Pros: Enough space in the car and reasonable handling, even if low powered. Excellent help by company in Coyhaique.
Cons: We were outfitted with tires much too worn for traveling the Carretera Austral. With two flat tires early on, we wasted too much time fixing the problems and missing scheduled activities. Finally, in Coyhaique, the company replaced all four tires.

Your quote and Allianz
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Your quote was $200. The cost for the same car was $600. Then with your special offer which I relied upon, I got the global Allianz insurance. Thought you would steer me right. I was wrong and it was costly. When I got to Chile they told me that I could. It use it and that if I refused their insurance it would cost me $4000. Yes $4000. So I had to take their insurance even after relying upon kayak special partners. Thanks for costing me an extra $400. Thanks.

Great overall, needs GPS
Pros: Reservation was easy, customer service was great, car was clean and ran fine. Manual transmission, apparently, is common (I like it).
Cons: GPS really is needed, or at least some detailed maps, as streets in the region are often not identified with signs. Google Maps saved the day several times!

Waited for nearly an hour at the desk, as I'd prep
Cons: I arrived at 1830 at night to Puerto Montt, a small airport in Chile. I had a prepaid reservation, so got my luggage and went to the Budget counter. There was no agent there, but two "If you need help, please call xxxx-xxxx. I called the first number, and the cell phone was sitting on the agent's desk, not with him/her. So I called the second number, and a second phone that was sitting on the desk rang. So the agent didn't have either phone with her. I asked the agent at desk next door, and she said "the agent went for a cigarette break, and will be back in 10 minutes". So I waited. For 45 minutes, s/he never came back to the desk. Finally, I paid twice as much to rent a car from another company. Now, I'm having trouble getting my money back. What a crock of s*&t.

Car was not available
Cons: When you rent/reserve an automatic car, it should be there. Not only was there not one available (in a country where manual is the standard), but the person at the Alamo counter was rude, indifferent, and completely unhelpful assisting us. We actually received some help from multiple other counters, who finally were able to connect us with a company with an automatic available.

Rental place did not have car for us
Cons: We were told at pick up that they did not have the car size we reserved for us. They offered much smaller car for the same prize. We had way too many bags and demanded larger car. After having to fight with them and wait and hour and half they provided a larger car for an extra charge each day. A car that was not suitable for rental. It felt like we took someone's personal car...

Pros: To able to drive an automatic car
Cons: The sealing rubber of the winshield came off while I was driving in a highway. It was scary and dangerous. Same thing happened with the back sit windows. In a city where it rains almost every day it was a serious problem. The people were excellent. The car was not in good shape

Don't expect an Automatic transmission!
Cons: Ridiculous that we paid more to reserve an automatic transmission, only for them to say "no automatico" when we got there. We then had to scramble and go to another company when we didn't speak the language and it cost us more. If you're traveling internationally, use Hertz instead.

Pros: Nothing

No One Was At Rental Car Counter
Cons: Arrived at 20:15 on February 19th because Latam flight from Santiago was delayed over 5 hours. When I went to counter to pick up car, NO ONE WAS THERE. Checked with Information at the Airport and they tried to call the representative twice but to no avail. MAYBE ITS TIME YOU DID A SPOT CHECK TO SEE IF YOUR STAFF ARE WORKING THEIR FULL SHIFT.

Pros: The agent Nicola we met at the airport counter is very friendly and helpful. He even did us a big favour by picking up the car inside the city instead of for us to return it at Puerto Montt airport.
Cons: I have not received the receipt yet. But I need it to split the cost with other 3 friends.

Alamo at Puerto Montt Airport, Chile
Pros: The car rental was just outside of baggage claim and easy to find. The staff was friendly and knowledgable. We were able to get by with the little Spanish we knew. It's important to stay for the inspection once you return the car rather than just drop the keys in the dropbox.
Cons: Returning the car was a bit confusing since many of the other operators had designated parking areas and Alamo didn't. Your best bet is to try and park in a spot close to where you picked it up.

Top tips for renting a car in Puerto Montt

  • A hire car is the most comfortable and efficient way to explore not only Puerto Montt, but the surrounding Lake District of southern Chile as well, as public transportation can’t take you to the most remote places and tours can be quite pricey. Take a drive to Puerto Varas, the shores of Lake LLanquihue, or even cross over the border to see the Argentinian side of Patagonia.
  • Most of the major car hire companies can be found at Puerto Montt El Tepual International Airport (PMC), which is located about 10 miles from the city center. The car hire desks are situated on the first floor in the Arrivals Hall area of the terminal, near the exit. You will need an International Driver’s Permit, and if you intend on crossing the border to Argentina, make sure to book your car well in advance as the extra paperwork can take some time.
  • Puerto Montt is relatively easy to navigate, and as long as you have a GPS in English and a map, you can find your way around the Lake District. Because the non-urban roads in Patagonia and Lake District are often empty, drivers tend to speed up, resulting in less cautious driving, so always remain within the speed limits. Strong winds and rain are very common in the winter, so make sure you drive extra carefully.
  • Traffic in Puerto Montt isn’t usually a problem, but avoid being on the road in the morning when parents are doing the school run and people are heading to work, and again in the evening when everybody heads home. Traffic gets heavier between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m., and then again between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Many Chileans visit the area in the summer and on weekends, so expect to see more people on the roads.
  • Book your rental car in Puerto Montt at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price

What type of car is recommended for driving in Puerto Montt?

If you’re not used to manual transmission, make sure you book an automatic vehicle in advance. If you’re driving in the summer, a mid-size sedan should be fine. But if you’re driving in the winter, you’ll likely need a four-wheel drive, as the weather is quite rough and some roads aren’t great. Don’t forget to request a car with A/C.

Petrolstations across the Lake District are few and far between, so if you’re embarking on a long journey, make sure to fill up the tank in advance.

Many accommodation places offer parking in Puerto Montt. There are a few parking garages in the city, and even in shopping malls, with rates of about $2-2.50 per hour.
