Top Tips for Renting a Car in Guatemala

Travelers who enjoy exploring off-the-beaten-track roads will enjoy renting a car in Guatemala, where rural public transportion services can be slow and infrequent. The country is also on the Pan-American Highway, an iconic route that includes possible stops in Panajachel, Guatemala City, Palin, and Antigua.
Parking is an important topic to understand when renting a car in Guatemala, especially since theft and break-in rates are high. It is highly advised to not leave valuables on display in your car and to avoid parking in poorly lit urban areas when possible. Most hotels are able to offer a secure parking zone; otherwise, paid and serviced car parks are a reasonable option.
There are no laws on the use of child seats in Guatemala, but those who choose to rent a car here are advised to seat children under 12 in an age-appropriate restraint. Agencies are able to provide different sizes of seats if you book in advance, and daily fees will apply. These can vary widely, from around 23 GTQ (3 USD) per day with Budget, to 46 GTQ (6 USD) per day with Enterprise.
Most agencies allow clients who rent a car in Guatemala to travel into neighboring countries; however, additional insurance and fees are required for this service. Avis, for example, charges between 300 GTQ (30 USD) for a cross-border permit to Honduras or El Salvador, and 3845 GTQ (500 USD) for cross-border travel to Mexico.
