Your quote and AllianzPros: NothingCons: 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.

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.

Cons: - The link for the address for pickup and the map that were given were incorrect. Pickup was at the airport and not at tepaul road. - When we arrived at budget, we were told that they had no cars available and that contrary to the booking confirmation from Kayak, they could refuse the booking.
10.0 Excellent16 Nov 2018
Pros: We got our rental car in Puerto Montt Airport faster than at any other time. It was great to get us on our way to do more sightseeing.
9.6 Excellent7 Mar 2018
Great little carPros: Easy pick up and drop off. The car got us everywhere we wanted to go.

Car wasn't thereCons: When I arrived at Budget, the car wasn't there. And I am now stuck dealing with Allianz trying to get my money back for the insurance I paid but never received.
3.2 Mediocre20 Feb 2017
Rental place did not have car for usCons: 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...

Car was therePros: Convenience. Staff was friendly.Cons: Car was having mechanical problems. Went through a lot of trouble to reach the local agency. Finally had to return to airport to exchange car. Non english speaking staff.
2.0 Mediocre3 Dec 2016
Car was not availableCons: 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.
2.0 Mediocre26 Nov 2016
Cons: They dont accept the credit card insurance.

Alamo at Puerto Montt Airport, ChilePros: 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.
6.8 Good17 Mar 2017
The young rep is very helpful, but I have not recePros: 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.
2.0 Mediocre11 Mar 2017
No One Was At Rental Car CounterCons: 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.
2.0 Mediocre14 Jan 2017
Horrible servicePros: Someone from another rental agency saved our tripCons: We reserved an automatic but they didn't have any. Also misled us about the need to get paperwork to cross the Argentine border. Ended up having to rent from another agency
2.0 Mediocre10 Jan 2017
Booked rental not available and no suitable replacCons: We "booked" an automatic car for an extra $100 & when we arrived there were no automatics left. Ended up going kiosk to kiosk and after 6 others found a car and had to pay $200 more for car.
2.0 Mediocre1 Dec 2016
Complete failurePros: NothingCons: They did not have the car I requested. They did not even have a single automatic car rental available so I had to shop around for an hour at other rental agencies. Terrible experience.
2.0 Mediocre20 Nov 2016
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.
6.0 Good15 Sep 2016
Pros: To able to drive an automatic carCons: 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

Pros: Staff was not helpful, either friendly. I could not the receive the car that I booked and staff refused to cancel my booking. I have not received a refund.Cons: As said before, staff was not helpful, either friendly. I could not the receive the car that I booked and staff refused to cancel my booking. I have not received a refund. And I will not receive that refund. I have tried to reach the SIXT international office operating in Chile, but they are useless. Do not chose this SIXT for you car rental in Puerto Montt and area. Choose upon a company on arrival to the airport. It works much better. SIXT only operates professionally in the states and Europe.

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 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car in Puerto Montt

  • Take a look at our extensive car rental location map to find the best rental cars near you.

  • 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.

  • 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. You’ll also find that you can park freely at most viewpoints and main attractions across the Lake District, and roadside restaurants also tend to offer parking.
