Car rental to TdP and El Calafate

We were hoping to rent a car from PA to TdP and EC and back which seems possible but does anyone know about the additional costs for a permit/insurance to cross into Argentina. Many thanks.

Hi there!

This is clearly not the post you're expecting but, since no-one has answered, the question may seem a bit difficult!

I rented a car in Punta Alta in Puerto Natales

Punta Alta is a travel agency which also runs a car-rental.

I did not cross the border, but maybe you can ask this same question to them



This was cheap and reliable. In Punta Arenas you'll find either the international car rental companies such as Budget or Avis (expensive)

or particular "pirate" cars for rent... beware of those... they are very cheap but absolutely unreliable.

I'd advice you to take into account the possibility of taking a bus from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales, and maybe rent there.

This is what I did and it went perfectly well!

Hope this helps! ;-)
