KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Ushuaia

  • With your cheap car hire in Ushuaia, you get to discover this magical resort town on the southernmost tip of the world with the independence it needs, as public transportation will not be an ally for your adventures. This small, windswept Argentinian tourist town is notorious for being particularly beautiful, and with the snow-covered peaks of the Punta Arena enveloping you, you will enjoy driving in one of the most stunningly scenic parts of the world. A gateway to Antarctica, Ushuaian road trips traverse along Beagle Channel, Martial Mountains and beyond.
  • Get your cheap Ushuaia car hire as you land in the region, from Ushuaia International Airport (USH), roughly just 4 km from the Ushuaia town centre. A small airport, you will find their services at the car hire area to be friendly and helpful. The Spanish staff should be bilingual too. Here you can hire from the global brand SIXT and find a variety of deals. The airport also has an Avis, Hertz and Europcar at your disposal.
  • While parts of the Pan-American Highway do cross into the town, you will mostly be driving your car hire in Ushuaia on smaller roads with minimal traffic. The condition of roads is decent, despite being rather narrow in places. You will drive on the right-hand side of the road and remain buckled up always. Children under 10 should remain in the backseat, and if venturing onto main roads or motorways, your lights need to be dimmed to avoid blinding other drivers. Signage will not be in English for the most part, so brush up on Spanish and make sure you understand the rudimental signage before driving.
  • When driving your cheap car hire in Ushuaia, you may find that weather is your biggest challenge. The town is based on a steep hill and suffers from significant winds a lot of the year. The snowfall is also rather significant, and if you are planning on taking a road trip, it is wise to get snow chains for your tyres. Keep speeds to a minimum on the narrow mountain paths around the resort. The locals are friendly drivers but the area gets many tourists, meaning the temperament of fellow drivers is variable.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Ushuaia for $102 or less
  • Book your rental car in Ushuaia at least 3 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Ushuaia are around 25% cheaper than other car types, on average

    With cheap car hire in Ushuaia, you will have to decide what vehicle is best for you depending on your itinerary. Trips into the mountains may require a car with better handling and power yet will still need to be quite small in size. Choose a sturdy medium-sized 4x4 for more adventure-based days out. If you are remaining local, you will do fine with a small compact car, as most people park on the streets, making smaller definitely better for manoeuvring through winding streets and lanes.

  • What is the speed limit in Ushuaia?

    Ushuaia has a slightly higher speed limit than you may be used to, but unless you are comfortable driving on the right-hand side of the road, it is advisable to take it slow until you are confident. When driving in an urban area, you can drive at 70 kph legally. In more suburban areas, you can push it to as much as 110 kph, and when on the motorways, you can drive at 130 kph.

  • Where can I park my car hire in Ushuaia?

    Ushuaian drivers park their cars wherever they can get a spot, and the sides of the roads are fair game. There are some large car parks, such as the Estacionamiento on Int. Jorge Garramuno Avenue, but if you can park at your hotel or daily destination it would be advisable to do so. Alternatively, look for street parking, even if it means parking a block or two from your plans that day.

No había nadie en la oficina cuando llegamos a la hora que habíamos reservado un auto por la página. Después de esperar más de quince minutos, llegó alguien y nos avisó que no había más autos disponibles, sin importar nuestra reserva.

Just request the service people to move the car at the beginning to more convenient start spot rather then revers uphill until you get to feel the car.
