Ras..Support fast and in English. Easy return but in Spanish. Friendly staff. Car complies with the resa. Only prices are exaggerated. A tiny car at almost 100 th a day is really expensive compared to other cities in Argentina. This is the most important rental I had during my stay

I rented my EuropCar in El Calafate, Argentina and intended to drive it across the border into Chile and back. Because I have done this in the past, I knew that I would need special cross-border papers. It would be good if, in a location like El Calafate where many people want to drive into Chile, you would warn people that they need special paperwork. Because I already knew, I submitted my request that the paperwork be ready to EuropCar. I talked to a lot of unhelpful people via email. First they directed me to a Chile Europecar email address. Then to an Argentine one. I sent in my request and heard NOTHING back. Time was running out and if I didn't have the paperwork it was going to ruin my vacation plans. I checked again and was told they didn't receive my first request. Now it was within the 96 working hours they said they needed to prepare the paperwork. I asked THREE times if the paperwork would be ready and got no reply. Finally someone told me not to worry. The people in your head office were unhelpful and DIDN'T CARE about helping me. They ignored what I was asking and didn't take responsibility. On the other hand, your representatives at your office at the El Calafate airport were wonderful. They were fast, friendly and efficient. They told me I needn't have worried about the paperwork because it's only an issue when they run low on approved cars, rarely. I ended up worrying a LOT for nothing. My car rental went perfectly once I dealt with them. I only wish the people at your head offices cared as much as the guys in the office at the El Calafate airport. I'll have to think long and hard before I rent from EuropCar again. If I have to deal with the head office, I'll go with another company.

We would not rent for this Avis location again. We went with Avis for its reputation. However, we had to wait for well over 1 hour to pick up the car even though there was only 1 customer ahead of us. The tires on the car were bald in places. They key was badly bent. When we returned the car the office was locked, There were no instructions about where to to park the car so we had to ask a Hertz agent who was helpful. We returned the car three days ago and have yet to recieve an acknowledgment.

Before you begin on your El Calafate vacation, go over a few items prior to leaving the car rental lot. You should take time to:

  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
