Check the car overall before leaving the pickup zone
Pros: Like the different models that they offered
Cons: That when I picked up the car, it had a lot of imprerfections. If I haven't told the Rep, I would have taken the car like that and would have been responsible for those imperfections (dents).

Lack of automatic vehicles
Cons: They had no automatic economy size vehicles and tried to charge us more to get a larger automatic vehicle. We insisted that they give us what they have, as our reservation included an automatic and we cannot drive manual. They made us wait an hour and fight with them before giving us an automatic Ford Explorer. If a rental agency does not have what is promised it is on them to fix it NOT at the customer's expensive, both time and money. Very frustrating.

Pros: Car was relatively new, well kept and clean.
Cons: Pick up and drop off was horrendous. ACE is not the actual rental company, Econo Rental had the reservation, but under a different number. I found it after searching the rental desks at the airport for an hour and asking dozens of people in the rental area. Bait and switch!!

Pretty good would rent again
Pros: Truck fit our group of 4 and all our ski gear In the back that was good. We felt safe in it driving over the mountains. In the end they said I was charges same as my contract when I booked so no extra fees and I appreciated that.
Cons: Pick up was a little confusing the desk was easy to find but once we got paperwork had to look for the cars and someone to help. Car wasn't ready it needed to be washed and would be another 20 min. We said skip the wash it still took about 10 min. Returning same thing we weren't sure where to leave the car no one came up to us for awhile but when someone finally did they were very helpful and actually took us to refuel the car so we wouldn't be charged for not doing it before hand.

Turmoil in the middle of rental
Pros: I'm not sure how much it cost me in telephone roaming charges. I have to see on my phone bill when it arrives, But I was called twice during the rental to first, provide my credit card a second time and second, on the fourth day of the rental, I was asked to trade out that vehicle for another one. This isn't easy in the US and in Chile, when I don't have telephone connections and the language, it makes it very complicated. I still am mystified why my vacation stopped and had to focus on Avis emergencies.

Money ripping
Pros: The car was clean and good, like promised
Cons: Significant extra price for obligatory insurance. Got car with a bit leftover of gas, and was told that can return with any amount in tge tank, but on return was demanded to fill up to a quater of rank (a lot of quarrel for $10 worth of fuel, very frustrating). Still waiting the estimate for the flat ture (small puncture in the airport)

Car Was Late & They Tried to Charge Us for Damage
Pros: The car was in good condition.
Cons: The car was not ready on time. Also, when we returned the car, they tried to charge us for damage that must have been there when we rented the car but it was so miniscule that no one noticed it. The front bumper was misaligned by millimeters. We had to squat down and stare closely to even notice. Finally, over three weeks later, it seems they decided not to charge us because I received a final receipt that did not include a charge for the "damage". I know no one wants to admit that they damaged a rental car, but really--we didn't. What's more, I could have driven this car for years and never noticed.

Be careful when renting and returning to avoid problems
Pros: A bit slow - since everything was done by hand - but generally OK pick-up. Problem free rental. We were brought back to the airport terminal after drop off.
Cons: Premium categorized car did not have a CD (!), very basic configuration. Dark courtyard may have contributed to a serious problem that one of the deep scratches on the car was not marked on the check-out form and if it was not for the photos of all dents and scratches made at pick-up I would very likely have to pay for this "damage". Dated photos on the phone helped and drop off completed without further problems.

Really difficult to find dropoff location
Pros: When we couldn't find the dropoff,my husband went and found someone from Budget and he came and drove us to the location which we wouldn't have found. They said that happens all the time.
Cons: We had to wait at pickup for the car for a while. Then the car was a bit rough looking and gas tank wasn't full but they told us that. The dropoff took about an hour. Thankfully we had a lot of time planned at the airport because we needed it. Sign posts are awful. Apparently, you need to follow the sign for national rental car which is off to the right.

The rental agency held $4500 because we opted out
Pros: The car was clean and adequate
Cons: Because we did not opt in for the insurance, the rental agency held $4500 USD until we returned the car. There was no indication of this policy beforehand, nor was it listed in writing in any of the rental agreement documents.

Doing a great job with what they have
Pros: Pickup was super fast. I did have to find the area where they kept the cars, but once I located it, the actual picking up of the car was really quick. The guy that was working outside only spoke Spanish, so be aware. You're reading this in English, if you don't speak any Spanish, you are in Chile, you might have some issues. The car itself handled great. The clutch was smoother than my girlfriends car back home. The A/C pumped out a lot of cool air for the warm summer, and the car had excellent handling and plenty of tire tread. We ended up getting an economy sedan. It's too bad I forgot exactly which one it was, because that thing went down some roads I wasn't sure we were going to make it down in the Conguillio National Park. We drove it all over the place and it really did it's job well. Drop-off, again, had to find the entrance, went super smooth as well. It took about 1 minute for the guy to inspect the car, and then I had to go back inside to the counter where they charged my card. For people reading this, the guys inside the airport seem to have a decent grasp of English. I started in Spanish, but the gentleman I was working with switched to English when he said a word I didn't know, and we completed the transaction in English. So the inside part of renting and paying for the car should be easy enough if you only speak English. The outside part will be a bit more challenging.
Cons: The cars are located outside with no covered walkway. During heavy rain, it's impossible to get your luggage to the car without it getting soaked. Also, when returning the car, be aware that there's one "Entrance" and ALL rentals are in that same lot. If you're thinking there are separate lots for different agencies, like I did, you'll drive right past the entrance. IMPORTANT NOTE!!! There are no petrol stations near the airport, put fuel in the car before you get there when returning it or you'll get charged an arm and a leg. I remembered to do so, thankfully, but I want people reading this to be aware that is an issue with other travelers.
