rental cars/road conditions

I want to rent a car while we are in Bariloche in late Jan - but some days we will be rafting, others maybe fishing. Is it possible to rent a car for just one or two days? Also - what seems to be the best way to fly from Buenos AIres?

Thanks -

Yes in Bariloche you may rent a car just for the day, road conditions in general are good.

The best way to fly from BA ? ...guess you mean where to buy your ticket ? if so guess in BA ....

For river rafting (Manso river) try Extremo sur guides.

Make sure the price quoted includes unlimited mileage or mileage sufficient for your plans, 21% VAT (tax) and insurance. Do not rely on your credit card rental car insurance as some banks do not cover international rentals. Get an international license in the US at any auto club for each driver. Some rental car agencies require payment in cash upon pickup and your credit card as security. The price of gas is high and stations are not as prevalent as in the US so keep your tank topped when you have a chance. The cars will be manual transmission with air conditioning. Argentine drivers are fast and agressive but keep to a pace that you feel comfortable with. It is fun once you get into the groove.
