leanne, we usually dont get the insurance on car rentals either, but in mexico it can be different, and in another thread i was advised that they often collect "cash only" insurance fees when you arrive to pick up the car, regardless of if you have already paid in full prior to traveling to mexico. so it could end up being no big deal, BUT it could be a big deal as well, if you kwim :)

      My in-laws are renting a car when we get there and we are all traveling together so we'll ride w/ them down to Akumal. Although for our TTD day we'll be renting a car for the day so we can drive around for great ttd spots. We will be renting from TSA Reservations. I will let you know what i find out about the car.

      here is info they gave us thus far. For Airport transportation:

      From 1 to 3 people: $90 usd one way and $170 usd round trip.
      From 4 to 7 people: $110 usd one way and $210 usd round trip.
      From 8 to 10 people: $150 usd one way and $290 usd round trip.
      They also have a bus from the airport to Akumal for 50 people and is $1600 roundtrip

      We are planning a couple trips for our guests. One day we will be going to Tulum so the fares from Akumal to Tulum are:

      10 person van is $140 roundtrip per van
      50 person bus is $650 roundtrip

      Then another day to Coba:

      10 person van is $270 roundtrip per van
      50 person bus is $1080 roundtrip


      They have 2 websites:

      Airport transportation
      Travel services in akumal and Riviera Maya

        We used cancuntransfers.com as well and they were great! Can't remember the exact price, but I remember it was reasonable...
        AND, they were also VERY good about all our group's different arirval and departure times:-)

          leanne (and anyone :) ) i emailed alamo (we were going to use them, probably not now but we are still kind of undecided haha, day to day!) and they wrote back and said:

          Thank you for contacting Alamo Rent A Car.

          That price does not include the Personal Liability Insurance. In Mexico, PLI is mandatory at a cost of $10 per day. Liability coverage of up to $75,000 applies to all accident related expenses not pertaining to the rental vehicle. If your rental company will cover you in Mexico, we would require letterhead from that company, with contact information, in order to have this charge not added to your bill.

          Thank you,

          Chris

          FYI :) this is alamo, idk if it is EXACTLY the same at all car rental agencies in MX, or just alamo's policy (the PLI thing, who's policy, alamo or MX?) anyways, i just thought i'd share :)

            If your rental company will cover you in Mexico? Isn't ALAMO the rental company? Do you think they mean insurance?

              When we went down for a site visit in February we booked a private transfer even though a group transfer was included in our Apple package b/c I had read stories of it taking up to 3 hours to get to our hotel due to the group charter stopping at so many other resorts. I was referred to AGI through my resort's forum and I was very pleased with them. They even stopped by the 7-11 so that we could pick up some cervezas. Anyways, I pulled up their website and they seem to have dropped their rates - they are super cheap now. Here is the link:

                We reserved a private shuttle through Cancun Airport Transfers/USA Transfers.

                $125 Round Trip to The Royal in Playa del Carmen for up to 10 people.

                I feel that this is a great deal.
