Top tips for renting a car in Argentina

Liability insurance is mandatory if you intend to drive in Argentina, so be sure that you are covered before signing any rental contracts. Also, Argentine law requires that all cars always carry the following items: warning triangles, a fire extinguisher and a first-aid kit. If the rental agency does not provide them, then you are responsible for acquiring them yourself.

Most rental agencies do not offer unlimited daily mileage, so if you wish to rent a car in Argentina and are on a budget, you may wish to try the agency Facil rent a car, which offers an option for unlimited daily mileage. The maximum is usually about 200 km per day (about 124 miles), which is especially helpful if you plan on exploring the vast southern Patagonia region or the Andean mountain range in the west.

When vacationing in Argentina, you should know that cars with automatic transmissions are uncommon there. This is true of rentals as well, which means you may have to pay more for an automatic if you are unfamiliar with a manual transmission. That said, most of the American rental companies should have a supply of automatic cars, so your search should start with them first.

If you intend to travel across the borders to Brazil or Chile in a rental car, you should notify your rental agency in advance because there may be additional fees that could affect your travel plans. You may also need to show other documentation at border checkpoints, and you should always make sure that you are carrying all of your paperwork with you, including your passport, driver’s license and rental contract.
