Location information for Mendoza

Introduction

Mendoza is the capital of the province of the same name in Argentina and the center of winegrowing in that country. The city is an excellent operating base for trips along vineyards, but also to explore the impressive Andes. On the verge of the city lies a large park around a lake: Parque General San Martín.

Population

The city itself has 'only' 110,000 inhabitants, but almost 1 million people live in the metropolitan area of Mendoza and surroundings.

Location

Mendoza is located in the west of Argentina, on the foothills of the Andes. The highest peak of the American continent, the Aconcagua (6962 meters) lies over 100 kilometers west of the city, at the border with Chile. Mendoza's surroundings are dry by nature, but thanks to an extensive irrigation system grapes can be cultivated. The Chilean capital Santiago lies southwest of Mendoza, on the other side of the Andes. It's an experience to cover the road to Santiago, straight through the mountains, by rental car.

Economy

Mendoza's economy revolves around wine production. Olives are also grown in the area, of which olive oil is made. South of the city, in Luján de Cuyo, lies a refinery which processes the petroleum which is extracted locally. Mendoza also plays an important role in the trade with neighboring country Chile.

Airports

The city's airport is officially called Governor Francisco Gabrielli International Airport, but is better known as El Plumerillo International Airport. It's situated 8 kilometers northeast of the city center and is easily reachable by rental car via Av Acceso Norte (Ruta Nacional 40). Count on a 20- to 25-minute drive.

Public Transport

Mendoza has good public transport, consisting of buses, trolley buses and, since 2011, a streetcar line. The streetcar runs from the center via Godoy Cruz to Maipú (Gutiérrez) and will be extended to Luján de Cuyo south of Mendoza. Plans also exist to have an antique train, El Tren del Vino (the Wine Train), run through the vineyards near town.

Traffic and Parking

Mendoza is a busy, active city and it'll require some flexibility before you'll feel comfortable as far as driving is concerned. Still, it's not difficult to find your way around, as the layout of streets is very orderly. Finding a free parking place in the city center isn't easy, but there are several parking garages where you can park your rental car. Most of the locations are signposted.

Hotels

Mendoza has a good choice of hotels; most hotels can be found around the Plaza Independencia. As Mendoza is a typical commercial town, many hotels are geared towards business travelers, but you'll also find some family hotels. In contrast with the capital Buenos Aires, there aren't many short-term rental apartments. Budget hotels are mainly concentrated east of the city center.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
