KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Puerto Natales

  • Car hire in Puerto Natales is the way to go for transport, as this small and somewhat remote port city doesn’t offer a wide range of options. There are local bus services, though the purpose is mainly to get in and out of Puerto Natales, as the city is small and mostly accessible by foot. There are also taxis available, and a trip within the city will usually cost around 1,000-2,000 CLP (1.78-3.57 AUD). Having your own Puerto Natales car hire gives you the freedom to explore in and around the city at your own pace and on your own schedule.
  • Aeropuerto Teniente Julio Gallardo (PNT) is a small operation and does not have hire car offices at the airport. Puerto Natales offers one main hire car company, Europcar. They do not offer a shuttle service to and from the airport; however, the journey is short and should cost somewhere around 8,400-11,200 CLP (15-20 AUD) for the 10-15min trip by taxi.
  • Puerto Natales is a small city with a fair distance between it and the rest of Chile and any other cities, so the roads are fairly quiet and the feeling of the city is generally relaxed. Car hire in Puerto Natales comes with plenty of advantages and no real concerns, as there is no true city hustle and bustle here.
  • The main difficulties you may find driving your hire car in Puerto Natales are that all signs are in Spanish, so if you haven’t got much vocabulary in that regard, you may find directions a tad confusing. Roads in more remote areas, including many surrounding Puerto Natales, can be narrow, winding and not in great condition, so be wary when venturing through and around this city, as every area is different.
  • Book your car hire in Puerto Natales at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact car hire in Puerto Natales are around 4% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Puerto Natales

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Puerto Natales?

    You will find when booking car hire in Puerto Natales that your only options are SUV vehicles, and this is because, really, they are essential. While the city centre is no problem, getting around this area of Chile and most of its attractions will require an SUV. A lot of the national parks and sights at this end of the country have unsealed, steep roads, and an economy or compact vehicle simply wouldn’t do the job.

  • What’s the speed limit in Puerto Natales?

    The speed limit within the centre of Puerto Natales will usually be 50-60 km/h unless otherwise signed. Once you get out of the city and hit rural roads, the standard speed limit is 100 km/h and then 120 km/h on the highways. Do be sure to pay close attention to signs for speed limits to avoid any fines added to the cost of your car hire in Puerto Natales.

It’s a small, quiet city so there is no real battle for a spot to park here. There is parking at the ferry terminal if you are venturing that way to Puerto Montt, and parking is available at shopping centres and attractions within the city. Because Puerto Natales is not a large area, you will generally not need to worry about finding a parking spot anyway, as you can mostly get from one place to another by foot and leave your hire car parked somewhere central to your destinations.

6.0 Okay

Feb 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was fine, BUT - see my comments in the "didn't like" section.

Cons:

First of all - the folks that work there don't speak any English - or very very little. I hope not to sound "Lingo-centric" in saying this, but I'd think a car rental agency in a tourist destination to have maybe one staff member who could speak English a bit. Here's the issue though... BE VERY CAREFUL when they do the car inspection - especially on the windshield. The roads around Torres del Paine are gravel. When they signed the car out to me, they made note of two small dot-scratches on the windshield. When I returned the car the agent on duty argued that those weren't noted on the inspection forms, and that we had a problem since I'd damaged the car. We finally resolved it, but it took time and nerves and a phone call to folks off-site. Make sure they prominently note any (and every) windshield flaw before you take the car.

It isunreliable company. No way to communicate with eurocar. When my flight was delayed, i can not reach them by phone. Sent then msg through their Manage rental car page, but they ignored it. They cancelled my booking, gave a car not I booked and blamed me for later showing up for pick up.

Our SUV was great! It was clean, and we were very comfortable. It held five passengers and our bags. Gas mileage was great and there were absolutely no problems with any aspect of the rental.

We attended the location an hour and a half after the booking time and did not have any ways to contact the rental company since we were in a foreign country (Chile). We attended the office and were told that our vehicle had already been rented and we were late as per their one hour « no show policy ». We could see our rental vehicle in the parking lot with numerous other cars. The employee stated that « someone else walked in within that 30 min windows after the hour allowed as per their policy and rented the exact same car and somehow had already signed all the contracts, made the inspection and left within that same 30 min period ». The employee was rude with us and then offered us to rent the exact same vehicle (our original rental) for $150/day which was more than twice what we rented it for through your app. It is low season in Chile and we walked by the next 2 days and our vehicle was still in the parking lot. It’s obvious that this company wanted us to rush into a decision and rent the vehicle at a really expensive price. I do appreciate the help of the booking company who helped us getting most of our money back, but I was really disappointed in that rental company and the service offered. I have travelled and booked cars numerous time with different rental company and this was the first time I had a bad experience and it was also my first time booking with This company. It was really frustrating to see an employee (I believe he was the manager) using the fact that we were tourists to try to overcharge us and being so unprofessional.
