and Hertz are inside the terminal building. Alamo and Budget are on the airport boulevard in front of the airport. FlexiRent has a location west of the roundabout at 65th.

    There is no Mex or Ace at or near the airport.

    Mex says that they are just outside the terminal on the left.

    Well, if you go looking for a sign that says "Mex Rent a Car" or some such in or near Cozumel's airport, you will never find one.

    When I asked them, the rental company Fox says they also use the name Mex online, but they don't advertise or use that name in Cozumel. Fox is the company I said was inside the airport grounds but not inside the terminal.

    Look for Fox not Mex.

    That's so f***ed up. Why wouldn't Mex say this on their website
    Rent a car in Cozumel Airport - Mex Rent a Car

    ...or in my email reservation confirmation, or during my online chat with them yesterday?!
    This makes no sense to me. Also getting a little nervous renting from them.
    when I arrive at Fox will it be a brand new reservation from a different company, on different terms?!

    I called the number on the Mex website and asked exactly where their office in Cozumel was located. They said "at the airport". I asked "exactly where at the airport?" She repeated "at the airport". I asked if she was in a call center. She said yes, she was. I asked her for the phone number of the Cozumel office and she gave it to me, once I told her why I wanted to verify the exact location.

    When I called the number, they answered "Fox Rentals". I asked if this was "Mex Rentals", and they told me Mex was the same company, but they went under the name Fox in Cozumel.

    They guys working at the Cozumel Fox location are OK; I wouldn't worry any about the reservation being honored.

    Have a fun trip. Get all the insurance they offer.
