Jan 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

They tried to force an insurance purchase over a 7000 USD guarantee in case I didn't get it. I did not get the car with this company.

Cons:

There is no chance of getting a car without paying their own insurance (expensive obviously).

Cons:

Waited for the attendant for over 90 minutes bc no one was at the front desk!

KAYAK

Pros:

They referred me to another company

Cons:

The company was able to see my reservation in their computer, but were unwilling to honor it. They said that they only hone reservations made more than 48 hours in advance. I am concerned that I will be double charged, as it required a credit card t secure my reservation

5.6 Okay

KAYAK

Pros:

The drop off was easy.

Cons:

The pick up was terrible. The whole process took 45 minutes. On top of that, a microphone fell out of the lining of the car ceiling and was very off-putting.

8.0 Excellent

May 2019

KAYAK

Cons:

A bit slow picking it up. Thankfully there was no line. The agent was pleasant enough but it took 20 minutes.

Feb 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Drop off was easy, although I never received a receipt.

Cons:

The staff at the time of rental were rude and unhelpful. It also took over an hour to complete the rental. The car they gave me didn't feel safe -- it was a very high clearance vehicle that fishtailed every time I hit a bump or pothole in the road.

Cons:

My insurance (which I purchased separately from Europcar) was not recognized by the company, and I was forced to leave a $3000 deposit (on my credit card) when picking up the car - and I found out that I was also charged another $700 for a reason I ignore! When I returned the car, they insisted that there were additional scratches (which is completely false) and refused to return my deposit. I am now trying to find a way to get my deposit back (and the additional $700 charge, which I don't understand). Terrible experience. Will never use this company again.

Top tips for renting a car in Calama

  • Plonked amidst the wide, Chilean landscape with no other big cities nearby, it is highly recommended to get a hire car when coming to Calama. This will let you get the most out of your trip and explore the city conveniently on your own four wheels. With a hire car you could also discover the beauty of the Reserva Nacional Alto Loa, which is a 2-hour drive to the north, or roam through the breathtaking beauty of the Atacama Desert.
  • El Loa Airport is about twenty minutes by car from Calama, so it is advised to pick up a hire car directly from there to save the hassle of traveling into the city with alternative transport or expensive cabs – also because there is no public transport going into the city. Head to the agency desks following the signs from the terminal and choose the Avenue Balmaceda for the quickest route to Calama.
  • Driving in Calama should generally cause no problems for most drivers, but bear in mind that road conditions in Calama and the whole of Chile can be poor and riddled with potholes. It is important to inquire whether the hire insurance covers damages to the underside of the car, and it is also important to reduce your speed and approach damaged streets with caution.
  • As Calama is not a big city and is located remotely, there are no painstaking rush hours to worry about. However, December to February is the high season for tourists visiting the Atacama Desert, so tourism can mean increased traffic, but there should be no major delays for drivers in general.
  • Book your rental car in Calama at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Calama are around -28% cheaper than other car types, on average
