We try to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. However, reserving your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in El Calafate is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Avis's policy to know if there is an additional cost for you.
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit El Calafate. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their El Calafate trip can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In Argentina you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Avis. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Avis does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to El Calafate. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Avis rental topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back to Avis.
El Calafate definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Avis usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
