KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Colonia del Sacramento

  • When choosing car hire in Colonia del Sacramento, you not only have the freedom of exploring the historical city on your own time and without the restraints of public transport but you can also explore further out of the city. If you fancy a day at the beach, head to Playa Ferrando, a small beach located near the historic quarter, offering a relaxing spot to unwind and enjoy the view of the Rio de la Plata. The convenience of your own car will allow you to pack your beach goodies for the day.
  • When collecting your Colonia del Sacramento hire car at Carrasco International Airport (MVD), the car hire counters are typically located in the Arrivals Hall of the airport. After collecting your luggage, you can proceed to the ground floor of the terminal and you will find various car hire company counters. Keep in mind that the drive from the airport to Colonia del Sacramento is roughly 180 km (112 miles) and takes around 2.5 to 3 hours to complete.
  • When utilising car hire in Colonia del Sacramento, you will likely experience well-maintained roads and relatively calm traffic compared to bigger cities. The driving culture in Colonia del Sacramento is generally relaxed and respectful. Drivers tend to follow traffic rules and exhibit calm behaviour, but as always, it’s important to remain alert in a foreign city and drive defensively.
  • When using Colonia del Sacramento car hire, you might find the streets of the inner city congested at peak times of the day. Rush hour is approximately from 07:30 to 09:00 and 17:30 to 19:00. Although the city is not as congested as a large city, you should still consider leaving your car at your hotel or at a car park to avoid wasting time searching for parking spots. Most roads are in good condition, but keep in mind you might encounter some narrow and less developed roads in rural areas.
  • Book your car hire in Colonia del Sacramento at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • Where are the best places to park in Colonia del Sacramento?

    Colonia del Sacramento has designated parking spaces along the streets, and you can find parking meters in certain areas. However, availability can be limited, especially during peak tourist seasons. There are different zoned tiers for parking depending on how long you plan to park, ranging from $U 1 (around £0.77) to $U 3 (around £2.30). There are also public car parks near the city centre if you want to leave your car for the day and explore.

Returning the car was a little difficult. They were supposed to be open, the sign on the door said open, but they were closed and the gate to park your car off the street was also shut

The agent Ramiro was outstanding. He was friendly, competent, quick and even provided his cell phone number in case there are any problems. Thank you Ramiro for a great job. This was ready at the time agreed (very different to a competitor in Argentina where I had to wait for more the an hour while other customers get cars right away).

Pros:

I arrived at Hertz and they unfortunately did not find my reservation so I was left with no car. I did not receive any cancellation from Hertz or Kayak and needless to say, this left me in a tough situation in Uruguay it being carnival week. Not impressed at all with Kayak.

Pros:

Nothing.

Cons:

It was a complete disaster. They were totally unaware of the resevation. They did not have the car we reserved nor did they ever had and for the amount reserved, they only had the cheapest option, a Fiat Uno. They suggested a write a message complaining with Kayak for this situation.

Cons:

I hired a golf or similar. Arriving at the car rental I was warned that they do not work with golf or similar and that the website kayak was responsible for the incorrect information. I was provided a nissan versa, car much cheaper than golf.

We booked a car with. Priceline and received confirmation the day before we arrived that our car was waiting for us. When we arrived, Thrifty said Priceline had made a mistake and they would not honour the price. They said they would give us a cheaper car for the same price, but when they put it in the system, they then said they could not do that either. They cancelled our reservation on the spot and then rebooked us for an extra $100 for the week. We had no choice but to take the car because we were stranded otherwise. We contacted Priceline who told us if we were not happy we didn't have to take the car, and contacted Thrifty Corporate who said it was a franchise outlet so they could not help us. Never book with Priceline or Thrifty!
