Terrible experienceMy insurance (which I purchased separately from Europcar) was not recognized by the company, and I was forced to leave a $3000 deposit (on my credit card) when picking up the car - and I found out that I was also charged another $700 for a reason I ignore! When I returned the car, they insisted that there were additional scratches (which is completely false) and refused to return my deposit. I am now trying to find a way to get my deposit back (and the additional $700 charge, which I don't understand). Terrible experience. Will never use this company again.

Staff of the main car company (not National) was friendly.Literally doesn't exist. No cars available despite confirmation. Subcontracts the location through another company. Forced to get car from another company last minute. Avoid.

The staff in Calama (Miguel) was amazing! Very smooth process, great communication and convenient advises. Pick-up process very fast and easy. The blocked amount in my credit card was about 400 USD.Everything was just fine!

They tried to force an insurance purchase over a 7000 USD guarantee in case I didn't get it. I did not get the car with this company.There is no chance of getting a car without paying their own insurance (expensive obviously).

Waited for the attendant for over 90 minutes bc no one was at the front desk!

They referred me to another companyThe company was able to see my reservation in their computer, but were unwilling to honor it. They said that they only hone reservations made more than 48 hours in advance. I am concerned that I will be double charged, as it required a credit card t secure my reservation

The drop off was easy.The pick up was terrible. The whole process took 45 minutes. On top of that, a microphone fell out of the lining of the car ceiling and was very off-putting.
8.0 ExcellentMay 10 2019
A bit slow picking it up. Thankfully there was no line. The agent was pleasant enough but it took 20 minutes.
4.4 OkayApr 8 2019
Drop of was easy enough drop keys and parking ticket in a box as no one at the counter again. Refund of our 3,000,000 pesos deposit still pending a day later. Avoid this company like the plague.We waited 2.5 hours in Calama airport for someone to appear @ counter. Despite booking a large SUV none were available. We were finally given a manual dual cab pickup. Luggage for 5 people had to go in the open tray. A few days later the brakes failed. Lost 1/2 day awaiting new car with 1/2 tank gas

We did not even get a car. and there is no contact details to make a complaint. I will not be using Kayak again. It has cost me money.Do not sell car rentals that are not available.
6.0 GoodJan 11 2017
The car was okThe person at the desk didn't speak any English.
2.0 MediocreAug 2 2016
Not honestThe price seemed to be cheap.The price wasn't real. I was forced to increase the insurance and pay extra or leave a pledge for the total value of the car. They also made me feel insidiously insecure for the car i was renting so i feel renting a more expensive vehicle. The assistant was not kind from my point of view.

Drop off was easy, although I never received a receipt.The staff at the time of rental were rude and unhelpful. It also took over an hour to complete the rental. The car they gave me didn't feel safe -- it was a very high clearance vehicle that fishtailed every time I hit a bump or pothole in the road.

Car hire excess insurance in Calama

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Calama car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Calama.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Calama car rental.
