KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Temuco

  • Temuco is surrounded by natural landscapes, including national parks, lakes, and even volcanoes. Having Temuco car rentals makes it much easier to explore these areas on your own time. Some of the most popular places to visit include Conguillío National Park and Villarrica Volcano. Although public transportation is available in Temuco, it can be time-consuming and unreliable. Renting cheap car rentals in Temuco provides more flexibility and freedom to travel at your own pace and stop wherever you like. This is especially important if you're visiting during the peak tourist season, when public transportation can be crowded and difficult to follow.
  • Temuco’s airport, also known as La Araucanía International Airport (ZCO), is the primary airport serving Temuco; it’s 13 miles south of Temuco’s city center. If you're planning to rent Temuco car rentals from the airport, the rental-car offices are located inside the airport terminal building on the first floor. Valdivia Pichoy Airport (ZAL) is another airport near Temuco, about 68 miles west of the city. The rental-car offices at Valdivia Pichoy Airport are also located inside the terminal building, on the second floor. You can easily find them by following the signs or asking for directions at the information desk.
  • Driving cheap car rentals in Temuco requires some knowledge of the local laws, etiquette, and safety considerations. Chilean drivers generally respect traffic laws and follow them closely most of the time. However, there might be some incidence of deviation from the rules in certain parts of the city. For example, some drivers might disregard stop signs or traffic lights in remote or rural areas. Pedestrians are numerous and cross the streets frequently, so drivers should be extra cautious in pedestrian areas. Jaywalking is also common in some parts of the city, so drivers should be alert for people stepping out into the road without warning.
  • The rush hour in Temuco usually occurs during weekday mornings between 8 am and 10 am and in afternoons between 5 pm and 7 pm. During these times, the main roads in and out of the city might become congested, particularly Avenida Alemania. Temuco is located near several lakes and rivers, which can create foggy and muddy environments sometimes, particularly during the wet season. Driving cheap car rentals in Temuco on dirt or unpaved roads in these areas can be a challenge, especially if you're not familiar with the terrain.

The cost for paid parking is around 500 CLP ($0.70) per hour, although rates might vary depending on your location and time of day. Some popular paid-parking options include parking garages and designated parking lots. Free parking is available in certain areas of the city, like residential areas and select public spaces, but drivers should always look for posted signs and restrictions, since parking in prohibited areas could result in a fine or a towed vehicle.

Pros:

We arrived at the airport and a Budget employee showed up immediately. We unloaded our belongings from the car and took it into the terminal and the Budget man took the car away. It could not have been easier.

Cons:

There were no instructions anywhere about returning the car at the airport so we were confused until the Budget man showed up.

Cons:

I had reserved a Yaris, knowing that I didn't have a lot of passengers, but did have a lot of luggage so I needed something with some trunk space. I was given a Citroen B3 hatchback, with very little trunk space, only one piece of luggage fit in the trunk, but I was told that it was the same category, so I couldn't have something with more trunk space without upgrading. In the end I had to pay almost double to upgrade, but had no other choice as I had five bags and no where to keep them.

Pros:

Great service, clean car and pleasant agent. The rental car company desk was not open when we returned the car, which was no problem, but if no one had been there when we wanted to pick the car up, that would have been a problem.

Check in was horrible. Theo wanted to charge us nearly the double of what was stated in the contract. It took us over one hour and a long call with Hertz International in the US to solve the issue. And in the end we were right and the Hertz guy in Temuco just wanted to charge us unjustified extra money Drop off in Puerto Montt was great though

Reserved a car on Kayak, with a stated price including all taxes and fees. When I came to pick up, Herrz charged me an unexpected $150 in fees. And shrugged, they pointed at Kayak, Kayak has no way to register concerns. Poor business decision for both companies. I felt extremely cheated.
