enting a car enables travelers to greatly reduce costs and carry a more “unlimited” number of baggage items. Most importantly, travelers are spared from long lines and daunting amounts of paperwork and formalities. That being said, the major advantage of car rental happens to be the chance of improvisation and the freedom of choice when it comes to trip routes.
The traveler will get to choose what time of day to visit a tourist site, when to embark on a long journey on the road, and when or where to make a stopover, all of which make the experience unique.
Argentina features renowned international as well as smaller-sized national rent-a-car companies. Even when there is not a wide variety of vehicles to choose from, the traveler is bound to find a car that will suit both their travel type (family, adventure, etc) and their budget.
The most popular routes are those close to the mountains, such as the ones in the Argentine Northwest region (Salta, Jujuy and Tucuman), or in Bariloche and the Lake District in Northern Patagonia. In the latter, a greater level of alertness and driving skills will be required, making the 4×4 pick-up truck the best suited kind of vehicle to rent (For instance: Nissan Frontier and Toyota Hilux).
