KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Punta del Este

  • Punta del Este car rentals provide a flexible and convenient way to explore this seaside city in Uruguay and nearby destinations. You’ll enjoy the freedom of creating your own schedule and exploring the city at your own pace. It’s much easier in a rental car to access a variety of places that public transportation can’t always reach. You can drive to the capital, Montevideo, approximately two hours’ drive from Punta del Este, and explore the historic Old Town (Ciudad Vieja) or visit landmarks like the Plaza Independencia and the Solís Theatre. You can also head northeast along the coast to Piriápolis and relax on their beaches.
  • If you’re visiting Punta del Este, you’ll be flying into Punta del Este International Airport (PDP), which is around 12.4 miles from downtown Punta Del Este. The airport hosts several local and international car-rental companies, including Avis, Budget, Europcar, Alamo, National, SIXT, Localize, and Punta Car. The car-rental counters are in the main terminal in the Arrivals area.
  • Driving in Punta del Este is generally easy. The roads are good quality and well maintained.

Most roads leading into and out of the city usually record high traffic during these periods. During peak travel season, you’ll encounter traffic jams throughout the day, especially on streets near beaches. Plan your trip early, or try to leave early or late in the day to avoid crowds and congestion.
