Bus or car?


my husband and I have 6 days for the lakes region at the end of Oct. If the volcano ash clears we want to spend about 3 days doing day trips based in Bariloche (Villa angusta, llao llao + campanario, tronador) and the other 3 days based in Punta Varas.

How much of a difference in prices and convenience would there be between renting a car versus buses+organized tours?

If we go with a car- should we order it in advance or just find an agency the day we get there?

yaeld07. If you hire a car with a local company in Bariloche (NOT Hertz etc) they don't charge for taking the car to Chile. But also consider hiring in Bariloche and Puerto Varas, and take the bus across the border so you can look out the window for the journey. Rental cars in Chile are also cheaper than in Argentina
