Drop off charges seem to be high in Mexico, I think because auto rental isn't all that popular a thing for Mexicans to do. So, you're in a one-way rental situation whereby the company needs to pay someone to return the car to the D.F. for them. Why are you renting, instead of taking a bus? Good reason, I hope - but busses are exellent and relatively inexpensive.

Hi! We are just back rom a wonderful trip tp the colonial heartland (Queretaro, whihc we REALLY LOVED!, Guanuajuato, San Miguel and Mexico City), and we highly recommend the "Primera Plus" bus which goes straight from the Mexico City Airport to Queretaro, avoiidng the trip to the Terminal del Norte. It runs every 30 minutes until 5 pm, and it costs about 20 dollars per person, time 3.30 hours. In Queretaro you could then be picked up by a San Migule van, somebody elsle will have to give you a recommendation. Otherwise there are plenty of busses between Mexico City Terminal del Norte and San Miguel, but a bit more hassle. We travellld with Primera Plus all over and we can only recommend them: 800 numbre for booking, credit cards accepted, reserved seats, air conditioned, reliable, reclinable seats, food and drinks, excellent drivers! Enjoy!
