Rental car in Chillan

I am trying to find a rental car agency in Chillan. We want to travel over to Termas de Chillan and points all around. I have searched forum and the www and can only find one place, MV, that has a web site. We want to travel to Valle Las Trancas & Hermoso and from what I can tell, we will need a 4X4. Does anyone have any ideas? BTW, we are traveling by train from Santiago to Chillan (tickets already bought) so going to Concepcion is not a viable option for us. THANKS and CHEERS!

Thanks Toid, I have already tried them. I need a telephone number for Avis or Hertz that has a counter in the train station/airport but I can't seem to get through to them.

Hi Billy: Did you find a solution for this? I am looking at the exact same thing. Train to Chillan and then rent a car from there.

Train from Santiago then 4x4 car rental works great. Actually don't even think about renting something else if tou plan to fo to Necados de Chillan / Valle Hermoso. The road is not asphalted and the bits which are asphalted have large potholes. Remember than when you are at Las Trancas, you will be stopped by a gang offering you to install chains arguing that by law you have to install chains. Don't fall into the trapp as this is a dishonest practice. All the road up to the ski station is doable with a 4x4 without installing chains. Very annoying these people. To rent the 4x 4, we used larranaga.cl/

Teléfonos + 56: (42) 2210 112 -+56 42 2223-202; 18 de Septiembre 870; Chillán - ... 2012 Comercial Larrañaga. We took a taxi from the train station for CLP 2,000 then rented the 4x4 for USD120/ day. Great experience.

Hi, not too sure if you're watching this post or not anymore but just want to check how you went with your travel. Did the train from Santiago to Chillan work well or would you think the bus would work well too. Also - what did you end up doing about car seats. Thanks in advance
