Border Problems
Pros: The car was new, and fit our needs perfectly. We had plenty of room for ourselves and luggage.
Cons: We rented the car in Punta Arenas, a city near the Argentine border, with plans of visiting national parks in both Chile and Argentina. When questioned by the Europcar agent about our plans, I fully disclosed that we would be crossing the border. I fully realize that I missed the fine print in the agreement, and that it wasn't the desk agents job necessarily to alert me of the necessity of obtaining a border crossing approval from Europcar. My complaint is that in the entire rental process, it was never made evident to me, a rental car novice, that this document was necessary. I contend that I cannot be the first to experience this hassle. Secondly, when we found ourselves in this situation at the border, Europcar was not at all helpful in resolving our predicament. It was extremely difficult to contact anyone. When we did contact someone, they were unable to help us. The border agents explained that in the past when travelers encountered the same difficulty, the rental car companies simply call, fax, or email the necessary documents. Not so in our case. We were required to return to Puerto Natales where we were told that we would need to exchange cars in order to cross the border. This was not the case. We were simply given the required document and sent on our way. This certainly could have been done the evening before and sent electronically. Again I fully recognize that the documentation was my responsibility to obtain. I only wish that Europcar had been more responsive to my predicament in our time of need. We lost a full day of our vacation, and incurred the extra expense of gas to return to Puerto Natales, and pay for unexpected hotel aswell.

Received a well used compact instead of midsize
Pros: Easy pick up and drop off in terminal. No hassle. Friendly staff fluent in English.
Cons: Crappy car with a pitted windshield and no hubcaps ... tires looked like they were all spare tires. Poor alignment. Reserved a mid size and got a Chevy Aveo. Maybe this is midsize/intermediate in Chile but not as advertised. a Pugeot 301

Helpful Staff in Pinta Arenas
Pros: The staff was great and let us pick up our car early and drop it off a little late. In return for taking a car with a chipped and cracked windshield he waived any additional windshield damage which is very likely on the dirt roads.

Top tips for renting a car in Punta Arenas

  • To truly experience the wide expanses available to you in Punta Arenas, a car is simply a necessity. Renting a vehicle is recommended to all visitors to the area, especially if they want to get to the heart of the Chile’s Patagonia region, in part because there really is no other way to get around the area. Yes, there are buses, but they only offer direct routes and don’t allow for true independence or real freedom of exploration.
  • Looking forward to traversing the end of the world with a hire car? Start by picking up the car right after you land at Presidente Carlos Ibáñez del Campo International Airport. Arrivals to the airport will find the hire car desks in the airport’s Arrivals Hall.
  • If you plan on exploring the beautiful countryside surrounding Punta Arenas, make sure your keep on the lookout for one of the area’s most common animals: sheep. One of the major industries of Punta Arenas is sheepherding and, as a result, flocks of sheep are commonly seen crossing roads outside of the city.
  • Though Punta Arenas sits at the end of the world, it also experiences rush hour traffic from time to time. During the week, rush hour typically starts up in the morning at around 8:00 a.m. and quickly cools off at around 9:00 a.m. There is also another brief period of congestion from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. as well. Often during rush hour, Av. José Martínez de Aldunate gets particularly backed up so visitors should take note and avoid it if possible.
  • Book your rental car in Punta Arenas at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Punta Arenas are around 6% cheaper than other car types, on average
