My experience over all was good; thecarwas in good condition,clean and everything worked. However, at pickup we had arrived late due to the flight on which we arived. We had the Eurocar agent at the airport call the Airport call the agent in in Puerto Montt to see if we could pick our car there, and we were informed that there was not one available at the airport. So we went to the Eurocar agent in town per our original request. The agent was very polite and fulfilled our request after he informed us that our reservation had expired and we would to make a new rental abreementaccording to company policy. I believe that since we had communicated with him by phone through the agent at the airport advising that we would be late that the original reservation should been extended.

My experience was overall quite good. There was a bit of a line when we arrived and it took about a half hour to get to us, even though we had a reservation. But once it was our turn, everything went quite smoothly. No complaints at all.

How can I get a cheap car rental in South America?

  • Use our amazing filter feature to point you toward the cheapest car deals in town — and then compare the prices;

Should I get a luxury rental car in South America?
For some of us, owning a prestige vehicle may be somewhat out of reach. But renting your dream ride is far easier than you think! Imagine tearing down the open road in a snazzy convertible, even if it’s only for a day or two. Or perhaps all you’re looking for is a dependable set of wheels to bring you safely from point A to point B. Flashy or affordable? Either way, one thing’s for sure — there’s a rental car to suit you in South America.
What side of the road do they drive on in South America?
You’ll need to keep right when driving in South America. Also, take some extra caution if it’s your first time on the road here. Once you’ve got the hang of how the locals drive, you can relax and enjoy the new scenery!
What happens if I get a speeding fine while driving a rental car in South America?
Normally, one of two things will happen. Your chosen rental car company may bill the amount stated on the fine to your credit card. This is the usual practice. Alternatively, it may give your contact information to local law enforcement agencies so the fine is issued directly to you.
