If you’re landing in Buenos Aires International Airport (EZE), you have fourteen companies to choose from: Alamo, Avis, Budget, Cactus, Enterprise, Europcar, Keddy, Localiza, Ocarrol, Sixt, Street, Victory and Umove.
Also known as Ministro Pistarini International Airport, or Ezeiza for short, EZE is Argentina’s main transit hub, the gateway to a cosmopolitan capital and the starting point for some very iconic driving experiences.
However, be sure you know which airport you’re arriving in, as there are two: Ministro Pistarini International Airport (EZE), which handles most of Argentina’s international flights, and Jorge Newbery Airport (AEP), which handles most domestic flights.
Offices for most car rental companies can be found in the arrivals area of the main terminal building. A few, including Europcar, Umove and Keddy, are located outside the terminal area but have representatives standing by to guide travelers to their kiosks.
To select the best rental car companies at EZE, TravelMag.com analyzed rates, fleet availability and customer feedback and ranked them according to three categories: most affordable, best for families and best luxury option. Here are the results.
MOST AFFORDABLE: LOCALIZA
BEST FOR FAMILIES: LOCALIZA
Umove and Europcar also have minivans in their fleets at prices slightly lower than Localiza’s, however, finding the representative and the time it takes to get from off the plane and into a vehicle brought these companies down in our rankings.
BEST FOR LUXURY CARS: SIXT
Sixt’s office is located outside the terminal, but there will be a representative on hand to meet you in the arrivals area with your reservation.
