Has anyone had any experience getting a rental car across the border to Portrero Chico? Found cheap tickets into San Antonio, and will be driving from there.

I know a bus is an option, but we have enough people going to make a car feasible.

I know it's doable because my daughter and her husband rented a car in Laredo once that they were allowed to bring down here. I don't remember any details, though.

I've driven rental cars to Mexico, though not to Portrero Chico. Although most rental car companies don't allow it, a handful do. I don't recall which ones those are, but you can call around or check on the Web. I had to pay a higher rental fee that included mandatory Mexican insurance. Don't even think about driving a rental car into Mexico without written approval of the rental car company. It is serious crime in Mexico.

As always Ed, you are a wealth of Portrero info. Much appreciated. A group of about 4 of us are coming down in February. Looking forward to it.

Thanks for the input, the thought had crossed my mind of just going for it, but then thought better of it. Enterprise in San Antonio is closed today, I have an account with them. Hertz specifically says you can drive over, so they are an option.

I found cheeeeeap airfare into San Antonio so any added cost for a car is alright.
