kayak rent a car

I went on the Kayak site just to see some prices. I chose Alamo and received a quote of 4 usd per day. Then added an insurance package for 99usd. Total for 10 days 145 usd. Seems way to low. I also noticed an asterisk. *May not include mandatory insurance charges required for certain international rentals.
Has anyone encountered this and do the mandatory insurance charges double the price?
 
I have a reservation with caribbean car rental so this was just for comparing.

I wouldn't trust that.  $145 for 10 days seems incredibly cheap.

Thats what I thought. You probably get to the desk and they hit you up for 20 more dollars per day in insurance

It is suggested that you go straight to the website  of who you plan on renting with. Kayak, **** etc is not the way to book in Mexico. They will usually laugh at you... even with a print out, and say they will not honor the price of a 3rd party website. $35-$45 a day for an economy car w full/insurance is a more likely price.
