4.0 OkayApr 12 2017
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.

6.8 GoodFeb 1 2019
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.

2.0 MediocreApr 14 2019
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 ExcellentNov 16 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 ExcellentMar 7 2018
Great little carPros: Easy pick up and drop off. The car got us everywhere we wanted to go.
2.0 MediocreNov 30 2017
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 MediocreFeb 20 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...
7.6 GoodFeb 5 2017
Cons: Check in and delivery were very slow
2.0 MediocreJan 8 2017
Terrible customer service experiencePros: Nothing at all. Will never rent from this lacation againCons: Super slow service, dirty car, unprofessional staff
7.2 GoodDec 20 2016
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 MediocreDec 3 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 MediocreNov 26 2016
Cons: They dont accept the credit card insurance.

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 rental 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 rental companies can be found at Puerto Montt El Tepual International Airport (PMC), which is located about 10 miles from the city center. The car rental 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.

  • 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.

Gas stations 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.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge.
