KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Puerto Natales

  • Car rentals in Puerto Natales offer many advantages over relying on public buses or trains. With a bus or train, you are bound by fixed schedules, limiting your ability to explore the region at will. However, a rental car enables you to make a personalized itinerary and freely visit attractions such as Muelle Historico, Monumento al viento, and Monumento de la Mano. Additionally, having a rental car grants you the freedom to venture into the region's remote areas, which are unreachable by buses or trains. Furthermore, a rental car offers a high level of comfort and privacy, especially for families or groups, as you can travel together in a spacious vehicle, carry your belongings conveniently, and avoid crowded buses or waiting times for connections.
  • Teniente Julio Gallardo Airport (PNT) is the main airport serving Puerto Natales and its metropolis. If you are taking a flight to Puerto Natales, Chile, you'll be happy to know that PNT will be your destination airport. Once you've arrived at PNT, you will find many Puerto Natales car rentals featuring accessible desks in the airport's arrivals area. The car rental desks are easily visible and accessible, offering you a seamless transition from your flight to the rental process. The friendly and professional staff at these rental desks will help you make the process of renting a car both efficient and pleasant. The car rentals in Puerto Natales available at PNT are Hertz, Avis, Europcar, Keddy by Europcar, Econorent, Thrifty, Sunnycars, and Rentacar.
  • The traffic flow in Puerto Natales is generally calm, contributing to a more relaxed driving experience. Drivers follow the rules of the road, including obeying traffic lights, signals, and posted speed limits. While traffic can increase during peak hours, it remains manageable due to the town's smaller size and well-maintained road infrastructure. Drivers are expected to yield to pedestrians at designated crosswalks, and driving under the influence of alcohol is illegal. Defensive driving is encouraged to account for unforeseen circumstances, including sudden weather changes or encounters with wildlife on the roads.
  • Puerto Natales experiences the morning rush hour from around 7:30-9 am as locals commute to work or drop their kids off at school, contributing to increased traffic congestion on the town's main roads such as Avenida Espana and Avenida Santiago Bueras. The evening rush hour begins around 5:30 pm and continues until around 7 pm. This period is characterized by locals returning home from work as the traffic flow increases, leading to crowded thoroughfares.

6.0 Okay

Feb. 2017

Pros:

The car was fine, BUT - see my comments in the "didn't like" section.

Cons:

First of all - the folks that work there don't speak any English - or very very little. I hope not to sound "Lingo-centric" in saying this, but I'd think a car rental agency in a tourist destination to have maybe one staff member who could speak English a bit. Here's the issue though... BE VERY CAREFUL when they do the car inspection - especially on the windshield. The roads around Torres del Paine are gravel. When they signed the car out to me, they made note of two small dot-scratches on the windshield. When I returned the car the agent on duty argued that those weren't noted on the inspection forms, and that we had a problem since I'd damaged the car. We finally resolved it, but it took time and nerves and a phone call to folks off-site. Make sure they prominently note any (and every) windshield flaw before you take the car.

The system was unavailable and the manual procedure took so long. We scheduled the pickup for 9:00am, but took the car 11:30a.m. The drop off was ok.

It isunreliable company. No way to communicate with eurocar. When my flight was delayed, i can not reach them by phone. Sent then msg through their Manage rental car page, but they ignored it. They cancelled my booking, gave a car not I booked and blamed me for later showing up for pick up.

Our SUV was great! It was clean, and we were very comfortable. It held five passengers and our bags. Gas mileage was great and there were absolutely no problems with any aspect of the rental.
