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.

The speed limit in urban areas across Chile is usually 50 km/h (30 mph), but it may be lower in certain residential areas. Rural roads have a maximum speed limit of 100 km/h (62 mph), and highways observe speed limits of 120 km/h (75 mph), unless otherwise marked.

How are gas prices in Puerto Montt?

The average petrol prices in Belo Horizonte are about CL$2,943.16 ($4.28) per gallon. Prices can go as low as CL$2,649.79 ($3.86) per gallon and as high as CL$3,406.87 ($4.96) per gallon. 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.
