Can anyone tell me what the deal is about renting cars in Argentina? There are four of us (ages 20, 24, and two "Mature" parents!) Can people Under 25 drive a rental car? We are thinking of renting cars in the Cordoba and Mendoza areas. What about car insurance? Also, Can anyone recommend a reliable and reasonablaby priced company to rent from?
I should not that in most places we willbe taking buses and taxis but would like more flexibility in the areas mentioned above.

You may be surprised to find that it is much cheaper to hire a car with driver in Argentina than to rent one yourselves. We discovered this in June, and instead of renting a car or taking a bus in Mendoza, we found a company called Cia or maybe Chia cars in the Mendoza bus station. The driver took our family of four to Chile for a couple of days and then back to Mendoza, and the cost was MUCH cheaper than renting a car. Also, entering Chile by road means you don't have to pay the $100 fee if you enter via the Santiago Intl. Airport.}

I've rented a car from Alamo in Mendoza twice most satisfactorily but expensive with liability insurance,etc. Check that your credit card covers CDW in Argentina. In addition don't leave anything in the car. I had the radio stolen in the main square in Mendoza on a Sat. night.

Hey, thanks for your thoughts! What is a typical cost per day to rent a car that will hold 4 adults with bags?

Go to www.alamo.com. I think you are better off to rent for a week.
