Our cruise ends in Valparaiso, and we are wanting to rent a car for a few days before our flight out of Santiago. I'm having a hard time finding info on car rental companies near the cruise ship terminal in Valparaiso. Is there one? Or a few to choose from? Or do we need to take a taxi, if so, how far and how much should that cost?

Priceline.com shows a Result for Hertz in Valparaiso, that looks sort of close on the map, but it's hard to tell and I can't find any other info for that location…

Ferries

Hi,

in about 10 days we will be traveling with a rental car from Santiago to Chiloe and want on the way back pass a piece of North Patagonia starting in Chaiten.

When I get it right this trip includes 3 ferries:
- Canal de Chacao to get via the Panamericana to the Chiloe island
- from Chiloe to Chaiten, e.g. from Castro
- in North Patagonia at Puelche

I have read that in general it might be recommended to book a ferry in advance at least for some specific routes due to the limited capacity.

Do…

Hi all

I am travelling to Chile in a few weeks.

I am trying to learn a few Chilean phrases before I go. I've got myself a Latin American phrasebook and a Chilean phrasebook.

I've read how Chilean Spanish is really different from Spanish in other countries, however am I correct in assuming that the majority of 'basic' phrases that I would need when booking a bus ticket, booking a hotel room would be same in Chile as in other Latin American countries? Apart from a few phrases, most of the…

Has anybody booked online with this airline recently?

I tried several times & the error report will appear once I press the button to proceed after I keyed in my credit card for processing. I have contacted them via their webpage & Facebook private message but no response from them at all!
Thought I play safe & get a travel agent in Chile to do booking for me but it seems that no travel agent is allowed to book on behalf since Sky Airline has converted itself as a budget airline.
The next best…

Hi,

I'll be travelling in South America from Oct - Feb. I was just wondering if you can book tours of Patagonia with local companies when you are in Chile/Argentina. I can't find much information out local tours and am hoping to spend around 2/3 weeks in the Patagonia region and wondered if there are tours are readily available and the cost if there are?

Thanks in advance.
James
