Last year we rented from Thrifty at the Cozumel Iberostar and took all of the insurance packages. We were asked to sign a blank accident report form. I did and had no issues with the vehicle and got the same form back after the rental. Signing a blank form made me very nervous and I don't want to do that again. Has anyone else been asked to sign a blank form? I e-mailed Thrifty about that and they said to call the location to ask about their policies.

perhaps they have changed the policy in the year since you have rented from them.

I can see absolutely no business or personal reason for having anyone sign any document prior to use.

Who says they are going to use that signed document by you on the vehicle you rented, at the time you rented?

Unless there is a compelling reason to sign such a document, I would have declined, and gone elsewhere.

I called the location today and asked them about this policy. The agent said it was required to fill out the form. Where else is a good place to rent there?

I will check it out with Thrifty on Friday at the airport. We have not been asked to sign this before and I won't now. I will speak with Carmen and try to see if we can get clarification. If they require it, I will just use Isis again.

No way! That would be a deal breaker.

This was at the Iberostar location, not the airport.

it should not make any difference where the vehicle is pick up from. That would be a dead giveaway if one rental site does not require this signed accident report, and the other did.

There are plenty of rental agencies on the island...it depends on the type of vehicle you want, and what your budget is.

BUY THE FULL INSURANCE COVERAGE...

I got in trouble at the local park for lining all the squirrels up in order of height, they didn't like me critter sizing.

If you are wanting to rent a vehicle go online and reserve do not wait until you get to Cozumel airport. You get a better deal this way and then the timeshare sales people will leave you alone if you already have a reservation. They always try to get you that way by saying 20.00 a day rental fee for a car.
