5 day car rental/hire in CoyhaiquePleasant, relatively hassle free (for Chile). Did not have any problems with the car. Return was straightforward, no quibbling.They do provide proprietary insurance which does not however include unpaved roads, unfortunate when one considers that the vast majority of roads in this region are unpaved. The 18% VAT waiver for non-residents in lodging does not apply in the case of car rentals. Car rental (this is not directed at Europacar) is quite expensive in the entire region for understandable reasons, poor roads, crazy drivers, poor signage, etc. I suppose the above points are true of all firms industry wide and do not signal out Europacar which provided me with a well maintained car at a lower price than its competitors, courteous service without hassles or fuss.

Top tips for renting a car at Balmaceda Teniente Vidal Airport

  • As you arrive at Balmaceda Teniente Vidal Airport, your best chance at exploring the Patagonia region of Chile is to get behind the wheel. Though there are local shuttle buses taking you to nearby cities, your own car hire can access remote roads and villages and give you more control and time savings. Balmaceda Airport might be relatively small compared to international airports, but it has a large enough selection of car hire suppliers with a range of vehicles suited to the region.
  • The roads around Balmaceda Teniente Vidal Airport tend to be quite harsh. Expect gravel, potholes, as well as tight curves with limited railings. It can also get very windy, particularly at higher altitudes, so you should think carefully about the type of vehicle you want for your journey. If exploring the region of Patagonia by car, it may be practical to go for an SUV or a small van, as these can keep you safe and are less likely to get damaged by the terrain - hence avoiding a surcharge.
  • As the Argentinian border, Paso Huemules, is only 2.5 miles away from Balmaceda Teniente Vidal Airport, you might consider driving across the border with your car hire. Some providers, including Europcar, allow cross-border travel into Argentina, but you should always notify the company about travelling internationally well in advance. Also note that while some providers may let you return your vehicle to another location within Chile, this is unlikely to be the case with dropping the car off in Argentina.
  • To return your car hire at Balmaceda Teniente Vidal Airport, you should make your way from either the north or south of Chile onto the 245 Road (Ruta 245). If driving from Coyhaique, which is about 35 miles and an hour's drive away, you should take Ruta 7 before turning onto Ruta 245. Cross the Oscuro River (Rio Oscuro) and you're only about 2min away. Then, just leave your car in your provider's designated parking space and return your keys at the desk. Fortunately, since it serves a limited number of destinations, the airport shouldn't be too busy before your return flight.
  • Book your rental car at Balmaceda Teniente Vidal Airport at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
