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

  • A hire car is the most comfortable and efficient way to explore not only Puerto Montt, but the surrounding Lake District of southern Chile as well, as public transportation can’t take you to the most remote places and tours can be quite pricey. Take a drive to Puerto Varas, the shores of Lake LLanquihue, or even cross over the border to see the Argentinian side of Patagonia.
  • Most of the major car hire companies can be found at Puerto Montt El Tepual International Airport (PMC), which is located about 10 miles from the city center. The car hire desks are situated on the first floor in the Arrivals Hall area of the terminal, near the exit. You will need an International Driver’s Permit, and if you intend on crossing the border to Argentina, make sure to book your car well in advance as the extra paperwork can take some time.
  • Puerto Montt is relatively easy to navigate, and as long as you have a GPS in English and a map, you can find your way around the Lake District. Because the non-urban roads in Patagonia and Lake District are often empty, drivers tend to speed up, resulting in less cautious driving, so always remain within the speed limits. Strong winds and rain are very common in the winter, so make sure you drive extra carefully.
  • Traffic in Puerto Montt isn’t usually a problem, but avoid being on the road in the morning when parents are doing the school run and people are heading to work, and again in the evening when everybody heads home. Traffic gets heavier between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m., and then again between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Many Chileans visit the area in the summer and on weekends, so expect to see more people on the roads.
  • Book your rental car in Puerto Montt at least 3 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car in Puerto Montt

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Puerto Montt?

    If you’re not used to manual transmission, make sure you book an automatic vehicle in advance. If you’re driving in the summer, a mid-size sedan should be fine. But if you’re driving in the winter, you’ll likely need a four-wheel drive, as the weather is quite rough and some roads aren’t great. Don’t forget to request a car with A/C.

  • What’s the speed limit in Puerto Montt?

    The speed limit in urban areas across Chile is usually 50 km/h (30 mph), but it may be lower in certain residential areas. Rural roads have a maximum speed limit of 100 km/h (62 mph), and highways observe speed limits of 120 km/h (75 mph), unless otherwise marked.

  • Where are the best places to park in Puerto Montt?

    Many accommodation places offer parking in Puerto Montt. There are a few parking garages in the city, and even in shopping malls, with rates of about $2-2.50 per hour. You’ll also find that you can park freely at most viewpoints and main attractions across the Lake District, and roadside restaurants also tend to offer parking.

  • How much is gas price in Puerto Montt?

    The average gas price in Puerto Montt is ₪20.65 per gallon over the past 30 days. Filling up a gas tank costs between ₪248 and ₪330, depending on the car size.

Pros:

Enough space in the car and reasonable handling, even if low powered. Excellent help by company in Coyhaique.

Cons:

We were outfitted with tires much too worn for traveling the Carretera Austral. With two flat tires early on, we wasted too much time fixing the problems and missing scheduled activities. Finally, in Coyhaique, the company replaced all four tires.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

Your quote was $200. The cost for the same car was $600. Then with your special offer which I relied upon, I got the global Allianz insurance. Thought you would steer me right. I was wrong and it was costly. When I got to Chile they told me that I could. It use it and that if I refused their insurance it would cost me $4000. Yes $4000. So I had to take their insurance even after relying upon kayak special partners. Thanks for costing me an extra $400. Thanks.

Cons:

We were told at pick up that they did not have the car size we reserved for us. They offered much smaller car for the same prize. We had way too many bags and demanded larger car. After having to fight with them and wait and hour and half they provided a larger car for an extra charge each day. A car that was not suitable for rental. It felt like we took someone's personal car...

Pros:

Staff was not helpful, either friendly. I could not the receive the car that I booked and staff refused to cancel my booking. I have not received a refund.

Cons:

As said before, staff was not helpful, either friendly. I could not the receive the car that I booked and staff refused to cancel my booking. I have not received a refund. And I will not receive that refund. I have tried to reach the SIXT international office operating in Chile, but they are useless. Do not chose this SIXT for you car rental in Puerto Montt and area. Choose upon a company on arrival to the airport. It works much better. SIXT only operates professionally in the states and Europe.

Could NOT get the car, they did not accepted our official canadian ID, driver’s licence and/or our international driver’s licence (as specified that it would be required and accepted in the rental aggrement). They ONLY accept a original passport. Which we did not have because the cruise line keep them while in a cruise ship. We had an official stamped copy of our passport, and still, they did not accept it.
