Top tips for renting a car in Punta Arenas

  • To truly experience the wide expanses available to you in Punta Arenas, a car is simply a necessity. Renting a vehicle is recommended to all visitors to the area, especially if they want to get to the heart of the Chile’s Patagonia region, in part because there really is no other way to get around the area. Yes, there are buses, but they only offer direct routes and don’t allow for true independence or real freedom of exploration.
  • Looking forward to traversing the end of the world with a rental car? Start by picking up the car right after you land at Presidente Carlos Ibáñez del Campo International Airport. Arrivals to the airport will find the rental car desks in the airport’s Arrivals Hall.
  • If you plan on exploring the beautiful countryside surrounding Punta Arenas, make sure your keep on the lookout for one of the area’s most common animals: sheep. One of the major industries of Punta Arenas is sheepherding and, as a result, flocks of sheep are commonly seen crossing roads outside of the city.
  • Though Punta Arenas sits at the end of the world, it also experiences rush hour traffic from time to time. During the week, rush hour typically starts up in the morning at around 8:00 a.m. and quickly cools off at around 9:00 a.m. There is also another brief period of congestion from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. as well. Often during rush hour, Av. José Martínez de Aldunate gets particularly backed up so visitors should take note and avoid it if possible.
