Car Hire in Mendoza

Travel consultant Caroline gives advice on hiring a car in Mendoza Argentina

Ask our Experts

I would like to hire a car from Cavas Wine Lodge, Mendoza and then self-drive to Santiago. I would like to hire from 18 Nov to and drop the car off in a hotel on 21 Nov. Could you please advise?

Asked by Judith Vogel

Whilst self-drive can easily be arranged in both destinations we don’t offer car hire from Mendoza to Santiago. Extra permits are required taking cars across borders, but also it works out incredibly expensive to drop a car off in another country. Personally, I wouldn’t recommend having a car in Mendoza as you have mentioned a stay at the Cavas Wine Lodge, where your excursions are included and you wouldn’t make best use of them as you would be restricted trying the lovely local wines. You can travel to Santiago on a comfortable tourist bus, with fantastic views of the high Andes. This can also be done on a private basis with a driver or alternatively take a short flight.
