Another rental car thread.....

My turn.  So my daughter Shannon works for Enterprise, and she made me a reservation for a car from National for $43 for the week.  Car class is intermediate 4-door/automatic/air.  That price does not include the DW insurance which is posted on the reservation at $10 a day.  It also states that Third Party Liability is required in MX but it does not post the per day cost.  Anybody have any idea how much that is?  And my last (hopefully) question is....we fly out at 7 a.m. and the rental car desk doesn't open til 7.  Anybody used the "drop off box" in CUN?  Or do they even exist?  She thinks I'm nut's for being skeptical, but she hasn't travelled to Mexico enough!!! LOL
I'm sorry for another thread on rental cars, but the previous ones I found were fairly old, with the newest being 2012.  I know there are more current posts, but I couldn't locate them.

A few recent car threads 
 
From 2 days ago

So a warning: Do not RENT from a 3rd party or US rental agency like Enterprise/National
 
Many of us deal directly with the MX rental agency (Easyway or Caribbean)
 
They quote ALL the insurance
 
Works out to $35 + US a day
 
Can you cancel
 
Book elsewhere or the car agency will "demand" 30-50$ extra per day for insurance in their office

Don't use Easy way, Gmadeb. Really!

I used Carribean/American 2 weeks ago and was very frustrated with the "check-in" and get out of the office process.  didn't get the car I reserved and was basically told "take it or leave it".  also, they were much better at checking the vehicle over upon my return than I was when I took possession.  just sayin............

Bummed to hear this ntsochp2. I had such a good experience a few weeks ago. I was super excited after my bum experiences lately with Easy Way. I'm hoping this was a rare thing. Sorry it was not a good experience for you.
