KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Temuco

  • When you opt for cheap car hire in Temuco, you instantly generate more options for you to explore this exciting Chilean city with ease. A moderately sized urbanised city, Temuco holds the indigenous Mapuche culture in high regard. Having a hire car can really open up opportunities to see some of the older artefacts and history from the culture that may be further afield from where public transportation can take you. The city has several great mountain trails, and a road trip to Puerto Varas is a great way to spend about 3 hours enjoying the sights from the city to the coastline. On the way, you can stop at Villarrica Lake for lunch.
  • The central airport for the region is Maquehue Airport (PZS), which is based only about 8 km away. Get your cheap car hire in Temuco here as you land and drive straight into your holiday in this vibrant part of Chile. You can find the car hire companies such as Rosselot Rent a Car, NU Car Rentals and SIXT, amongst others, with a host of vehicle types to make your Temuco stay convenient and fun.
  • Driving your Temuco car hire will be a great way to get around, as roads and motorways are in relatively good shape. The motorways are known as autopistas and are tolled. The main artery running through Temuco is Avenida Campolican, and the grid layout of the city should make navigation quite simple. Stay buckled up and under the blood alcohol limit of 0.05%, and don’t forget to drive on the right-hand side of the road.
  • There shouldn’t be many challenges to driving your car hire in Temuco if you brush up on the road signs, particularly as they may not be in English. The local drivers are known to be quite courteous and polite, and the roads are well maintained. If you leave the city centre and enter into rural territory, you will find roads do slip in terms of quality and pedestrians and stray animals might become an issue on the smaller roads. The rural roads are also not well lit, so take care when on adventures in the outskirts of Temuco.
  • Book your car hire in Temuco at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Pros:

We arrived at the airport and a Budget employee showed up immediately. We unloaded our belongings from the car and took it into the terminal and the Budget man took the car away. It could not have been easier.

Cons:

There were no instructions anywhere about returning the car at the airport so we were confused until the Budget man showed up.

Cons:

I had reserved a Yaris, knowing that I didn't have a lot of passengers, but did have a lot of luggage so I needed something with some trunk space. I was given a Citroen B3 hatchback, with very little trunk space, only one piece of luggage fit in the trunk, but I was told that it was the same category, so I couldn't have something with more trunk space without upgrading. In the end I had to pay almost double to upgrade, but had no other choice as I had five bags and no where to keep them.

Pros:

Great service, clean car and pleasant agent. The rental car company desk was not open when we returned the car, which was no problem, but if no one had been there when we wanted to pick the car up, that would have been a problem.

Check in was horrible. Theo wanted to charge us nearly the double of what was stated in the contract. It took us over one hour and a long call with Hertz International in the US to solve the issue. And in the end we were right and the Hertz guy in Temuco just wanted to charge us unjustified extra money Drop off in Puerto Montt was great though

Reserved a car on Kayak, with a stated price including all taxes and fees. When I came to pick up, Herrz charged me an unexpected $150 in fees. And shrugged, they pointed at Kayak, Kayak has no way to register concerns. Poor business decision for both companies. I felt extremely cheated.
